In support of exclusive UK distributor Habitech, whole home audio specialist NuVo Technologies will showcase a variety of key innovations at this month’s CEDIA HTE.
Specific products on display will include Renovia, the easy-to-install whole home audio system that uses a home’s existing electrical wiring as the cabling infrastructure to deliver audio and metadata from multiple sources to multiple rooms. Based on HomePlug power line carrier (PLC) technology, Renovia utilises a single, centralised hub and a 50-watt independent zone amplifier for each intended listening area – making it ideal for homes where cutting into walls would be difficult or impossible.
On show in the UK for the first time will be the Music Port Elite (MPS4-E). Like NuVo’s earlier Music Port (MPS4), this unit can consolidate, organise, store and distribute PC-based audio content, while also streaming a variety of internet radio audio services. But the MPS4-E adds extra functionality, including ‘cloud synchronisation’, whereby users can access libraries of audio content from multiple locations. In addition, an IP control protocol allows pre-built Crestron, AMX and URC control integration, as well as the ability to place the system on a schedule for use as an alarm clock.
NuVo Technologies will also be displaying the D460 Digital Power Amplifier, a single-rack, 4 x 60 watt amplifier that offers a selectable ohm rating (4-8 ohm stable) and is said to provide an ‘exceptionally high’ operational efficiency rating.
Taking place at ExCeL London, CEDIA Home Technology Event 2011 runs from 28-30 June.
