Fremont, CA – August 14, 2007 – Antec, Inc., the leading global provider of high-performance computer components for the PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself markets, has launched its VERIS series of media components.

The VERIS series features the Fusion Black 430, an updated version of Antec’s original Fusion home theater PC (HTPC). It boasts an IR receiver compatible with Microsoft WindowsR MCE and VISTA to enable the use of a remote control. In addition, the LCD display remains bright and accessible even in a darkened home theater.

The Fusion Black 430, like the Fusion, has been designed to enable users to incorporate a PC into their home multimedia systems. To isolate fan noise and vibration, the Fusion Black’s structure has a triple-chamber design separating the 430-Watt power supply, hard drives and motherboard. In addition, hard drive brackets are fitted with silicone grommets to absorb vibrations for Quiet Computing . Keeping internal components cool are two 120mm TriCool three-speed fans. On top of that, the Fusion Black 430 will feature a high-efficiency 80 PLUS compliant 430-Watt power supply, designed to lower your electrical bill with no reduction in quality performance. The sleek black design of the media center case ensures that the Fusion Black will blend seamlessly into home entertainment systems.

The VERIS series also includes the A/V Cooler, a cooling solution for home entertainment systems. The A/V Cooler utilizes two fans to stop heat from rising by rapidly blowing hot air away from media components, preventing systems from overheating or damaging neighboring components of the entertainment system. As well as ensuring safe and efficient operation, the A/V Cooler maximizes the lifespan of expensive home theater equipment.
