SE2 Labs announced the shipment of its ITC One (Integrated Theater Console) home entertainment system, which integrates audio, HD video, gaming, DVR functions, A/V signal processing and control into a one-box solution that is roughly the size of two PC consoles.
According to ITC, the ITC One unites revolutionary design, world-class audio and video performance, and exquisite simplicity into an easy-to-use, first-of-its-kind home theater device that delivers all of the functionality of multiple components without the complexities, inefficiencies, tribulations and confusing connectivity issues.
In another break with convention for home entertainment hardware, each and every ITC One is unique, and perfectly suited to the customer’s needs and requirements. Customers design their own personalized systems on the SE2 website. Each ITC One is then built and shipped within two weeks of the build date.
The list of previously standalone components that can be included with any ITC One is quite long— Blu-ray Disc drive, Apple TV®, DIRECTV® high-definition DVR, Dish Network® DVR or national cable providers’ DVR (including Comcast, Time Warner, Cox Cable and more), AMX NetLinx® Control System, Bryston pre-amp processor with full digital outputs, IcePower high-end D-class amplifiers, Vidikron high-end video processor, Apple Video iPod dock, proprietary remote control, Microsoft® Xbox 360™, Windows Media Center, Nintendo Wii™, Transparent Cable power conditioning, Transparent cabling and cable harness, and an anti-noise/vibration system.
To create the ITC one, SE2 Labs has partnered with some of the top high-end brands in the A/V industry. Using floating circuit boards on removable cards to minimize size and maximize performance, the ITC One provides a centralized power system and single touch screen (or remote) control of all of its internal components as well as connected video display, auxiliary components, screens, drapery and room lighting. The remote control for the ITC One features innovations like color volume feedback, remote locator beeper and RF communication. The net result is a single console that is astoundingly a mere 17 5/8 inches Wide x 23 7/8 inches high x 22 inches deep.
“SE2 Labs thought of everything with the ITC One, so you don’t have to,” said company founder and CEO Michael Pyle. “Having been an installer in my previous life, I was constantly surprised by how well systems didn’t work. We set out to solve that problem for both the consumer and their installer. Anyone can use the ITC One—absolutely anyone.”
Upgrades and maintenance are also easy, since every part of the ITC One is modular. All parts can be swapped or repaired with little effort, and SE2 Labs provides a five-year warranty on each system.
With seven full patents, the ITC One is the only high-end, all-in-one home entertainment system of its kind on the market today. The ITC One has an MSRP of $25,000.
