AMX's media server line axed over DVD ripping dispute

Richard Lawler , @Rjcc
Looks like AMX isn't eager to be next in line for a battle after Kaleidescape and Real Networks, as it's chosen to kill the MAX line of multimedia servers, aimed at storing and streaming ripped discs, primarily in digital signage environments. CEPro notes several other similar servers that chose to fade out rather than fight the DVD Copy Control Association, while Kaleidescape is apparently still tied up in the courts, we're still wondering if legit disc ripping will arrive before Managed Copy.

 Often found twerding it up in a Detroit club basement, Richard's been tech obsessed since first laying hands on an Atari joystick. Now fully ensconced in the HD gaming era he scours the net for the latest news on HD screens and content, only taking an occasional break to submit Dreamcast 2 rumors on Joystiq's tip form.
