The NuVo Player App version 1.8.1, available now for download
HEBRON, Ky. - March 19, 2014 - NuVo Technologies has released a new iOS feature for its
the NuVo system. The NuVo Player App version 1.8.1, available now for download, enables
Direct Stream capability for i-devices using iOS 6 or later and supports track selection, volume
control, and more.
"Direct Stream is an important new feature for our NuVo Player Portfolio," Fritz Werder,
VP and General Manager of Legrand's NuVo and On-Q product lines. "Because the app
connects to your Wi-Fi network, anyone can stream directly from their iPhone or iPad even if they
don't have Bluetooth capability on their NuVo player. So now, in addition to playing music from
supported Internet streaming services and content stored on their network, users can also access
content residing locally on their iOS device."
According to Werder, the audio files residing on the device itself are fully accessible
provided both the device and the NuVo Player Portfolio system are on the same network. When
connected, each iPhone or iPad becomes another audio source, the content of which is accessible
as a library within the app and can be listened to by any zone on the system. As many as 16 streams
can be accessed simultaneously, and the app provides controls for play/pause, next song/last song,
and shuffle mode.
The app update featuring Direct Stream will work on all iPhones and iPads running iOS 6 or
later; a firmware update (version 1.8.1) to the Player Portfolio is also required. When the updated
app is opened, it will automatically prompt users to complete the system update and also offer a
brief tutorial on using iOS direct stream.
