In January, the integration of LILIN IP products with Control4 systems was launched. LILIN now announces that users of Control4 systems have full integration of the NVR Touch using the Control4® remote.
The release of the free, Extra Vegetables driver means users can now fully control the NVR Touch from the same platform that controls other appliances in their home or business, all with their Control4remote. Control4ʼs SDDP automatically identifies and loads the correct driver for the NVR Touch, making installation virtually instantaneous. After highlighting and double-clicking the room in which the platform is installed, the driver instantly configures itself into the system. After making any optional settings, the HDMI output simply connects in Composer.
The groundbreaking NVR Touch allows users to benefit from a standalone Network Video Recording solution, meaning Control4 users can view 16 channels of HD (1080P) IP video simultaneously at 25FPS via HDMI. This means users can take advantage of the fantastic real time images of LILIN cameras from the screens around the home, including various moving matrix controls.
With the use of the LILIN UI, users can also manage the numerous features of the NVR, including providing control of live images and accessing all of the NVR menus and playback. A simple date and time search menu allows users to browse through the recordings on the NVR, which can then be exported to DVD or USB if required.
If cameras connected to the NVR have PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) capabilities, then users can control these from the driver. By simply selecting the camera full screen, then using the UI, images can be adjusted using the navigation keys. Users can also recall any of the camera presets at the simple press of a button.
Control4 and Extra Vegetables will both be showcasing the new driver at the 2013 CEDIA Expo in Denver, Colorado, September 25th – 28th. Control4, along with LILIN, can be found at Stand #608, with Extra Vegetables at Stand #644. The free driver is available now to download by visiting www.extravegetables.com or by using the SDDP to install the driver.
