Grand Blanc, MI, August 20, 2007 — Azentek International, the premier manufacturer of portable and in-vehicle computing solutions, today announced a technology partnership with DiMora Motorcar to provide high-performance computers for the Natalia SLS 2 sport luxury sedan. These PCs will deliver entertainment, business, telecommunications, navigation, and automobile diagnostics using the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system.
“The Natalia’s technology will be driven by the most sophisticated computer systems ever used in a production automobile,” said Alfred DiMora, Founder of DiMora Motorcar. “The driver and passengers will have an incredible array of navigation, communications, entertainment, business, and educational capabilities. The heart of this versatility will be computers by Azentek, winner of the GM ‘Most Innovative Product’ award at the 2006 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. These computers will each have multi-core processors, gigabytes of memory, and over a terabyte of digital storage. Constantly linked to the Internet through multiple communications channels, these computers can respond to virtually any need or whim.”
The driver or passengers can interface with the Azentek computers in almost any manner they choose: touch screen, mouse, keyboard, voice, camera/camcorder, Pocket PC, Smartphone, iPod, USB ports, auxiliary inputs, etc. Additionally, a fluid quality sensor from Flowtonics will be providing the computers with real-time engine-fluid diagnostics at all times.
“The innovations incorporated into Azentek’s Atlas series of in-dash Windows Vista PCs made it an absolute must-have for the world’s most luxurious sport sedan” commented Johnny Cooper, Azentek’s President and CEO. “The Natalia SLS 2 will feature at least two Atlas units, each with a very long list of capabilities, including voice recognition; AM, FM, XM, Sirius, and HD Radio; Bluetooth; CD, MP3, WMA, and DVD audio/video; GPS navigation; VOIP and cellular phone; Microsoft Office; and any software the user chooses to run on the high-speed Windows Vista computer. The computers can also be upgraded easily as new technologies become available.”
Headquartered in Grand Blanc, MI, Azentek is a major manufacturer of portable and in-vehicle computing solutions, including the private labeled FordLink system currently available in Ford trucks. This fall, Azentek will begin shipping the Atlas CPC-1000, their latest flagship in-dash radio replacement PC. Among the first of its kind, this technologically advanced computer has been designed specifically around the automotive industry standard 2-DIN radio space and will fit into over 180 million vehicles on the road today.
