Austin, TX–NetStreams and Polk Audio will hold courses at CEDIAs 2005 Regional Education event at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Foster City (April 15-19, 2005), to teach attendees about the capabilities of IP-based audio.
Participants will learn about NetStream’s DigiLinX system and gain CEDIA Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for completing the course. NetStreams is also teaming up with Polk Audio to show the benefits of integrating Polks IP-addressable loudspeaker with DigiLinX. The LC265ip is the worlds first in-wall speaker that can be controlled via an IP system.
“NetStreams CEDIA Regional courses not only show and prepare attendees on how to take advantage of DigiLinXs capabilities, but award CEDIA CEUs, so its a win-win opportunity,” said Petro Shimonishi, vice president of marketing at NetStreams. “Our research projects that within three years, 80 percent of all multi-room audio systems installed will be IP-based. The DigiLinX system is the first and only in the market that harnesses IP architecture to allow installers to build audio systems with studio-quality sound, virtually unlimited number of sources, and multiple rooms.”
“We love the DigiLinX system and see it as a significant step forward in distributed audio performance and consumer convenience,” said Polk product line manager, Al Baron. “We specifically designed our upcoming LC265ip tri-amplified IP-addressable loudspeaker to take full advantage of the performance and control capabilities of the DigiLinX system to bring consumers sound quality and convenience that simply cannot be matched by any other combination of audio distribution network and in-wall loudspeaker.”
The NetSTreams/Polk training team will also be present at the next CEDIA Regional Training, which is scheduled to be held in Stamford, CT, from May 14 to 18, 2005.
