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 to work 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.
To provide a complete home theater setup, SE2 Labs has also partnered with some of the industry’s most elite manufacturers, including Vidikron and Triad, to sell the ITC One as a package alongside ‘good, better, best’ speakers, projectors and screens. The ITC One can even be customized for commercial applications, including corporate and education environments — providing all multimedia needs, even video conferencing, for the board room or class room.
SE2 Labs’ ITC One is the brainchild of Michael Pyle, a creative problem solver with over 12 years experience in high-end home theater and control integration. A true pioneer of ultra high-end home theaters, Pyle co-founded A/V installation firm Aurant, well known for designing some of the most sophisticated home integration systems imaginable. Pyle has spent years researching and specializing in intuitive user interfaces. He has over a decade experience selling and installing successful luxury CE brands.
Pyle cited Marketing Matters’ long experience in building luxury brands in the consumer electronics, custom installation and technology markets, as well as the agency’s ability to reach affluent customers who purchase premium home goods.
“Marketing Matters came highly recommended to us by some of the biggest names in the custom installation industry,” said Michael Pyle, president and CEO of SE2 Labs. “They have demonstrated that they have the drive, energy and know-how to launch our new product and build the momentum we’re looking for.”
“We’re very excited to add SE2 Labs to our client portfolio,” said Coleen Sterns, president of the Hollywood, Florida-based Marketing Matters. “I truly believe SE2 Labs and the ITC One will revolutionize our industry. Never before has a manufacturer created a one-box solution that integrates so many components and that is so easy to install and place within a home. We expect great things for this company.”
