TU Delft project sparks Nureva, Extron cooperation
When Netherlands university TU Delft wanted to streamline operation of its Nureva audio systems through Extron touchpanels the two manufacturers stepped in to help.

As a result of the cooperation, Nureva has announced an integration between its audio systems and Extron scaling presentation switchers with integrated IPCP Pro control processors.

Built by developers at Extron and Nureva and supported by TU Delft, the integration between Extron control processors and Nureva devices was supported by the Nureva Developer Toolkit, which provides cloud-based APIs to enable system control integrations. The integration allows users to mute and unmute the audio and adjust volume, treble and bass from the Extron touchpanels. Users can also enable or disable the Nureva Active Zone Control feature, adjust the microphone pickup zone and set the active zone for full or partial coverage. The Nureva-certified control system driver supports all Nureva audio systems and is part of the portfolio of integrations available from the Extron website.

As part of the development process, Nureva implemented a new authentication method better suited to hardware communications. The result has been that instructors at TU Delft are able to easily control the Nureva audio system in their classrooms through a familiar interface.

Rainer Stiehl, Extron’s vice-president of marketing, Europe, said: “It’s been exciting working with Nureva to provide enhanced control of their audio systems and help them integrate with the systems at TU Delft.

“The custom TouchLink Pro touchpanel interface displays a broad variety of audio parameters, all intuitively displayed and easily controlled from anywhere on the network.”

Marco Buitenhuis, an AV/IT specialist at TU Delft, said: “When we introduced the Nureva systems at TU Delft, we wanted to keep things simple by providing a consistent experience for our teachers. We achieved that. The process was simple and any issues were quickly recognised and dealt with.”
