On Sunday, February 2, 2014 televisions across the country will be tuned into Super Bowl XLVIII, the first cold-weather outdoor Super Bowl in NFL history. Rather than brave the elements, Control4 (NASDAQ: CTRL), a leading provider of home automation systems, has scoped out some of the best automated spaces sure to provide a one-of-a-kind game day adventure.
This three-story, Texas-based residence features a whole house automation system and boasts a multilevel pool and patio area containing separate audio zones for the pool, cabana, master patio, and patio TVs. Complete with a rock wall tavern, beer taps, game room, and a 5.1-channel family room surround sound system with an 80-inch TV, the home also includes automated lighting, multi-zone audio/video, and shading, all seamlessly controlled by Control4 via iPads and iPhones. During halftime, guests can play a quick game of pick-up on the second-floor basketball court which also incorporates a hefty flat screen for your game viewing pleasure. (Images Here)
Personal Sports Bar
Three 70-inch Sharp flat screen TVs are just the beginning for this Texas game room-turned customized sports-bar. Armed with Control4 technology at the helm, this media room is custom programmed so that a simple touch of the icon labeled “ESPN” on the Control4 touchscreen or homeowner’s iPad immediately turns each of the TVs to a different, preset ESPN channel. Tucked inside the hand-built pullout rack at the bar is a powerful arsenal of A/V solutions including an Onkyo receiver, Xbox, Sony Blu-ray player, and three DirecTV satellite boxes. Of course, not to be outdone by your typical sports bar, this automated man cave also features a refrigerator, kegerator, microwave oven, ice maker and more. (Images Here)
Sports Lover’s Paradise
Broncos fans may hope to score a personal invite to this ESPN-style media room, located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, featuring four 46-inch Samsung LCD TVs that flank a 55-inch Samsung LCD perched upon a motorized mount. Each TV is fed by a high-definition Comcast cable box, creating a true sports fan’s dream by delivering the perfect set-up for watching multiple sporting events at one time. A Control4 automation system manages the video wall allowing the homeowner to watch all five TVs at once, while the integrated whole house audio system allows friends watching the big game in the sports room, move to any of the home’s 11 entertainment zones and never miss a play. The space also features framed jerseys, inviting leather theater seats with cup holders, cushioned barstools and backlit sports placards. (Images Here)
The Ultimate Fan Cave
This real-life fantasy fan zone includes two separate video walls, a theater, an arcade with vintage video and pinball game consoles, air hockey, foosball tables, and two separate bar areas with seating for a dozen people. Fully integrated and controlled through a Control4 home automation system, one bar wall features a Samsung 46” full HD 3D Smart TV, flanked by two 40” versions while a secondary theater wall boasts a 65” Samsung Slim LED Smart TV and two 55” screens with an optional 92” projection screen that can drop down from its hidden space in the ceiling.

Watch on the Go
Quite possibly the ultimate tailgating machine, this American Eagle 45H coach bus is stacked with a Control4 system that powers a 122-inch roll-down screen, a 4,000 lumen projector, additional 52-inch, 42-inch and 30-inch televisions, satellite receivers, two 1,000-watt speakers, and a Blu-ray player. Custom automation allows all four television screens to display the same game at once, or different games on each, from just a touch of a button on an iPad. (Images Here)

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...

The increasing popularity of the Internet of Things necessitates that our physical and cognitive relationship with wearable technology will change rapidly in the near future.

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
