Venu is the world's first portable home entertainment system that uses high capacity secure hard drives to deliver entire libraries of content to your home. The Venu media player gives you hundreds of movies, thousands of songs, entire television series, all in the highest definition, instantly, to your smart phone, tablet, TV, computer or other device. Venu is completely portable and provides an “untethered” content solution; it streams entertainment locally from the secure, removable cartridge. “Venu is the future of entertainment. It delivers quality, choice, convenience and portability. This is a game changer in how entertainment is delivered,” said Keith Pagan, Chief Marketing Officer and former Disney Executive. Venu is a subscription-based service that, in exchange for a small monthly fee, offers consumers virtually limitless content. Users can choose to stock their libraries by ordering online and having their choices streamed to them or by mailing in their drive, after which they will receive a new drive loaded with their selections. Once they have their library of content they can use ThoughtFlow™ technology to search their library and choose a selection. With ThoughtFlow™, compounding weighted parameters shift with each click allowing the consumer to find new content based on previous selections.
Venu is also secure. Venu is tamper respondent and tamper evident, which means any attempt to bypass its security results in immediate cryptographic disk erasure within milliseconds. Matt Fairchild, Chief Technology Officer said: “If my mom can steal content, the industry has a problem. CRAM’s security components are Department of Defense NSA Type-1 qualified. My mom has a problem now. “
CRAM is currently signing up the first 10,000 users to preview Venu. CRAM anticipates that Venu will be available for consumers in the second half of 2012. To see and experience Venu while at CES, stop by booth #73308 located in the Eureka Park Techzone at the Venetian.
