Savant just announced the addition of new products and features included in the 8.7 software and hardware update.
TrueImage for Savant Pro: Savant has released a new Savant Pro 8 App on the iOS App Store that includes support for TrueImage. TrueImage leverages Savant’s patented virtual lighting concepts allowing users to experience virtual lights in any room on their mobile devices. Users can easily change dimming levels and RGB colors simply by tapping the virtual light. Savant claims TrueImage greatly reduces lighting complexity and takes the home automation user experience to the highest level. The intuitiveness and cool factor of Savant TrueImage will help integrators generate excitement during the sales process and deliver an experience their clients will adore. Users and/or integrators can use a mobile device to photograph the light, press the button and TrueImage software takes care of the rest.
Color Smart Bulbs and LED Strips: Savant is also introducing a new line of colored smart bulbs and LED light strips. These products are controlled with TrueImage in the Savant 8 App for iOS, are available from Savant Authorized Integrators and are far less costly than the colored lighting solutions currently available in the custom technology market.
Savant IP Video: Savant has begun shipping their new IP Video products, including a 4K video over IP switching platform. The new switching platform is spec’d to deliver 4K/60 4:4:4 HDR video (8-bit color) distribution over IP.
Savant IP Audio: Savant’s IP Audio lineup is expanding to become the ultimate home entertainment product family, including the Savant IP Audio 50 (simply a renamed version of Savant’s highly successful Pro Audio 4), the company’s first scalable, wired, all-in-one music solution. Brand new to the lineup is the Savant IP Audio 125, a higher wattage amplifier/audio distribution system. The IP Audio 125 delivers all the functionality of the IP Audio 50, but with 125 watts per channel for dynamic audio reproduction; ample power to drive clear sound into large spaces such as outdoor entertainment. The IP Audio 125 also includes additional control ports for added installation flexibility in nearly any imaginable application.
Savant Pro Remote Multi-Room: The Savant Pro Remote is now available with multi-zone control. The new Savant Multi-Room remote is free to roam and allows switching from room to room for true whole home control from a single remote. Connecting directly to Wi-Fi, this remote does not use Bluetooth and is not tethered to a single remote base, any base can be used for charging.
Savant Architectural Speakers: Available in options for traditional stereo pairs as well as single stereo twin-tweeter solutions, these new 6.5-inch and 8-inch architectural speakers bring Artison sound quality to music listening areas either in-wall or in-ceiling.
Savant Touch 8 Tabletop: Savant has introduced aluminum table top stands for the Savant Touch 8 control screen. This stand securely holds the Savant Touch 8 for use with the same POE connection used for in-wall applications.
