VidaBox Ships LiivJACK mini - An Add-on for High-Speed, Multi-disc Archiving Using LiivNAS Systems

New add-on allows Drop-n-Rip archiving of up to (3) CDs, DVDs, or Blu-ray discs when connected to a LiivNAS. Drop-n-Rip provides automated download of cover art, plot synopsis, and other rich metadata for easy browsing via TV interface or integrated automation control systems.

GARDEN CITY PARK, N.Y. - September 8, 2014 - VidaBox LLC is debuting a multi-disc archiving system dubbed LiivJACK mini. About half the size of its larger brother, the LiivJACK, it sports (2) Blu-ray/DVD/CD combo drives. When connected into a VidaBox LiivNAS unit, users can archive up to (3) unencrypted CDs, (3) DVDs, (3) Blu-rays, or any mix of discs - all at the same time - complete with automated cover art and metadata tagging. Other than physically inserting the disc, there is no input required from users. No remotes, no screens, and no interfaces are used or required with the LiivJACK and LiivNAS combination.

"Many clients have asked for a more affordable solution to quick archive large disc libraries with our LiivNAS systems - and the LiivJACK mini is our answer!" exclaims Steven Cheung, President of VidaBox LLC. "At half the cost of a standard LiivJACK, it brings the same efficiency and speed, into a more compact form factor. For even faster archiving speed - just add yet another LiivJACK mini! (2) LiivJACK minis can be connected into the same LiivNAS system - allowing anyone to 'Drop-n-Rip' up to (5) discs at a time!"

Similar to the larger LiivJACK model, LiivJACK mini connects into any LiivNAS system via Plug-n-Play USB connections. No user configuration is required -LiivNAS automatically detects a new LiivJACK mini, and discs can be inserted into the (2) additional Drop-n-Rip disc trays immediately. Upon insertion - cover art, title details, and other rich metadata are all automatically downloaded, while the disc can be digitally archived losslessly.

"There's no compromise in audio-video quality with LiivJACK mini, even when we triple our archiving speed," Cheung explains. "Installers can even purchase them as a part of their integrator / dealer demo kits, and lease it to their clients for use to quickly generate income. It's ideal for digitizing large music CD collections or any other large library. For example - instead of taking 30 days to archiving an entire family's media collection using our LiivNAS - one disc at a time, LiivJACK mini can cut down archiving time by 66%, to just 10 days! Our LiivJACK mini and LiivNAS combination is the smart choice for fast, simple, and easy archiving!"

The LiivJACK mini can be seen along with Dune HD in CEDIA booth #1636, where it will be working in conjunction with Dune HD's Media Players and their LiivNAS: Dune Edition system. LiivJACK mini will be shipping shortly around late September.
