System array for ISE 2011
By popular demand we have decided to explain in this forum the technical configuration chosen for our 2011 ISE presentation.
Presented at 2011 ISE in Amsterdam was a typical everyday situation consisting of two A/V zones (living/sleeping quarters) and one purely audio zone (kitchen). DENON was assigned to the A/V living zone. The signal could have been transmitted simultaneously to both A/V zones by using a HDMI splitter.
A NUVO system was used to control all audio transmissions, making signal sharing possible in all rooms. A direct signal input was used for A/V zones. The digital audio signal from the activated input source (Mac mini, Denon, ATV) was fed back to the NUVO after being converted to an analog signal by means of the GEFEN converter. A very effective and cost-efficient control system can be set in this way, as long as an Audio Master Out is available with the TV system.
All content is stored on the Mac mini server, including iTunes serving as the master to feed the ATV2, giving both AV zones access to all content (films/videos/images/music). Additionally, the same Mac miniserver also works as an audio player, for example, for Zone 3. As an alternative, we installed a Twonky server on the Mac mini to make the LG displays available to the UPNP renderer. Please note that the performance was then somewhat sluggish and is therefore not recommended.
Basically, the Mac mini provided only the TV playback, which we handled with a streaming solution. In general, no ATV2 is needed when using a Mac mini because Frontrow performs this task. Nevertheless, Frontrow could possibly disappear with release of OSX 10.7. If the opposite happens, the integrated TV-system tuner could also take over, the Mac mini then becoming redundant and the ATV2 providing access to the content in the network.
The iMac was used as a basic terminal, just as it is often used in a kitchen. Of course, it also helped maintain the iTunes data by matching them automatically with the server. Also the iMac may be used to connect to the NUVO system, which was not done in our example. We have also integrated our button bars. They make possible audio playback, volume control and the like as well as access to lighting and TKM or Mobotix along with the embedding of fixed URLs for TV guides or recipes.
All in all, a pretty smart installation...
On top of that, we integrated audio ATV2 access through KNX sensory equipment as well as numerous applications through JUNG FP. Designed especially for m..myhome FAP process connection, this has great potential and was presented in a very impressive way.
The entire control was done by means of m..Remote on two iPad's and two iPod's.
