Mvix’s flagship product, HDHome, is a device designed to combine high-definition home entertainment, gaming, and home computing into a single unit with massive storage space for HD media files.
“This high-end, comprehensive system fills a void in the market where users demand versatility and system flexibility,” said Mvix’s VP of business development, Mike Mallon. “Our customers have been asking us for a device where they can store terabytes of their movie collection and have access to it from anyplace, anywhere. HDHome is a response to such a market feedback.”
Built along the traditional home theater PC (HTPC) architecture, Mvix HDHome leverages the latest Windows 7 Media Center platform. According to the manufacturer the device enables a consumer to browse thousands of internet TV stations, watch Netflix or Hulu, and share media across the home network. HDHome also works as the universal platform for PC-based gaming and multi-player online games, the company says.
The HDHome media center features an embedded slot-load, Blu-ray player with PowerDVD for a complete HD entertainment experience. Eliminating the need for an additional set-top BD box in the living room, HDHome aims to be the center for all things HD, and Digital Media. With an embedded TV tuner, users will be able to watch, pause, and record a live TV program.
Apart from true 1080p HD movies and images, HDHome also allows rich, HD 3D digital music over HDMI and optical digital audio out.
HDHome provides expandable storage capacity, as well, featuring RAID-enabled, hot-swappable HDD bays.
HDHome is being launched in two sizes: HDHome S2 (a two-bay version, priced at $999)and HDHome S4 (a four-bay version, priced at $1,599). Both models will feature 10/100/1000 network, Embedded Wireless-N, BD Drive, Media Card Slots, HDMI out, Optical Audio Out, TV Tuner and a full, licensed version of Windows-7 Home Premium disk.
