Wireless Control Music On Boats Via Tablets/Smartphones
- Less wiring needed
- Independent control while on the water
- Waterproof to IPx5
The Fusion Entertainment System, designed for the marine industry, is claimed to offer stand-alone features for trailer boats as well as expandability in big boats, like iPad wireless control.
Boat Builders and owners will find that wiring is reduced, as Fusion Head Units and remotes connect to, plus communicate through, the NMEA 2000 Bus or Ethernet already in many boats. Users can wirelessly control the 700 System on a boat, using iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or PC and Android products.
Fusion’s 700 series will operate stand-alone in smaller boats, using the in-built colour display. Optional wired remotes and amplifiers can be added, plus both models are True Marine, certified waterproof to IPx5. You can control the volume and subwoofers in four listening zones. For example, you can have low volume in the Saloon, whilst loud music livens up the party in the aft Zone.
Fusion-Link software enables a compatible Multifunction Display (MFD) to become the entertainment control centre. Skippers use the MFD large screen to control one or more 700 Series audiovisual systems with four speaker zones each. Fusion’s head unit can be installed elsewhere, if the helm has little space.
Entertainment and news sources are, AM/FM/VHF/iPod, iPhone, USB, CD, DVD, Video, plus MP3 players (Aux in). Both 700 Series models receive Marine VHF channels, with scan or user presets and squelch.
