Legrand has begun shipping its Nuvo P30 touchscreen system controller, a fully functioning seven-inch Android tablet housed in a custom enclosure that runs the existing Player Portfolio app. It gives users the choice between handheld control via the apps for Android and iOS or in-wall use to suit all music listening experiences.
In addition to being the access point for system control, the touchscreen (NV-P30-BK) will run popular streaming services and apps, including Spotify, Pandora, and more. Users can also access and play music stored on networked devices in the home through the Player Portfolio system.
“The Nuvo P30 touchscreen and Player Portfolio app offer intuitive easy in-wall control of the whole home audio system. If you’re simply adjusting the source and volume for a relaxing night at home, or playing DJ for a gathering of friends and family, it’s right there,” said Walt Zerbe, Legrand’s product manager for audio. “The in-wall control option is especially convenient for muting or lowering volume quickly when there's a knock at the door, or allowing immediate access to preset source favorites without searching for a phone or tablet.”
The 7-inch touchpanel has a high-contrast 1024x600 IPS capacitive screen and a design that blends easily into a room’s décor. The included mounting plate makes installation simple. Its connection to the Player Portfolio system is made via a single RJ45 802.11af PoE connection.
The Nuvo P30 touchscreen will be available in March for MSRP $349.
