Sony Introduces Whole-Home Electronics System

Audio/Video Can be Distributed To Up To 13 Rooms

Sony Electronics is to answering the needs of the home construction market with the addition of a new whole-home, high performance A/V entertainment system targeted at the semi-custom and custom home markets.

Building on the success of Sony’s New Home Solution line of installation-ready products, the expandable system (NHS-3020) fills the home with a range of advanced home entertainment options covering distribution, control, source and display.

The new system includes discrete control and the support of audio and video content for a 7.1 surround sound home theater, and up to 12 additional rooms of audio and video.

The solution incorporates five sources: a 400-disc DVD changer, a 400-disc CD changer, a combination DVD recorder and VCR, a 5-disc DVD player and an AM/FM tuner. With the ability to play each source independently, the system can store a total of 406 DVDs and 400 CDs. By including all of these source devices, separate movies or music can be played back in any of the connected rooms.

Up to three additional components can be added to customize the system. Extra sources can include two HD sources, such as an HD cable or satellite box and Blu-ray Disc player, as well as a standard definition source like a security camera.

“This whole-home solution provides custom and semi-custom builders and integrators the ability to separate themselves from the competition, offering homebuyers an integrated solution that is ready to use when they move-in,” said Neal Manowitz, director of marketing for Sony Electronics’ Consumer Systems and Applications division. “Our New Home Solutions have been instrumental in expanding installed-AV beyond the traditional custom installation market.”

Having been programmed, pre-wired and built into a Middle Atlantic rack, the entire system comes ready to incorporate into a home. Removing thousands of dollars in integration cost, the integrator simply pre-wires the home using standard wiring and then plugs in the system. A choice of Sony’s industry leading high-definition televisions, such as the BRAVIA LCD TV, Grand WEGA rear projection TV or the VPL-VW100 SXRD based projector, is included.

Additionally, a pre-programmed LCD touch-screen remote for the home theater and in-wall LCD keypads with separate remote make the system easy to use for the homebuyer from virtually any room in the home.

To address the needs of the new home construction market, Sony is providing a one-year limited warranty with in-home diagnostic service and advance exchange when necessary, along with and also a dedicated toll free hotline for consumers to call with operational questions.

The system is currently shipping with an estimated installed price to new homebuyers ranging from $20,000 to $40,000. More information about this system is available online at www.sony.com/newhome.
