New Two-Way Drivers Facilitate Seamless Integration of Fusion's Media Servers Into RTI Control Systems for an Unmatched User Experience
SHAKOPEE, Minn. — April 3, 2014 — Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) has announced the availability of new two-way drivers for Fusion Research's popular EPIC movie server platform and Ovation music streamers. Developed by Fusion, the new drivers make it simple for integrators to incorporate the media servers into RTI's cost-effective control systems, providing their clients with powerful control and enhanced media navigation for the ultimate user experience.
Ovation streamers provide simple music distribution throughout the home with support for up to four sources in one box and up to 20 discrete sources with Ovation wireless players. Providing a complete music entertainment hub, the Ovation line supports over two dozen streaming apps, including Pandora, Spotify, SiriusXM, MOG, and Slacker; thousands of Internet radio stations; full iTunes® synchronization; and CD ripping for personal collections.
Fusion's EPIC movie servers allow users to rip, digitally store, and conveniently access their entire DVD and Blu-ray collection from a single-unit solution. Each server features a built-in single-zone player, and up to six additional Fusion players can be added to expand the system to independent zones throughout the home. A commercial server is also available for expansion to up to 40 zones.
With the new Fusion two-way drivers, users have an intuitive control interface that allows them to browse through their media easily, while viewing cover art as well as song and movie metadata, right on their RTI controller. The control experience is further enhanced with the RTI control system, which allows the end user to select the location they want to play music and movies in, control the volume, and make adjustments to any other electronic systems in the home or commercial facility — all without having to switch user interfaces.
"We've been receiving requests for tighter integration with the RTI control platform for some time," said Joseph Storm, CEO of Fusion Research. "By working directly with the RTI team, we've answered the call with drivers that offer installers seamless integration of our media servers into RTI systems, while providing their customers with an unparalleled control experience."
"Media servers are becoming an integral part of today's home entertainment system, and we are working hard to expand our offering of two-way drivers to help our dealers meet this demand," said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. "We are very excited to add Fusion's popular line of products to our growing list, making it easier than ever for installers to put their customers' complete entertainment world right at their fingertips."
The Fusion drivers are compatible with all XP control processors. Using the latest version of RTI's award-winning Integration Designer® programming software, installers can easily provide their clients with a completely customized, intuitive control experience, in a drag-and-drop programming environment.
The drivers for the EPIC movie server platform and Ovation music streamers are available now on the Fusion website at http://fusionrd.com/rti.html and on RTI's website at www.rticorp.com in the Driver Store.
