SYLMAR, CA, November 22, 2010 — Xantech, a leader in the field of audio/video remote control and distribution for 40 years, has introduced WiPad, a secure and easy-to-install solution that enables an Apple iPad® to be permanently wall-mounted for use as a touchscreen A/V control interface or standalone iPad use in commercial and residential applications. The Xantech WiPad is designed not only to securely protect the device but also to allow easy access to power, audio output and other connectivity.
With Apple’s iPad becoming an increasingly practical and popular control interface, the Xantech WiPad presents an ideal solution for system integrators seeking an easily mounted and tamperproof solution for residential and commercial A/V installations. The precisely machined aluminum construction is finished with brushed surfaces for a high-end look that blends into any conference room, hotel hospitality kiosk or other application.
The Xantech WiPad measures 12 in. (L) x 9.81 in. (H) x 0.875 in. (D) and is foam-lined to insulate the iPad and prevent scratches. The cover is secured with four chrome security screws and a slot is also provided for securing the frame with a standard PC locking cable. The design includes speaker vents for the iPad speaker, provides standard paperclip-sized slots on the top and side for accessing the power and volume control buttons without having to open the frame, and includes wire management grooves for the synch/power and audio output cables.
On the rear panel, VESA standard mounting hole patterns allow an easy fit with VESA swivel mounting brackets. Hole patterns on the panel also support mating with North American and European standard metal dual-gang electrical junction boxes for convenient wall mounting.
