In the seminal 60’s movie ‘The Graduate’ our hero Ben Braddock, played by Dustin Hofmann, is approached by an individual who wants to impress a career path on the recent post grad with one word. “Plastics” he says, implying that it was the future. Well, we have another one for you ‘Distribution’, implying it is the essential backbone to any smart home.
It is very interesting to note that Crestron won with our distribution systems, the essential element in any home entertainment install. We have been providing audio and video distribution for nearly as long as the company has existed. Our newest offerings not only deliver high quality audio and video but control and data, all on one wire.
The remarkable Sonnex Multiroom Audio System won in the Mulitroom Audio category.
Sonnex Transmits 48 channels of audio and control over a single wire. Using localized expander units makes retrofits easier and adding on to an existing Sonnex system a snap.
