SpeakerCraft is working on an IP-based multi-room system that will be able to broadcast audio and video simultaneously across multiple rooms through a single category cable connected to consumer electronics sources. This will be a Nirv system and will be shown at CEDIA in September with a tentative release date of the first quarter of 2010.
The system will be able to accommodate up to 256 zones and 256 sources. It can handle between four and six 1080p sources as well as stereo audio. Nirv will be offering two dozen SKUs for this system, including a main system controller, audio/video source input devices, receivers, decoders, in-wall keypad and touchscreen controllers, a remote and an iPod dock.
