Product ID: NTS100
NTS100: Video Storm iPad app adapter

NTS100: Video Storm iPad app adapter to Control CMX and VMX component switches via iPad

Model NTS100       

Legacy product. NOT recommended for new installations. 

There are hundreds of media players on the market (Roku, Apple TV, Boxee, Goggle TV, etc).  Ours is the first designed to be simple to integrate in your system.  While the competition is pushing proprietary solutions that try to lock your customer into one brand or ecosystem, we use open source community developed media players that support everything on the internet and in your home.  Then to complete the solution we add customized software for each supported control system, simplifying your install and making it work the way YOU want it to.

Video Storm media players make your installation headache free and give your customers access to more media than anyone else.

Home automation features
Ethernet control features allow external control of matrix switches, your TV, and XBMC by supported control systems or mobile apps.

Media player features  
NTS100 uses XBMC as its main media player engine.  We believe that XBMC is the most powerful, flexible, and universally compatible player available.  Here is a very abbreviated list of some of the most important features.

  • Extensive video and audio library support (NAS drives, other servers, etc)
  • Playback of virtually any video or audio format (up to full HD 1080p)
  • Playback of any media from the internet or cloud applications  (literally thousands of add-on channels to choose from)
  • Supports video and audio renderer playback from any mobile device (virtual speaker and screens for your phones and tablets)
  • Supports HD video streaming from IP security cameras
  • Easy to use ADD-ONs allow new internal channels to be dynamically added whenever they become available
  • Many different user interface skins to choose from
  • Open source, community developed and supported platform with millions of users worldwide

The best way to explain what it can do is just to show you.  The videos below give you a look into the various ways it can be used.
