Josh.ai continues expanding the power of artificial intelligence in the home by partnering with Barco. The partnership will enable homeowners to use Barco’s high-end residential projectors in tandem with Josh.ai’s voice and app interfaces.
After connecting to the network, Josh.ai auto-populates the Medea, Balder, Loki, and new Bragi Cinemascope projector models. There is no limit to the number of projectors in one home, which increases the possibilities for custom installers. The configuration of HDMI inputs is visibly diagrammed in the Josh.ai portal, resulting in a seamless setup process. Once the system is completed, homeowners are able to walk from room to room and naturally ask their Josh Micro to turn on any desired content.
Users can toggle the power of their theater and ask to switch between video sources with natural language-oriented commands like, “turn on the projector” and “watch awesome surfing videos on YouTube.” Compound commands like, “watch Breaking Bad season 3 episode 4, draw the blinds, and dim the lights to 10 percent” will also execute for all of the devices assigned to the room the homeowner is in.
In addition to the convenience of voice automation, clients can rest assured that Josh.ai is committed to providing an elegant voice experience without selling or leveraging any data for marketing purposes.
Barco and Josh.ai will be demonstrating the practical application of the projector integration at upcoming events.
