One Voice's Media Center Communicator can control up to five Xbox 360 game consoles connected to a Windows Vista computer. This exciting feature enables users to easily share digital media throughout the home to an Xbox 360 game console using simple and powerful voice commands. Pricing and availability to be announced.

"Imagine walking into your entertainment room and simply saying, for example; Xbox Play U2 or Xbox Play American Idol, and your Xbox immediately starts playing that content," said Dean Weber, president and CEO at One Voice Technologies. "With our technology you can control both the main Windows Vista computer along with controlling up to five Xbox 360 game consoles using voice commands. We allow the user to uniquely name each Xbox 360 in their home; for instance one might be named Family Room while another named Game Room. This allows the user to say – Family Room Play U2 or Game Room Play CSI Miami. This creates the ultimate digital home experience combining the power of today's PC's running Windows Vista with the flexibility of having up to five Xbox 360 game consoles in your home offering a complete networked digital media distribution and gaming environment. Now with the launch of Windows Vista and millions of existing Xbox 360 game consoles already in the market, this creates a very large opportunity for our company."
