Sony Android TV Driver for ELAN
What does this driver do?
This driver allows for the integration and control of a Sony Android TV from within ELAN.
This driver has been reworked July 2022 to use HTTP REST API.
How does this driver differ from the standard one in ELAN?
This driver was created following requests from dealers and makes use of a more advanced API that’s proven to be more responsive and reliable to ensure a fantastic end-user experience.
- Feedback: The display driver is able to update ELAN with the current active input, meaning that if the user swaps from an app to a HDMI input, the ELAN interface will update to match.

The Intrinsic difference
Our drivers are all developed in-house, in the UK so you can be sure of the highest reliability and responsiveness when updates are required. We never use open source code or code libraries. All of our drivers are thoroughly tested in-house as well as externally through our Beta Programme before being offered on our website.
All of our drivers/modules are supported free of charge through our Online Support system. We offer comprehensive support for all of our software that requires the purchase of a license key for as long as they are listed on the Intrinsic Dev website. If it’s your first time installing a driver or if you believe there is a technical problem simply submit a ticket via our Online Support system.
We also offer Enhanced Remote Support for each control platform. This support is charged in 30 minute intervals where we are pleased to advise on anything that falls outside of standard driver queries, including, but not limited to, driver installation, wider system integration/programming, general training and system design.
All of our software is available to download free of charge but will require licensing to function. Unless specifically noted only one license is required per controller/processor. You can run as many devices as required up to the limit supported by your chosen control platform.
All of our drivers/modules come with comprehensive Integration Notes to ensure the easiest possible set up of our software. Many also have Installation Tutorial videos to further assist you. Please ensure you refer to these resources each time you install a new driver/module.
