Mozaex, a manufacturer of multi-room Blu-ray entertainment servers and peripherals, revealed that its new Apple iOS App for iPads and iPhones is now available for free on the Apple App store.
The company also announced that a new Control4 2-Way App and a Vantage 2-Way App will be released at the 2013 CEDIA EXPO, held in Denver from September 26-28 at the Colorado Convention Center, booth 1810.
“Mozaex continues to lead the industry in providing the most extensive support for control systems,” said Mozaex CEO, Douglas Kihm. “Mozaex now offers more control system interface drivers and Apps than any other Media Server vendor, including exclusive support for Vantage.”
The company boasts support for Crestron, AMX, Control4, ELAN, RTI, Apple, Vantage, Savant, URC, Bitwise, and NetStreams among other OEM custom-designed control systems.
“Ever since Apple blocked IP control of Apple TV, control systems have been unable to access iTunes movies,” Kihm continued. “Mozaex uniquely imports iTunes movies and music into its library so all compatible Mozaex control systems are now able to play iTunes movies and music from one common cover art library. You can also purchase iTunes media right from the Mozaex interface.”
The Mozaex Apple App runs on all iOS devices, including the iPad, iPad Mini, iPhone and iTouch.
The Mozaex Apple App provides a simple way to search and browse stored media collections by cover art and search terms. The Apple App controls the playback of your movies, music, photo slide shows and online media including iTunes movies and music, Pandora radio, and Netflix movies. The Apple is available for free on the Apple App store. Mozaex X704.1 OS or later is required to use the App.
The new Control4 driver upgrades the original V1.0 Mozaex Control4 driver with support for 2-Way control of movies and music, including iTunes movies and music.
The Control4 driver provides a simple way to search and browse stored media collections by cover art and search terms. The driver controls the playback of movies, music, photo slide shows and online media including iTunes movies and music, Pandora radio, and Netflix movies.
The Control4 App runs on all current Control4 Touch Panels and Remotes and will be available for free along with the entire Mozaex product line on the Control4 online store.
The new Vantage driver was co-developed with Vantage, and was demonstrated at the North X Northwest dealer event that was held at the Stage West in Toronto, Canada May 29, 2013. The Mozaex-Vantage App provides control of movies, music, photos, iTunes, Pandora, and Netflix, and is compatible with both legacy and the newly released Vantage Equinox Touch Panels.
“Mozaex is honored to have been exclusively selected by Vantage to co-develop a Vantage 2-Way Control Interface for our Entertainment Servers,” added Kihm. “With this new 2-Way Control App, Vantage dealers can now offer a completely integrated Vantage-Mozaex multi-room entertainment solution.”
“The Mozaex control system solution is unique in that it is the first Entertainment Server that allows you to purchase, download and play in multiple rooms, iTunes movies and music,” said Kihm. “By combining the quality of Blu-ray with the popularity and ease of iTunes, the Mozaex control system solution offers custom integrators a unique opportunity to expand sales while dramatically improving their clients’ entertainment value and experience."
Kihm continued, “iTunes has revolutionized convenient and affordable online movies and music yet the dealer has not yet been able to fully capitalize on this profitable revolution until now. At a similar price of a music-only server, custom integrators can now offer an iTunes movie and music server plus a full featured Blu-ray movie server with touch panel 2-way control.”
When only music playback is required in a zone, Mozaex offers the Sonnet wireless music-only player. Sonnet plays loaded CDs, iTunes, imported music files and Pandora radio. Sonnet may be controlled by any of the 2-Way Mozaex control systems.
