AudioControl and Josh.ai partner up
AudioControl, distributed by Synergy Audio Visual in Australia, has announced that its Concert Series AV receivers and Maestro Series pre-amps are now compatible with the Josh.ai platform.
Integrators can now control their premium home entertainment systems with Josh.ai’s natural language and privacy-focused voice automation technology. AudioControl devices are auto-discoverable for voice control and lets users toggle power, volume, mute control, input switching, single to multi-source and multi-zone routing.
Set-up is made easy as AudioControl’s Director Series amplifiers, home theatre Concert AV receivers and Maestro preamp/processors will auto-populate within the Josh.ai web portal for configuration once connected to the same network.
Voice commands can leverage the matrixing capabilities of the available products and can direct programming to any zone at any preferred volume level.
“AudioControl is committed to bringing the best possible entertainment experience to consumers through our integration partners,” AudioControl chief executive Alex Camara says.
“I see this collaboration with Josh.ai as an opportunity to add the convenience of voice control to our Director Series amplifiers as well as our Concert and Maestro Series theatre platforms, merging the ultimate in audio and video performance with advanced, intuitive operability for end-users.”
The Josh.ai platform is able to search for content through all available streaming services and manage volume commands for individual or grouped output zones, providing users with the freedom to enjoy their favourite programming anywhere in the home.
“We’re thrilled to align with AudioControl as a fellow innovator in our industry,” Josh.ai chief executive Alex Capecelatro says.
“The strength of our partnerships and device integrations are extremely important as we recommend robust solutions for luxury clients who want performance as well as reliability. Our goal with Josh.ai is to deliver a magical user experience, and partnering with AudioControl is another step toward that vision.”
