Switch Automation's MRA solution does not require a dedicated multi-channel power amplifier and connects to a standard IP network, streaming music from a Switch Automation server. A range of Switch Automation interactive interfaces including in-wall touch screens, wireless web tablets, Phillips Pronto and browser based devices provide complete control of the multi room audio system.
Switch Automation Network Music Players feature a 2 x 25 Watt, class D amplifier to directly power a pair of speakers. Alternative RCA line level output is provided with an optical SPDIF output for connection to home theatre amplifiers and receivers.
Switch Automation's 15-inch interactive in-wall touch screens have been upgraded to provide the ability of viewing digital television within a separate window or full screen as an option. Control of the digital television is provided by on-screen buttons allowing direct channel access of favourite channels.
