VUDU XL & VUDU Vault
The VUDU XL is a 1 TB VUDU box that will store about 500 standard-definition movies and offer several features for integration with IP-based home control systems, including NetRemote functionality and the use of select IR remotes. Additionally, the VUDU Vault (beta) is a new secure storage area for purchased movies off the hard drive of the box. The VUDU Vault is being delivered to existing boxes through the VUDU 1.3 software update. It enables consumers to move owned titles from the VUDU hard drive to a secure area on VUDU servers to free space for additional purchases. VUDU also has made available an IR receiver kit for both VUDU and VUDU XL to allow for the operation of the service using approved programmable remotes. (Available on VUDU’s Web site for $39.00.) The VUDU XL is available for $999.
