New Module Teams Nuvo Wireless Audio Up With BitWise Controls
New module permits control of the high-fidelity Nuvo Wireless Audio System through all BitWise devices.
Denver, Colorado – Colorado Convention Center, Booth #231 – September 25, 2013 – Nuvo Technologies has announced the release of a module for operating their wireless audio solution through BitWise controllers, now available to integrators through the BitWise Dealer Store.
Scanning a network to detect Nuvo Wireless components, the module enables users to control any zone to adjust volume, select sources, and manage queues, all from a BitWise Room Remote or a BitWise Touch app for smartphones and tablets. Additionally, with the BitWise BC1 and BC2 controllers, advanced functionality is possible through system macros, allowing installers to determine preset volumes, create party buttons, and even include a “Goodnight” macro to turn off all zones.
“We’re very excited about this release. The Nuvo Wireless Audio System is a great solution for BitWise dealers because it’s easy to install, it sounds great, and it offers comprehensive integration capabilities. Our module provides full two-way control and media browsing of online music services and local content. It even discovers all of the Nuvo zones automatically,” said Mark Buster, co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of BitWise. “It takes less than a minute to add this module to a project, and installers have the option to customize the user interface however they like.”
NuVo’s Marketing Manager, Desiree Webster, added, “Nuvo’s wireless system was designed to include incredibly aesthetic and intuitive user control. This is our most advanced control protocol ever, one that maintains its reaction speed and simple navigation even through third-party plug-ins."
The Nuvo Wireless Audio System is a high-fidelity wireless solution designed specifically for custom installers. Comprised of multiple interchangeable player options, the system is both scalable and flexible, allowing for wireless and wired configurations, and even including a hardwired professional series player option, which powers three zones from a single, rack-mountable unit. The system also includes built-in source variety through streaming Internet Radio and networked content, on top of input access for analog and USB devices.
