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 http://www.vidabox.com, or see them at
International CES in the North Tower Suite H22-121!
