Control4 Corporation today announced that Pandora, Deezer and TIDAL are now automatically available as part of Control4 HC-250 and HC-800 systems, without requiring additional streaming devices or software. With Control4’s latest software release, OS 2.8, Control4 natively integrates Pandora. Control4 also welcomed two more audio-streaming services to its lineup: Deezer, a worldwide digital music streaming service available in over 180 countries; and TIDAL, a subscription service offering high-fidelity, CD sound quality streaming in over 31 countries. These new streaming services, together with streaming services from Rhapsody, Napster and TuneIn that were already native to Control4, provide homeowners with a broad choice of on-demand entertainment as part of their Control4 system.
Multiple “favorite” stations can be streamed simultaneously in different rooms throughout the house. Native support for Airplay-enabled devices with ShairBridge, which means anyone can share and stream his or her music from iOS smart phones and tablets, or computers running iTunes, to different zones throughout the home.
