Of all the Extenders this is the premium device! I hope to get a first hand look at this while at CES.
Introducing The Niveus Media Extender – Edge – The first Windows Media Center Extender designed for the custom install channel, EDGE is ISF certified and available in time for the Holidays!
Shortly after the unveiling at CEDIA Expo 2007, Niveus Media, the leader in high-end digital entertainment for the connected home, formally introduces the Niveus Media Extender – EDGE. A hardware device that gives users the ability to enjoy the Niveus Media Center experience throughout the whole home, EDGE has become the first Windows Media Center Extender to receive the prestigious Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) Video Quality Certification.
“We’re excited to formally introduce the Niveus Media Extender – EDGE,” states Tim Cutting, CEO, Niveus Media. “EDGE represents the final building block of the Niveus Entertainment Experience, a complete end- to end server/client product architecture that allows high definition entertainment to be accessed from any room of the house. No other vendor can offer this complete solution based on the Microsoft Media Center Platform. This, along with our recent ISF certification of EDGE, is a huge advantage over competing solutions.”
Through the introductions of EDGE and the robust storage and control solutions (Niveus Storage Server and Niveus Control Server/Niveus Companion), Niveus now offers a supremely sophisticated Media Center eco-system, properly dubbed The Niveus Entertainment Experience.
