ELAN Home Systems has announced that its g! system now supports a full 5,800 simplified Mandarin Chinese character set.
According to ELAN Home System president Paul Starkey, the company will demonstrate the g! system’s Chinese language support across all of its TS touch screens, HR2 remote control, computer interface, on-screen display, iPhone and iPad interfaces at the CEDIA Shanghai Expo, taking place November 23-25 at the Shanghai International Convention Centre, at the International CES 2012 at The AVC Group’s Hospitality Suite 2876 in the East Tower of the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel, as well as at ISE 2012 at Stand 1N73 at The Amsterdam RAI in The Netherlands.
“The Chinese market is the second fastest growing market for g! systems outside of the United States,” Starkey said, “and it is about time that the g! system more completely meets the lifestyle needs of our valued residential and commercial Chinese customers. By featuring a full 5,800 simplified Mandarin Chinese character set, we will be able to meet more of our customers’ needs in the region. At the same time, we can now also support metadata from iPod and MP3 sources.”
With the addition of Chinese, the ELAN g! entertainment and control system now supports a total of seven languages: English, Chinese, Russian, Spanish, French, Italian, and Swedish.
