Savant announces new products in the Savant IP product line
Savant, which is distributed by Avation, has announced the addition of new products in the Savant IP product line that give custom installers new options to deliver superior video and audio quality throughout the home.
Savant has begun shipping its new IP video products, an ultra-high-performance pixel-perfect 4K video over IP switching platform that delivers 4K/60 4:4:4 HDR video distribution over IP with zero frame latency. The platform leverages Savant’s rich history in telecom to deliver an advanced high-speed scalable IP entertainment solution.
A centralised 10GbE switch enables high-bandwidth Ethernet connectivity throughout the project, with scalability only limited by the size of the network, allowing installations from two to 128 zones or more. New products in the line-up include the Savant IP Video 4 and 8 input video transmitters and Savant IP Video output receivers, which are available with either fibre or copper as an option.
Savant’s IP audio line-up is also expanding to include the Savant IP Audio 50 (simply a renamed version of Savant’s Pro Audio 4), the company’s first scalable, wired, all-in-one music solution. Another addition is the Savant IP Audio 125, a higher wattage amplifier/audio distribution system that delivers all the functionality of the IP Audio 50 but with 125W per channel for dynamic audio reproduction. The IP Audio 125 also includes additional control ports for added installation flexibility in nearly any imaginable application.
The Savant IP Audio line-up features a range of preamp-level audio inputs and outputs, including the new Savant IP Audio 8 output and IP Audio 7 input modules. These allow audio to be distributed to and from remote areas of a property without the need for home run audio cables. Simply plug either module into the IP network to add audio to any room. Up to 16 Savant IP Audio units can be interconnected using the AVB 802.1 IEEE standard, expanding the range to as many as 96 listening zones for a synchronised, whole-home audio experience.
With all Savant IP Audio systems, users can enjoy premium sound quality along with intuitive system control straight from the Savant Pro app, Pro Remote, or touch in-wall control screens. The Savant IP Audio 125 includes a single stream of Savant Music and also includes AirPlay support.
“Delivering a superior control and entertainment experience through innovation has always been our goal here at Savant. With the expanded IP Video and Audio product line-up, we have created a tremendous opportunity for our integrators to offer best-in-class performance and scalability for their clients,” says chief executive Robert Madonna.
