With component video becoming less available on video devices it’s time for a way to switch video via a Russound RNET based controller. The key to achieving this simply and with minimum fuss is to use the Myro:Bridge. The Myro:Bridge (amongst other things) has been developed to enable Russound controllers to automatically synchronise zone/source switching via the Rnet bus, with a selection of HDMI switchers.
This combination will allow you to set up which Russound zones you want to be mapped to which HDMI port. Currently the unit supports a wide range of switchers from Atlona to WyreStorm (contact s for full details). All you need is any controller than has Rnet capability and you have the ability to offer your customers HD content with their Russound Multi-room system, all with minimal fuss and programming. The Myro:Bridge has a neat and simple HTML matrix configuration page, allowing you to simply configure which sources you require where...it's never been that easy before!
Once configured you don't have to have a series of complex macro commands programmed into a remote - and there is no need for a third party control system synchronising everything up. Once it is configured it does all the hard-work for you and simply allows any source configured to be sent to the desired zone on your Russound system when you change a source on your Russound system...Brilliant!
The Myro:Bridge works so you can have HDMI distribution beautifully synchronised on your existing or next Russound audio project as well!
