Groundbreaking Bundle Enables Consumers to Instantly Turn Any PC Into a Home Theater

FREMONT, CA–(EMWNews – August 7, 2008) – Antec, Inc., the leading global provider of

high-performance components for the gaming, PC Upgrade and Do-It-Yourself

markets, has launched the Multimedia Station, a high-performance computing

kit that enables users to upgrade their existing PCs into complete

multimedia centers.

The Antec Multimedia Station bundle includes an IR receiver, a remote and

iMEDIAN HD media management software.

Extremely easy to install, Antec’s Multimedia Station delivers a robust,

stylish and functional solution that can be tailored to meet the needs of

any and all home theater enthusiasts. The Multimedia Station is available

in four different models to accommodate all user needs, from the portable

and lightweight Multimedia Station E-Z to the deluxe and stylish Multimedia

Station Premier.

All four models come with the highly praised iMEDIAN HD software by iMON.

This software enables users to instantly control and manage all of their

media files, connect to networks and more — all in a stylish graphical

interface. iMEDIAN HD supports full 1080p resolution, can play nearly all

media formats and is compatible with Windows Media Center Edition, Windows

Vista and XP.

The four Multimedia Station models and their specific benefits are:

Multimedia Station E-Z

The perfect tool for users who want to build a basic media center,

especially with laptops and PC screens. It comes with a portable external

IR receiver that can be mounted on monitors or notebooks, and plugged into

front USB ports. The E-Z model features Antec’s Standard Remote.

Multimedia Station Basic

The package for entry-level builders includes the Standard Remote and an IR

Receiver designed to fit into a 3.5″ drive bay. The receiver can be powered

on or off by remote, or by a preset power schedule.

Multimedia Station Elite

Targeted at builders looking for exceptional style and convenience, the

Multimedia Station Elite contains a Deluxe Remote and an IR Receiver with

VFD display and volume control for 5.25″ drive bays. The receiver includes

an easily accessed volume control wheel and a VFD display.

Multimedia Station Premier

Designed for users looking for the ultimate comfort, style and

functionality from their home theater. In addition to a Deluxe Remote, the

Multimedia Station Premier features a deluxe IR receiver designed to fit

into two 5.25″ drive bays. This receiver boasts an LCD display and a front

media control panel with menu navigation, a volume control wheel and media

playback buttons.

“When it comes to upgrading to a home theater PC, one common complaint is

that the process is too complicated and expensive. The Multimedia Station

makes that process easy, convenient, and affordable,” says Scott Richards,

senior vice president at Antec. “These four high-quality bundles include

everything users need to convert their existing PC into a state-of-the-art

multimedia center.”
