The Strength of Media Servers
To illustrate what media servers do, this example helps:
You install software on the media server that captures all existing video files. For example, this could be any data ending in .mp4, .mkv, .avi, or .mov. The server will collect and automatically sort this data (such as by alphabet, year of release, length, resolution, or other properties).
With another device, such as a notebook, you can now access the server using a specific software. The program will recognize what data the server contains and provide it with an attractive user interface. In the case of movies, you could end up playing each movie with a lot of information (such as summary, actor, director, script, sound and image quality) in an attractively designed interface.
Media servers are also very popular as music servers such as Roon servers, i.e. as a library for the user’s music collection. Not only does this give the user access to all the digital music tracks he owns.
It also automatically retrieves information such as artist biographies, lyrics and concert data. This cooperation between client and server would not be possible with a conventional file server. Only the combination of client and server software makes media server valuable both at home and in companies. They adapt the media server very exactly to your requirements and specifications.
The work is therefore individual and exactly tailored to your own preferences. As a user, you decide which files you save, but also which programs you integrate to use the server. The media server is available at any time of day or night. The individual components are deliberately selected so that even continuous operation does not affect the system.
Low Maintenance and Robust – Fanless Technology
Wherever moving parts are used, wear inevitably occurs. In the case of a mechanical hardware component, this can be overcome; after all, individual parts can usually be easily replaced.
However, sensitive files are stored on the media server, so wear and tear must be prevented at all costs. The solution is a fanless construction. This not only has the advantage of reduced wear and tear and a longer service life, but also means that the server is particularly economical and quiet.
If you use the device at home, there is no reason to fear that the media server will cause sleepless nights. On the contrary: If the device is inactive, it automatically goes into an idle state, which again helps to save energy.
Outstanding Quality in all Areas
Already the elegant and noble housing of the media server shows how much love and expertise went into its construction. It consists of a special aluminium, which is optimally suited for technical components. Every single case is precisely milled.
This means that no seams are visible and the server is a real eye catcher in the office or even in the living room. Prime Computer uses raw materials in its manufacturing process that can be completely recycled as far as possible. At the end of their long service life, the individual components are returned to the cycle. For the customer, this means that in the long run, prices are consistently fair and low.
Giving Used Technology a Second Life – the Second Life Cycle
The company not only thinks about sustainability when manufacturing its own media servers, but also gives used technology a chance with the Second Life Cycle. If you no longer have any use for monitors and computers, you can usually recycle them. There is always more waste than you might think.
The Second Life Cycle not only benefits companies in structurally weak regions, but also you. You will be issued a voucher with which you can purchase a media server or other technology at a discounted price. The advantages of the Second Life Cycle are listed again below:
- Still working devices will continue to be used
- Excessive waste is avoided
- Structurally weak areas receive support
- The purchase of new technology becomes cheaper
Full Control and Independence
The cloud is a solution that makes sense, especially in the private sector. Companies that handle sensitive data expose themselves to a certain amount of danger when using cloud systems. Complete control is taken away from you, and some of the servers used are located abroad.
This is even legally questionable when storing important personal data of customers. Our own server solution guarantees that all data is stored locally. You are always in control and know exactly where the data is located.
On a local server, protective mechanisms can be set up to prevent a data breach. The individual servers are equipped with accessories that allow installation within a server rack. This is particularly useful for companies that have their own server room.
If you want to use the device in a private setting, or if one server is sufficient, you can also place it free-standing thanks to the practical feet. The robust housing is constructed in such a way that no dust can penetrate the inside of the server. The design without fan also contributes to this. This protects internal contacts and you don’t have to worry about damaging your server outside of a rack.
