Fusion Research has announced that they are now shipping a Genesis 4k/UHD movie server. This unit will replace the current Genesis Movie Server line and feature 12 TB of RAID storage and the ability to archive UHD discs as well as a client’s DVD and Blu-ray collection. It is available for $6999 MSRP, which is $1000 less than the previous model Genesis 12TB model.
These units output 4k video and can be controlled either through a supplied IR remote or via automation control systems such as Control4, Crestron, Elan, RTI, Savant, URC, and Vantage. In addition to the Genesis 4k server, Fusion is also introducing a 4k/UHD player with a built-in loader that can be added into existing Fusion systems. The player will add an additional discrete source to the system, and while it doesn’t have any storage, it will send that bit-for-bit copy of the UHD (or DVD and Blu-ray) to the associated server and/or NAS storage unit. The player will retail for $3999 MSRP.
Fusion has also streamlined its movie server line-up. With the recent tariff increases, they are choosing to discontinue the Premiere 2TB model, while continuing with the Premiere 4TB server at its current price. An updated dealer price list may be obtained by emailing [email protected].
