Technological Masterpiece: What we are currently considering

MediaCrescendo will get some major upgrades this summer.  The first upgrade retires our 450+ DVD collection and Escient server.  I know.  It’s hard to think of DVDs as being “antiques”, but when it comes to streaming video and Media Servers, DVDs are old school.  Instead, we plan to kick-off the summer with more than 600 Movie/TV titles (many of which are BluRay).  These will all be stored on hard drives, which stream into the Theatre and play on our 110″ screen.  The system we’re looking at, called Drobo.
