Porritt Outlines Russound, Colorado vNet Directions
Russound will deliver through mid-year a new C-Series digital media streamer, a new local-source power amplifier and enhancements, including Apple AirPlay and Android support,to its Collage Powerline multi-room audio and intercom system just prior to the 2011 CEDIA Expo.
The product additions and performance boosts to Collage dovetail with the addition to the Russound team of Tom McCarthy as vice president of product development and Mike Anderson as director of product development, said Charlie Porritt, Russound CEO. With these moves, he said, “we are building on our legacy and leveraging it to move forward.”
Porritt explained that the company’s focus would be “on delivering new products” in future in line with market trends that show consumer desire for distributed A/V, simplified home theater integration, and the increasing need to connect with “the cloud” for access to content.
