NUVO ENHANCES PRODUCT LINE WITH NEW D AMPLIFIER™ FROM PHILIPS SEMICONDUCTORS

NuVo Technologies announces the revolutionary Generation D™, a design protocol utilizing digital amplification for energy conservation, cool operation, and clear, precise sound.

September 6, 2003, CINCINNATI, OH -NuVo Technologies announces the revolutionary Generation D™, a design protocol utilizing digital amplification for energy conservation, cool operation, and clear, precise sound. NuVo will initially use the design standard in the new eight -listening -zone, six -source, whole -house audio system, called ConcertoTM . The protocol will also be used in the first -quarter 2004 production of NuVo's well -respected EssentiaTM six -listening -zone, six -source system.


The Generation D protocol utilizes the D Amplifier™ Semiconductors solution by Philips that provides more robust power to all channels while decreasing power consumption by a minimum of 55% and dramatically reducing heat generation.

The Generation D protocol also includes the following:
· An RS232 -operational port that allows for real -time system control
· FR4 fiberglass printed circuit boards to reduce electromagnetic interference
· Gold -plated circuit board connectors that provide long -term reliability
· Smart infrared control allowing identical source equipment use for multiple inputs
· Rigorous pre -shipment testing -a 12 -hour load -and -temperature cycling test with 36 on/off cycles to ensure 100% performance

Key to the Generation D approach is the utilization of the D Amplifier™ IC by Philips.

The highly reliable D Amplifier™ reduces energy consumption, dramatically reduces heat, and delivers a stunningly clear sound. The D Amplifier™ is also speaker -friendly and provides soft compression when overloaded -a safeguard that prevents clipping damage to system speakers from potentially destructive high decibel−level play.

The benefits of employing the D Amplifier™ are clear. David Rodarte, President of NuVo Technologies, emphasizes the value of the new protocol and digital amplifier: "We will once again offer a strong value to the market that incorporates leading -edge technology." Rutton Ruttonsha, Vice President BL Audio Solutions for Philips Semiconductors, matches his enthusiasm: "We are very pleased to see our D Amplifier™ utilized by NuVo Technologies in the home audio marketplace. Their concept of high quality centralized audio control is a goal that we share in our developments towards the connected home of the future."

NuVo Technologies, based in Cincinnati, Ohio, is an innovator in the engineering, manufacturing, and distribution of high -quality audio systems. NuVo offers quality electronics that represent the best value in class.

ELK Products -C1M1 Dual-Path Alarm Communicators with Remote Services

C1M1 offers a truly significant reduction in transmission time in comparison to other communicators that rely on dial capture or data bus decoding. This can result in quicker response time to emergency situations which could save lives and assets. By providing both IP and cellular pathways, C1M1 provides the reliability installers are looking for in an alarm communicator. C1M1 eliminates port forwarding and extra fees for remote access. Installers can remotely upload/download programming changes to M1 controls over IP or cellular using ElkRP2. Consumers can control the M1 remotely via the free ElkLink mobile app and web portal, as well as eKeypad and M1 Touch Pro apps. Other IP-based software and interface partners can connect to the M1 control over the local network through C1M1. C1M1 also provides email/text notifications for arm, disarm, and alarm events. ELK-C1M14GSM supports GSM (AT&T/T-Mobile) networks and ELK-C1M1CDMA supports CDMA (Verizon) networks.
