SAVANT® Expands SmartView Video Tiling Technology, Delivering up to Nine Content Windows to any HD Display

High definition video from up to 24 sources viewable on a single display with up to 9 tiles-all controlled easily from an iPad®

Hyannis, MA. February 25, 2013 - Savant Systems, LLC has expanded the capabilities of their much heralded SmartView Tiling technology to deliver up to nine high definition (HD) windows of content or media on a single display. SmartView Tiling, initially unveiled with a six-tile capacity, is a versatile technology featuring broadcast quality video processing and scaling that is appropriate for both residential and commercial applications. Savant SmartView Tiling will accept video input resolutions up to 1080p while delivering HD video to the display via HDMI. Source inputs can broadly range from Blu-ray players, cable boxes, security cameras or other video devices. Most importantly, users will be able to easily arrange their tiling, change content programming and save "favorite" configurations all via Savant's intuitive iPad interface. The nine-tile version is available now with Savant's multi-window video processing modules, the VOM-SV02 and the SVT-009T platform.

Using Savant's TrueControl™ iPad® app along with familiar Apple gestures, users will be able to drag and drop selected sources to their chosen locations within the tile grid; pinch and zoom to have any source take over the entire display, and create custom tiling layouts and channel presets for easy recall. Savant SmartView Tiling seamlessly ties true HDMI video with the support of HD audio together for an unmatched A/V experience. With Savant SmartView technology, users can check the scores of multiple games, monitor the weekend forecast, follow their investment portfolio and see who's at the door, all without disrupting the family movie. SmartView Tiling brings ultimate flexibility to the HD viewing experience.

With the capability to switch up to 24 media sources displayed on an array of one to nine windows, Savant's SmartView Tiling delivers convenient access to personalized programming selections. Users can create up to four presets based upon parameters such as selected media sources, channels, screen layout, audio source and volume level. Savant authorized integrators can field-upgrade existing Savant SmartMediaPro systems by adding SmartView Tiling modules, bringing this exciting functionality to existing Savant customers.
