Los Gatos, CA–Anchor Bay has announced its membership in Crestron’s Integrated Partner Program and the availability of a new module for simplified, hassle-free integration of Anchor Bay’s DVDO iScan line of video processors into Crestron’s automation systems.Paul Fitzpatrick was honored by IPRO for his lifetime achievement.
Aimed at saving integrators both time and money, the new module is designed to make it easy to implement Anchor Bay’s video processors within any Crestron automation system. Once installed, the new module allows dealers to provide access to the full range of iScan functionality, including power, input selection, and many other controls, via a Crestron touch-panel or control system. Some of these controls include both input and output aspect ratio control so that users can easily define how they present images on their displays. Direct access to all picture controls and video processing modes also is provided, allowing the user to fine-tune the image from any source.
“We are pleased to have had the opportunity to partner with Crestron in developing this solution for custom installers who implement our products into state-of-the-art systems,” said Craig Soderquist, CEO at Anchor Bay. “With this module in place, installers can offer their customers unmatched image quality and can do so as quickly and as easily as possible. This saves installers both time and money by allowing them to move on to the next installation.”
“Today’s newest plasmas, projectors, and progressive-scan displays require the highest quality video processing,” said Chris Wildfoerster, director of business development, Crestron. “This new module provides dealers who integrate these display components with full support when working with Anchor Bay’s powerful line of DVDO video processors and ensures Anchor Bay solutions quickly and seamlessly integrate with any Crestron control solution.”
The new module supports all DVDO iScan VPx0 products, including the new VP50PRO, and does not require any software updates to existing Anchor Bay products.
