Architect of All-in-One Home Entertainment System Creates an Entire New Product Category, Spurs Evolution of CE Industry
DRAPER, UTAH — September 19, 2007 — SE2 Labs announced today the introduction of a revolutionary new product called the ITC One (Integrated Theater Console). The ITC One is the world’s first personalized, fully-integrated, one-box home entertainment solution. More than a new product launch, the introduction of SE2 Labs’ ITC One will result in an entirely new category in home electronics. The ITC One will be unveiled at CEDIA EXPO 2007 in Denver, September 5-9.
With each ITC One, custom installers or end users design a personalized system from the SE2 website. Each ITC One is then built and shipped within days. The following components can be included: Microsoft X-Box 360, X-Box 360 HD DVD Player, Nintendo Wii, DirecTV, High-Def TiVo, Dish Network DVR, national cable providers DVR, including Comcast, Time Warner, Cox Cable and many more, AMX Netlinx Control System, High-End Digital Surround Processor, Bryston Pre-Amp Processor with full digital outputs, IcePower High-End D-Class Amplifiers, High-End Video Processor, Front Touchpanel Screen, Apple Video iPod with Dock, proprietary Remote Control, Power Conditioning, Transparent Cabling and Cable Harness and an Anti-Noise and Vibration System — all integrated through a revolutionary design, working together from an elegant, compact box. It’s like a house full of electronics slimmed down to a small console — 18″ Wide x 21″ High x 20″ Deep.
Upgrades and maintenance are easy, since every part of the ITC One is modular. All parts can be swapped or repaired with little effort — and warranties are provided for each component from the original manufacturer.
To provide a complete home theater setup, SE2 Labs has partnered with some of the industry’s most elite manufacturers, including Vidikron and Triad. These manufacturers have custom built ‘good, better, best’ speakers, projectors and screens specifically to be used with the ITC One.
The ITC One can even be customized for both residential and commercial applications, including corporate and education environments — providing all multimedia needs, even video conferencing, for the board room or class room.
With the ITC One, a variety of components that would normally take up rooms are reduced to a small box. No need to destroy walls for wiring, uproot carpets, or build unattractive display units that don’t integrate well with your home. The product was also designed to make an installer’s job easier. All installers need to do is connect the power, video source and speakers, and turn it on. That’s it. No cabling headaches, no racks, no integration worries. With the ITC One, you just plug it in and play.
A patented cooling system maximizes the effects of induction to keep circuitry cool, while four silent,
high-powered fans keep internal temperatures low. It represents a significant advantage in cooling over other systems, where internal temperatures often rise to dangerous levels. A built-in thermostat control and temperature gauge rounds out the cooling system.
An advanced mechanical isolation system protects the ITC One’s circuitry from airborne and mechanical
vibration and keeps internal noises from escaping (such as a hard drive or transport). A sophisticated power conditioning system is preinstalled. Cable connections are recessed into the chassis, so you can push the unit against a wall without straining cable connections. The rear panel has lacing straps for wire management and stress relief.
Finally, the remote control for the ITC One is in a different league, with innovations like color volume feedback, remote locator beeper and RF communication. It is ergonomically designed and easy to operate. Buttons light up automatically in the dark when the unit senses movement. Each remote is tested with that individual system before shipping.
With 11 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 will be sold through custom installer dealers starting at an MSRP of $19,900.00.
CI experts who have experienced the ITC One can’t stop raving about the product:
