ELAN Home Systems revealed that its ELAN g! 6.0 software now includes full two-way integration with Fusion Research’s Ovation audio streamers, providing owners with access to more streaming music services.
With this addition, ELAN g! owners can now enjoy their favorite music from an expanded selection of digital sources including Slacker, MOG, TuneIn, LIVE365, last.fm, Pandora, SiriusXM, CBC-40, CBS Radio, BBC, SKY.fm, AccuRadio and more. Fusion Research’s Ovation audio streamers also simplify access to music stored on PCs and iTunes libraries by providing digital streaming content and local content via a single input connection.
According to CORE Brands control category director Joe Lautner, giving end-users more music choices will help dealers sell more g! systems.
“Our new integration with Fusion’s Ovation streamers is further proof that the ELAN g! system is the industry’s most expandable and capable home control solution,” Lautner said. “We will continue to integrate with the industry’s best products and biggest brands to give end-users the best home entertainment and control experience and provide dealers with the features and capabilities their clients demand.”
Another strength of the Fusion Ovation products is their ability to deliver 3-5 discrete streams of music from one box. This simplifies the installation and maintenance of consumers’ systems while giving them more options in the home than the traditional consumer-oriented plastic box streaming products.
Amplifying that point, ELAN brand manager Robert Ridenour added, “Consumers today have more media options than ever with new delivery services popping up at breathtaking speed, and ELAN is dedicated to providing all of our customers with the latest media content that they demand to make their home entertainment options as versatile as they are accustomed to on their mobile devices.”
Integrating g! with Fusion Research’s Ovation series music streamers is simple and efficient. All the dealer needs to do is install the Ovation streamer according to its simple instructions, then add the streamer in the g! media tab. The g! system discovers the Ovation streamer on its own and the user interface screens are automatically built.
As an incentive for dealers to promote the Fusion Ovation audio streamers to their clients, ELAN has announced that dealers who purchase a deeply discounted Fusion demo system will receive a coupon for a significant savings on a future Fusion Research purchase. ELAN dealers can download the Fusion Research demo order form from the ELAN dealer website.
