Haven’t built up that Blu-ray collection yet? Xperinet wants to give you a boost.
The company is pre-loading Blu-ray packages onto its MIRV (Multiple Independent Replay Video) servers, so not only don’t you have to worry about the longish time it takes to load a high-def flick (relative to loading standard DVDs), but you can access them quickly and easily.
Packages include movies organized by genre, like action, comedy, drama, family and more, the company says. Each package has 25 movies, mainly of new releases but some classics also mixed in, and Xperinet plans on updating packages.
Also, in case people are worried about getting the same film twice if they order more than one package, that won’t happen because titles are not repeated between packages, as much as we understand that Pirates of the Caribbean, for example, could be included in both the action and family packages.
The pre-loaded libraries also contain all of the metadata and cover art for scrolling convenience. Xperinet servers range from 1.2 to 4.5 terabytes, so there’s plenty of room to boost your Blu-ray library and bask in the high-def movie goodness.
