MOZAEX LAUNCHES BLUWAVS CD QUALITY DOWNLOAD, STREAMING STORE

Salt Lake City – October 17, 2013 – Mozaex™, the premiere manufacturer of multi-room, multi-media Blu-ray entertainment servers and 7.1 HD Headphones, announced today the launch of a revolutionary new online CD quality music store called BLUWAVS™ MUSIC.

The company demonstrated BLUWAVS MUSIC, BLUWAVS 7.1 HEADPHONES and its entire product line of Blu-ray Entertainment Servers at the recent 2013 CEDIA Expo.

BLUWAVS MUSIC Combines iTunes Convenience and Selection with CD Quality

“I am thrilled to see that Mozaex is leading the way to what will hopefully become a renaissance in the appreciation and demand of high quality music,” said Mozaex CEO Douglas Kihm. “A majority of the more than 500 million people who listen to iTunes, MP3, and other digital music have no idea how much better CD quality music sounds. With more than 600,000 CD quality albums to download or stream, BLUWAVS MUSIC is the first store to combine the convenience and selection of iTunes with the quality of CDs. BLUWAVS MUSIC is truly how music was meant to sound.”

According to Kihm, when it comes to music, people want the best of all worlds. “Until now music lovers had to compromise quality, selection, convenience, or music player compatibility. BLUWAVS MUSIC offers for the first time a convenient way to download and playor instantly stream virtually any album in their original CD quality on any device.”

Kihm added that BLUWAVS MUSIC eliminates the hassle of buying and ripping physical CDs into a higher quality format such as FLAC, ALAC or WAV. “We have made BLUWAVS MUSIC easy to use and compatible with virtually every music device includingiPhone, iPAD, Apple TV, Android phones and tablets, SONOS, ROKU, OPPO, Astell & Kern plus Media Servers, Windows PCs, and Apple MACs.”

BLUWAVS MUSIC is the Largest CD Quality Music Store. Supports Downloads and Streaming.

With more than 600,000 CD quality albums to choose from, BLUWAVS MUSIC represents the world’s largest selection of downloadable or streamable CD quality albums.

The user can select one or more high-res formats, namely FLAC, ALAC, or WAV. They may also choose to have the CD disc shipped to them in the U.S. or Canada. If the album is not immediately available for downloading, then they will be notified when the album is available, which averages two to three days.

All three audio file formats are digitized at the album’s original mastered sample rate. All current albums are sampled at 44kHz/16 bits or “CD quality”. Future “Master Studio quality” albums are being planned for release with both two channel stereo and 5.1 channels of audio sampled at 96kHz/24 bits.

The average “CD quality” music sample bit rate equates to 1.4Mbps.CD quality songs played at 1.4Mbps have a music bit rate that is on average four to five times that of MP3 or iTunes “AAC” songs which are typically played at a sample bit rate between 250Kbps to 320Kbps. BLUWAVS MUSIC is the first store to offer instant streaming of CD quality music from the cloud. Based on Google®Drive you can either download your music or directly stream it from the cloud.

BLUWAVS MUSICSatisfies the “Sweet Sound Spot” of the Digital Music Market

“What’s nice about BLUWAVS MUSIC is that you can generally hear the improved CD quality compared to MP3 or iTunes when played on virtually any music player and a better than average pair of headphones or speakers,” added Kihm. “Virtually every domestic or international album that has been released is available in CD quality. If we don’t have it we will try and get it for you.”

Kihm continued, “BLUWAVS MUSIC truly satisfies the ‘sweet sound spot’ of the market because everyone can now enjoy their favorite music downloaded or streamed with CD quality on virtually any music player.”

BLUWAVS MUSIC Streaming Apps Are Available for Android and iPhone

Mozaex also offers 3rd party Android and iPhone Apps to stream your music directly from Google Drive.

Dealers and their Clients Can Now Capitalize on the Online Music Revolution

“To meet the needs of the music aficionado who would prefer to have their dealer setup their home audio system with BLUWAVS MUSIC, we are also making BLUWAVS MUSIC available via Mozaex’s network of 15 international distributors and more than 750 dealers in 27 countries,” Kihm explained. “Authorized Mozaex dealers may sign up to the BLUWAVS MUSIC affiliate program in the Mozaex dealer portal.”

The BLUWAVS MUSIC store will soon be accessible on the company’s media servers and may be played on the company’s award-winning BLUWAVS FIJI 7.1 HD Audio Headphones. BLUWAVS are the first headphones to deliverdiscrete 7.1 HD Audio via an HDMI headphone receiver called the Blender.

The Air Force Museum Theatre Flies in 3D with Severtson Screens on 60ft x 80ft SēVision 3D GX Projection Screen

photo credit/copyright: Mike Ullery

Dayton, Ohio, Oct. 3, 2013 – Severtson Corporation (www.severtsonscreens.com), a global leader in innovative and quality projection screens, is pleased to announce that the Air Force Museum Theatre located inside the National Museum of the United States Air Force® at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, has installed a 60-foot x 80-foot SēVision 3D GX projection screen in its recently renovated 400-seat theater. The installation was part of an overall $800,000 audio and video digital conversion project.

“As a U.S. company we are proud that the Air Force Museum Theatre chose our SēVision 3D GX projection screen for use in its renovated theater,” said Kirk Severtson, Severtson Corp. COO. “The screen has a 2.4 gain on our cinema perforated material, which is the same coating we have used on thousands of large format cinema screens worldwide. The cutting-edge 250:1 signal to noise ratio of the SēVision 3D GX realizes the full potential of the 3D experience. A screen of this size typically takes 10 weeks to build but we were able to make this screen in six weeks. We always do whatever it takes for our customers, but being able to do this for our military was an honor.”

Severtson Corp. partnered with Franklin Designs, Inc. of Ridgeland, Miss. and D3D Cinema of Evanston, Ill. on this project.

“We were very pleased that for a project of this scope and size that Severtson came through for us,” said Art Mercurio, vice president, technical services for D3D cinema. “The finish on the screen looks fantastic, and the Severtson team made sure that the screen was in perfect shape after installation.”

The Air Force Museum Theatre is operated by the Air Force Museum Foundation, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The Foundation was established in 1960 as a philanthropic, non-profit organization to assist the Air Force in the development and expansion of the facilities of the National Museum of United States Air Force®.

Touted as “The largest screen in southwest Ohio”, the recently installed Severtson screen is an integral part of the Air Force Museum Theatre’s new state-of-the-art digital 3D system featuring dual Barco 4K projectors, Qube’s “Xi” integrated media blocks, MasterImage 3D polarizers, and a premium 7.1 surround system from QSC Audio.

“We are currently showing multiple 3D movies in our theatre, and the Severtson SēVision screen does an incredible job bringing these features to life for our audiences,” said Mary Bruggeman, Chief of Theatre Operations for Air Force Museum Foundation Inc. “The SēVision meets or exceeds everything we require of it.”

The SēVision 3D GX used by the Air Force Museum Theatre meets the Digital Immersive Giant Screen Specifications (DIGSS). DIGSS is an industry standard promoted by the Giant Screen Cinema Association (GSCA), an organization that Severtson Corporation is a part of.

Now in its 27th year, Severtson Corporation continues to be a global leader in innovation and quality. Severtson’s extensive experience in manufacturing home theater and large cinema screens has given them the expertise to meet the needs of the professional and consumer AV markets. Their dedicated employees and state-of-the-art robotic application systems give Severtson the production capacity to meet almost any need.

“The PDS-LCHB adapter allows for the accommodation of a 37- to 70-inch flat panel display to an existing ceiling mount mast, such as one previously used to support a bulky tube television, so there’s no need to replace the entire mount,” said Keith Fulmer, president of Video Mount Products. “Designed for both practical and aesthetic purposes, the PDS-LCHB is the ideal multi-function option for a host of applications, such as in schools, restaurants, bars, health clubs, and arenas.”

The PDS-LCHB has a maximum flat panel hole pattern of 860mm x 500mm, rotates 360 degrees with an adjustable 0 degree to 15 degree tilt, uses standard 1.5inch NPT masting, has a load capacity of 180 lbs., and is complete with powder coat finish.
