CHAMPAIGN, IL ─ January 8, 2006 ─ CodexNovus, the leader in stand -alone and networked media server products, is proud to introduce the HDcodex DV -1 Digital Media Reader, a media input device that makes it easy for users to upload their entire digital media collections to the digital media library of their choice.
