Dune HD Max is the first "THX Media Director" enabled media player Back
Dune HD GmbH announced that the Dune HD Max Universal Digital Media Player is the first commercial Blu-ray player to integrate THX Media Director™ technology. THX’s unique technology transforms movies, music and other digital media into “smart content” that enables A/V components to auto-select the most appropriate audio and video playback settings, preserving the content creator’s artistic intent.
Dune HD Universal Digital Media Players are widely recognized for playing nearly all audio and video formats regardless of delivery format, resolution or type — a key reason THX selected the Dune HD Max to be the first commercial player to demonstrate THX Media Director technology. THX Media Director works with a variety of digital media (i.e., optical discs, downloads, broadcast and streaming) to simplify and ensure an optimal home theater experience for consumers.
THX is building the THX Media Director foundation with support from leading semiconductor chip companies, enabling CE device manufacturers to easily implement THX Media Director functionality into these devices. Dune HD GmbH worked closely with THX and major semiconductor chip companies to integrate THX Media Director and help pave the way for an ecosystem of THX Media Director enabled AV receivers, HDTV displays (2D/3D), projectors and video processors to emerge.
Dune HD Max Highlights:
• Supports Dolby TrueHD, DTS HD Master Audio as well as DVD and Blu-ray discs and images, in addition to network delivered or internal HDD based audio and video files
• Features ultra-fast networking speeds, IPTV, Internet radio functions, and a built-in Internet browser
• Includes a 3.5 inch SATA HDD rack with hot-swap support, internal SD card slot, and 3 high speed USB 2.0 ports for connecting external storage, expansion modules or devices
THX Media Director Benefits:
• Automatically selects optimal video and audio modes based on the content, so users don’t have to navigate complex menus using multiple remote controls to get the best home entertainment setup
• Allows users to enjoy the signature playback features and settings specific to their HDTV and home theater system
• Signals HDTV displays with the appropriate 3D characteristics when 3D content is detected, ensuring that the components automatically select the proper 3D mode
