nessMediaCenter is the suitable replacement for Apple's Front Row:
Media center and media presentations can be controlled by Apple remote control, NV Remote for iPhone / iPod touch or keyboard.
Home entertainment as its purest - comfortable and relaxing, from the couch, armchair, bed or directly at the Apple computer.
Watch the tutorial video on YouTube!
Enjoy thousends of motion pictures, music videos or serials from the internet! Or watch the newest movie trailers.
There are plenty of internet providers offering interesting video content - but you must know them and every provider has its own design and navigation.
With nessMediaCenter the internet content of the supported providers is offered in a menu structure which looks always the same.
And either single or multiple entries - even provider categories - can be selected ad hoc and will be presented continiously.
Just lean back and enjoy!
Aperture and iPhoto are great applications to organize pictures and videos in albums.
nessMediaCenter offers these albums and media on the left side in the familiar menu structure. Informations like date taken and available geo data (country, place) will be extracted and displayed on the right side below the preview.
One or multiple albums or single media from different albums can be selected e.g. by remote control and presented continously.
The presentation can be easily improved by selecting background music with the iTunes control. During the presentation the current iTunes music will continue to play and video sound will be surpressed.
iTunes is the place to organize and enjoy your music. And to buy or rent motion pictures and TV shows.
But what to do if you are sitting on your sofa and hearing a song you do not want to listen to anymore? Or you would like to hear another playlist?
With nessMediaCenter you can remote control you music: just take the remote control and switch to another song or playlist. With "NV Remote" you can even control the music from another room!
But that is not all: select your (bought or rented) movies, podcasts or TV shows comfortably and watch them in iTunes. During the presentation iTunes can be remote controlled to e.g. pause or rewind the current media.
We like media like pictures, DVDs and movies very much. And the way Mac OS X helps us to organize these media.
Not all media fits into iPhoto or iTunes. Picture and movie folder is the place for these media. And external volumes the place for hundreds of cinema movies recorded e.g. by EyeTV.
But how to start e.g. EyeTV movies which are not in the archive? Or even worse: the EyeTV application is not installed on this Mac at all?
nessMediaCenter can start your EyeTV movies, DVDs or QuickTime movies (e.g. AVI, DivX, MOV, MP4, MKV) from wherever they are stored. And if you install VLC then you can start EyeTV movies without the EyeTV application.
