With automation controllers designed to run projects of any size, having a system failure can be catastrophic. In a large project, the failure of the main controller or processor could mean that lights don’t work, security integration fails, surveillance cameras would be unreachable, and all the home’s entertainment systems would also go offline. To ensure that these mega-projects keep working through either snow, rain, heat or gloom of night, Control4 unveiled its latest flagship controller, the CA-10 Automation Controller.

It should come as no surprise that CEDIA is filled with passive soundbars — custom installers generally prefer to go the passive route, which allows them to install a bar snugly in or on the wall below a flat-panel TV, with power coming from a separate, rack-mounted amplifier. It should also come as no surprise that passive soundbars are part of Paradigm's extensive speaker mix, which now includes the new Millenia LP Trio that made its debut at CEDIA 2019.

Launched at the high-end Munich audio show this past May, Lexicon displayed its new SL-1 active loudspeaker at CEDIA. The flagship system takes a radically different approach to providing either a pinpoint audio image or room filling sound by employing a ring of individually amplified and controlled drivers. The speakers can be freely positioned and use advanced beam steering technology to aim and focus the sweet spot almost anywhere in the room to ensure the best possible sound at the listening position.
