Sony shows Blu-ray mega changer
In the age of digital media, the disc changer seems anachronistic, but with Blu-ray Disc it still makes sense. A 500GB media server can hold about eleven high-def movies. Last year Sony released a digital media server with a built-in 200-disc Blu-ray changer, and this year they’ve showed a new 400-disc mega changer at CEDIA Expo.
Besides the fact that it holds 400 Blu-ray discs, DVDs, CDs and (presumably) SACDs, there’s not much to know. It supports BD-Live features and has RS-232 control, but this is all expected.
Releasing in 2009, it should be the least expensive way to store and access your movie collection. The recently released Escient Vision media server will control up to four of these players through the on-screen display.
