New App Feature Enables Direct Streaming From iOS Devices to Nuvo Player Portfolio
HEBRON, Ky. – March 19, 2014 – Nuvo Technologies has released a new iOS feature for its Player Portfolio app that allows users to stream content stored on any iOS device directly to the Nuvo system. The Nuvo Player App version 1.8.1, available now for download, enables Direct Stream capability for i-devices using iOS 6 or later and supports track selection, volume control, and more.
“Direct Stream is an important new feature for our Nuvo Player Portfolio,” Fritz Werder, VP and General Manager of Legrand’s Nuvo and On-Q product lines. “Because the app connects to your Wi-Fi network, anyone can stream directly from their iPhone or iPad even if they don’t have Bluetooth capability on their Nuvo player. So now, in addition to playing music from supported Internet streaming services and content stored on their network, users can also access content residing locally on their iOS device.”
According to Werder, the audio files residing on the device itself are fully accessible provided both the device and the Nuvo Player Portfolio system are on the same network. When connected, each iPhone or iPad becomes another audio source, the content of which is accessible as a library within the app and can be listened to by any zone on the system. As many as 16 streams can be accessed simultaneously, and the app provides controls for play/pause, next song/last song, and shuffle mode.
The app update featuring Direct Stream will work on all iPhones and iPads running iOS 6 or later; a firmware update (version 1.8.1) to the Player Portfolio is also required. When the updated app is opened, it will automatically prompt users to complete the system update and also offer a brief tutorial on using iOS direct stream.
