Mozaex's New Solo 1 Blu-ray Server For $4,300

Mozaex claims their new Blu-ray server, the Solo 1, breaks size and price barriers -no kidding for the Solo 1 retails for $4,300 making it one of the most expensive Blu-ray anythings you can buy today. While it may be a Blu-ray server it's hard to justify spending $4,300 on anything centered on a format that clearly has a shelf life.

"The Mozaex Solo 1 system allows instant playback of media either stored locally or optionally on a networked server," said Mozaex CEO Douglas Kihm. "The Solo 1 plays media including Blu-ray and DVD movies, CD and MP3 music, photos and on-demand NetFlix movies and Pandora music via the Mozaex unique NetPlay• online media service. Any media can be played simultaneously in any room resulting in unprecedented ease, elegance, and excitement."

The Solo 1 is based on an Intel Atom processor and NVidia® ION•, CUDA• and PureVideo• technology. With total power dissipation averaging only 50 watts, the Solo 1 delivers Blu-ray movies in full HDMI 1.3 1080p with 7.1 HD Audio at a fraction of the power needed by other Blu-ray servers.

"The Solo 1's unprecedented low power dissipation results in whisper quiet operation," Kihm added. The Solo 1's compact measurements of only 11.75in. (W) X 2.87in. (H) X 9in. (D) allows it to be mounted behind a TV, in a rack or on a shelf. The Solo 1 is the perfect solution for yachts where rack space is a premium.

The Solo 1 simplifies entertainment by providing instant access to your entire collection of movies, music and photos. To operate, simply plug the Solo 1 into a TV, audio system, and the Internet and you are ready to enjoy entertainment at its best.

Solo 1 is the perfect, affordable solution for one to three room projects that only require 1TB to 6TBs of non-RAID media storage. Up to three Solo 1s can share their onboard 1TB or 2TBs of storage. On average 2TBs can store either 125 DVDs or 25 Blu-rays.

To further expand the Solo system, a Mozaex Server can be added, as well as add up to seven Mozaex players. For larger projects, Mozaex offers the "Player/Server" family which virtually supports an unlimited number of players and RAID 6 storage.

A Solo 1 without on-board storage called the Player 1 is also shipping that plays media stored on the company's networked storage server. The Player 1's USA retail pricing begins at $2,495 USD.

The Solo 1 may be controlled by a number of control methods including the included IR

Remote Controller, the included RF Keyboard and a wide selection of third party control systems from companies such as Crestron, AMX, Control4, Philips, URC, RTI, HomeLogic, NetStream, among many others. A server is required for most full 2-way touch panel control systems, such as Crestron ®.

Mozaex offers at no-charge software "Interface Modules" that support the leading control systems. For example, Mozaex offers a Control4 module that does not require a server to control both 2-way music and 1-way movies and other media via the Mozaex on-screen interface.

To minimize on-site service, Mozaex includes with every Solo 1 a service utility called SurePlay• that allows the dealer or Mozaex to easily login to the Solo to perform period checkups and update software. In addition, an EasyUp• utility allows users to easily perform updates to the Mozaex software.

Mozaex offers no-charge webinar training to its dealers and free standard software updates.

Mozaex products are covered by a limited 3-year warranty and free product lifetime telephone support.
