Hyannis, MA. May 21st, 2012-Savant Systems LLC, having delivered the first complete Apple®-based home automation and commercial control system, has announced the addition of OPPO to their PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE cooperative program. Savant's PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE initiative has been targeted to achieve global compatibility between Savant's control systems and a diverse group of best-in-class manufacturers from the audio, video, lighting control, HVAC, and security industries, as well as devices and subsystems from many related markets.

Founded in 2004, OPPO Digital, Inc. is based in Mountain View, California, the heart of Silicon Valley. Having delivered their first upsampling DVD player in 2005, OPPO designs and markets high quality digital electronics that deliver style, performance, innovation, and value to A/V enthusiasts. "Savant's Partners in Excellence program is good for our mutual customers," explained Nathaniel Plain, Technical Services Manager at OPPO. "Our Blu-Ray players are frequently used in automated home theaters, so having our profile at the ready within the Savant environment creates integration opportunity for the dealers and the best possible experience for our customers," added Plain.

Participation in Savant's PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE cooperative program will facilitate the seamless integration of OPPO's devices within the Savant system environment. "Savant uses OPPO players in our New York Experience Center as well as for trade shows and we are pleased to welcome them to our PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE program," stated Savant's Director of Business Development Bob Ross. "Our dealers encounter the Oppo brand in the field and maintaining updated profiles will maximize efficiency and smooth interoperability between the brands," Ross concluded.

The core of Savant's technology is an open programmable platform built upon the Mac OS X operating system supporting various communication protocols and offering high speed A/V switching, scaling and processing.

Savant's PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE program will open new doors for participating manufacturers seeking to expand their business in a rapidly growing industry.
