Calrad's Newly Launched Multimedia Control Software will Access Stand-Alone Equipment Using GC-100 Network Adapter
Denver, CO USA - September 5, 2007 - (CEDIA Expo 2007, Global Caché Booth #226 and Calrad Booth #359) Global Caché, a leading provider of connectivity products, announced today that Calrad Electronics, manufacturer of a broad range of electronic products will offer Global Caché's GC -100 Network Adapters, sensors, and IR receivers as part of their new xLobby home theater solution. The integrated solution provides seamless control and access to previously stand -alone equipment including entertainment systems, lighting, and more.
Calrad recently obtained exclusive right to xLobby, enabling commercial distribution of the popular and widely used software through its established distribution network, including system integrators, ProAV installers, and distributors. xLobby software enables convenient access and control of media content and equipment from single or multiple zones using a remote control, touch panel, or mouse/keyboard interface.
Global Caché's GC -100 Network Adapter physically connects diverse devices throughout a home and business to a network so they can be controlled, automated, and maintained by network -based software. Global Caché offers additional connectivity products, including an IR Learner, IR receiver and sensors that can be connected to a network. Global Caché products are designed to work with other standards based products.
According to Wes Black, Calrad's VP of Research and Development, the combination of xLobby software and Global Caché hardware delivers on Calrad's desire to provide a robust and attractive media controller at an affordable price point. "Our customers understand the concept of open systems and the flexibility and cost savings they provide. xLobby software has two thousand active users, and Global Caché has over ten thousand units installed in the field. That's tried and true capability, while being leading edge at the same time. We know our customers are going to love this combo."
"Calrad is a well known and highly respected supplier of electronic equipment," said Global Caché VP of Business Development, Robin Ford. "Their move into offering software to control and automate equipment in that space makes a lot of sense. We're really pleased that they've chosen to use our products with xLobby and expect great success with their well established customer base."
