Video switcher enhances Niles‘ multizone offering with the addition of high-definition whole house distributed video

MIAMI, FLORIDA – January 9, 2008 – Niles Audio Corporation, The First Name in Custom Installation®, today announced the company‘s VS-6, a high-definition video distribution system, and the IRG, a device for automating local television sets, are now shipping. When used in conjunction with the award-winning IntelliControl® ICS, ZR-6 or ZR-PRO multizone distributed audio systems, the VS-6 / IRG combination delivers high definition video content from six independent sources to up to 30 individual zones and makes audio/video entertainment available from one single button press of Niles keypads, touch screens and hand-held wireless remote controls. The VS-6 system architecture supports high-definition video distribution via component video and CAT-5 outputs simultaneously for signal transmission up to 300 meters.

The IRG manages local television power-on, input selection and power-off via network interface with the VS-6 and IntelliControl ICS or ZR-PRO multizone systems. Niles dealers can now offer their clients high-definition audio/video distribution, including local television automation, from a variety of user interfaces that enable end users to operate sophisticated audio/video systems with the touch of a button.

“Now, Niles dealers can distribute audio and high-definition video via component video cabling or CAT-5 wiring and control it from any Niles user interface,” said Frank Sterns, president of Niles. “With flat panels being hung everywhere and designers demanding less clutter, Niles‘ new VS-6 / IRG combination is the ideal solution for distributing high definition video from a central system with local television automation,” Sterns added.

The VS-6 is a six source, six zone high-definition video switcher that can also be used stand-alone using RS232 and/or infrared (IR) commands and integrates seamlessly with the IntelliControl ICS, ZR-6 and ZR-PRO whole-house distributed entertainment systems. The IRG infrared gateway uses the IntelliControl ICS or ZR-PRO system network architecture to automate local televisions reliably. Integrating the VS-6 / IRG combination into IntelliControl ICS or ZR-PRO systems is quick and easy via Niles‘ wizard-based software. During system set-up, the installer answers a series of logical questions after which the system is automatically configured, saving installers time on the job and leading to improved productivity. The VS-6 high definition video switcher and IRG infrared gateway are now shipping and available to dealers.
