Richmond, VA - January 30, 2007 - Velocity Micro, the premier independent builder of custom, high performance computers and workstations, announced today the availability of their groundbreaking Vista media center PCs, the CineMagix Grand Theater and the CineMagix Pro Cinema. The CineMagix Grand Theater, which was unveiled at Digital Experience earlier this month, is Intel-based with up to 2.25 terabytes of storage, while the CineMagix Pro Cinema features AMD products. Both PCs feature premium a/v components and the same sleek design.
"We're bringing to market something very special. The audio/video quality is second to none in the consumer electronic market with Dolby Master Studio certification and a near perfect home theater benchmark score. We also took a radically different approach to the whole out of box experience-including the cables and documentation that consumers have come to expect from their home theater A/V equipment, available for the first time with a PC-based media center, and only from Velocity Micro," said Chris Morley, Velocity Micro's Director of Product Development.
The new media center PCs with Vista deliver a whole new level of media management and playback. The CineMagix Grand Theater and Pro Cinema feature the groundbreaking internal AMD TV Wonder Digital Cable Tuner, allowing users to watch and record HD digital cable content on their PCs for the first time. The new media centers also feature Blue-ray and HD-DVD playback for the highest resolution, home cinema quality playback available. Gamers can enjoy first class DirectX 10 graphics from NVIDIA and AMD, setting the stage for the next generation of games, and play games on HDTVs from the comfort of their couch.
"The CineMagix Grand Theater and Pro Cinema are powerful PCs in disguise. They're loaded with the industry's most advanced technology, but their low-profile design makes them look like stereo components. They fit right in with your living room set-up," said Morley.
