Chameleo Audio is Released, Enabling Audio Distribution Systems to Control HD Video Switchers

Architechtronics, announces Chameleo AUDIO -the first product on the market to provide a simple connection between such as Russound, Nuvo or Nexus audio distribution systems and Key Digital, Network Technologies or Gefen HD Matrix switchers.

Chameleo AUDIO allows future and existing audio distribution customers the ability to control high definition matrix switchers at a very reasonable cost. "As High Definition manufacturers push to make HDTV a standard in homes, this product will keep these new HD Switchers in sync with already installed audio systems" explains Architechtronics Founder Brett Griffin.


Chameleo AUDIO connects to the audio systems and the matrix switch via a RS -232 connection, and after a simple setup performs all the functions passively. Simply change the source in the master bedroom to the HD Tivo. The audio system continues to handle the appropriate audio and Chameleo AUDIO instructs the HD Matrix switch to take control of the video feed.

The Chameleo AUDIO is the second product in a growing family of control devices. Chameleo AUDIO will be shipping in October 2006. Architechtronics is offering 20% off on orders with payments received during September in recognition of CEDIA.
