Up-dates include an enhanced user interface making access to music easier and new personalisation capabilities enabling integrators to deliver a fine-tuned experience that can be tailored by the client.

On the music side, the platform now offers Savant Music 2.0, an all-new music server experience designed from the ground up.

Savant says this new software music suite includes improved reliability, speed, easier navigation, preset recall and song queues. Savant Music 2.0 also features redesigned app control screens, making it easier for users to navigate.

Also, brand new, an equalizer screen makes it simple to fine tune the sound on supported devices. Users will also find support for their streaming services such as Spotify, Pandora, TuneIn, Tidal and Deezer, as well as Airplay and PLEX support for locally stored music.

Savant Music 2.0 is available now and is built into Savant’s IP Audio device family.

Enhanced music access is a big feature of the up-grade

Enhanced App Experience

The Savant Pro 8 App for iOS has also been redesigned and the maker says the aim was to deliver a fresher, lighter design for entertainment services. Control screens in the app for services like cable, satellite and streaming video now include easy access to commonly used controls such as volume and mute.

New configurable button trays have been created to allow end users to quickly and easily modify button layouts in order to highlight favourite commands. More brand icons for smart TVs and entertainment devices are available as well. The 8.8 update also features a new compact home selector view for those users with multiple Savant homes, making control of multiple properties intuitive.

Savant has also enhanced its TrueImage interface to include white temperature settings for specific and popular colour temperatures from 2700K to 6000k. Additional new functionality encompasses favourite colours presets and colour combinations for easier recall as well as a superior colour selection tool for Savant Smart Bulb and Strips. Additionally, an slider interface allows users to select exact RGB values to achieve the right colour for each environment. TrueImage is now supported on the Savant Pro Remote, allowing the most intuitive visual lighting control to be accessed directly from the touch screen.
