Quality Crafted Design
Father of Inteset products, the Maximus MTCD10-Sv is designed for premium A/V installations. This ISF-RL certified system surpasses all other Media Center servers in quality, functionality, noise level, and power.
The precision machined, aircraft aluminum alloy heat sink chassis and internal heat-pipe cooling technology, allows for silent operation using today's most powerful Intel-based Core 2 Quad CPU.
The system can be purchased for rackmount or shelf-based installations.
Ultimate Storage and Protection
The Maximus boasts up to 8 Terabytes of RAID 5 protected, serial attached (SAS) or network attached storage (NAS) using the included Inteset TeraRAID™ storage system (attach TeraRAID™ NAS units for unlimited capacity). Store all of your DVDs and CDs and HD broadcasts at full quality. This completely silent storage system provides enterprise-level performance processing power and throughput to allow multiple high-bandwidth streams to your multi-room setup. The TeraRAID™ system is managed via a simple Web-based interface and has an advanced email alert system that warns of suspect hard drives and other storage hardware components.
The Maximus also employs a redundant, RAID 1 operating system hard drive architecture that guarantees top-notch performance, reliability, and uptime.
Integrated Advanced Control
As an optional add-on, Inteset has built a full two-way communication protocol for communications between Windows Media Center and advanced control systems. You can control the Inteset Multi-zone Music Player, Movie Collection module, and Windows Media Center with a Crestron, Vantage, AMX, Exceptional Innovation or other control panel.
