It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Imerge. However, the UK-based company has been busy cranking out products, and the latest looks like one that almost anyone could squeeze into the home — literally.
The new High Definition Mini Client is compact, making it a nice option for installations where space is at a premium.
Designed to work with Imerge’s MS1-3D media servers, this compact unit can offer local playback of DVDs and Blu-rays, including HD audio. And yes, it’s pretty compact — a little smaller than two DVD cases.
That small appearance and the included VESA 75/100 mounts make this device easy to place behind a TV screen or anywhere else that won’t disrupt the room’s decor.
Each Mini Client connects to the main MS1-3D server via Ethernet. That MS1-3D server can be placed out of sight, with the Mini Client going in each area you want the entertainment to be.
Imerge says that the MS1-3D server can store and play DVDs and both 2D and 3D Blu-rays. If you want the 3D to reach other areas of the home, more MS1-3D clients need to be added into the mix. The MS1-3D includes a companion XiVaSafe high-reliability redundant disk storage array, RAID-6 technology, and access to the XIVA on-line music store. The company also has an iPhone controller app available.
