Nirvana Audio Visual goes GOLD!

Nirvana Audio Visual - Control4 Gold Dealer 2012We are very proud to announce that we have been accredited with Control4’s Authorized GOLD Dealer 2012.

 

We have worked long and hard to achieve this recognition both with our installations and behind the scenes. So, what does this mean? A Control4 Authorized Gold Dealer is one that has completed additional Control4 training, sales and experience requirements in home automation and control. Our lead programmers have now become Tech II certified, meaning they have completed and passed the highest form of Control4 training available today. This training incorporates Control4’s best practices in system design and optimization, advanced programming techniques, troubleshooting and creating custom drivers.

 

Our sales team has completed additional Control4 training in some of the following areas: Home automation fundamentals, audio distribution, home theater setup and customization of the Control4 systems. All of that is well and good (and gives us nice shiny certificates to pin up!), but the key to our achievement is experience. Our extensive experience not just in Control4 systems, but other systems such as lighting, audio and video distribution, security and more-so the integration of all of these has led us a cut above the rest. We would also like to add that it is not just Control4 we are highly trained and/or accredited with but other manufacturers such as Lutron, Niko, Rako, Speakercraft, Crestron, Sonos, Clipsal and the list goes on.

 

In a constantly evolving technological era, we are always keeping up to date with the latest products and systems, integration and installation and we will continue to move with them, gaining training and experience for as long as we exist! Next year we look forward to becoming Control4’s Authorized Platinum Dealer!

Control4 release new 7″ Portable Touch Screen

New Control4 7" Touch Screen.

Control4 have just announced the release of a brand new 7″ Portable Touch Screen. We haven’t got our hands on one as yet but from looking into it, it looks like it is based on the same technology as the fantastic Infinity Edge 7″ touch screens.

 

This new portable touch screen boasts a capacitive full-colour LCD panel, full 2-way control of the Control4 system, a sleek tablet form-factor, better WiFi range than it’s predecessor, long lasting rechargable battery, downloadable apps with it’s OS2.x software, and a full featured 2-way intercom between other new 7″ portable touch screens and the Infinity edge touch screens.

 

Just like it’s predecessor the new portable touch screen comes with a docking station for charging and when used on the docking station becomes a ‘table top’ touch screen which can be powered from either a power outlet or PoE (Power over Ethernet). When docked it can take advantage of an ethernet connection (if there is one provided).

 

We have been waiting a long time for this and can’t wait to get our hands on one!
