Crestron announced a digital media server that runs an embedded version of Windows Vista. The ADMS (Adagio Digital Music System) includes a DVD or Blu-ray disk drive, up to 1TB of RAID hard disk storage, Internet Explorer, plus HDMI, S/PDIF, and component outputs, says Crestron.
In line with its home theater orientation, Crestron doesn't provide techie information such as what processor the ADMS uses, or how much random access memory it has. But, the company says, the high-styled box is available in two different versions. The base ADMS includes a DVD drive, plus two 500GB hard disk drives arranged in a redundant (RAID 1) configuration. The ADMS-BR features a Blu-ray drive and a RAID array comprised of two 1TB drives.
The ADMS is also a multi-zone music server, said to provide two independent stereo zone outputs in addition to the home theater surround sound outputs. The unit can integrate with other Crestron devices, providing "full touchpanel media browsing and control from any room." Finally, should an owner be lucky enough to have multiple ADMS units, the devices can stream media from one to another or automatically sync content between them, the company says.
