MOZAEX RELEASES NEW APPLE IOS APP FOR MEDIA SERVER

Salt Lake City – August 13, 2013 – Mozaex™, the premiere manufacturer of multi-room Blu-ray entertainment servers and peripherals, announced today that its new Apple iOS App for iPads and iPhones is now available for free on the Apple App store.

The company also announced that a new Control4 2-Way App and a Vantage 2-Way App will be released at the 2013 CEDIA Expo, held in Denver from Sept. 26-28 at the Colorado Convention Center, booth 1810.

Mozaex Offers Widest Selection of Control System Apps

“Mozaex continues to lead the industry in providing the most extensive support for control systems,” said Mozaex CEO Douglas Kihm. “Mozaex now offers more control system interface drivers and Apps than any other Media Server vendor, including exclusive support for Vantage.”

The company boasts support for Crestron, AMX, Control4, Elan, RTI, Apple, Vantage, Savant, URC, Bitwise, and NetStreams among other OEM custom-designed control systems.

Mozaex is First Media Server to allow Control Systems to Play iTunes Movies and Music

“Ever since Apple blocked IP control of Apple TV, control systems have been unable to access iTunes movies,” Kihm continued. “Mozaex uniquely imports iTunes movies and music into its library so all compatible Mozaex control systems are now able to play iTunes movies and music from one common cover art library. You can also purchase iTunes media right from the Mozaex interface.”

Mozaex Apple App Runs on All iOS Devices and Plays iTunes Movies and Music

The Mozaex Apple App runs on all iOS devices, including the iPad, iPad Mini, iPhone and iTouch.

The Mozaex Apple App provides a simple way to search and browse stored media collections by cover art and search terms. The Apple App controls the playback of your movies, music, photo slide shows and online media including iTunes movies and music, Pandora radio, and Netflix movies. The Apple is available for free on the Apple App store. Mozaex X704.1 OS or later is required to use the App.

New Control4 Driver Controls Movies, Music, Photos, iTunes and More

The new Control4 driver upgrades the original V1.0 Mozaex Control4 driver with support for 2-Way control of movies and music, including iTunes movies and music.

The Control4 driver provides a simple way to search and browse stored media collections by cover art and search terms. The driver controls the playback of movies, music, photo slide shows and online media including iTunes movies and music, Pandora radio, and Netflix movies.

The Control4 App runs on all current Control4 Touch Panels and Remotes and will be available for free along with the entire Mozaex product line on the Control4 online store.

New Exclusive Vantage App is First Vantage Media Server Control App

The new Vantage driver was co-developed with Vantage®, and was demonstrated at the North X Northwest dealer event that was held at the Stage West in Toronto, Canada May 29, 2013. The Mozaex-Vantage App provides control of movies, music, photos, iTunes, Pandora, and Netflix, and is compatible with both legacy and the newly released Vantage Equinox Touch Panels.

“Mozaex is honored to have been exclusively selected by Vantage to co-develop a Vantage 2-Way Control Interface for our Entertainment Servers,” added Kihm. “With this new 2-Way Control App, Vantage dealers can now offer a completely integrated Vantage-Mozaex multi-room entertainment solution.”

Mozaex Control System offers complete iTunes Online Store and playback of movies and music

“The Mozaex control system solution is unique in that it is the first Entertainment Server that allows you to purchase, download and play in multiple rooms, iTunes movies and music,” said Kihm. “By combining the quality of Blu-ray® with the popularity and ease of iTunes®, the Mozaex control system solution offers custom integrators a unique opportunity to expand sales while dramatically improving their clients’ entertainment value and experience”.

Kihm continued, “iTunes has revolutionized convenient and affordable online movies and music yet the dealer has not yet been able to fully capitalize on this profitable revolution until now. At a similar price of a music-only server, custom integrators can now offer an iTunes movie and music server plus a full featured Blu-ray movie server with touch panel 2-way control.”

When only music playback is required in a zone, Mozaex offers the Sonnet wireless music-only player. Sonnet plays loaded CDs, iTunes, imported music files and Pandora® radio. Sonnet may be controlled by any of the 2-Way Mozaex control systems.

Severtson Screens Features SēVision 3D GX “Micro Perf” Curved Screens at 2013 CEDIA Expo

Mesa, Ariz., August 1, 2013 – Severtson Screens (www.severtsonscreens.com), a global leader in innovative and quality projection screens for the home theater, commercial, and pro AV markets, is pleased to announce that it will feature its new curved SēVision 3D GX “Micro Perf” screens during CEDIA Expo 2013, held in Denver from Sept. 26-28 at the Colorado Convention Center, booth 3327. The SēVision 3D GX is now available.

“The SēVision 3D GX offers the ultimate 3D home theater experience,” said Kirk Severtson, Severtson Screens COO. “It is the only screen in the home theatre industry to offer PristiVue© technology, a revolutionary 3D coating on micro-perforated screen material. No other company has been able to apply a hi-performance silver coating for the passive 3D viewing experience.”

Proudly Made in the USA, the result both maximizes the effect of 3D cinema while at the same time offering an acoustically transparent audio experience, as well, by allowing home theatre speaker placement directly behind the screen with no noticeable reduction in audio quality.

PristiVue technology is the cornerstone of Severtson projection screen surfaces. PristiVue allows the viewer to see what the director originally intended for them to see in the theatre. The sharpness, clarity, and warmth of the digital image projected onto the screen and reflected to the viewers’ eyes are dictated by the quality of the screen. PristiVue technology combines accurate color, a smooth and flawless texture, and adheres to Severtson Screens’ strict manufacturing guidelines.

The SēVision 3D GX is also referred to as a “Green Screen”, since its water-based optical coating is lacquer-free. As a result, the screen will not yellow or sag over time as do other lacquer-based coated screens. The SēVision 3D GX’s coating is the only water-based silver optical coating in the industry and helps protect and prolong the life of the screen material, as well as the gain.

“The SēVision 3D GX’s signal-to-noise ratio is an industry shattering 250:1, and the gain is 2.4,” added Severtson. “These features make ‘ghosting’ near obsolete, and thus allow it to work beautifully in ambient lighting. The SēVision 3D GX is the first home theater screen to be certified by all the major 3D licensors for digital projection, and can also be used for viewing 2D projection. It utilizes the same technology that helped earn an Oscar for IMAX in 1996, assuring that through viewing movies on this screen, everyone can experience the pristine visual presentations 3D digital projection has to offer.”

The SēVision 3D GX can be used for residential, commercial, and pro-AV applications, such as home theaters, movie theaters, schools, offices, museums, resorts, etc. It is also perfect for both fixed and electric/motorized applications, and can be rolled into a spindle in motorized applications. Since Severtson also caters to the movie theater industry, there are virtually no limitations or restrictions on the screen’s size and placement.

Custom and standard sizes are available. Severtson asks that customers contact them directly for individual pricing for their specific needs. “Our customers are ‘happily surprised’ at the cost for such a high-end quality 3D screen that’s manufactured right here at our company headquarters in Arizona,” Severtson concluded.

Severtson’s extensive experience in manufacturing small home theater screens and large cinema screens has given Severtson Corporation the expertise to meet the needs of the professional and consumer AV markets for both indoor applications as well as large outdoor venues.
