Savant Releases Version 8.0 of Pro Software

Savant has released Pro software version 8.0. The new release includes firmware updates, new licensing plans, Sonos integration, native streaming media from Autonomic, a new Pro Remote, and vast improvements to the user interface.

The new Savant 8.0 software includes an enhanced user interface for the Savant app. Amongst other changes, Savant has “flattened” out the interface so users can “see everything in the house from the home screen,” noted Tim McInerney, director of product marketing for Savant.

The company has also recently partnered with Sonos, now named as an elite partner. The designation means that the two manufacturers work to ensure that products become mutually beneficial to installer and end users. As a result, Savant 8.0 now fully integrates with the popular range of wireless audio products.

The Savant Smart Host with 8.0 will also double as an Autonomic media player, one of the most popular media-management services among home-technology integrators. Users can now tap into music from all of Autonomic’s streaming media partners including Spotify, Tidal, Pandora, SiriusXM, Rhapsody, Slacker, Napster, Tunein and iTunes.

The new Savant 4K Video Input Module will also now be available and it supports HDCP 2.2. 

The latest version of Pro software also arrives alongside a new Savant remote.
