SAVANT Adds D-BOX to Partners in Excellence Cooperative Program

D-BOX Technologies designs, manufactures and markets motion systems intended mainly for the entertainment and industrial simulation industries.

Hyannis, MA. July 18, 2012-Savant Systems LLC, having delivered the first Apple®-based home automation and commercial control system, has announced the addition of D-BOX Technologies Inc. to their PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE cooperative program. Savant's PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE initiative has been targeted to achieve global compatibility between Savant's control systems and a diverse group of best-in-class manufacturers from the audio, video, lighting control, HVAC, and security industries, as well as devices and subsystems from many related markets.


Based in the greater Montreal area, D-BOX Technologies designs, manufactures and markets motion systems intended mainly for the entertainment and industrial simulation industries. The company's patented technology uses motion effects programmed for all types of visual content that are sent to a motion system integrated into either a platform or a seat. The resulting motion is thus perfectly synchronized with the on-screen action, creating a realistic and immersive viewing experience. "We are pleased to be able to have the D-BOX Motion Controller interface with Savant, providing our mutual customers with a truly lifelike viewing experience," stated Guy Marcoux, Vice President of Marketing for D-BOX.

Participation in Savant's PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE cooperative program will facilitate the seamless integration of D-BOX devices within the Savant system environment. "Savant is excited to welcome D-BOX to our PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE program," stated Savant's Director of Business Development Bob Ross. "Our dealer base will have an opportunity to integrate D-BOX technology for their customers and feel confident knowing that Savant and D-BOX will work seamlessly together," Ross concluded.

The core of Savant's technology is an open programmable platform built upon the Mac OS X operating system supporting various communication protocols and offering high speed A/V switching, scaling and processing.

Savant's PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE program will open new doors for participating manufacturers seeking to expand their business in a rapidly growing industry.
