Fusion Research Ovation Streamer Now Savant Compatible
November 27, 2013 by Grant Clauser

A home control and entertainment system is incomplete without a decent media manager and distribution product. There are tons of said products on the market, but not all of them are compatible with the control system you want in your home.

Fusion Research just announced that its Ovation music streaming and distribution system is now fully two-way compatible with Savant home control systems. The new Savant driver, available for free, replaces the previous Squeezebox driver (which is no longer supported by Savant). The new driver was designed to work with the Ovation line, including the wireless players. Marco Fedrizz of Automation Lifestyles worked to create the new Savant driver.

Drivers for Control4, AMX, Elan g!, Crestron and RTI systems, as well as iOS and Android apps are also available.

“We have many Savant dealers who currently use our audio solutions, but this new driver is specific to Fusion and will be even faster and more responsive then the old generic Squeezebox driver.” According to Fusion VP of Sales Ingo Schmoldt.
