Individual Mediacenter.

the new Individual Mediacenter as outstanding innovation.


Plays everything, can do everything. Individual Mediacenter – The heart of the Multiroom system. The Individual Mediacenter is truly multi-talented. It plays CDs and DVDs and receives radio signals via aerial, cable, satellite and from the internet. You can play digital sound files from hard disks or from your network as well as from an iPod or iPhone. All of this in minimalist packaging with a slim case of premium aluminium and glass, something to be proud of. Experience the most complete unit ever built by Loewe.

CDs and DVDs are pulled in elegantly by a motorised slot loading drive on the side. The Individual Mediacenter automatically displays title, genre, name of album and even a picture of the CD or DVD cover on the TV – this is possible due to automatic scanning of the Gracenote database on the internet. To improve picture quality, films played from DVDs are scaled to full HD picture resolution (1080p).

The Individual Mediacenter receives radio via FM, satellite, cable and the internet. Use of the DVB radio programmes, thousands of internet radio streams and radio programmes on the Loewe TV is especially comfortable and easy with the Individual Mediacenter.

Two fast USB 2.0 interfaces in the Individual Mediacenter make it possible to play MP3s or other sound files directly from USB sticks or USB hard disks.

In the future you can place your Apple iPod or iPhone in the docking station integrated out of sight on the top of the Individual Mediacenter. The battery of your portable music player can not only be charged there, but you can also access all its contents by remote control. This way you can comfortably listen to your favourite play list on the big loudspeakers in your lounge, and with Loewe Multiroom in all other rooms as well.

Thanks to Loewe Connectivity + technology your network sound files can be accessed from the Individual Mediacenter via LAN, WLAN or Powerline. Using the same technology it connects with the internet in order to access radio streams or information and pictures of CDs being played.

The display and controls of the Individual Mediacenter itself have been reduced to their essence without compromise. A digital display shows the title or radio station currently playing. Basic functions such as on/off, play/ pause or forward/rewind are controlled directly via the unit. The connected TV set, on the other hand, displays an on-screen menu with which you can comfortably access all media. Please refer to the next page for more information on the controls.

The Individual Mediacenter provides you with further interfaces for connecting a game console, home automation systems or a record player. A HDMI In, an Aux In and an RS 232 interface are available for this purpose.

Different arrangement options make it possible to find a perfect solution for your living arrangements. For the Individual Mediacenter there are solutions for the wall, an elegant table stand or a floor stand that can be placed anywhere in the room. Loewe includes extensive solutions for discretely hiding the connecting cables.

Clear and easy to use. Individual Mediacenter user interface and Loewe Assist Media. For the first time Loewe Multiroom makes easy management of many music sources in different rooms possible. The Individual Mediacenter utilises the connected TV set in order to make all functions easy to operate, clear, and fascinating in appearance. And you can control it comfortably from an adjacent room with the new Loewe Assist Media remote control. It shows song titles, rooms and even pictures of your CD covers on its own display. Visual operation that delights.

The new Loewe Assist Media was developed especially for comfortable use of the Multiroom system. The highlight: The integrated display shows

all information in an easily visible and intuitively operatable manner – including the covers of your music collection. Not only does the Assist Media send orders

via radio, it also receives all data this way. Over and above it is a real eye catcher: A masterpiece in aluminium and glass.

Connectivity+.


Multiroom very easily installed. Thanks to Connectivity+ it can be installed  without cables. Up to now Multiroom systems required careful planning, and their installation was involved. Not so with Loewe. You only need one network router, thanks to the innovative Connectivity+ technologies. You can use standard network cables (LAN), radio (WLAN) or the mains (Powerline) to connect the units. Multiroom networking has never been this easy.

Network router You require a standard network router for your networking. This is already available in many households to enable access to the internet. Loewe Multiroom solutions fit into the existing infrastructure instead of inventing a standard of its own.

Networking via network cables (LAN Ethernet) Proven technology from the world of computers forms the basis of the Loewe Multiroom solution. Individual Mediacenter and Individual Sound Multiroom Receiver contain integrated Ethernet connections that link them directly to your network router. Loewe Connect Media can be connected in the same fashion.

Networking via the mains (Powerline) Would you like to connect rooms on different floors? Powerline technology makes this possible without needing to lay cables. Simply use the mains for transmission. The Powerline adapters are all you need to send and receive signals from your Ethernet cables into and from the mains.

Networking via Radio (WLAN) You would like to connect your Multiroom system without using cables? No problem, as the Individual Mediacenter and the Individual Sound Multiroom Receiver each provide an integrated WLAN server (standard IEEE 802.11b/g with up to 54 Mbit/s, as well as preparation for the upcoming WLAN standard IEEE 802.11n with up to 540 Mbit/s). The Loewe Connect Media can be connected in the same fashion.

Discover new rooms. These components bring your music into each room. You do not need to install a multitude of receivers, amplifiers and connectors to connect adjacent rooms. With Loewe Multiroom you simply bring your sound into each room, e.g. with the Individual Sound Multiroom Receiver. It is receiver and stereo amplifier in one. However, you can also use a Loewe flat TV with Mediaplayer or an internet-ready unit by another manufacturer. Loewe Multiroom – a uniquely flexible and open system.

Individual Sound Multiroom Receiver The Individual Sound Multiroom Receiver establishes the connection to the Individual Mediacenter. It transmits audio enjoyment to each room via two digital audio amplifiers with 48 watts output each. A subwoofer can be connected as well. Basic functions such as forward/rewind, play/pause and its own USB interface are located on the side of the unit for direct control.

Connectivity+.

Loewe Connect Media Loewe flat TVs with Mediaplayer can be connected as a unit in an adjacent room, e.g. the Connect Media or an Individual Compose with an upgraded Mediaplayer. This way you can access your music sources via TV in other rooms, including displaying the covers of the albums played. The screen can be turned off at the push of a button: This reduces power consumption to under 50 Watts, the level of an ordinary hi-fi system.

Additional units Do you have an internet-ready kitchen radio? Then simply integrate it into your Multiroom solution. Loewe has intentionally maintained an open system so that units by other manufacturers can access the Individual Mediacenter for audio.
