Windows Media Center Ultimate Install Contest

I mentioned on the blog recently that we were running a competition to find the best installation of Windows Media Center out there and last week we announced the winner of the competition. 

CEPro has a detailed account of what went into the Media Center installation:

"The installation, in Orem, Utah, features 12 distributed audio zones, a media center “extender” server, 4 Xbox 360s, a UMPC touchpanel, a 12” LifePoint panel, Insteon lighting control, Aprilaire thermostats, DSC security integration and Exceptional Innovation’s Lifeware automation software."

The system was installed in the home of a pro golfer apparently - sounds I've got two things in common with the owner then - golf and the ultimate home entertainment system! - unfortunately my handicap's not that great yet - but it's something to aspire to :-)  I love how the owner uses the technology to analyse their golf swing in high def - I so need this for my swing!

I like this quote from the winner who captures just how easy to use these systems really are:

"The homeowners love the technology and love how easy it is to use. The husband has always loved technology, but this is the first time the wife actually feels confident in controlling the technology in her home—thanks to Media Center.”

Check out all the photos of the install!
