Calling all custom installers! Microsoft Corp. is searching for the custom installation industry’s innovators to submit distinctive installations for the Windows® Media Center Ultimate Install Contest. The first of its kind, this design contest seeks to recognize the residential custom electronics systems installation business that best utilizes Windows Media Center in a custom installation solution.

Increasingly, Windows Media Center is being implemented in solutions for the custom channel, so Microsoft is challenging industry professionals to present their most unique and creative installations using the technology. The contest was announced at CEDIA EXPO 2007.

“This is a chance not only to show the amazing things custom installers can do with the Windows Media Center platform, but also to have some fun,” said Scott Evans, group manager in the Entertainment and Devices eHome Division at Microsoft. “Our partners in the custom channel are taking our software and building incredible digital home solutions, so we decided now was a great time to give them the chance to showcase their best work and compete to be recognized as the ultimate MCE installer.”
