URC dealers finally have a good music solution for homes controlled by URC. Now, as a dealer, you can easily supply your customers with a reasonably priced music server.
Setup is simple and fast, using URC's Accelerator® software. Download the appropriate CasaTunes Streamer Module Package or the CasaTunes System Module Package (see below). The Module Packages include helpful documentation. You can always check for the latest versions on our downloads page.
With the Streamer Module, CasaTunes can supply up to 4 totally independent streams of audiophile quality music.
With the System Module you can integrate a complete CasaTunes music system into the URC environment. The System Module even comes with a tool to automatically pull in CasaTunes setup configuration, minimizing the amount of work needed for integration.
The CasaTunes music server can be configured as a music streamer, or as part of a complete music system.
Music Streamers - If you have previously used audio streamers in your projects, this is the mode you are probably familiar with. In this mode, each audio stream is an independent music player that can play music from internet music services, like Spotify, from local music stored on a PC, or from NAS device on the local network, or a stream from an iOS device via AirPlay.
A music streamer has no switching, volume or power control, just pure, independent streams coming out of the music server at pre-amp levels.
For music streamers use the CasaTunes Streamer Module for URC.
Music Systems - When using your music server as part of a CasaTunes music system, your music server controls and supply streams to the CasaTunes 6X6 matrix amplifier, as well as other third party audio distribution systems, such as those from Audio Authority, Channel Vision, Leviton, NuVo, RTI, Russound, SpeakerCraft, and Vanco.
Use the System Module and once you Accelerate, the combination of CasaTunes and the CasaTunes or third party audio distribution system act as a complete self-contained music system.
You can also use the System Module with our legacy CasaTunes CT Systems. These systems behave like regular CasaTunes music systems, but uses software to implement switching. With CasaTunes CT Systems, switching between internal streams and external outputs is built right into the music server software.
For music systems use the CasaTunes System Module for URC.
Each stream supplies the following to inputs on your AV Receiver or audio distribution switch:
With CasaTunes, in addition to listening to your disc based music, you can select from a wide variety of different music services, including Deezer, Mircosoft Groove, SHOUTcast, Spotify, Tidal, TuneIn and more.
Using our CasaTunes Air technology you can stream music from any music App on iOS devices to any stream.
Each CasaTunes music server with 3 or more streams, includes a large disc for storing your music. Customers can copy their entire music collection onto their CasaTunes music server, ensuring their music is always available when they want it.
Included in the module are complete UIs for URC's Total Control TKP-7000, TRC-1080 and URC's Mobile apps for Android and iOS phones and tablets. In addition, the module supports one-way comands for older devices, to allow pausing, playing, next, previous and stop functions
Regardless of which CasaTunes music system or legacy CT System you are using, the System Module makes it easy to integrate with URC. When done, you have the full functionality of the Streaming Module, plus:.
