VIA Technologies will bundle its FliteDeck system control package as a standard feature with all VIA Mainboards. The suite of software and firmware applications will enable users to have full system control through a Windows-based management suite. "The FliteDeck suite of applications is all about enriching the overall PC experience of VIA Mainboard users, as well as improving their system's performance and stability in the long run" commented Richard Brown, director of marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc. "FliteDeck will benefit PC enthusiasts and beginners alike, but with features such as MissionControl and SysProbe, the typically overworked office IT manager will benefit a great deal also," he added. FliteDeck comes with four advanced utilities, namely MissionControl, JetStream, FlashPort and SysProbe. While MissionControl supports remote system management capabilities and allows system administrators to monitor client PC hardware without having to leave their own desk, JetStream will allow users to tune their system's performance and optimise system stability without board-level jumper settings. FlashPort enables users to manage BIOS specification information, version backups, and flashing procedures in the Windows environment and on the fly, through an easy to use GUI interface. More importantly, users of the VIA mainboard will not have to open up their system case to check on a hardware component. The SysProbe application will help users obtain comprehensive system hardware and software information.
