MediaPortal Showcased at BigDesign 2011

For the first time in history MediaPortal will be on display at the BigDesign Conference 2011 - July 15-16, Crowne Plaza Hotel, Addison Texas.

If you are anywhere near Dallas Texas, drop by the show and check us out.  MediaPortal 1.2.0 beta will be displayed in a double booth on ten different screens ranging from 32" LCD TVs to 10" e-pads using aMPdroid. A variety of skins will be available, including our new Default skin and several of the latest skins for 1.2.0.  In addition to the promotional video for MediaPortal 1.2.0,  Lyfesaver74 has prepared ten short videos, including an introductory video by infinite.loop, that demonstrate different skins and features of both MediaPortal and many plugins.

The idea was first proposed by Lyfesaver74 only a month ago in the forum thread: Getting the word out.... MORE PR!!!!!.  Gratefully Lyfesaver74 was willing to spearhead the project. Through his initiative and hard work we have begun to develop a promotional package that anyone can use at trade shows, workshops or conventions.  A new brochure has already been completed.  Banners, flyers, stickers and other promotional materials are already in development and will soon be added to our Promotional Materials web page.

A live video feed will be available for the show, from 1-10PM GMT on both Friday, July 15 and Saturday, July 16.  If you are interested in accessing the feed, contact Lyfesaver74 via forum private message.   For further details, visit Lyfesaver74's MP PR website. Team members who register there will automatically have access to the live feed.

We wish to offer our utmost appreciation to Lyfesaver74, as well as all the community who have pitched in with many great suggestions, modifications to skins and plugins to improve the demos, as well as technical support.

This is a first step in our plans for increasing the visibility of MediaPortal worldwide, especially in North America. The best way to achieve this is with a team of people helping out in any way they can.  So, if you have any skills or facilities for producing or printing promotional materials, or just wish to participate in promoting MediaPortal or providing a demo at a trade show or conference near you,  please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Time and expertise are just as valuable as donations.

Lyfesaver74 will be reporting his findings and experiences at the show in an upcoming Blog, so stay tuned.

Support MediaPortal!

The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.

Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
