At the CEDIA 2007 Sony announced the HES-V1000 Home Entertainment Server. This tower of digital power has a 500GB HDD and a 200 Blu-ray Disc/DVD/CD Changer.
The Sony HES-V1000 features a full HD 1080p 200-disc Blu-ray Disc/DVD/CD changer (196 12cm BD/DVD/CDs and four 8cm BD/DVDs) and 500GB hard disc drive that can store up to 137 hours of video, 40,000 songs or 20,000 digital photos.
Additionally, this Blu-ray disc changer is Sony’s first Blu-ray Disc-capable component other than a VAIO notebook or optical PC drive that can burn content to Blu-ray Discs, as well as DVDs. In addition to its vast playback and storage capabilities, the HES-V1000 unit offers Sony’s new x-Application feature that includes x-Pict Story HD and x-ScrapBook photo slide show so users can create customized photo presentations with the click of the remote.
x-Pict Story HD utilizes unique layouts with sophisticated face-recognition technology and syncs transitions with music selected from personal content libraries to create a unique photo slide presentation.
x-ScrapBook offers a compelling slide show that the device automatically arranges in a very fast timeframe to explore memories in a personalized digital scrapbook. Users can also export both types of slide shows to Blu-ray Discs or DVDs to share with family and friends.
The Sony HES-V1000 has a stylish design featuring a mirror black tower measuring about 12 1/4 x 31 5/8 x 15 7/8 inches.
The HES-V1000 Home Entertainment Server will be available in October for about $3,500. This is actually not such a bad price for this kind of livingroom status symbol.
