Fusion Research has introduced a new product to its movie server lineup, the Premiere Movie Server, an entry level piece that replaces the Studio Movie Server.
Based upon the recently announced EPIC platform, the Premiere retails at $2995 with an internal capacity for approximately 225 DVDs or 45 Blu-ray with the ability to expand the storage to over a thousand movies for as little as $495 license fee and adding your own storage. Premiere also features EasyLoad, the unattended movie loading service for both Blu-ray and DVDs. Simply insert the disc into the front of the server and even without a display turned on, the system will automatically begin importing the movie.
The Premiere Movie Server has the ability to add an extra discrete movie feed using the also new Fusion Zone Player, which retail for $1495. Now two separate zones can be accomplished for under $4500 retail.
“I’ve had the chance to be the first Control4 dealer to test out the new Premiere Movie Server with the EPIC platform,” said Kevin Luther, owner of Blackwire Designs. “I love the fact that you can import both DVD and Blu-ray right in the front of the box. When combining with the Control4 two-way IP driver, you have a very powerful movie solution that is great for any home. With Sony Blu-ray changers now being discontinued, I think Premiere has the chance to be the defacto choice for Control4 installs everywhere.”
The Premiere Movie Server is available immediately to system integration professionals.
