Installers can grab the new driver from the Control4 Composer, giving their clients a whole host of new features including automatic source selection, which assigns the first available output of the Mirage Media Server once a room and playback content have been chosen, as well as one button access to popular streaming services and all available local content.
Alongside these new features, the latest Control4 driver now ships with functionality designed to make guests connecting their iOS devices to the system even easier via AirPlay.
Users will see a list of zone names that they can connect to, eliminating the need for a dedicated AirPlay stream button on the Control4 interface.
The Mirage Media Server will automatically activate the zone and connect to the guest’s AirPlay source.
Clients will now also benefit from the Autonomic-exclusive TuneBridge feature, which is designed to make it easier to do a full album/artist/track search dependent on what is playing.
The new interface should also make it simpler for everyone to access playlists and favourites, add tracks to the current queue or save them to an existing playlist.
With the Mirage Digital Amplifier driver (available separately on the Autonomic website), the Mirage Audio System packages will integrate fully with the Control4 platform, delivering control of up to 96 high-power audio zones throughout the home.
“Our latest Control 4 driver is the result of a deep collaboration between Autonomic and Control4 engineering to ensure that our products interoperate seamlessly and provide a high degree of joy and convenience to our collective customers,” says Michael de Nigris, Autonomic CEO.
“Dealers will appreciate that all of our most popular features, such as TuneBridge and music services such as Spotify, TIDAL and others are represented and easier than ever to access from within the Control4 environment.”
Autonomic audio systems are distributed by Invision UK.
