S1Digital Prepping Windows Home Server & Custom Touchscreen
S1Digital is launching a number of new products for 2008,
starting with their newly designed website
that looks great. On the hardware side,
S1Digital will be launching two Windows Home Server’s and a 17 inch Media
Center touchscreen. The new solutions
are outlined in
their new brochure (PDF) that lays out the S1 vision of the connected home
using Media Center as the center piece.
While exact details have not been released on the new
hardware, it appears they will have two flavors of S1 branded Windows Home
Server’s. The first is a 1U rackmounted
server, and the other is a smaller unit that looks to be based on Intel’s WHS
In addition they will have a brand new 17 inch touchscreen
with Media Center built in. Dubbed the
TX Edition it also has built-in wireless and optional internal CableCARD. Imagine

remote. My mControl setup is begging for
No prices or release dates yet, but it looks like S1 is
ready to make a splash in 2008.
