Home Media Server and Video Sources
TV Specialists (now TVS Pro) can provide you with typical home theater components such as a DVD player or a Blu-ray player, but if you’re looking for something more we can also provide you with a unique home media server that can provide you stored content, streaming content from the internet (from content providers such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Kaleidescape), and loads of other features that will not only save you time but give you a more seamless experience than ever before.
We invite you to come in for a free demo (no appointment required) to show you just how exciting the new home media servers are!
DVD and Blu-ray Players
If you’re looking for a convention DVD player or Blu-ray player without the whistles and bells of what a video server can offer, we offer carefully chosen media players that still offer the highest standard of quality, value, amazing performance and also offer state-of-the-art capabilities.
The DVD and Blu-ray players we offer support a wide range of the latest technologies and standards including 3D support, DTS-HD support, Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Digital Plus decoding, THX certifications, and more! We not only offer single player machines, but multi-disc players are also available.
