nessViewer combines functionality of DVD / QuickTime Player and Preview, offers a MediaCenter with direct access to local media and many internet media providers, includes functionality to edit, arrange and present media and offers a media server to transfer or stream media between Mac and iOS.

nessViewer supports the following media: DVDs, pictures, movies / videos, media shows (playlists) and portable documents (PDFs). Movies and videos are playable in all common formats (like AVI, DivX, MKV, MPEG4) thru the QuickTime extensions Flip4Mac and Perian.

Beside these supported media, the media center also allows it to access EyeTV movies, iPhoto media like images and videos, iTunes media including bought or rented movies (DRM) and Miro video podcasts (RSS).

Furthermore media server and DLNA client browser allows it to access media via network (DLNA, FTP). Thru the DLNA client, many media servers like Plex, PS3, Serviio, Twonky or XBMC UPnP and NAS volumes can be accessed and their media presented.

Main features:

  • Edit media:
  • Through the working tools movies can be cut, joined, converted and exported for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or AppleTV. Pictures can be rotated or croped. Pages can be extracted from PDF documents and contents converted into various formats. A swap to specific media software is not necessary.
  • Arrange media:
  • The media shows of nessViewer allow it to arrange media like pictures or movies as playlists and to save it for (later) presentation. In addition to the access to media from iPhoto or local volumes, internet media can be integrated without having to download them (DailyMotion, MySpace, Vimeo, YouTube, etc.).
  • Present media:
  • nessViewer presents pictures, DVDs, movies and PDFs in various ways: via drag and drop, menu functions, the Apple remote control, media shows, the MediaCenter or media server. The automatic presentation of a newly inserted CD, DVD or other removable media is possible through the auto start system function.
  • MediaCenter:
  • The MediaCenter offers a lot of internet media: e.g. Arte, BBC, DailyMotion, FreeMoviesCine, Austrian / German / Netherlands / Swiss television, LastFM, live broadcasting, Miro video podcasts, YouTube. Through the functionality of "virtual playlist", plenty of different media can be easily selected and continuously presented afterwards.
  • Media server:
  • The media server allows it to transfer media (e.g. pictures, movies) between Mac and iPad / iPhone / iPod touch. The free of charge nessViewer App can access the media server either via FTP client or via the MediaCenter. A highlight of the media server is the possibility to stream media directly e.g. to an iPad: instead of transfering all the data before starting the presentation, the media can be streamed in small segments. Thru AirPlay it is also possible to present media, which is e.g. stored on iPhone, on Mac.
  • Comfortable handling by remote control:
  • pictures, movies, DVDs, PDFs, media shows or online content can be presented straightforwardly by nessViewer. Thus your Mac turns into a perfect home cinema.
