VidaBox Releases the vController – a Solid, Feature-Rich Hardware
Solution Integratable with Software-Based Automation packages
Westbury, NY – July 17th – VidaBox
is excited to offer the vController, a powerful rack-mountable automation
solution. Designed for heavy-duty automation, it comes standard with four USB
ports, dual Ethernet Ports, VGA video out, and two standard RS-232 ports.
Optionally, it can be configured with up to nine RS-232 ports for the most
demanding of integration projects.
“With the growing popularity of PC-based automation platforms, integrators have
been looking for a solid, pre-built hardware solution where they can reliably
run their software,” explains Steven Cheung, President of VidaBox LLC. “The
vController is specifically designed to meet that need. It comes in a
rack-mountable form factor at only 1U tall, yet sports a wide array of
connectivity options. When used in conjunction with software packages such as
Charmed Quark System’s CQC platform, it can replace proprietary solutions and
provide similar functionality at a fraction of the cost.”
Based on the XP operating system, the vController is compatible with a wide
range of automation solutions, allowing an integrator to combine it with their
favorite software package to control a myriad of devices via TCP/IP, RS-232,
IR, and other communication protocols.
“While the vController is available as a standalone product,” continues Cheung,
“it’s ideally used with CQC as a part of a predesigned vAutomation package,
serving as its automation & control backbone. By choosing a vAutomation
package, integrators can save hours of design work and product testing that
traditionally needs to go into every new project, reaping tremendous time
The vController is available now, and ships with 2 RS-232 ports with options
for 6 or 9 ports total. For more details and specifications on the VidaBox
vController and their comprehensive line of media servers and extenders, please
