Veritais Ltd, a leading consultancy and supplier of audio-visual systems for luxury yachts, has been nominated for the third year running for a prestigious Control 4 Award for the ‘2015 UK Best Superyacht Installation’.
Control 4’s European Dealer-Distributor Awards will be held during the company’s International Dealer event at ISE (Integrated Systems Europe) Amsterdam in February 2016.
Each year, the Control 4 European Dealer-Distributor Awards recognise members of the Control 4 community for their commitment to forward-thinking business practices, superior customer service and technical support. The awards also honour excellence in design and installation of Control 4 systems. Veritais told Yachting Pages that they were proud to be the winner in 2013 and 2014, and now in 2015.
The award-winning installation was carried out on board the 73m motor yacht Titania, one of the most distinctive yachts in the world. The Control 4 and Veritais partnership delivered a completely new level of audio-visual system, fully controllable via touch screens in every cabin, covering everything from TV and movies to lighting, blinds, air conditioning and CCTV.
The system consisted of independent zones that can play video and audio sources locally, as well as sharing the media stored on the network drive. The main areas each have a Control 4 wireless 7” touch screen to provide full control of the zones’ AV systems, including the TV, amplifier, media player, DVD player, TV lift, lighting, heating and blinds.
The Control 4 main controller manages the entire system, including TVs installed in each cabin and general areas, and music browsing, as well as TV and accessing the main movie server. Control 4 also controls the TVs and speaker/amplifier systems fitted in the owner’s study, massage room, guest cabins, main deck lounge, bridge deck saloon and dining area, where Sony 75” or 49” TVs are installed. Zones can be ‘grouped’ to all output the same music or video in ‘party mode’. The Jacuzzi area and sundeck also have similar AV systems.
Also, touch controls on the Control 4 pads direct lighting and blind control. All lighting ‘scenes’ are programmed into the system, controlled and enabled via the touch screens. Similarly, heating and air conditioning is also controlled. Crew and guests can also see the navigation charts of their location on their individual cabin screens.
Control 4 is one of the world’s largest providers of personalised automation and control solutions, and allows users to control virtually any device in a home or business automatically. Founded in 2003, the company mission is to deliver an elegant and more affordable way to control and automate lighting, music, video, security and energy in a single room or throughout the entire home.
