VidaBox Ultimate iPad On-wall Mount

VidaBox LLC today announced that the company is now shipping its on-wall iPad mounting solutions. A perfect fusion of form and function at a great value, the on-wall mounts add a touch of elegance to any high-end installation, bolstered with the iPower charging station — a custom-engineered solution available exclusively from VidaBox — to deliver power to up to four iPad-compatible power feeds over CAT5.

"The iPad is a revolutionary device, and more and more consumers are looking to unleash its true potential by incorporating it into their home systems to control their environments. For end users, our on-wall mounts provide this level of sophistication by making the iPad a natural, seamless extension of any room. For integrators, they are easy to assemble and install, and the optional iPower station makes reliably powering them a breeze. And all of this is offered at an amazing value that won't break the bank."

- Steven Cheung, president of VidaBox LLC.

Designed to complement the look of any décor, VidaBox iPad mounts feature slim, sleek 19-mm aluminum frames in seven different colors and finishes: Black Metalline, Brushed German Silver, Florentine Black, Florentine Grey, Florentine Silver, Florentine Walnut, and Matte Black. The frames can also be painted to seamlessly blend into any environment. For electronic systems contractors, the optional iPower charging station allows multiple mounted iPads to be continually charged from a single centralized location, without having to utilize unreliable USB-over-CAT5 extenders.

The VidaBox iPad wall mounts/frames are available now at a suggested retail price of $149, while the optional iPower complete iPad charging solution retails for $399.

Integrators in attendance at the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) show, Feb. 1-3, will get an exclusive look at VidaBox's complete digital entertainment and control solutions at stand 9F138.

Case in point… 3 touchscreens with power adapters included for about the same cost - of this setup without iPads… so get ready to add another $500 or so per location for that. Sure the iPad has tons of apps and you can browse the web on them, but do you really want to do anything like that while standing facing a wall in your home?!?

Disclamer: I don't have any familiarity with the product mentioned above - it's just the first thing that came up in my search. I realize that it's only meant to be part of a larger whole-house install - but then so is the VidaBox product as well, right?

Maybe I'm being a bit too obtuse here, but the iPad is a device designed for portability. What's the point of putting it in a wall-mount?

That strikes me as more than just a bit ludicrous.

My thoughts EXACTLY! If you wanted a wall-mounted, touchscreen interface for controlling A/V equipment, home automation, etc….. then there are numerous alternatives that will all be much cheaper than an iPad.

??? I'm stupified.

I mean, it's OK if you can easily pull it out of the wall-mount so you can keep it next to you as you sit on the couch, maybe reading your paper between the moments you need to use it as a remote for your set-up, but to permanently stick it in a wall-mount?

That strikes me as more than just a bit ludicrous.
