The archiving and converting process is completely automated and once it is completed, the OutClass Server ejects the disc, ready for the next one.
The OutClass Server Video Converter converts DVD and Blu-ray titles based on selectable MP4 profiles. The profiles define formats that include files with various quality settings, and formats specific for mobile devices, and Apple TV. CDs can be dual ripped so that an mp3 copy is made at the same time as a high quality version. The mp3 is perfect for syncing with portable players such as iPods, smart phones and other portable devices. DVD and Blu-ray playback is supported on any network streaming device that has the appropriate codec support.
The software includes an open XML based data API, allowing for integration with third party control systems, or can for advanced users be used as back-end for own created entertainment solutions or control systems. Control4 integration based on the API is available from a partnership with Extra Vegetables, and integration to systems such as RTI and Crestron is available
