Hanover MA–Inteset’s Denzel DTCD30-Si media server now supports four internal CableCARD tuners. In addition, units sold with this configuration contain an Intel Quad-Core processor needed to support simultaneous usage of the tuners.
The server can now record up to four high-definition premium cable broadcasts at once. In addition, the new unit responds to the needs of Inteset dealers that have requested interoperability with the HDMI, 1080p capable XBox 360 as well as the new second-generation Media Center Extender units (MCX) coming on the market this holiday season which include those by Linksys and D-Link. Up to five additional MCX zones can be added. Four of those zones can access Live TV simultaneously. Protected recordings are stored on the server and can be streamed to any MCX box on the network. Furthermore, Inteset has enhanced its multi-zone music entertainment module to work with the MCX units generating more value add.
“We’ve given our dealers the flexibility they’ve been looking for,” said David Hirsh, director of Inteset business development. “Dealers can now offer the low cost but powerful MCX platform to their customers to distribute media, including protected premium HD cable content around the house. Individuals can continue to use Inteset’s Vana media extender to stream DVD movies and watch live or recorded premium cable content locally.”
