Channel Vision A4623/A4603 - v 7.0.1
Extra Vegetables' Control4 driver for the Channel Vision Aria A4623 multiroom amplifier and controller enables this product to be used as the amplification heart of a Control4 system.
The A4623 is a very cost effective central amplification solution which distributes four sources (audio and composite video) to six rooms.
The A4603 is the switch only version suitable for combining with the Channel Vision (or other) power amplifier. A range of simple keypads can also be used for control in minor rooms.
Aldous Systems distribute the A4623 in Europe.
The Extra Vegetables Control4 driver for the Channel Vision Aria A4623/A4603 Multiroom Amplifier/Controller implements the following features:
•Reliable two-way serial control direct to A4623/A4603 unit.
The A4623 has a serial port that can be used to control the unit using this driver. This enables reliable communication between the two systems.
•No programming of A4623/A4603 required.
In fact the A4623 can't be programmed, in stand alone mode it simply acts as an IR repeating system. Since you have the power of Control4 at your disposal you don't need an multiroom amp with intelligence. So with the Aria you aren't paying for something you will never use.
•Can use Channel Vision Aria keypads if required.
Channel Vision have some simple keypads to complement the system. These provide source selection and volume control - ideal for minor rooms and bathrooms.
•Very Cost Effective Solution
Channel Vision products are always well priced - the perfect solution for a customer on a budget.
•Compatible with OS 1.7, 1.8 and 2.x.
All 'Driverworks' versions of Control4 are supported. There are no differences in the feature sets between versions.
There are currently the following limitations with the driver:
•No discreet volume control
The A4623 does not support the discreet setting of volume so it cannot be implemented.
•Hard Programmed Keypads
If you use Channel Vision keypads the source selection buttons will always turn on the source - they cannot be re-programmed for other uses.
The following are required for successful deployment of the driver.
•Control4 1.8 (or higher) + HC800 Controller for larger systems
The introduction of any two-way driver into a project adds to the processor load. In line with Control4's recommendations we suggest that an HC800 is used for systems of more than three rooms.
This driver is an independent commercial release by Extra Vegetables Ltd. It is not authorized or supported either by Control4. Channel Vision have fully supported its development but all support is provided by Extra Vegetables through its authorized dealer network.
