Sony unveils multi-zone home distribution and control system for video entertainment
The Sony CAV-M1000ES control system includes a wireless 5.1-inch LCD touch-screen main controller with full two-way RF communication for total control of home media devices.
Sony Electronics has introduced a multi-room, multi-zone video and audio distribution system to control and deliver electronic entertainment in virtually every room of a home.
The new CAV-M1000ES system is a single box system that works as an A/V distribution center and can accommodate even the most elaborate home theater configurations. With numerous inputs and outputs, it can connect to and control most audio and video components throughout the house, including multiple television sets, CD and DVD players, VCRs, cable or satellite boxes, and high-definition receivers.
The Sony CAV-M1000ES control system includes a wireless 5.1-inch LCD touch-screen main controller with full two-way RF communication for total control of home media devices; four RS-232 ports (three rear and one front for PC setup) and one Control A1 II port for two-way device control; independent IR (infrared) control for each source selection; six-zone control amplifier with 30 watts per channel with line level audio and video outputs; and eight sources of audio and video with pass-through capabilities.
The system uses standard speaker wire and CAT5 wiring to each room. There’s PC set-up software for simple integration; six 12V triggers for advanced automation of additional components; full feedback auto-programming LCD keypads for each zone (up to 12 keypads, two for each zone); and content navigation for browsing through CD and DVD titles with delivery to touch-screen main controller and LCD keypads.
The CAV-M1000ES multi-zone control system and the touch screen in-wall keypad will be available exclusively for the custom installation channel in June.
