NAD Announces Participation in Crestron's Certified Integrated Partner Program

Partnership assures seamless integration between NAD components and Crestron control systems

PICKERING ONTARIO, CANADA, Nov. 8, 2004 -NAD, the highly regarded manufacturer of high -performance audio components, is pleased to announce its participation in the Crestron Certified Integrated Partner program. The Certified Partner program facilitates ease of integration and technical support for Custom Installation technicians when using Crestron's advanced control systems with NAD's high performance Audio and Video Components.

"Crestron has always looked to build the Integrated Partner program with companies like NAD," says Chris Wildfoerster, Crestron Director of Business Development. "Their products are of the highest quality and integrate well into a Crestron control environment."

The Crestron Certified Integrated Partner program insures that the operating systems of NAD components will work seamlessly with Crestron's control system, and provides Crestron dealers technical support when integrating NAD components with Crestron controllers.

"With so many of our premier Custom Retailers and Custom Installers relying on Crestron products for system integration and control," states NAD's National Sales Manager, Stephen DeFuria, "it makes perfect sense for NAD to work closely with Crestron to simplify the integration of our products for the most advanced Home Theater and distributed audio systems."
