Autonomic Controls, the leading provider of integration software for Microsoft Media Center has announced a new product that enables remote access to music and video media using UMPC's and touch panels.

Autonomic Controls has announced the release of Mirage, which can turn UMPCs, Web-Tablets, other devices into a sophisticated two way touch panel remote control for Media Center and Windows Media Player. Mirage allows remote management and playback of digital media stored on a Media Center PC or network.

Listeners can browse their digital music CD covers while outside on the Patio, for example, and playback their selections on the whole house audio system.

Used in a home theater, customers can browse their entire movie collection on a touch panel, flipping though digital DVD covers and then send it to the big screen for viewing.

Mirage also provides a way to browse digital photographs, videos, and recorded TV without being tied to a computer.

Autonomic Controls' is known in the custom electronics industry for producing modules to control Media Center using sophisticated control systems such as those made by AMX, Crestron and HAI (Home Automation, Inc). Consumers and custom electronics installers have been asking for the same functionality using widely accessible web tablets, Windows CE touch panels, and PDAs. Mirage was designed to answer that demand. It can be used as a standalone touch panel solution, or as an feature in a complete automation install.

This week at CEDIA, Mirage is being demonstrated in Microsoft's Booth #320.

Autonomic Control's automation system modules can be seen in their booth #3806, at AMX's booth #501, and Niveus Media's booth #294.
