CEDIA - Pro Control Adds DISH Hopper(R) Integration to Residential Control Portfolio

Newest Two-Way Driver Facilitates Setup and Operation of Popular DVR

SHAKOPEE, Minn. -- Oct. 7, 2015 -- Pro Control today announced that the company has introduced a new two-way driver for DISH's Hopper(R) Whole-Home HD DVR. Designed to deliver a more user-friendly experience via Pro Control's award-winning products, the innovation allows integrators to easily provide their customers with control over one of the industry's leading video entertainment platforms.

"The feature-rich Hopper entertainment platform is the perfect addition to Pro Control's control system lineup," said Frank DeFilippis, DISH manager of channel programs. "This integration will allow Pro Control's partners to deploy reliable control of our award-winning entertainment technology, including our upcoming 4K Joey, while delivering a great customer experience."

The driver for DISH's Hopper utilizes control via IP for seamless, reliable integration with
Pro Control products. Built-in auto-discovery tools find receivers on the network, speeding up the installation process for integrators. As a result, end users can now easily manage their video content as well as other electronic systems without leaving their Pro Control interface. In addition, the Hopper allows users to record up to six shows at once, store up to 2,000 hours of content, watch live and recorded TV on the go via the DISH Anywhere mobile app, and more.

"Our new DISH driver makes it incredibly easy for integrators to connect users to a whole new range of entertainment possibilities," said Mike Everett, general manager of Pro Control. "Like the rest of our two-way driver library, this recent innovation sustains our company's commitment to simplicity, reliability, and an intuitive customer experience, streamlining the integration of the market's most impressive third-party products."
