CORE 3 is the perfect fusion of multi-room, high resolution audio and intelligent automation processing for mid-size projects, whether residential, commercial or retail. Powered by a next-generation multi-core processor, CORE 3 delivers a new level of speed and performance for instantaneous, interactive control to all the systems on the job, and a beautiful, interactive 4K on-screen menu. For entertainment, CORE 3 includes new, higher quality DACs (digital to analog converters) to power two analog audio outputs, one digital audio output, and an HDMI output. Simultaneous, independent audio streams are provided for each output by Ryff, the built-in highresolution audio server, allowing customers to listen to their local music library, or stream from a variety of leading music services, and AirPlay-enabled devices. CORE 3 includes a variety of I/O to automate audio and video, lighting, climate control, door locks, and other devices controlled by IP, infrared (IR), serial, ZigBee and Zwave*. The versatility of the CORE 3 makes it an easy-add at the head end with the included rack mount ears, or a powerful remote-location addition with the option of AC or PoE+ for power, and an Ethernet output to provide network connection to another device. With OvrC Pro built in, CORE will be the foundation for networking monitoring and management, giving you access to the entire network of IP devices - including third-party products - for remote connections, device and network configurations, and troubleshooting. Those features, paired with diagnostic data, make remote support easy, eliminating unnecessary service calls, which enables you to streamline your business and tackle more jobs – all from the OvrC web or mobile app.
