If you're lucky enough to own an Escient
digital media system, then the company has a new version 1.1 of its Vision software ready for your hot hands. The update is free (you did shell out some long green for the Escient system, remember) for owners of Vision VS and VC gear, and promises a more responsive UI, stability and improved video quality -- always good things for your oh-so-connected casa. Also making the cut is 2-way control for Vision Movies, Music, Rhapsody, Photos and the front panel disc drive (CD or DVD only), so your high end Crestron
, Marantz RC9001
, Philips Pronto and UEI remote controls and multi-room distribution gadgets get along nice and friendly-like with the Escient hardware.
