Chowmain Software and Apps has released the Artison Nano Backpack P-5 driver for Control4.
Backpack is the world’s smallest AV amplifier and aims to lead the way in redefining media system design. It’s beautifully crafted from extruded aluminium and satin black ABS plastic; this vanishingly small AV amp is well-featured and powerful enough for most media room applications.
Installing backpack locally, with the TV will bring enormous savings in rack space, cabling and complexity, allowing installers to deliver a more cost effective and reliable system
