LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Jan 10, 2012) - CES Exhibitor Booth: South 1 - 21445 -- Dune HD, GmbH today unveiled at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show, the Dune HD Pro, the ultimate HD entertainment center and the latest in the company's line of highly rated and award-winning universal digital media players. The Dune HD Pro was named an International CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for superior video and audio performance resulting in the ability to enjoy music or movies at home with quality that matches an original live performance or cinema screening. Dune HD also introduces a new relationship with VUDU to deliver its streaming service across the Dune HD product line, and new technologies from THX® and Sigma Designs.

Previewed at CES this week and available in Q2 2012, the Dune HD Pro is offered in a modular approach, with the highest quality internal components for superior A/V performance. The system includes three modular components: 1) Universal Media Player, 2) Blu-ray loader and HDD hot swappable expansion drive bay chassis, and 3) Media Server Gateway with full color 7 inch touch-screen display and four HDD hot swappable expansion drive bays. The Dune HD Pro media system comes equipped with HDMI 1.4, VXP advanced video processor, Blu-ray and RealD 3D support, Ethernet and WiFi networking capability, support for IPTV, VOD and OTT streaming services, THX Media Director™, high-quality playback of every possible file format including high bit rate 1080p video including 192kHz 24bit audio, and the most advanced Sigma Designs 8910 media processor.

"The Dune HD Pro raises the standard in home media player technology, as modules allow for a customized system to suit the most enthusiastic audio and videophile," says Dune HD CEO Konstantin Dyshlevoy. "The player features technical elements never found in a digital media player until now, such as VXP video processing, Blu-ray 3D and the absolute highest quality internal components. We designed the Dune HD Pro for the discerning customer who expects the very best."

Dune HD Line Features the Most Advanced Technology
Recognized globally as one of the best in universal digital media players, the Dune HD line provides audio and videophiles with superior system quality and performance. Dune HD works with partners across the globe to deliver the best technology available -- with broad IPTV, VOD and OTT support to the latest chips from Sigma Designs and integrated support of THX Media Director.

As a testament to the advanced capabilities of the Dune HD product line, THX selected the Dune HD Max and Dune HD Smart B1 as the world's first Blu-ray enabled media players to support the new THX Media Director technology. THX Media Director transforms movies, music and other digital media into smart content. The result is a simplified and enhanced home entertainment experience whereby Dune HD players automatically select the appropriate playback settings and modes specific to each piece of content to preserve the content creator's artistic intent.

As content distribution for movies shifts from optical formats to streaming over the Internet, Dune HD is poised to capitalize on this trend by bringing the VUDU streaming service to its full line of media players in 2012. Details on the relationship and product roll-out are forthcoming.

The entire Dune HD product line, including Dune HD Pro, is on display at the CES show in the South Hall, Lower Level, Booth #21445. For any questions or to arrange a meeting with Dune HD executives, please contact Samantha Steinwinder, samantha@conceptpr.net, 206-713-6983.
