BitWise Controls has added the VidaBox LiivNAS GUI Module to its growing lineup of third-party templates and modules available to BitWise Controls integrators, now available to systems integrators through the BitWise online store.
“The new VidaBox module is an exciting release for us. It’s the easiest way for BitWise dealers to provide an affordable, powerful movie server and playback solution,” said Mark Buster, chief technology officer of BitWise Controls. “The module allows users to browse their movie collection by cover art, and includes search and sort capabilities. Integrated Dune HD support creates a seamless transition between browsing and playback, and it even works with our handheld Room Remote."
Through the Bitwise Dealer Store, integrators can see their entire module purchase history, making it simple to provide updates, additions, and enhancements in the future, the company says.
The VidaBox module works with the company’s LiivNAS media server products and communicates with the LiivNAS server. It automatically generates a clean and simple interface that looks at home within the BitWise Controls ecosystem. Users can browse their movie collection by cover art (which can be displayed in three different sizes) and access dynamic movie details, additional information, and multi-disc playback options on their BitWise system. Integrated Dune HD playback control is included in the module at no extra cost. The VidaBox module even supports BitWise’s Room Remote for control of the Dune HD player (BC1 and BC2 controllers).
“We're very excited to add compatibility with Bitwise Controls, as it's been a frequently requested item by many of our dealers. By combining Bitwise Controls and VidaBox media systems, integrators can provide an unbeatable value for integrating home automation along with powerful control of their Blu-ray and DVD movie collections,” said Steven Cheung, president of VidaBox.
The VidaBox LiivNAS module requires iOS devices running on iOS7 or higher, a LiivNAS server, and a Dune HD player hardware for playback support. The module works with BC1, BC2, and BC4 controllers.
