VidaBox LLC & Extra Vegetables Ltd. jointly introduces a Control4 driver, providing direct IP control of any VidaBox Blu-ray, DVD, and music system from any Control4 device. Available from Extra Vegetables now for dealers & integrators.

VidaBox LLC and Extra Vegetables Ltd. jointly introduces a Control4 driver, providing direct IP control of any VidaBox Blu -ray, DVD, and music system from any Control4 device. This new driver provides integrators with yet another control system option, on top of existing capability with Crestron, AMX, RTI, URC, and other top -tier control systems.


"With Control4's growing popularity, it was important to have a driver ready for our dealers," says Steven Cheung, President of VidaBox, LLC. "We're glad to have partnered with Extra Vegetables as the choice for our Control4 driver's development. Their technical expertise and experience will provide for the simple and reliable integration that installers are looking for."

Using Extra Vegetable's new C4 driver, VidaBox systems can be fully controlled via Ethernet - without the use of any IR beads - providing an added level of reliability. Full 2 -way communications for browsing of cover art for movies, music, and other rich metadata is in the works, and may be released in 2012.

"Since VidaBox systems are networked devices by nature, controlling our systems with this driver will require absolutely no new cables," continues Cheung, "It simply doesn't get any easier!"

"We are delighted to be working with VidaBox," says Jane Scotland, Commercial Director of Extra Vegetables Ltd. "We know that Control4 integrators are looking to provide their customers with the best possible solution. Having IP control enables dealers to easily incorporate VidaBox products into their installations."

The Control4 driver for VidaBox is available for purchase from Extra Vegetables now. Dealers with existing systems must contact VidaBox first for the latest software upgrades for Control4 compatibility. More information can be found at http://vidabox.com/control4
