NAD Introduces A Network Receiver to Access Audio, Video and Picture Files Stored on PC's

Simple and affordable streaming of computer files from the comfort of the home entertainment system

CEDIA Expo, Indianapolis, IN. Sept. 10, 2004 -NAD, the highly regarded manufacturer of high -performance audio components, introduces their first media server, the NetCap™ Network Receiver, during CEDIA Expo 2004 in Indianapolis today.

NAD has devised an incredibly simple and inexpensive way to access music, movies, and pictures stored on any home networked PCs from the comfort of your home entertainment system. The NetCap Network Receiver treats your PC network simply as another AV source, and delivers any designated content to the big screen, including music and video files that can be heard in complete surround sound.

All popular music formats (MP3, WMA), picture formats (JPEG, Kodak), and even movies (MPEG 4/ DIVX) are available using either an Ethernet hardwired connection, or 802.11G (including 802.11b) wireless access. Even Internet Radio broadcasts can be streamed to the home theater system via the NetCap Network Receiver.

NAD provides a piece of software that needs to be loaded on all the computers in the network. Then using the supplied remote with the NetCap Network Receiver, users can access all computers in the network and all the files on those computers. Music, movie and picture files are selected from any computer quickly and easily via the on -screen display and wireless remote handset.

An assortment of I/O connections are provided on the NetCap including an additional USB port on the unit's front panel. Using a progressive -scan component video output, picture quality of video content is stunning. High quality music playback from compressed file formats is assured using NAD's superior decoding, D/A conversion, and high quality analog circuits.

The NetCap Network Receiver can be seen in Booth # 314 at the Indianapolis Convention Center during CEDIA Expo 2004. The NetCap will ship in 4th quarter 2004 with the suggested retail price of $499.
