NuVo has announced a new firmware release for its digital Player Portfolio that removes the audio delay when connecting with TVs through the player’s local line input. This improvement is said to eliminate all AV synchronisation issues and expands the number of ways the Player Portfolio can be integrated into a home’s entertainment system. The firmware release, version 1.9, is compatible with both the P100 and P200 wireless/wired players, as well as both 3-zone wired players, the P3100 and P3500. It is available for download immediately.
“The audio quality of our Player Portfolio components has been highly praised by users and reviewers since its introduction,” said Walt Zerbe, Product Manager. “This feature has been one of the most highly requested by our dealers, and we’re happy announce we’re now able to use the local line input to perfectly match our superior audio quality with the video from a local TV or other video source.”
According to Zerbe, when a video source is connected to a player through its local line in jack and is played in that local listening zone, there will be no perceptible delay between the audio and video. If additional zones are added to the listening group, the system detects the change and automatically switches to Global line in mode.
