New video and audio products from Russound debut at ISE 2019
Audio accessories company Russound produced a new service concept regarding home theatre in 2018 that was first shown at CEDIA Expo. The service combined content and player services and was aimed at bringing theatre-grade viewing and listening closer together.
Now, the product has debuted at ISE 2019 in Amsterdam.
“The ability to make any video feed simply look better through any television had our dealers asking just how soon they could take this innovation to their customers,” says Russound chief executive Charlie Porritt.
“Over-the-top 192kHz 24-bit surround audio was icing on the cake. The physical product is only half the equation. Over time, Russound will be offering its integrators and installers the opportunity to participate in an ever-growing library of theatre-grade 4K video and lossless audio content for their customers worldwide.”
Features include ‘RMC’ native 4K resolution, include high-resolution audio playback capabilities with an impressive 192kHz/24-bit 7.1 and 2.1 digital analogue converter (DAC), whole-home automation functionality, a variety of I/O ports including HDMI 2.0 (3 in and 1 out), analogue and digital I/O, Bluetooth, USB-C 3.1, RJ-45 and a Bluetooth keypad/voice remote.
The Russound Media Centre (RMC) has been specifically designed to operate with both terrestrial and satellite-based IP distribution systems in order for integrators and installers to expand their customer footprints into geographic areas otherwise lacking adequate communications infrastructure, such as a mountain chalet, sea craft, etc.
The RMC will be offered with varying capacities of media storage, all encoded and secured to MPAA-certification standards.
