Remote Technologies Incorporated said it is now shipping its AD-4 four-zone distributed audio matrix switcher. Acting as an extension of RTI's control systems, the AD-4 offers a cost-effective, adaptable solution for distributing music throughout a residential or commercial installation, according to the company.

Containing both a matrix switching pre-amp and a built-in 8-channel class D amplifier, the AD-4 distributes up to four analog audio sources to four zones at 25W per channel. It can be augmented with four local audio source inputs with four remote source inputs.

The AD-4 comes in a compact, low-profile design for rack-mount or free-standing installations. Access to audio and control of remote sources is done via the RSP1 accessory wall plate and a single Cat-5 cable. To meet the needs of larger projects, RTI's open architecture enables the control of multiple AD-4 units for additional zones, company officials said.

"Our AD-4 offers a simple way to distribute music from a number of audio sources throughout any residential or commercial installation without breaking the budget," said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI, in a statement. "And when combined with RTI's central processors, remote controls, touch panels, and keypads, audio is only the beginning. Our professional-grade control systems allow every aspect of your environment to work in harmony – from audio and video to lighting, temperature, and more."

The AD-4 is designed to be an extension of an RTI control system. The unit provides the audio switching, amplification, and distribution functions, while RTI central processors and user interfaces manage the audio source control, user input, and status feedback. Information such as the selected source, volume level, and tone control settings are available for each zone, with more advanced information such as song playlists, cover art, and tuner RDS data also available through tight integration with RTI's two-way enabled control products.
