VidaBox to Display Wide Array of Products at ISE 2011

Microsoft Media Center wasn't the revolutionary, take over the industry solution oh so many thought it would be but that hasn't stopped a few companies like VidaBox from using it as the backbone of their products. Vidabox is arguably the new king of all things Media Center PC and their new lineup looks pretty impressive.

At ISE 2011 - Integrated Systems Europe, Europe's largest show for integrators - VidaBox will be showcasing products across its entire line of integrator-friendly solutions.

Among these products is the Liiv Controller with vAutomation 2.0, which turns any iPad into a touchscreen interface. vAutomation 2.0 makes its debut at ISE 2011 powered by LiivController, which is available as an entry-level tabletop control box or comes in a 2U rack-mount system configuration. Any iPad can access the LiivController via Wifi, turning the system into a touchscreen interface for control over any and all components. The vAutomation 2.0 interface can be used to control any VidaBox media center, giving users access to Blu-rays, DVDs, Netflix, and more. The system also allows users to browse media in the cover flow sytle that should be familiar for Apple users. The rack-mount version also allows the iPad to control up to eight zones of synchronized multiroom audio.
