THE MOZAEX "CHROMA" IS WORLD’S FIRST SERVER TO SUPPORT BLU-RAY, iTUNES STORE AND ULTRAVIOLET VUDU MOVIE SERVICE; LEGALLY PLAYS BLU-RAYS AND DVDS WITHOUT AN EXPENSIVE, COMPLICATED DISC-CHANGER

Salt Lake City – June 25, 2012 – Mozaex™, the premiere manufacturer of multi-room, multi-media Blu-ray entertainment servers, announced today it has begun shipping Chroma, a new series of multi-room Entertainment Servers that combines iTunes with Blu-ray, NetFlix, and UV movies.

Chroma’s “iBlu” combines the popularity and ease of iTunes with the quality of Blu-ray

“Mozaex has once again set a new value proposition in home entertainment by introducing the first Entertainment Server that combines the features of a Blu-ray Server and an Apple TV into a single appliance for under $3,000,” said Mozaex CEO Douglas Kihm. “By combining the quality of Blu-ray® with the popularity and ease of Apple TV®, iTunes®, NetFlix®, and Ultraviolet® (UV), Chroma offers our dealers a unique opportunity to expand sales while dramatically improving their clients’ entertainment value and experience. At these extraordinary prices, everyone can now afford luxury entertainment.”

Kihm added that no other multi-room entertainment server offers this incredible price-to-performance value. “The nearest competition cost thousands of dollars more, requires an unreliable, complicated mechanical disc-changer, and doesn’t support iTunes, UV, photos, home videos or online media. It is a perfect replacement for the discontinued Sony Blu-ray disc changer used in thousands of single room projects and perfect for multiple room projects with budgets under five thousand dollars”.

Chroma includes “iBLU”, which supports both the iTunes movies/music store and Blu-ray movies. Chroma also includes a feature called iPlay™, which allows the user to play their iTunes library of movies and music using Apple’s elegantly designed, free iPad/iPhone “Remote” App. Chroma works with the Apple AirPort Express unit so Chroma’s music can be extended to another room wirelessly.

“iTunes, Apple TV and iPad/iPhone iDevices have revolutionized multi-room music and touch panel control, yet the dealer channel has not yet been able to fully capitalize on this profitable revolution until now,” Kihm continued. “With a price of a music-only server, Mozaex dealers can now offer a full featured multi-room iTunes Music Server plus a full featured Blu-ray and iTunes movie server with iDevice control.”

You can both buy and browse media via its HD TV interface and, unlike Apple TV, Chroma doesn’t require a TV to play music when using the Apple Remote App. You can also add unlimited Chroma Sonnets music players for multi-room iTunes music and other online media throughout the home.
Chroma Sonnet affordably adds wireless music playback to any room in the house

Sonnet is a wireless music-only player, for use when only music and streaming media is needed. Sonnet plays loaded CDs, iTunes, imported music files and Pandora® radio. Sonnet may be controlled with an iPhone/iPad, a two-way Touch Panel or with its included RF Remote. Sonnet’s TV user interface offers the same HD Cover Art library that is used on other Chroma players and servers.

Chroma 4Play allows you to play discs, downloaded, streaming and mobile movies and music

Only Mozaex plays all four forms of media including discs, downloaded, streaming and mobile. Now with Ultraviolet VUDU support, Chroma allows you to enjoy your UV authorized DVDs and Blu-rays on your mobile iPhone/iPAD, Android, Windows laptop, or via the Chromas VUDU online library. Chroma also plays photo slide shows and more than 10 formats of downloaded videos and home videos.

Chroma comes with a RF handheld remote and may also be controlled by a number of other control systems including Control4®, Vantage®, iPad/iPhone®, Elan® g!, RTI® , Crestron® and many others.

Chroma is sleek, light and whisper quiet

Chroma is enclosed in a compact, ultra-quiet chassis that may be mounted into either a 1.75 inch tall, 1U rack space, behind a TV with its included VESA mounting bracket, or on a shelf. All models weigh less than five pounds. It is especially useful on yachts where large disc-changers cannot be used.

Chroma does not require an expensive, complicated disc-changer and is fully legal

While Kaleidescape™ recently lost a legal case with the DVDCCA, Mozaex continues to be contractually compliant and legal because Mozaex does not ship with DVDCCA’s or other unlicensed decryption software. In addition, since Mozaex has never shipped with any unlicensed decryption software, Mozaex products do not require a cumbersome and expensive disc-changer to play movies.

It is Mozaex’s belief that the recent court ruling against Kaleidescape reaffirms that Mozaex products are legal since Mozaex does not make, traffic, or provide unlicensed decryption software. Mozaex also believes that the court reaffirmed that the DMCA law does not prohibit the use of decryption software for legal purposes which includes storing content you own for your own personal use.

The court interpreted the DMCA law as follows: “A reading of the DMCA makes it clear that its prohibition [of decryption software] applies to the trafficking in and marketing of devices that would circumvent encryption technology, not to the users of such technology.”

As it is with the 100 million PCs sold every year, Mozaex does not ship with or require unlicensed decryption software to be installed or used to play a wide variety of local and online media. It is the user’s responsibility to obey all copyright laws. Mozaex does not promote or approve of the unlawful use of its products.
