RTI has announced the availability of a two-way driver for Fusion Research’s Play-Fi music server. The new driver, developed by Fusion, allows integrators to incorporate their Play-Fi server into RTI automation systems.
The Play-Fi server combines Fusion’s Ovation music server with DTS’ open platform Play-Fi technology. Specifically designed for the custom-integration channel, the server acts as a bridge between automation systems and third-party amplifiers and speakers utilizing Play-Fi technology. It enables music distribution, either wired or wirelessly, throughout the home, supporting up to six sources — three physical and three Play-Fi — in one box. Designed to provide a complete music entertainment hub, Play-Fi supports over a dozen streaming apps, including Pandora, Spotify, Tidal and Tune-In plus thousands of Internet radio stations as well as full iTunes backup and synchronization.
With the new Fusion Play-Fi two-way driver, users have a control interface that allows them to browse through their music options, while viewing cover art and song metadata right on their RTI controller. In addition, users can select the location they want to play music in, control the volume, and make adjustments to any other integrated electronic systems in their home or commercial facility — all from a single RTI user interface.
The Fusion Play-Fi music server driver is shipping and all the specs are here.
