Avaak Launches ‘VueCrew’ Beta Program at CES 2009
Gadget Gurus and Early Adopters to Receive a Sneak Preview of Next-Generation, Wireless Remote Viewing System
San Diego, CA — Avaak, the industry leader in easy-to-use, wire-free personal video networking technology, today announced the launch of its VueCrew beta program. Open to International CES 2009 attendees and tech enthusiasts nationwide, the program will allow users to be the first to experience the Vue personal video network—a live, remote video system that enables consumers to view their family, home or business anytime and from anywhere—before it comes to market in spring 2009.
“Just as the iPod revolutionized the way consumers experience music and entertainment, we believe the Vue personal video network will change the way users remotely view their lives on a daily basis,” said Gioia Messinger, founder and chief executive officer at Avaak. “The core technology, which has been in use by the military and homeland security professionals for the last four years, will now provide consumers with a new level of connectivity, simplicity, and peace of mind while they are away from their homes or businesses. Members of the VueCrew program have a very rare opportunity to test a product that is destined to become a household fixture in the very near future.”
The Vue personal video network was recently named a finalist in the Consumer Electronic Association’s i-stage awards, which honored the 15 most innovative new consumer technology products coming to market in 2009. The Vue system consists of miniature, battery-operated, wireless video cameras and a Web-based monitoring service that is available 24/7. Unlike other existing complex monitoring systems, the Vue is incredibly simple to install, with no wiring, cables, or software required. As a result, the system is easy to expand or modify, and cameras can moved inside or outside without reconfiguration.
For a $50 participation fee, each VueCrew beta member will receive a complete Vue personal video network that includes two wireless cameras, a gateway, and four patented mounting brackets. If any member is not satisfied with the product, they will receive a full money-back guarantee upon completion of the beta program. Throughout the program, VueCrew members will have the opportunity to influence Avaak’s product development process. Their feedback will provide first-hand insight on product features and functionality, and may serve to uncover some amazing new applications in the process.
To become a VueCrew beta member, please visit Avaak’s booth at CES (Sands IP233), or simply sign up at www.VueZone.com/VueCrew by midnight Jan. 19, 2009. CES attendees who apply for the program at Avaak’s booth will automatically be entered to win a free VueCrew membership. One winner will be selected each day of the show. The program will begin Feb. 4, 2009, and will be limited to 100 qualified applicants.
