MediaCenter: home entertainment as its purest



MediaCenter

  • Use the media center as a central control for all your media or to surf safely through the internet.
  • The media which you would like to present and enjoy can be easily selected by the Apple remote control, NV Remote App for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, trackpad, Magic mouse or keyboard.
  • Due to the very easy configuration and the clean look & feel, the media center is the suitable replacement for "Front Row".
  • The media center gives access to a wide range of media:
    • pictures and movies from DLNA (UPnP) media server
    • pictures and movies from Aperture, iPhoto, Photos App
    • music videos, movies, TV shows or podcasts from iTunes (incl. bought or rented content)
    • music tracks from iTunes playlists thru the iTunes control (incl. change of playlist or current track)
    • RSS feeds (video podcasts) and their media from Miro (independent from the download state)
    • pictures (and other media) from the pictures folder
    • movies (and other media) from the movies folder

  • Through "Movie Info" a cover/preview and description can be set for DVDs, movies and media shows.
  • Optionally the computer can be shut down or EyeTV activated by selecting "Exit".
  • If EyeTV, iTunes or VLC is the frontmost application, then this application can be remotely controlled by Apple remote control or "NV Remote".

  • Home entertainment as its purest - comfortable and relaxing, from the couch, armchair, bed or directly at the Apple computer!

Data protection & privacy

  • With the media center you surf not only safely through the internet, because the corresponding web pages will only be downloaded instead of executed, thus e.g. no page statistic analyzes like "Google Analytics" are called. And movies and videos are played directly instead via "Flash" whenever possible, which prevents further analyzes.
  • The metadata display for local media follows this concept: covers are only searched & displayed for DVDs (and can be deactivated). For movie files, however, only metadata like image preview, movie length and size are displayed - covers & descriptions must be set by "Movie Info". The reason for this is simple: movie files unlike DVDs may be private videos and their file names are nobody's business, but would be communicated to other companies in an automatic metadata search.
