The ShowStar Blu-ray Entertainment Server is the latest release from Mozaex, a company well known for their whole home entertainment systems. Unlike the company's main line of servers, the ShowStar is designed to be as simple as possible. It's made for folks who want a plug and play solution without a lengthy or complicated setup. It's also completely legal according to Mozaex, since it doesn't ship with unlicensed decryption software.
We've known for a while now that the folks at Redbox are planning a digital service to go with their DVD rental kiosks, but just what kind of plan they'll use has been a mystery. Redbox president Mitch Lowe confirmed in an investment call that we'll be seeing the first real Netflix competitor.
If there's one place you desperately need some entertainment, it's the airport. Anything that can take your mind off of the guy next to you and his total dominance of the armrest, the kids yapping behind you or the seemingly endless flight is a good thing.
"Like the original Blu-ray format, which is now considered to be a minimum requirement in home theater media servers, Blu-ray 3D has already begun to prove its immersive entertainment value," says Douglas Kihm, CEO of Mozaex.
