ERDrPC Posted February 28, 2010 Share Posted February 28, 2010 I read this article on CEPro. It seems NetStreams doesn't compress their video like JAP does. Has anyone used their product?http://www.cepro.com/article/post-acquisition_netstreams_recommits_to_resi_av_control/The follow was a reply on the CEPro articleKeep in mind that the NetStreams products not only distribute all the digital audio and video, but you have complete control all over the same data connection. No need for additional control boxes for your relay needs or input sensors, power sensors, IR and serial routing. All of your control needs are included and no additional wiring, power supplies or programming required.We have a new Tech Sales department that just started at NetStreams.

Crestron has a very nice but very expensive digital media product. It is future proof, ie you can just change the control card to handle 4k and 8k content if you were smart enough/can afford to run fiber. It will also spit the HDMI audio and video for those times where you want to listen to a different audio stream. I wonder if JAP, NetStreams HDMI over IP or any other HDMI distribution system will be easily upgradeable and can be integrated into the cheaper but still great C4. This is one of the issues weighing my decision on my home automation installation as I don't want to rip stuff out to upgrade 10 years down the line. I'm waiting to see what comes out at CEDIA in September as well as C4 2.0 before making any decisions. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
