HP New Zealand to release Home Server for PCs and Macs
Posted on 23-Mar-2010 14:44. | Tags Filed under: News.



HP has announced plans to release its home server in the New Zealand market. Based on the Microsoft Windows Home Server platform, the HP MediaSmart Server is a central repository for automatically backing up and accessing digital music, videos, photos and documents from multiple computers on a home network.

The MediaSmart Server automatically organizes files across all PCs, streams media across a home network and the Internet, and publishes photos to popular social networking and photo sharing sites.

“A growing number of digital-savvy households have both Windows and Mac computers, with hundreds and sometimes thousands of media files and documents scattered across these devices,” said Carol Glidden, Market Development Manager Consumer Desktops HP, New Zealand. “The HP MediaSmart Server protects, stores and organizes this content from anywhere on a network so consumers can access and share it any place they are connected.”

“HP continues to innovate on the Windows Home Server platform giving consumers even more options to enjoy and protect their precious memories and valuable data,” said Charlie Kindel, general manager, Windows Server Solutions, Microsoft. “We believe consumers will embrace the new MediaSmart Server as one of the most exciting computing products for the home.”

HP MediaSmart Server features include the HP Media Collector that conveniently schedules the MediaSmart Server to copy and centralize digital files and libraries from networked PCs, Media Streaming that allows users to remotely stream photos and music to any Internet-connected PC or Mac, and Server for iTunes centralizing iTunes music libraries on the server for playback to any networked Mac or PC running iTunes.

It also brings the HP Photo Publisher to automatically upload photos to Facebook, Picasa Web Albums and Snapfish, plus backup tools for Mac and Windows PC. HP also includes an online backup facility using Amazon’s S3 online backup service.
