Loveland, CO - November 13, 2008 - The Colorado vNet Vibe Touchscreen Amplifier has been selected as a 2009 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Award Honoree. Judged by a panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the trade press, the Vibe Touchscreen was recognized as one of the most innovative consumer electronics (CE) products in the Integrated Home Systems category for its simplicity, intuitiveness, and striking design.


Originally released as the central access point for the Colorado vNet IP -based Vibe™ Audio System, the Vibe Color Touchscreen Amplifier is a powerful interface whose 7 -inch widescreen display offers full access and control of a wide range of audio sources including the Vibe Audio Server, iPod® docks, AM/FM tuners, SIRIUS® satellite radio, and nearly all consumer electronic devices. With the capability to stream multiple independent programs to different rooms simultaneously, the Vibe Touchscreen displays full metadata information including album cover art. Its built -in digital amplifier delivers 70 Watts of power, eliminating the need for external amplifiers, however there is a selectable Fixed/Variable Line Out jack to add an external amplifier or powered subwoofer to the system if desired. The Vibe Touchscreen can be flush -mounted on a wall or used in a deskstand, and comes with multiple background templates and black or paintable white bezels to match room décor.

Significant enhancements in October of 2007 and May of 2008 provide intuitive, pre -integrated control over a broad array of home systems using the same stylish Vibe Touchscreen. Switches, thermostats, dials, keypads, etc. are integrated into the touchscreen display to monitor CCTV cameras and control audio, climate and security systems, lights, shades, fountains, home theater screens, and more -throughout the entire house. The Vibe Touchscreen appeals to those who desire a whole -house control solution with simplicity, intuitiveness, and striking design. It eliminates wall clutter, providing homeowners with convenient control from every touchscreen.
