4K UHD A/V Distribution Switch honored for innovative design and engineering

New York, NY, November 11th, 2015 — Control4 Corporation (NASDAQ: CTRL), a leading global provider of smart home solutions, today announced that it has been named a CES 2016 Innovation Awards Honoree for its 10 source, 10 zone 4K UHD Video Distribution Switch featuring HDCP 2.2 compliance. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 27 product categories. Entries are evaluated on their engineering, aesthetic and design qualities, intended use/function, user value, and comparison to other products in the marketplace.

The new line of Control4 4K UHD Matrix Switches provides the ability to distribute 4K content, including copy-protected content, to every room in the Control4 Smart Home without the need for additional hardware or software. All Control4 4K UHD Matrix Switches are HDCP 2.2 compliant, meeting the standards set by content creators for copy protection. This ensures that Control4 customers do not receive the black screen produced by non-compliant systems trying to play copy-protected content.

“Products that are selected as CES Innovation Honorees demonstrate an incredible level of design and engineering in a field where the bar is set extremely high,” said Martin Plaehn, Control4 Chairman and CEO. “We believe our 4K entertainment solutions exhibit this to the fullest, and we are proud to have that fact validated by a preeminent authority on the subject.”

The prestigious CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), the producer of CES 2016, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.

The Control4 10×10 4K UHD A/V Matrix Switch will be displayed at CES 2016 in the Innovation Awards Showcase within the Sands Expo at CES Tech West, which runs January 6-9, 2016, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

03 numbers are not premium rate or expensive to call. In fact OFCOM have made it a rule that all telcos must charge no more than they would for normal 01 or 02 numbers and they must include 03 numbers in the same call packages as they do for 01 and 02 numbers.

03 numbers are not like 0845 or 0870 which were always meant to be local and national, but retained their high prices as normal calls got much cheaper. The rules are clear that they are treated like normal numbers to call.

Whilst 03 numbers work like 01 and 02 numbers there is no geographic area associated with them, they are UK-Wide.

Why? You may ask! Well, for normal geographic area codes starting 01 and 02 a telco needs a block of numbers. We have blocks in many areas including London (020), Reading (0118), Bracknell (01344) and a few others. But there are hundreds of telcos each getting a block of at least 1000 numbers in each area code. This is very wasteful and means we are running out. With 03 each telco gets one block which covers the whole country and only when that is full do they get another. The 03 number space is vast and allows every telco to have as many numbers as they need for many years to come.

Many companies offering services nationally have no real need for a local number and so 03 are ideal. They are cheaper to run than 0800 but not ripping off customers like 0870 or premium numbers.

Even individuals would like to have a number that does not change when they move house, and 03 numbers are ideal for that.
