FUZE Media Systems Introduces Entry-Level Whole-Home Media Solution for Smaller Residences
FUZE “Mini Edition” Is a Complete, One-Box Solution | Electronic House Expo Spring 2008
SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–FUZE Media Systems, makers of the industry’s most complete whole-home media system, today introduced an entry-level solution targeted at vacation homes, condominiums, and apartments. The “Mini Edition” delivers the same ease-of-use, reliability, and whole-home functionality associated with a FUZE Media System—live & recorded TV, movies, music, photos, and more—but is specifically designed for residences with 2-3 TVs.
The announcement reflects the company’s mission to enable consumers with every budget to enjoy a whole-home media system that can store, manage, and distribute all of a consumer’s desired home entertainment. The Mini Edition’s price and performance characteristics radically expand the market to which dealers can sell whole-home media systems.
Bob Silver, VP of Sales & Marketing at FUZE, explained that “the industry is hungry for a cost-sensitive whole-home media solution with FUZE reliability, ease-of-use, and performance. Without sacrificing reliability or performance, this solution is perfectly suited for smaller homes and apartments. We’re excited that we’ve been able to deliver a whole-home media system, in a smaller form factor, with identical performance to our flagship FUZE Media System.”
The FUZE Mini Edition comes standard with all necessary hardware and software for 2 video and 4 audio zones; a third video zone is offered as an option. The product works with EasyControl UPB, is FuzeTunes ready, and is 100% expandable and upgradable to a full FUZE Media System. The system’s server will come standard with 4GB memory, 750GB storage, and a 2.2GHZ processor. The solution will be available in Q2 2008.
Integrators interested in learning more are encouraged to visit booth #2216 at EHX Spring in Orlando or attend one of the company’s manufacturer’s training events at the show on 3/13 and 3/15.
