Control4 has introduced its new Wireless Music Bridge, a solution designed to make whole-home music streaming easier for everyone in the house.
The new product enables you, your family and guests to instantly and wirelessly connect smartphones, tablets or computers—and all the music stored on those devices—to a Control4 system, allowing everyone in the house to enjoy their personal music collection through the home's audio system.
With the Control4 Wireless Music Bridge, if you can listen to it from your smartphone, tablet or computer, you can listen to it in any audio zone in your home. In addition to stored music libraries, the new Control4 Wireless Music Bridge also provides a convenient path for Control4 customers to connect to streaming music services such as Pandora, Spotify, or Rdio from their personal smart devices- all while preserving full phone and smart device browsing and app capabilities.
Combining Ethernet, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity technologies into a single product, the Control4 Wireless Music Bridge allows nearly every smart device to bridge music, podcasts, news, sports and audio books into the Control4 system, while providing full support for streaming AirPlay, Bluetooth and DLNA.
Add additional Wireless Music Bridges to your Control4 system, and every member of the household can have his or her own direct wireless portal to every zone of audio in the home. Minimize your music app, and the artwork and metadata still streams directly into the Control4 environment for display within the Control4 "Now Playing" interface on touch panels, TV screens, or your smart device.
Control4 has also released their newest software Control4 OS 2.5 to power the new Wireless Music Bridge, along with the company's new next generation of Wireless and Panelized Lighting Control solutions. OS 2.5 also includes new tools to assist dealers with day-to-day maintenance and deployments, making the overall Control4 installation experience more efficient and convenient.
