NuVo Releases API for New Wireless Audio System And Upgrades Wireless Player's iOS and Android App to Allow Embedding Within Third-Party Control Apps

The API will enable dealers to set up their control programs to operate the functions of the Wireless Audio System, including source and zone selection, queue editing, volume control for any or all zones, treble and bass adjustment and other features.

Aiming to give installers the greatest flexibility when integrating the NuVo Wireless Audio System into a larger home electronic system, NuVo Technologies announced it has released the complete API, or application programming interface, allowing dealers to add instructions for the wireless network into their system-wide control programs.


In a related development, NuVo also announced that the latest upgrade to the Wireless Player App for both iOS and Android could now be used as an "app within an app" with Crestron, Bitwise, AMX, and other home automation control apps that support launching embedded URL schemes. The feature lets users access the Wireless Audio Systems' control features without having to exit the other maker's control application.

"These measures will help make our Wireless Audio System the installer's first choice for wireless home audio," said David Rodarte, NuVo Vice President and General Manager. "In many cases, dealers need to be able to integrate multiple makers' products under a unified control system to deliver a fully customised solution that exceeds their customers' expectations. We know they've been anticipating this software release. Many were asking for an integration path, even before the product hit the market."

According to Rodarte, the API will enable dealers to set up their control programs to operate the functions of the Wireless Audio System, including source and zone selection, queue editing, volume control for any or all zones, treble and bass adjustment and other features. It will allow access to all the music content available to the Wireless Audio System, including Internet radio services, networked storage devices with digital audio files and Bluetooth linked content. The Wireless Audio System can play all popular digital audio formats as well as high resolution (24-bit, 96KHz) recordings.

Rodarte said the API was available now to NuVo dealers by emailing sales@nuvotechnologies.com or by speaking with their NuVo Sales Manager and that the updated apps were already available on the iTunes App Store or Google Play.
