SAVANT® Introduces SmartView Video Tiling Technology

High definition video from up to six sources viewable on a single display-all controlled easily from an iPad®

Hyannis, MA. September 4, 2012 - Savant Systems LLC, having delivered the first Apple®-based home automation and commercial control system, has announced SmartView Tiling, a technology enabling a single display to show several video sources simultaneously. From an iPad, users will be able to drag and drop selected sources to their chosen locations within the tile grid; pinch and zoom to have any source take over the entire display, and create custom tiling layouts and channel presets for easy recall. Savant SmartView Tiling seamlessly ties true HDMI video with the support of HD audio together for an unmatched A/V experience.


SmartView Tiling is a versatile technology appropriate for residential and commercial applications and at launch will accept any video input and support up to six sources in resolutions up to 1080P. Savant's world class video processing and scaling delivers an HD signal to the display via an HDMI output. Source inputs can range from Blu-ray players, cable boxes, security cameras or other video devices and users will be able to easily arrange their tiling and change it on the fly via Savant's intuitive iPad interface. "Savant's unique ability to leverage the native capabilities of the iPad has enabled us to elevate video tiling technology, creating an unparalleled user experience," stated Savant CEO Robert Madonna. "Having the capacity to easily select and control multiple programs with both HD video and audio on a single display is an enticing new functionality that Savant installation specialists can present to both new and existing customers," Madonna added.

Integrators can field upgrade existing Savant SmartMediaPro systems by adding SmartView Tiling modules, bringing new and exciting functionality to existing customers. Savant SmartView Tiling will be on display at the CEDIA Future Technology Pavilion (booth #5661) and begin shipping to authorized dealers fall, 2012.
