VidaBox Ships New LiivNAS for On-Demand Movie & Music Distribution w. Silent Cooling & More Storage

Newly designed system is compatible with SONOS and iTunes installations, and includes Drop-n-Rip archiving for Blu-rays, DVDs, CDs, with 2-way movie metadata support for Crestron, Control4, & other control systems when used with Dune HD Media Players.

GARDEN CITY PARK, N.Y. - March 13th, 2013 - VidaBox is now shipping "The New LiivNAS," a redesign of their popular LiivNAS Media System. The new system offers the same convenient Drop-n-Rip™ drive for archiving of unencrypted CDs, DVDs, and Blu-rays, along with 2-way movie metadata for popular control systems like Crestron and Control4 when used with Dune HD Media Players, plus optional Sonos Controller and iTunes installation support. All these features are available in a new, more compact form factor with silent cooling, plus additional storage options.


"We're excited to offer this new model, as it meets many of our dealers' and integrators' existing feature requests," exclaims Steven Cheung, President of VidaBox, LLC. "The biggest change is its 100% silent cooling. The New LiivNAS can now be installed in even the most noise-sensitive environments, as it needs no fans or other moving parts for cooling. Combined with the new storage options of up to 4TB, our convenient Drop-n-Rip™ feature, affordable cost, and streaming support to affordable Dune HD Media Players, the LiivNAS becomes a winning, all-in-one Media NAS solution - perfect for almost any project!"

The New LiivNAS is now available with 2TB of storage standard, or it can be customized with 3TB or 4TB of space, allowing for storage of up to 660 DVDs or 160 Blu-rays maximum. Even with the maximum storage increase, the new design's height has actually decreased down to just 3 inches (76mm) tall, permitting easier installation in even the most space-limited setups.

"Unlike the previous model that took up about 3U of rack space," explains Cheung, "the new design's reduced height allows it to be easily placed on a shelf for centralized rack installations. With its compact size and other rich features, it's never been easier to consolidate any digital music and movie collection into a single library, and then enjoy on-demand playback with affordable units like Dune HD media players, in full 1080, and 7.1 lossless surround sound! All these features can be had in a complete package for around 2000."

The New LiivNAS is shipping and available now. For more details and specifications on this product or other items in the VidaBox family of digital entertainment and control solutions, please visit the company website at http://www.vidabox.com, call +1-516-730-7500.
