Now available, Crestron’s ADC-200BR and CEN-NAS-4TB are the latest additions to the company’s ADMS Intermedia Delivery System line.
The Crestron ADC-200BR 200-disc Blu-ray changer
The ADC-200BR 200-disc Blu-ray changer can be cascaded to hold 1,000 discs, the CEN-NAS-4TB features four hot-swappable 1TB hard drives with RAID 5 protection, and both are designed to integrate with the ADMS.
Marketed by Crestron as “more than just another media server,” the ADMS is designed to access any type of entertainment or information from a variety of content providers and display selections in full 1080p and digital surround sound.
Adding one or more ADC-200BR 200-disc Blu-ray changers automatically integrates an entire collection of DVDs and high-definition Blu-ray Discs into the ADMS media library. Discs are not “ripped” to the hard drive, so copyrighted content can be legally stored and played. The CEN-NAS-4TB can store 1,500 movies and 150,000 high-quality songs, and managing all these media files is easy. Because the CEN-NAS-4TB appears as a network drive on a Windows, Mac, or Linux computer, you can just drag and drop files onto the CEN-NAS-4TB and the ADMS adds them to the media library as well.
“Whether content is located in the ADMS’s own hard drive, the Blu-ray changer, NAS drive, a home or network computer (even the Internet) one search is all it takes. You don’t have to tell ADMS where to look or do multiple searches to find what you want,” observed Vin Bruno, Crestron’s director of marketing. “It has our exclusive, integrated Web browser too, so you can surf the Web, check e-mail or watch live streaming video in HD. For all its unique features, the ADMS has already become known as ‘the ultimate content machine.’”
In the ADMS environment, you can directly play, stream, or download any choice of movie or music title from the onscreen menu. Exclusive WorldSearch technology performs “intermedia” searches, instantly displaying the results in a graphical onscreen menu, collecting and displaying the full spectrum of available content related to any entered keyword. Selections are organized and displayed based on relevance and quality.
