Fusion Research introduces new Genesis 4K/UHD movie server
Fusion Research is now shipping the new Genesis 4K/UHD movie server, which will replace the current Genesis Movie Server line.
Featuring 12TB of RAID storage, it can archive UHD discs as well as a client’s DVD and Blu-ray collection.
In addition to the Genesis 4K Server, Fusion is also introducing a 4K/UHD player with a built-in loader that can be added into existing Fusion systems. The player will be an additional discrete source to the system and, although it doesn’t have any storage, it will send that bit-for-bit copy of the UHD (or DVD and Blu-ray) to the associated server and/or NAS storage unit. The player will retail for $3,999 MSRP.
“This has been, by far the most requested feature upgrade for our movie server line,” said Alexander Fanti, CTO of Fusion Research. “It required a lot of engineering, but we are very happy to offer our dealers and their clients a server that archives their entire disc collection.”
The units can be controlled through a supplied IR remote or via automation control systems such as Control4, Crestron, ELAN, RTI, Savant, URC and Vantage.
Fusion is also streamlining its movie server line up. With the recent tariff increases, they are choosing to discontinue their Premiere 2TB model, while continuing with their Premiere 4TB server at its current price.
The new Genesis 4K/UHD movie server is available now for $6,999 MSRP, $1,000 less than the previos Genesis 12TB model.
