New VidaBox Touch3.6 Touch Pad Provides Truly Customizable Controls

New VidaBox Touch3.6™ touch pad provides truly customizable controls in a full color double-gang sized touch screen

Las Vegas, NV - CES 2009 - January 8-11 - Hilton Suite H22-121 - VidaBox, a manufacturer of digital entertainment and control solutions, is proud to debut the Touch3.6™, a full-color touchpad capable of presenting an interactive, fully-customizable interface.  This 320x234 resolution screen will allow control of any device via RS-232, TCP/IP, IR, and other control protocols through the vAutomation™ platform.

"We're absolutely thrilled to offer our dealers the new Touch3.6 panel," exclaims Steven Cheung, President of VidaBox LLC. "Integrators can finally install a double-gang sized panel to control anything in the house - lighting, security, climate, shades, whole house AV, and more.  This is all possible because of vAutomation's support for customizable interfaces."

Unlike traditional setups where there is one keypad for lights, one for music, and another for climate control, integrators can install a single control to replace them all.  Only a single CAT cable & power-over-Ethernet is needed for connectivity, making it extremely easy to install.  A vController™, as the brains of the vAutomation platform, processes user selections on each Touch3.6™ and changes its interface to present new options and information.  For example, when lighting is selected, on/off switches, dimmer controls, and current status for that zone immediately pop up.  On the same interface, clicking on 'music' will present album art of the song currently playing, along with playback controls.

"Many customers enjoy the simplicity of having smaller, neater controls that the Touch3.6™ offers," continues Cheung.  "Combined with the interface customization and control capabilities of vAutomation, ease of installation into new or retrofit projects, and relative low cost, the Touch3.6™ becomes the smart choice for in-room controls in any whole house AV and integration project.

The Touch3.6™ will be available in February to dealers who have attended and completed vAutomation training.  For more details and specifications on the Touch3.6™ and other VidaBox digital entertainment and control solutions, please visit the company website at, or see them at International CES in the North Tower Suite H22-121!
