phones, iPods, tablets, PC music libraries, in (several different) clouds,
internet radio, cable boxes, Blu-ray. Don't deal with the hassles of

play when needed. Video Storm's NBX010 makes it easy to integrate all these
sources with your in-wall speaker systems. Take your audio matrix to

Dual channel output option
NBX010 now has the option to add a 2nd output channel with the purchase
of an optional software upgrade license. Select the "2nd stream license"
when purchasing this device to preinstall, or purchase this later as a
downloadable field upgrade.
On NBX010, you will also need to purchase a USB digital
extender to enable the second audio stream.
The NBX010 has the following capabilities:
Network audio rendering
A network audio renderer is a virtual speaker or group of
speakers that other applications can connect to and use for audio output.
NBX010 supports multiple audio streaming formats to enable compatibility with
most devices. One or two independent audio renderer
streams can be played at once.
NBX010 has a revolutionary patent
pending algorithm that allows you to control an
external matrix directly through Bonjour or Upnp. This feature
allows you to customize up to 48 different audio groups that can be directly
selected by the user when connecting to NBX010. Each of these groups can
trigger a unique matrix switching function which will intelligently route the
route that stream to all the appropriate speakers in one step! See the
link above for full details on how this will greatly simplify the user
Some examples of how you can use the audio renderer channels:
Streaming audio from your smart phone to your in wall speaker system (all phones
supported either natively or through free apps)Streaming audio from your
home media server to your in wall speaker systemStreaming audio from your
Logitech media server to your in wall speaker systemAudio backchannel support
