The World of Home Entertainment Has Never Seen Anything Like This
Imagine sitting in your media room or dedicated home theater and having instant access to all movies, videos, music and Internet content available in the world, all with the tap on a sleek 6” touchscreen interface.
Crestron, the global leader in home control and HD digital home entertainment, introduces the new ADMS (Adagio Digital Media System) – delivering the world of entertainment and information to you.
Today, there are many different music and video content sources available such as Apple TV®, Roku®, VUDU™, DVD, Blu-ray, iTunes and streaming media from the Internet. The problem is they’re all fragmented representing different media formats, user interfaces, players, boxes, remotes and hard drives. Each source offers a limited library of titles based on format or licensing agreements. To get complete access to everything that’s “out there”, you’ll not only need four or five different boxes, but if one provider doesn’t have what you want, you’ll have to search the next provider’s library hoping to find what you’re looking for. If not, you’ll have to repeat the entire process again and again until you find what you want.
The ADMS shatters the old paradigm of saving discs onto hard drives, and removes all boundaries between media sources. ADMS is more than just another media server – it’s an intermedia delivery system. ADMS doesn’t simply play the content you have, it delivers whatever you want. Now it’s your choice of content from wherever you want, whenever you want, delivered right to your TV.
ADMS combines the most popular On Demand content providers with your personal DVD/Blu-ray collection, streaming Internet media, iTunes® library, and even your valuable home movies on one intelligent platform. With a few button presses from a Crestron touchpanel, any movie, song, Internet TV show or streaming video is yours on request, instantly delivered to your home theater system in true high definition, heart pumping 7.1 digital surround sound.
Browse through cover art collections for movies and music by artist, title, actor, genre, director or playlist, and immediately play a selection. Alternatively, exclusive Crestron WorldSearch™ technology performs lightning fast keyword searches and scans the entire multimedia universe for every occurrence of any subject, and organizes and displays the results instantaneously based on relevance, quality and price. Just type in the name of your favorite actor using the optional wireless keyboard, and the cover art of all related movies displays on your screen. With a few button touches, the family is enjoying the show.
Apple iTunes® is natively hosted on the ADMS allowing you to search and play any song, podcast, video or audio book directly from your iTunes library on your home theater or multi-zone audio system. Preview songs before you add them to your queue, search by genre, song, album and artist, and scroll through the album art while controlling the decibel level, all from the touchpanel. You never have to leave your seat or the ADMS onscreen menu. Even download new titles and build new playlists from the living room without opening iTunes from the home computer.
With Amazon® Video OnDemand onboard, ADMS brings the largest selection of movies for rent or purchase right to your HD display. Complete online catalogs are updated daily, providing immediate access to new releases. Your personal library of Blu-ray Discs and DVDs are conveniently played from the built-in Blu-ray drive or in the 200-disc Blu-ray changer, which is expandable to 1000 discs, storing even the largest personal movie library. More importantly, the changer enables intuitive and dynamic browsing of the Blu-ray collection.
Even cherished home movies are included in your ADMS library, searchable with WorldSearch, and instantly accessed on the home theater system. Watching your HD home movies that are downloaded onto the computer can now be shared and experienced in full 1080p and digital surround sound.
The ADMS also provides an incomparable Internet TV experience, enabling instant access to the best online video content, from popular sites such as Hulu, Joost, Vimeo, Metacafe, YouTube and others. ADMS delivers an enhanced web entertainment experience to the comfort of your home theater on a large platform HD display. No Internet browsing or website navigation; no downloading or buffering; no resizing video windows or scaling. ADMS natively streams online TV shows, movies and videos in full screen HD.
To complete the multimedia experience, the ADMS brings the Internet into the home theater environment. Featuring an exclusive, built-in web browser, ADMS delivers the Internet to your HD TV display at speeds that leave cable and FiOS in the dust. Surf the web, check email or watch a live streaming video of breaking news or your favorite sports team in true HD.
Whether content is located on your iTunes library, the optional 200-disc Blu-ray changer, Amazon Video OnDemand®, the built-in 1TB hard drive, your computer’s hard drive, or the best Internet media sites, WorldSearch will find it instantly and deliver it to your home theater.
The ADMS delivers maximum quality, performance and convenience. ADMS sets a new standard in home entertainment, reinventing the way we think about and experience media. Traditional distinctions between TV, movies, Internet and movies no longer apply. Antiquated methods of acquiring and playing content are history. ADMS is the next generation intermedia delivery for the digital age.
