Neothings And Charmed Quark Systems Announce Device Support
La Mesa, CA, January3, 2006 - Neothings, Inc., in coordination with Charmed Quark Systems Ltd. announced today that the Avalonâ„¢ matrix switch is now fully supported in the Charmed Quark Controller software.
Charmed Quark Systems software, called the Charmed Quark Controller, or CQC, is a full featured, low cost control system for PC based control systems. CQC can interface to home theater equipment, HVAC, lighting, and security systems. Addition of support for Neothings products will add to options for Neothings and Charmed Quark Systems customers alike.
â€œPart of the focus for Neothings is to facilitate the integration of the home, and support from CQC helps us achieve that goalâ€, states Bill Paul, CEO of Neothings, Inc.
The Avalonâ„¢ is a component video and digital audio matrix switch, featuring up to 8 component video and digital audio inputs and up to 4 outputs. The 8x4 version can accommodate 8 sources of high-definition component video, such as D-VHS decks, cable boxes, satellite receivers, DVD changers, and more. Using the 4 outputs, each output can be routed to a different room in the home, allowing each room location to view different HD video sources. With this latest announcement, the system integrator or home theater DIY user can employ off the shelf touch panels with the CQC software to allow control from any room in the home. The Avalonâ„¢ is also available in a 6x2 configuration.
Neothings was started earlier this year with the goal of creating audio / video switching and routing products specifically built for home theater enthusiasts and custom system integrators. Home theater customers typically need products features that mass market manufacturers aren't willing to include, so Neothings focus has been on performance and features rather than price. Custom Integrators that are tired of hassles when trying to control regular consumer equipment will breathe a sigh of relief with the many control options and simple operation of the Neothings Integrator line of equipment.
