nessMediaCenter is the suitable alternative for FrontRow to access local media and internet content. By using existing system features such as QuickTime, the program is very small (6 MB) and requires low processing power. With the QuickTime extensions "Flip4Mac" and "Perian" all popular movie formats are playable. Local media can be accessed by folders and hard drives as well as media data from Aperture, iPhoto, iTunes (including DRM), and Miro. Thus, the structure offered by the system - such as the picture and movie folders - is used directly instead of reorganizing the media in a new library.

The internet offer supports various providers such as BBC iPlayer, DailyMotion, German television, movie trailers, YouTube. In categories like movies, music videos and entertainment, more than 2500 internet videos of different providers are available. Using nessMediaCenter, pictures, movies and PDF documents can be presented both individually and sequentially. DVDs and EyeTV movies are supported as well. MediaCenter and media presentations can be controlled by Apple remote control, "NV Remote" app for iPhone / iPod touch, Magic mouse, trackpad or keyboard.
