Sony Announces Home Automation NHS Rack Systems Print E-mail
Monday, 08 September 2008
ImageAdding more options to custom home entertainment and automation, Sony has announced two new fully featured NHS rack systems that deliver whole house high-definition entertainment and control over movies, music, lighting, temperature and security systems.
Building on the award winning NHS-130C, the new models, NHS-A30C and NHS-70C, are fully integrated racks are pre-built, wired, tested, and ready for professional installation. Like the NHS-130C, they offer advanced functionality including iPod connectivity and control, satellite radio, whole-home high-definition video distribution and advanced home automation from Control4®.

The new NHS-A30C rack system provides 5.1 channel, high-definition home theater with a Blu-ray Disc™ player, plus a second zone of distributed HD video and a third zone of audio. The system is integrated with Control4, offering automation of lighting, temperature control, and security systems through an on-screen display.

The new NHS-70C system incorporates 7.1 channel surround sound high-definition home theater for the living room, plus distribution of six zones of HD video. The NHS-70C also adds a 400-disc DVD/CD changer with a disc management system, a 160GB music server, and the ability to add three auxiliary devices for connecting additional components like a high-definition cable box or a PlayStation® 3 gaming console. The system integrates Control4's HC-500 home controller, which organizes and allows users to stream music throughout the home while also offering automation of lighting, temperature control, and security systems through a large onscreen display.

Typical installations will range from $15,000 to $30,000 for the NHS-A30C and $30,000 to $50,000 for the NHS-70C. The systems will be available later this year.
