The world's biggest TV with an iPad controller

Dutch technology firm Van Berge Henegouwen Installaties have developed an iPad control system for guests aboard superyachts. The company has successfully equipped 12 areas on an 85-metre superyacht with the iPads.

With its intuitive and personalised look and feel and high-speed operation, the iPad perfectly suits on-board guests, for whom ease of use and integration are key issues.

VBH has taken iPad integration beyond standard apps into a control device for the on-board audio-visual systems, room environment settings and other systems. The iPad solution also delivers several other yacht-related entertainment and business functionalities.

After close collaboration with engineers from Crestron, the iPad can now communicate with the on-board Crestron system. This provides the iPad with the same functionalities as a Crestron panel, with all additional benefits of an iPad.

At the recent Monaco Yacht Show the company was also showing a Panasonic 152-inch high-resolution display, a 50-inch 3D plasma screen, and a touch-screen interactive video wall where you could play with and feed the digital fish!
