ELAN Home Systems will celebrate the first anniversary of its ELAN g! entertainment and control system at CEDIA 2011 with the full market introduction of an expanded series of new home controllers, new Version 5.2 software, and a 10-inch touch screen, as well as an opening day birthday party at Booth #3325 that the company says will feature a major surprise for industry attendees.
At CEDIA 2011, ELAN plans to expand its g! entertainment and control system with a series of new home controllers, new Version 5.2 software, and a 10-inch touch screen.
“At CEDIA 2011 we will further strengthen the system’s appeal with the full market introduction of two new home controllers, the next generation of our g! software (Version 5.2) and a new 10-inch touch screen," said ELAN Home Systems president, Paul Starkey. "We will also celebrate the market success of the HR2 remote control unit, which has been strongly embraced by dealers, who praise it for its ease of integration with the entire g! system as well as for its remarkable ease of use.”
In addition, according to Starkey, ELAN will be hosting a birthday party on the opening day of the show at its booth and he is guaranteeing a big surprise.
“We want everyone to be able to have their cake and eat it too,” he said. “So the booth is the best place to celebrate the success of this remarkable entertainment and control system.”
The party is scheduled to take place at 5:00 p.m. on September 8 at The AVC Group booth #3325.
The HC4 and HC8 controllers round out the family of g! controllers. They are the wall and structured wire can-mounted solutions for a dealer’s g! installations. The new controllers are built for easy installation in the ELAN Structured Wire cans. The HC4 is a 4 port compact controller with onboard streaming audio capability, video out for an On-Screen-Display, IR, relays, and sense inputs.
The HC8 is a full-featured controller with 8 serial ports, 2 streams of digital audio and includes IR, relays and sense inputs. The HC8 includes a 500 GB hard drive to store security video, music, and photos.
Supporting all g! applications and interfaces, and incorporating the company’s latest Version 5.2 g! software, the new ELAN HC4 and HC8 controllers are designed for both residential and commercial installation environments where control and security are high priorities, as well as for second homes where security is of paramount concern to homeowners.
