Garden City Park, NY - January 11, 2013 - VidaBox and La Maison Interactive (LMI) announces the release of Crestron drivers for the LiivNAS, LiivNAS XL, RackServerV2, RACK24, and other VidaBox Media Systems. Integrators can utilize these VidaBox Media Systems for simple, 1-step archiving of any unencrypted CD, DVD, or Blu-ray disc, and enjoy integrated playback and transport control through any Dune HD Media Player from any Crestron control system, complete with high-res cover art and rich metadata on any interface.

"VidaBox continues to make strides in bringing truly affordable multi-room movie distribution to pro AV installers," explains Steven Cheung, President of VidaBox, LLC. "With this new driver, Crestron integrators and their clients can take advantage of our extremely affordable movie servers and NAS units' Drop-n-Rip technology, and conveniently start playback with a single button - all at a fraction of the cost of high-end movie server solutions!"

Complete solutions using a VidaBox LiivNAS with Dune HD and Crestron compatibility start at around 2000, and are scalable. Projects can start out with the most basic amount of storage with one Dune HD Player to minimize cost. Additional servers can be added at any time to seamlessly expand storage, or new player units can be installed later on to support multi-room streaming.

"We are very excited to work with VidaBox and offer Crestron integrators our integrated driver solution for VidaBox's family of Media Systems" says Gilles Sicard, Principal of La Maison Interactive. "VidaBox comprehensive line of Media NAS units and Media Servers are perhaps the only ready-to-use movie server at this affordable price point providing both movie and music storage, yet be fully compatible with popular control systems like Control4, RTI, and now - Crestron!"

Not only can VidaBox Media Systems store and stream movies plus their metadata to Control4, Crestron, and RTI control systems, but it can also store and share music as well. CDs can be archived with its Drop-n-Rip disc drive, and digital music files can be easily transferred to the systems' storage via the network. All VidaBox systems are also iTunes compatible, allowing iTunes installation and synchronization of multiple libraries with services like iCloud and iTunes Match. Instead of having multiple, disjoint libraries, an entire home's music collection can be stored and be accessed from a single VidaBox Media NAS or Server, bringing an unparalleled level of convenience for any user.

"Our focus on convenience, affordability, scalability, and integratability make our VidaBox Media Systems the smart choice for any installation or setup!" Cheung continues. "The system is perfect for everyone and can fit any budget - ranging from folks who have a small movie and music collection, or families who may have thousands of discs that they want to store and archive. With our comprehensive product line, we can provide unique, custom solutions to virtually meet any multi-zone AV need."
