CEA launches multi-room audio/video guide

The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) has launched a new interactive guide to DigitalTips.org (its consumer website) demonstrating how homeowners can take full advantage of music and video collections in all areas of their homes through multi-room audio/video (MRAV).

The
MRAV guide follows ‘a day in the life’ of the Johnson family using
their MRAV system to bring the family together. It includes a printable
planning checklist with step-by-step directions on how to speak with
builders, remodelling contractors or integrators about incorporating a
system into a home.




“There
is a growing demand from consumers to be able to access their music and
video libraries wherever and whenever they want in their home,” said
Jason Oxman, senior vice-president, industry affairs for CEA. “The MRAV
Guide and checklist are tools to use when thinking about adding a zoned
system to a home. MRAV installed solutions allow consumers to add both
entertainment and value to their home.”




Through
features like ubiquitous access to content and independent zones,
consumers can enjoy digital entertainment throughout their home with an
MRAV system. As the guide demonstrates, MRAV systems offer a small
footprint over traditional home entertainment systems. Professionally
installed systems can centralize audio and home theatre equipment,
eliminate redundant components and be controlled from any part of the
home.
