g1 addresses wider audience12 February 2015
Said to leverage the capabilities of its new ELAN Control Platform, the ELAN g1 entertainment and control system is designed for media rooms, smaller projects, production builder packages and as a universal remote alternative, thus, says the company, bringing the benefits of the ELAN Control Platform to a wider audience.
The ELAN g1 System Controller is described as a versatile lower-point-of-entry controller and OSD extender for CI integrators and their customers. The controller is configured with three IR outputs, one IR input, one bidirectional RS-232 input, one sensor, one HDMI output (720p/1080p) and one audio output. Its built-in WiFi enables all of its functions to be IP controlled, and PoE enabled, and it is claimed to use less energy than conventional controllers.
The g1 features integration of up to 16 zones of security; two door locks; media that can control one AVR, 32 displays and an unlimited number of ELAN zones; as well as controls for lighting (24 devices and up to 24 custom g! keypads), climate (three stats), video (three IP cameras), irrigation (16 groups and 256 zones) – plus the ability to add an unlimited number of ELAN and Core Brands attachments.
“With the ELAN g1, Core Brands is offering dealers a full featured, yet affordably priced entertainment and control system,” said Joe Lautner, director of control at Core Brands.
