If you’re looking for a serious media server for all your high definition content, this server from DViCo looks pretty impressive. The TViX HD M-5100SH is a real heavy hitter, with the ability to serve video content at up to 1080p resolution.
The server features HDMI output for pure digital quality, and streams content off of a high-speed SATA drive to ensure stutter-free media playback. For those of you without a digital video connection, it also offers component, S-video and composite outputs, and stand-alone digital and analog audio connections as well.
It can play video files in a ton of formats, including WMV, WMV HD, AVI, MPG, VOB, MP4 and ASF among others. It’s no slouch in the audio department either, with support from MP3, WMA, AAC, FLAC, OGG, PCM and M4A file formats too. The server can easily connect to your computer network making it easy to move content from your PC to the server’s internal hard drive.
The M-5100SH retails for a little more than $500 when configured with a 250GB SATA hard drive. TViX also offers options for a digital ATSC tuner with DVR capability, as well as wireless network connectivity.
