Niveus Media has announced the 2007 Pro Series media centers, n7 and n9. Pro Series Media Centers are based on Intel Viiv technology and Core 2 Duo Extreme processor and have Nvidia’s GeForce Series 7 Graphics, HDMI output, HD DVD, from 1TB to 3TB HDD, up to 4GB of Memory, boasts up to 4 television tuners (2x NTSC, 2x ATSC) and 8-channel audio.
Additionally, it includes Niveus’ proprietary Glacier Passive Cooling™ technology (active & passive cooling), Niveus ConvergencePanel™, HDMI, RS-232, an integrated flash card reader (SD, MMC), and RAID 5 Hard Drive Data Protection. The Pro Series media centers use Windows Media Center 2005 as operation system.
Niveus Media’s Professional Series n7 and n9 MSRP start at of $6,999 and $14,999, respectively, and is expected to ship September 30, 2006. I’m not surpriced about the price because Niveus Media announced its participation in the following programs: AMX’s InConcert manufacturer partner program, Crestron’s Integration Partner program and Exceptional Innovation’s Life|ware Ready program.
