(November 13, 2019) AudioControl has partnered with the industry’s top-tier voice control system, Josh.ai, to bring effortless hands-free control to AudioControl anchored entertainment systems. Known for its natural language capabilities and privacy-focused design, Josh.ai brings significant advantages to AudioControl products, including essential function controls such as volume control, input switching, power toggling, single and multi-source zone routing, and auto-discovery of other AudioControl capable gear.
“We’re thrilled to align with AudioControl as a fellow innovator in our industry,” said Alex Capecelatro, CEO of Josh.ai. “The strength of our partnerships and device integrations are extremely important as we recommend robust solutions for luxury clients who want performance as well as reliability. Our goal with Josh.ai is to deliver a magical user experience, and partnering with AudioControl is another step toward that vision.”
At launch, AudioControl's Director Series amps, Concert AVRs, and Maestro Pre/Pros will auto-populate within Josh.ai web portal, expediting integration once any of these models are connected to a capable network. And when it comes to real-world high-level voice control, owners of Direct Series amps will have the ability to play specified media at specified volume levels to connected zones around a home. Additionally, Josh.ai gives owners access to music sourced from all available streaming sources (assuming a compatible device is in the equipment chain).
“AudioControl is committed to bringing the best possible entertainment experience to consumers through our integration partners,” explained AudioControl CEO Alex Camara. “I see this collaboration with Josh.ai as an opportunity to add the convenience of voice control to our Director Series amplifiers as well as our Concert and Maestro Series theater platforms, merging the ultimate in audio and video performance with advanced, intuitive operability for end-users.”
