Trinnov Audio has announced that it has completed its line up of home automation drivers with the release of the fully certified Crestron Home driver by Janus Technology. This driver is available free of charge from both the Crestron and Janus Technology Dealer Portals.
Trinnov Audio, supplier of Immersive Audio processing for the last 20 years, says Crestron Home is fast being adopted by automation dealers and provides a simplified, but no less powerful, alternative to the full Crestron platform. Trinnov argues this broadens its appeal to dealers by providing a quicker programming platform that’s easier to modify making it ideally suited to single room solutions, such as home theatres, or as part of a whole home control solution.
This driver completes the lineup, for all the major control systems, with drivers available for:
● Crestron/Crestron Home
● Savant (in-house)
David Meyerowitz, Technical Sales Manager EU, Trinnov Audio elaborates, “We have been working with Janus Technology for a number of years now. We believe this is the best way to provide the most reliable and fully featured drivers for our dealers. Trinnov Audio are primarily a software company yes, but we concede that automation is a specialist field. Therefore we turn to Richard Caton and his team of engineers to provide the development and support for these drivers. They provide many drivers for many manufacturers so are ideally positioned to provide these services for us and allow us to use our precious R&D resources to concentrate on what we know best.”
Richard Caton, Owner Janus Technology, adds; “We were pleased to be chosen by Trinnov Audio to develop their latest integration for Crestron Home. The solution we developed provides a simple integration of Trinnov into the standard AVR interface in Crestron Home, and complements this with an extension driver, allowing the end user more bespoke control of the powerful advanced features available in the Altitude platform such as Preset and advanced Sound mode functionality. We look forward to working with Trinnov and supporting their dealers with their integrations, and extending the capabilities our drivers as the Altitude platform and Crestron Home evolve.”
Both companies underline that automation plays a key role in the final delivery of the home cinema. Having the ability to control many different operations seamlessly at the touch of a single button makes the whole user experience that much more enjoyable and convenient.
Trinnov adds that if an install company’s chosen control system is not in the list, the company has publicly available IR codes and API, free to download via the website for the creation of compatible drivers.
