Autonomic Announces Control System Interface Updates

autonomic_logoArmonk, NY. September 24, 2013—Autonomic, known for supplying the custom electronics industry with award-winning high performance cloud-based media solutions, will be demonstrating new features of the Mirage Audio System (MAS) at the 2013 CEDIA Booth 3825 in Denver, CO September 26-28. In addition to new features and functionality available from Autonomic, here is what’s new with our control partners:

AMX: Autonomic’s newest AMX module delivers compatibility for the latest Mirage Media Server firmware and enhances the AMX integration experience.

BitWise Controls: BitWise Controls has introduced the Autonomic Mirage Module now available to authorized BitWise dealers for download. This new module makes it easier and more efficient for installers to integrate Mirage Media Servers’ browsing and playback control to the BitWise user interface. The Autonomic Mirage Module enables users to browse all of the server’s content from the BitWise interface, including supported internet radio services. A video demonstration of the new Autonomic Mirage Module is available HERE.

Compass Control: Engineers at Compass Control profiled the Mirage Media Server (MMS) and completed a bi-directional driver that enables seamless integration of the MMS in the Compass Control environment while greatly reducing the installation time for integrators.

Control4: The Extra Vegetables Control4 Module for the Mirage Media Server has received minor updates. Extra Vegetables has created a Mirage Amplifier Module, enabling Control4 system users to integrate up to 24 zones of distributed audio with the Mirage Audio System in place.

Crestron Smart Graphics™ Compatibility: “The integration of Mirage Media Servers with Crestron high-resolution touch screens (supporting Smart Graphics) provides users with services they’ve been asking for, such as native connectivity with Crestron technology and a dynamically rich user interface,” said Steve Samson, Crestron Director of Business Development. “Mirage Media Server users can now enjoy the same user experience that they’re used to on their mobile devices, from their Crestron touch screen. This plug-and-play compatibility means less programming and more music.”

RTI: Autonomic has created a new module for RTI interface from the ground up, delivering the same feature set as the previous module with enhanced stability and speed.

“The Mirage Audio System offers a unique value proposition to integrators by delivering seamless interoperability with the most popular control formats,” explained Autonomic CEO Michael de Nigris. “Our objective is to provide the highest quality whole-house music solution for systems of all sizes while enhancing profitability and efficiency for our dealer installers in the field,” de Nigris concluded.

MSRP for the 4-zone Mirage Audio System MAS-4 is $4945 and MSRP for the 8-zone MAS-8 is $8350 All Mirage Audio Systems are now shipping to authorized dealers.
