NuVo Technologies has released the complete application programming interface (API) for its Wireless Audio System, allowing dealers to add instructions for the wireless network into their system-wide control programs. The intention is to give installers the greatest flexibility when integrating the NuVo Wireless Audio System into a larger home electronic system.
In a related development, NuVo's latest upgrade to its Wireless Player App for iOS and Android can now be used as an 'app within an app' within Crestron, AMX, Bitwise and other home apps that support launching embedded URL schemes. This feature lets users access the Wireless Audio Systems' control features without having to exit the wider control application.
"These measures will help make our Wireless Audio System the installer's first choice for wireless home audio," said David Rodarte, NuVo vice president and general manager. "In many cases, dealers need to be able to integrate multiple makers' products under a unified control system to deliver a fully customised solution that exceeds their customers' expectations. We know they've been anticipating this software release. Many were asking for an integration path, even before the product hit the market."
The API will enable dealers to set up their control programs to operate the functions of the Wireless Audio System, including source and zone selection, queue editing, volume control for any or all zones, treble and bass adjustment and other features. It will allow access to all the music content available to the NuVo esteem, including internet radio services, networked storage devices with digital audio files and Bluetooth linked content. The Wireless Audio System can play all popular digital audio formats as well as high-resolution (24-bit, 96KHz) recordings.
