HydraConnect Adds RTI to HDMI Matrix Processors


HydraConnect-hss2-matrix-control.jpgHydraConnect LLC, the Denver based manufacturer of HDMI matrix processors, has added new control software to its HSS product family that provides full support for RTI (Remote Technologies Inc.) home automation systems. The software, which was developed by and will be supported by RTI, makes it possible for custom installers to easily integrate HydraConnect HSS systems into RTI home automation systems.

"We are very pleased that RTI chose to develop drivers for our products," said HydraConnect's president, David Schanin. "Our HSS-family of matrix processors will give RTI's installers a better way to combine state-of-the-art AV systems with their remarkable home automation systems. RTI's engineers did an outstanding job bridging the two environments to take full advantage of our patented CEC control, auto-configuration, Dynamic EDID, HDCP key management, and many other features."

In addition to supporting HydraConnect's 8x8 HDMI switching, the RTI drivers support 8x16 stereo switching, and provide full remote control over all connected playback, receiver, and TV devices. The HydraConnect HSS system provides auto-configuration of detected A/V media devices, automatic EDID, HDCP key management, and patented CEC control that eliminates the need for IR flashers and other cabling. The RTI driver download also includes a sample user interface for RTI's iPad application.

The new software is currently available from RTI with HSS support included in all shipping HSS units. Existing HSS units have already been upgraded using HydraConnect's automatic software update process, which is used by all fielded HSS family systems in use worldwide without customer or dealer intervention.
