Media storage and distribution provider Xperinet, Inc., recently announced increased high-definition capabilities in its product lineup, including advancements for customers wanting to store and stream High Definition (HD) movie content, the company says.
Highlighting the changes is an increase in video decoding capability that allows HD video in resolutions up to 1080p to be decoded and output via digital link to a flat panel display or projector for the ultimate home theater experience. Xperinet says the upgrade provides a future-proof solution for customers concerned about compatibility with new formats.
Xperinet says it views HD decoding as essential for the new wave of downloadable content arriving from Web-based movie services this year, as well as for content on Blue-Ray Disc and HD DVD, and that consumers will be able to enjoy these HD movies in full 1080p resolution through the company’s products without having to rely on scaling.
Along these lines, Xperinet says it plans to release solutions for loading Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD later this year to its servers.
Other upgrades for Xperinet’s MIRV servers for 2007 include:
- Increased throughput to support up to 20 HD streams simultaneously, or 35 Standard Definition streams.
- HD decoding for zone outputs onboard the server.
- Larger drive sizes to give customers more storage for HD movies.
