The app with Direct Stream requires that the NuVo Player Portfolio be updated with firmware version 1.8.
HEBRON, Ky. - April 14, 2014 - NuVo Technologies has released the Android version of Direct Stream
with track selection, volume control, and more. The company previously released Direct Stream for its
iOS Player app on March 19th.
"Direct Stream is a feature that our Player Portfolio customers have been asking for," said Fritz
Werder, VP and General Manager of Legrand's NuVo and On-Q product lines. "Like the recently released
iOS version, the app connects to your Wi-Fi network and allows anyone to stream content directly from
their Android phone or tablet."
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 Android 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 with Direct Stream requires that the NuVo Player Portfolio be updated with firmware
version 1.8. If the firmware has not yet been updated, opening the app will initiate the download and installation of the new version. Once the system is updated and the app is opened, it will initiate a brief tutorial on using the direct stream feature.
