Simply connect DVDFab Movie Server, via a cable or wirelessly, to the same network your computer running DVDFab 10 is linked with. You will then be able to select the Movie Server as the output destination. In this way, the resulting ISO files made from the Full Disc, Main Movie and Clone modes under the Copy module shall be sent directly to the 3.5 inch SATA hard drive attached inside the Movie Server. Your video will be immediately ready for you to watch on your large screen TV that is connected to the DVDFab Movie Server via an HDMI or RCA cable. Your collection will be available to you at any convenient time. Note that future DVDFab 10 versions will allow saving output files to DVDFab Movie Server with more modules and modes.
When you only have a few movies on your Movie Server, picking one to watch is not a problem. However, as your backup ISO files keep flooding in day by day, finding one specific movie from a large digital library can make you feel like you're searching for a needle in the ocean. But worry not, DVDFab Movie Server will organize and manage your ISO files in an intelligent way, by sorting and putting them into different sections such as Movies and TV Shows. It will automatically scrap the relevant metadata information of all the Movies and TV Shows from the internet, and present you with a well-organized screen filled with video poster art, which we call the Poster Wall.
On a sunny Sunday afternoon, watching a movie with family members couldn’t be more pleasant. Just let the kids choose their favorite cartoon, or let your wife make the choice if the kids are too busy with their toys, or if they are just not in the mood. All the metadata information such as the title, plot, duration, director, release date, genre, and country, are all displayed on the Poster Wall. With the smart searching feature, finding what you want will be quick and easy. Once the perfect title has been selected, you can leisurely enjoy the rest of the day in pure entertainment.
To ensure a maximum performance, DVDFab Movie Server ushers in the outstanding quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor clocked at 2.0GHz, which is capable of seamlessly supporting 32-bit and 64-bit instruction sets. Other must-haves include the cost-optimized Mali-T720 GPU, a 2GB 1866MHz DDR3 memory and an 16GB eMMC on-board storage.
Usually, people cannot see clearly what’s beneath the surface of a manufactured device and this sometimes concerns them a lot. With DVDFab Movie Server, they don’t have to, as we have a ridiculously strict process when choosing raw materials that are of military grade, plus the high-end black gold plating technique, quality is at its best version.
To make sure the internet speed is fast enough, DVDFab Movie Server offers 10/100/1000 Megabit adaptive Ethernet port, and 802.11 B/G/N 2.4G/5G wireless network adapter with double antenna. This means when sending the output ISO files from DVDFab 10 directly to the SATA hard drive inside the movie server, the transmission process won’t keep you waiting for long.
Want to do some personal additions to the movie server to better fit your personal demands? Well you really can. DVDFab Movie Server comes along with one USB 2.0 port, one USB 3.0 port, one HDMI port and Bluetooth 4.0 adapter, meaning versatile peripherals can be attached from outside, such as a wireless keyboard, an external hard drive, etc.
Apart from accessing the SAMBA and NFS networked resources, the built-in NSS Patented metallic extraction cabinet allows you to attach any standard 3.5 inch SATA hard drive (not included in the package as an accessory), with up to 8TB of storage, and you can prepare as many such disk drives as you can. Don’t worry, the extraction cabinet can survive 100,000 times plugs and unplugs.
The nicely inlayed LED display on the front panel shows you accurate information regarding playback status, time remaining, and device connection status, etc, and it can be turned off, if you feel it bothering. As to the overheating concern, there is the smart cooling fan, with adjustable spinning speed and noise cancelation skill, and it can also be turned off.
DVDFab Movie Server plays back the native DVD & Blu-ray navigation menus, the most pleasant viewing experience that movie lovers don’t want to compromise on. Now they really don’t have to, at the same when they want to go digital. Everything feels absolutely the same with what you can see and what you can hear on a regular home Blu-ray player.
This cutting-edge movie server revolutionizes the way managing your digital media library. It is capable of automatically sort your media contents by putting them into correct categories, and presenting you a well-organized Poster Wall, which is filled with movie metadata information, such as the title, genre, director, plot, duration, and release date, etc.
Suppose you have a large personal collection of DVDs and Blu-rays at home, when you want to watch one specific title, how long do you think it will take you to locate that disc from the shelf? 10 minutes? Or maybe even more? Well, with the smart filtering feature with DVDFab Movie Server, just type the movie name and press to search. 2 minutes at most!
To ensure that viewers can get the best visual quality, DVDFab Movie Server brings the support for 3D, H.265, 4K UHD videos and all the other known video formats out there. Whenever you want to see a 3D movie, there is no need to go to the theatre, because you already have one at home. Every frame of image is as genuine as it is on the original disc.
If you have a premium acoustic system at home, apparently DVDFab Movie Server is meant for you, because it is capable of outputting lossless Dolby Atmos, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master and DTS:X audios, etc. If what you can hear at home is far much better than the best movie theatre in town, then what’s the point of throwing yourself into that over-crowded place?
The software OS running inside the movie server is based on Android 5.1, which means, apart from watching DVDs & Blu-rays, users also have infinite choices on millions of applications. They can play video games, purchase online, listen to their beloved music, read the breaking news, and download necessary toolkits and utilities, etc, as long as there is an app for each.
The way how people interact with the playback could be, to some extent, a determining factor of a pleasant playback control experience. In that regard, besides the hardware remote that is delivered in the package, there is also going to be a remote app (coming soon) designed for both iOS and Android smart phones to control the playback process on DVDFab Movie Server.
