The TouchClient20 sports an HDMI input, which makes it simple to switch between the media center and another HD source such as a game console or cable service. It integrates simply into an existing VidaBox server setup and is able to act as an extender for Windows Media Center in any setup.
The base model of the TouchClient20 offers an 80GB hard drive, a standard DVD drive and a price tag of $3,199. Fully decked out, the extender seems more like a server in itself with 2TB of hard drive space and an integrated Blu-ray drive.
“People love having touch screens on their phones,” says VidaBox president Steven Chung. “The TouchClient20 is a great way to catch someone's attention.” He mentions that not only is the new touchscreen extender great for the home, but it's a great showpiece for dealers as well.
The TouchClient20 is a versatile system, playing DVD and Blu-ray movies, streaming Netflix as well as networked video and audio, and all with a touch screen to control it. Adding to that, the cost of running the TouchClient20 is pretty minimal, as the entire system runs on less than 100W. VidaBox's TouchClient20 is shipping now and is available through authorized dealers.
