Nortek Security & Control Announces Introduction of Xantech® TV Director App

App provides intuitive source control without added cost of a dedicated control system and requires virtually no configuration once installed by a Xantech pro.

CARLSBAD, Calif., May 18, 2020  — Nortek Security & Control LLC (NSC) today announced the Xantech® TV Director App which is used for controlling the Xantech Advanced Control Module (ACM) and Premium 4K Video over IP (VIP) system. With practically no set up or configuration required, it’s the easy way to deliver intuitive source control without the added cost of a dedicated control system.

The Xantech 4K Video Over IP (VIP) product is designed to distribute HDMI over a 1 Gb network that is both simple to install and manage. Using lossless compression and near-zero latency, this suite of products supports 4K Ultra HD HDMI along with audio, HDR, IR and RS-232 for AV distribution on a new level. Managing a VIP system now becomes easier than ever. An intuitive drag-and-drop experience is combined with live snapshots that let users switch with confidence, knowing exactly what sources are being directed to each display.

With the new Xantech TV Director App, setup for an entire VIP system takes only minutes. Once installed on an iOS or Android device, the Xantech TV Director automatically detects the installed VIP system and is ready to go. Designed for both Residential, Pro / Commercial and Enterprise customers, users can manage any size VIP system along with video walls for a truly simple control experience.

The Xantech TV Director App delivers the following user features:
• Preview shows the current content on sources and displays
• Simply drag the source image to the desired display
• Customized user interface available
• Video wall source selection with video preview
• Access to the ACM web interface module for configuration and control of the Xantech VIP system

“Our Xantech TV Director App puts the power of VIP right in the palm of your hand and is a visually simple and practical way to control a 4K Video over IP system,” said Richard Pugnier, vice president of marketing at NSC. “Our mission is to always deliver leading technology to the market that makes both our professional integrators’ and their end customers’ lives enriched and fulfilled.”

“Living on your existing or new wired IP network, this AV system grows with you and can scale to support a near infinite number of sources and displays,” added Jason Fitzgerald, product manager for NSC. “This new app is now available for smartphones and tablets via the Apple iTunes and Google Play stores.”
