Imerge at Cedia UK

Imerge, Europe's leading innovator for hard disk based audio appliances, will be exhibiting it's SoundServer range at the CEDIA UK Expo in Birmingham from 3rd to 5th February 2004.

Visit Imerge in Hall 3 stand B12 for a demonstration of the latest SoundServers working in conjunction with a number of compatible control solutions and with the latest user -friendly applications.

SoundServer has proved itself as a convenient way for users to store and access thousands of CD's from one central device. It is now firmly established as the preferred multi -room audio source for a large number of custom installers throughout the world, providing a range of options for discrete audio sources in up to 16 separate rooms.

The S2000 incorporates a TV interface with Album Cover illustration, up to 3 discrete outputs and now offers increased storage with up to 250 Gb available. The M2000 now has a maximum storage option of 500G and is now also supplied ready to fit into 19" rack mounts. Later in 2004, Imerge will launch the s2000 Mk2. Details of this exciting new product development will be available on the stand.

As well as general SoundServer functionality and integration with leading 3rd party controllers, Imerge will also be demonstrating XiVA -Tacta for Pocket PC, a software application that allows users to operate any SoundServer using a pocket PC based PDA communicating over a wireless LAN. The latest version now allows for the control of the Netstreams 'Musica' multi room control solution.

The NP 200 Networked Audio System will also be displayed. This neat device allows music to be streamed from the SoundServer over Ethernet and Imerge will be demonstrating the NP200 working over a wireless LAN.
