VidaBox Releases new TouchClient8 In-wall PC Touch Panel‏

Las Vegas, NV - CES 2009 - January 9-11 - Hilton Suite H22-121 - VidaBox LLC, a manufacturer of digital entertainment and control solutions, is excited to announce the availability of the TouchClient8™, a full-color, 8.4" in-wall touch panel with an XP embedded computer.

"From the first day of offering the TouchClient12™, we kept getting asked, 'Do you have a smaller version?'" says Steven Cheung, President of VidaBox LLC. "As always, we listen intently to our integrators, and created this new, smaller version called TouchClient8™.  It has the same great features & connectivity options of the original design without any sacrifices, just with a smaller, 800x600 native resolution touch screen."

Like its larger cousin, the TouchClient8™ runs on XP embedded, and has stereo speakers, dual USB, dual Ethernet, and dual RS-232 ports - allowing the possibility of local automation directly from the TouchClient8™.  It only requires a 12V power source & a network connection, or a WiFi network using its built-in 802.11b/g wireless card.  There are no moving parts like fans or hard drives, allowing every TouchClient8™ to enjoy long life and high-reliability.

"Installing the TouchClient8™ is quite simple," continues Cheung, "Every TouchClient8™ comes with its own pre-assembled rough-in box that installs into the wall.  From here, the screen assembly mounts in magnetically, allowing complete installations to take minutes, not hours."

Another feature carried over from the original design is write-protection of the entire operating system.  When enabled, the solid state drive on the TouchClient becomes impervious to viruses, spyware, and other malware.  Any program installed is automatically wiped upon a restart.  Protection can be disabled by an installer looking to add additional software or tweak the panel's configuration. Once complete, it can be re-enabled for full protection.

The TouchClient8™ in-wall panels are available now.  For more details and specifications on the entire touch panel line from VidaBox™ and other digital entertainment and control solutions, please visit the company website at, or see them at International CES in the North Tower Suite H22-121!
