Indianapolis - ClearOne, a global communications and entertainment solutions company, debuted for the residential market six new products for its StreamNet IP-based A/V distribution and control system.
Featured products include a Cloud-based music-management
system that provides global access to a user's complete music library located
anywhere on the network; a new compact, high-power 2x150 watt-per-channel
amplifier; and a new digital tuner, compatible with two StreamNet controller/amplifiers
with built-in web servers to tune in and play MP3 Internet radio streams,
The company will also debut three A/V products to the residential market.
Anthology, an IP-based network music system is designed to simplify access to music on PCs, iTunes, Internet radio, remote servers and Cloud services. Anthology Cloud Sync automatically backs up content to a private Internet data locker for multi-location synchronization and remote access to media from computers and mobile devices, the company said.
The SLX300 is an in-wall or rack-mounted digital decoder amplifier that delivers two audio channels up to 150 watts each. The SLX300 is the most powerful two-channel amplifier in the DigiLinx line, and addresses a long-standing need for a high-power two-channel amp in listening room and home theater applications, ClearOne said.
The third new product being introduced is a built-in web server that allows tuning and streaming of more than 10,000 MP3 Internet radio stations located around the world. This new feature, which is compatible with the TLA250 and SL251 IP audio decoder and amplifiers, allows adding MP3 Internet radio as a local source to any zone in a DigiLinX system.
The three products making their residential market debut at the CEDIA Expo are the MLVA9500, an IP encoder for A/V content from an HDMI source; the VL9300, an IP decoder for A/V content going to an HDTV or other A/V component; and Blueport, a wireless digital audio gateway that allows an iPhone, Android smartphone, or other Bluetooth device to be a wireless audio source for one zone or multiple zones in a home system.
"These components add essential depth and breadth to the DigiLinx product line," said Buzz Goddard, worldwide residential sales VP. "In particular, the residential market launch of our HDCP compliant IP encoder and decoder for HDMI is a major milestone. The other products add important features, like streaming audio from Bluetooth devices or Internet radio, which keep DigiLinX at the cutting edge of what our customers expect from our home systems."
All products featured at the CEDIA Expo are either available now or will begin shipping within the next two months.
