digital Ambience TM 1010 music server by coNEXTion Systems

digital Ambience TM 1010 music server by coNEXTion Systems powered by omnilala TM software technology to debut at CEDIA 2004.

coNEXTion Systems will introduce the first product in its new digital Ambience line of Ethernet home entertainment products - the digital Ambience 1010 music server - at CEDIA 2004. The music server stands out as an exceptionally easy -to -use product that intuitively manages a home user's music collection and plays it in multiple locations via a single interface. The Ambience 1010 is powered by innovative omnilala software that makes the server unique among controllers for popular digital playback devices. It does not require complex CD -ROM installations or Windows ® based computers that always need to be "turned on".


The digital Ambience 1010 is a Linux -based server featuring the new omnilala software. It is faster to install than any other product of its kind, is self -configuring, and it allows users to easily select music to play from a variety of sources and formats. The Ambience 1010 plays different music in multiple rooms simultaneously from an array of new digital players. Via the automated remote upgrade system that will add future functionality to the server automatically, the digital Ambience 1010 is expected to be able to maintain a leading position in the marketplace.

The digital Ambience 1010 features dual 200GB hard drives for storing music and auto -synchronized back up that will keep the music playing without interruption in the event of a drive failure.

The server is expected to be available for sale during the 4th quarter of 2004 and to be sold dealer direct via the coNEXTion systems' web site. Suggested Retail will be under $2499.00.
