Perfect Home Theater Acquires VidaBox LLC’s Media Systems Division

Perfect Home Theater to acquire VidaBox Media Systems and continue its popular product lines. Sales and Support of Systems to Be Continued by New Owner.

ASHLAND, M.A. — May 5th, 2016 — Perfect Home Theater, an integrated systems builder, chassis manufacturer, and full-service installer of Home Theater products, today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire VidaBox LLC's Media Systems division. The VidaBox Media Systems division will be rebranded under Perfect Home Theater's own name, with all future service and support available via Perfect Home Theater, ensuring a smooth transition for existing clients. For existing dealers and resellers, Perfect Home Theater will be releasing a new line of products called "PerfectNAS" and "PerfectPlayer," which are functionally the same as VidaBox Media Systems' LiivNAS and LiivStreamer, complete with familiar features like "Drop-n-Rip Archiving" with movie and music playback.


"We're excited to pass the torch onto an experienced systems builder like Perfect Home Theater," exclaims Steven Cheung, President of VidaBox LLC. "One of our concerns has always been the availability of future support for the thousands of systems we have in the field. We've been working with Perfect Home Theater for many years, and have been known the company to be excellent in their quality of products and service - making it an ideal match for both parties."

Support for in-warranty systems sold by VidaBox LLC will still be available directly from VidaBox until the end of the warranty terms. Out-of-warranty support, and services such as remote login support or system repairs will be available from Perfect Home Theater at a nominal cost. All existing quotes and new sales inquiries will be handled by Perfect Home Theater, whose new "PerfectNAS" product line will be a direct replacement for VidaBox Media System's LiivNAS and other offerings.

"We are excited to acquire VidaBox LLC's Media Systems division, and to continue serving clients coming from VidaBox Media Systems' division," adds Zygmunt Wojewoda, Owner of Perfect Home Theater. "I have worked with Steven Cheung for many years, and we share same commitment to quality and customer service."

The terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The acquisition is expected to close in May 2016, at the same time that the new PerfectNAS product line will be shipping and available - starting at $1650 for a single "Drop-n-Rip" archiving-ready unit. Custom Media Systems with advanced features like RAID protection or anytime expandability can also be quoted and ordered, similar to previous VidaBox LiivNAS offerings.

"As many of our dealers and clients know, our KIOSKS division for our iPad, Android, and Windows tablet mounts have grown tremendously over the past 18 months - far faster than any of us here expected," Cheung continued. "Due to the rapid growth of our KIOSK division, we had to make a decision to ‘pass the torch' for our Media Systems product line to another capable, well-trained company so that we can continue to serve our existing client base best. We certainly didn't want to simply discontinue this feature-rich LiivNAS line, nor leave our market without support - and I believe our Media System's division acquisition by Zygmunt and his team is the best possible outcome that benefits our customers and dealers with continued product availability and technical support, as we both grow our companies."
