Atlona has partnered with Fusion Research to allow for compatibility of Fusion Research music servers on Atlona Velocity AV control systems. Fusion Research specializes in music streaming solutions for residential AV systems, supporting most streaming services and personal collections for multiroom audio within its music servers. The company also offers commercial solutions that are compatible with SoundMachine, a streaming service that provides access to fully licensed music (ASCAP, BMI, SOCAN, etc.) that is required for use in most public spaces.
With Velocity control, staff can browse music libraries, select streaming channels and control volume across multiple zones using Velocity touch panels. The same touch panels also support rich data and content display, showing artist, song, album artwork, channel selection and other stream metadata in real-time.
The Atlona and Fusion Research partnership claims several benefits for systems integrators. The companies say the integration makes it simpler for integrators to add background music hardware and delivery services to their commercial AV projects, with assurance that the service complies with Public Performance Rights. The partnership also adds Fusion Research products to Velocity’s supported devices database, which simplifies configuration for a system deployment.
