Naim Control4 Driver Launched at ISE 2020
Control4's new driver enables installers to integrate Naim music streaming.
Naim Audio has launched a dedicated Control4 driver for its much-loved range of music-streaming speakers and systems.
The new driver hands seamless control of connected Naim products to installers via Control4's wide range of touchscreens, remote controls and apps. This enables high-performance multiroom music streaming to be easily integrated into discreet custom installations. The driver also supports volume control and source switching through the Control4 interface.
The Control4 driver works with all Naim products based the brand's latest-generation music streaming platform: the Mu-so and Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation wireless speakers; Uniti Atom, Uniti Star and Uniti Nova streaming systems, and ND5 XS 2, NDX 2 and ND555 dedicated music streaming players. Further Naim products – including the Uniti Core music server – can also be integrated, offering the ability to rip and store music collections for playback through home installations.
Additionally, the driver also currently supports browsing of TIDAL and Internet Radio with more services planned to roll out in the future. AirPlay 2, Chromecast built-in and Spotify Connect features continue to operate as usual, and the Naim App and individual product remote controls can also be used.
The Naim Control4 driver offers two control methods for a Naim streaming product. Firstly, as a media renderer, allowing browsing and playback of music services. The other is a traditional control method – enabling source switching, volume control and other functions. Moreover, the installer can use either or both ways in the project. Furthermore, the new driver connects the Naim product to a Control4 processor over a network connection, so no special cabling needed - you can also use wireless if really necessary.
The new Naim Control4 driver will be exclusively available to registered Control4 installers, who will be able to download the software from Intrinsic, from March.
