New Extra Vegetables Driver for Full Operation of the NVR Touch using the Control4 Remote

Control4In January, the integration of LILIN IP products with Control4 systems was launched. LILIN now announces that users of Control4 systems have full integration of the NVR Touch using the Control4® remote.

The release of the free, Extra Vegetables driver means users can now fully control the NVR Touch from the same platform that controls other appliances in their home or business, all with their Control4remote. Control4ʼs SDDP automatically identifies and loads the correct driver for the NVR Touch, making installation virtually instantaneous. After highlighting and double-clicking the room in which the platform is installed, the driver instantly configures itself into the system. After making any optional settings, the HDMI output simply connects in Composer.

The groundbreaking NVR Touch allows users to benefit from a standalone Network Video Recording solution, meaning Control4 users can view 16 channels of HD (1080P) IP video simultaneously at 25FPS via HDMI. This means users can take advantage of the fantastic real time images of LILIN cameras from the screens around the home, including various moving matrix controls.

With the use of the LILIN UI, users can also manage the numerous features of the NVR, including providing control of live images and accessing all of the NVR menus and playback. A simple date and time search menu allows users to browse through the recordings on the NVR, which can then be exported to DVD or USB if required.

If cameras connected to the NVR have PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) capabilities, then users can control these from the driver. By simply selecting the camera full screen, then using the UI, images can be adjusted using the navigation keys. Users can also recall any of the camera presets at the simple press of a button.

Control4 and Extra Vegetables will both be showcasing the new driver at the 2013 CEDIA Expo in Denver, Colorado, September 25th – 28th. Control4, along with LILIN, can be found at Stand #608, with Extra Vegetables at Stand #644. The free driver is available now to download by visiting or by using the SDDP to install the driver.

The VD022 standalone HD decoder from LILIN is the simple monitoring solution to connect to and display live images from LILIN IP cameras.

In locations where only live video display is required— such as a store entrance, the VD022 provides the solution to connect a camera to your IP system.

Without the HD decoder it would not be possible to view camera images on a monitor unless you used a PC or NVR. In most environments this is not a feasible option; there is either no room for a PC to be positioned next to a monitor or it can’t be built into the surrounding wall or ceiling.

The smart solution to expanding your IP system, the HD decoder allows you to connect a monitor with a single camera or 4 cameras as a quad view. As you can incorporate numerous HD decoders into your IP system it is possible to have multiple monitor locations.

The virtual matrix functionality of the VD022 standalone HD decoder also allows the viewing of Network and Digital Video Recorders from a remote location. Just by adding the device to your existing LILIN system and connecting to a HDMI monitor it is possible to view your 16 channel NVR/DVRs and HD IP cameras.

The LILIN HD Decoder decodes full 1080P video at up to 30FPS. The unit can be controlled by an IR remote control, keyboard, web interface or touch screen monitor – so changing your displayed cameras is easy.

“Fundamentals and IP systems covered, real demonstrations on working products, genuine information on all IP hardware, with no hard sell,” just one of the ways IP Bootcamp was described by participating installers last week. Further comments included, ‘a very good insight into IP workings and operations, easy going with a touch of humor’, ‘a well presented hands-on session’ and ‘excellent, most useful, ten out of ten’. The testimonials provided by attendees confirmed the value of the free training session; guests left having developed their knowledge, increased their confidence, and felt ready to enter the demystified world of IP. It is therefore no surprise that IP Bootcamp has become a hot topic for discussion within the industry.

Having been greeted with hot bacon rolls and drinks, attendees filed into a room specifically set up to accommodate the practical session. Multiple workstations equipped with network cables, RJ-45 crimp tools, testers, HD IP cameras, NVR’s, switches and injectors were set, each enabling hands on access for all attendees throughout. Ian Leroux, LILIN’s product trainer kicked off with an introduction addressing the difference between analogue and IP before going on to explain the fundamentals and architecture of IP.

IP Bootcamp was designed after LILIN made a decision to help train security installers and increase the awareness of IP video in the market. With an aim of training 1000 installers within the next year, LILIN are committed to helping installers understand the simplicity of IP, removing the fear and improving the adoption of IP throughout the UK.

If you missed out this time, fear not as some dates for 2013 have now been confirmed. IP Bootcamp will continue to take place in further UK cities next year and remains completely free. The second roadshow will travel to London, Brighton, Nottingham and Liverpool with monthly sessions held at the UK Headquarters in Milton Keynes. Each location is strictly limited to 25 attendees and are quickly filled so call 0870 120 5550, email or visit today to reserve your place.
