The high performance HC–800 Controller
The new HC-800 controller has the horsepower, capabilities and design to serve as the cornerstone for every whole-home automation installation
The HC-800 can run even the most demanding installation and can connect and control virtually anything in the home with:
- Four audio outputs (2 analog, 1 digital, HDMI)
- One audio input which enables the enjoyment of the largest of music collections (Internet radio and/or streaming music) to be simultaneously played in up to 4 different zones throughout a home or business. (No secondary media player is needed.)
- 6 IR, 2 Serial, 4 contacts and relays
- Integrated Wi-Fi and ZigBee with external antennas
- eSATA and USB ports to connect external hard disks
The controller delivers instantaneous, interactive on-screen control and browsing of large media libraries. Thanks to the next-generation processors even large ZigBee networks are accessed at high speed and responsiveness. Certified HDMI, with audio and video (Navigator), the controller also provides reliable connectivity.
The sleek, elegant design allows flexibility around installation in a cabinet, on a shelf or in a rack (1RU).
The HC-800 controller will be available from mid February / March.
