VidaBox Releases New vPad8, an Enhanced Ultra-Mobile Tablet Designed for Automation

VidaBox releases new vPad8™, an enhanced ultra-mobile tablet designed for automation & customizable controls

Las Vegas, NV - CES 2009 - January 8-11 - Hilton Suite H22-121 - VidaBox LLC, a manufacturer of digital entertainment and control solutions, is proud to present the vPad8™, a thin and light ultra-mobile tablet PC.  Running on Windows XP embedded, it features a full-color touch screen with 800x600 resolution and comes standard with WiFi connectivity, making it an ideal control interface device.

"We're excited to release the new vPad8™ panel," exclaims Steven Cheung, President of VidaBox. "This is a smaller, less bulky version of our original vPad10™.  We've also added some improvements like a brighter screen for easier legibility in direct light, and optional protective rubber bumpers, making it extremely durable."

vPad8™ still keeps many of its larger cousin's features, such as built-in 802.11b/g for wireless connectivity, a docking station that doubles as a charging cradle, and solid state storage w. fanless operation, providing long life and reliable performance.  Running on XP embedded, integrators can install a myriad of automation & control programs, such as CQC, which allows the vPad8™ to be used a control interface.

"When combined with CQC & vAutomation, the vPad8™ becomes a great choice for mobile controls," continues Cheung.  "The panel presents a customized interface, allowing any user to tap buttons to control lights, monitor security, change climate settings, choose AV sources, turn devices on or off in each room - from any location.  CQC processes the user's selections, and sends out the appropriate commands via RS-232, TCP/IP, IR, and other control protocols, making the vPad8™ an ultra powerful, all-in-one remote.  The end user control experience doesn't get easier with this level of seamless integration."

The vPad8™ is available now.  For more details and specifications on the vPad8™ and other VidaBox digital entertainment and control solutions, please visit the company website at, or see them at International CES in Hilton Suite H22-121!
