New Sooloos Offerings at CEDIA
Sooloos, a manufacturer of premium networked home entertainment systems, announced the fall shipment of a host of new hardware offerings that will apply its user interface to the viewing of both HD and SD video and photos.
Additionally, the company unveiled major software updates that will enable Sooloos-based management and experience of online content, which is customarily locked in the user’s computer environment, from within the living room/home entertainment environment.
“Today, Sooloos grows from the world’s finest music management and enjoyment platform to the world’s finest networked home entertainment platform,” said Rob Darling, vice president of strategy. “Sooloos now leads the CE industry in providing appliance-level reliability in the management and enjoyment of all digital media types—and it doesn’t matter if they’re local or online. Sooloos now makes the enjoyment of music, video and photos in the home more social and fun than ever before.”
Sooloos’ new Rhapsody, YouTube and Flickr account integrations, provide the world of online music, video and photos integration into the home entertainment and automation environment, and is said to be remarkably easy to access and enjoy through Sooloos’ robust interface and hardware. Said Sooloos COO Peter Wellikoff, “Digital media users can leave the computer behind and access all of their digital content—music, video, photos, both locally stored and online—through the dedicated Sooloos interface in the living environments where they prefer to relax, entertain and enjoy digital media.”
Sooloos now offers a single server line that will allow dealers to satisfy the needs of their customers, from basic music distribution to full media management, from audiophiles to videophiles. The flexibility and scalability Sooloos allows for upgrades and growth in the ever-changing and unpredictable world of digital media.
With the growth of the Sooloos line, custom dealers can now offer one brand—Sooloos—to address any of their clients’ digital home entertainment needs,” said Darling. “With the Sooloos architecture and component offering, you won’t have to jump brands as you move up and down the sales tiers and between customer types. And with the Sooloos architecture and upgradeability, you can address customer concerns about keeping up with technology changes. The Sooloos platform and product line will grow with you and with your customers.”
