Alienware has introduced the new Alienware HD Media Server at the CEDIA EXPO in the States.

"The HD Media Server ... fulfills the demand for an easy-to-use, high definition content storage and distribution device in next-generation digital homes", said Marc Diana, product marketing manager for Alienware.

Described as the "ultimate media server for the digital home of tomorrow", Alienware's new HD Media Server comes loaded with up to four terabytes of hot-swappable hard drive storage.

The system will let users record and playback high definition content at up to 1080p via an HDMI output, supports internal cable card (OCUR), and features a Dolby Digital 7.1 preamp output.

The Hangar18 HD Entertainment Center, Alienware's recent media centre PC offering, gets the addition of a Blu-ray Disc drive, so can now deliver both 1080p high definition picture quality and 10x the storage capabilities of DVDs.

No mention of a UK launch...
