New products on display at the American International Toy Fair, held in N
AudioControl came to the CEDIA Expo with its first A/V receiver (AVR), a 7x120-watt model with second- and third-zone A/V outputs, networked audio streaming, embedded decoders for all Blu-ray surround formats, and 120 inputs and outputs.
AudioControl's product selection includes home theater processors, distributed audio amplifiers, signal processors and audio analysis products.
The Concert AVR-1, due in the fourth quarter, will also be among the first of a handful of A/V receivers with Dolby Volume, a technology that maintains a consistent volume level when audio and video sources are switched, TV channels are changed, and a TV or video program transitions to a louder commercial or to a softer scene.
Pricing was unavailable.
The receiver/controller accepts signals from up to five discrete 1080p HDMI inputs and features dual HDMI outputs assignable by the integrator to allow for priority switching via the display device. All video inputs are up-converted and scaled to HDMI 1080p.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
