Niveus showed off their soon to be released media center extender systems. With their recent addition of Media Center servers featuring 4 cable cards allowing for simultaneous recording of 4 high-def feeds at once, these new extenders will allow you to distribute that content all throughout the house. The details of pricing and the exact output and supported codec?s are still in flux but it looks like a promising solution.

Mediamax Media Servers

This is an older company I had long forgotten about. They are a competitor to Media Center and Media Center software solutions. What is interesting is they support archiving and playback of both HDDVD and Blu-ray into a single media server. The integration was very nice and included full cover art for each disc. Of course they also support archival of music, DVDs, photos, etc? Prices start at $5000 and go up from there depending on how much space you want your server to have. Mediamax has had HD-DVD support since spring, but Blu-ray support is new for CEDIA.

JVC adds the HD100 to their projector lineup and ups the contrast ratio to 30000:1 (this is without a dynamic iris). They now have motorized zoom and focus. No word on whether the ANSI contrast is improved, but the price is expected to go up.

Sony added to new SXRD front projectors. The VW200 is the higher end projector with a Xenon lamp and a 35000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. This projector is priced at $15,000.

The VW60 is the lower priced projector and this one is priced at $5,000. Street price should be lower which should make this an attractive option. Pictured here with the projector is an anamorphic lens.

 

Toshiba has a new line of LCDs’ with a thin bezel. They want to maximize the size that can fit into existing cabinets.


Revel has introduced an in-ceiling speaker in their Performa lineup. You might have seen the woofer here on some Infinity speakers. Each speaker is priced at $749.

The Revel Ultima2 series have been shipping for some time. Pictured here is Kevin Voecks standing next to the Salon2. He is extremely pleased with their performance.

Below is the complete Ultima2 series.
