Sylmar, CA–Xantech Corp. has joined the AMX Device Discovery Program, hoping to reduce the time required to integrate Xantech’s MRC88 and CM8X8 AV matrix controllers with AMX NetLinx control systems.
Manufacturers like Xantech integrate AMX Device Discovery technology into their products to make it easier for system integrators to program these products into AMX control systems. By teaming with AMX, Xantech will be able offer its dealers a smooth integration experience.
“AMX and Xantech both have a long history of successful installations,” said Rick Seegull, director of business development at Xantech. “We look forward to working on future projects with AMX and in the end, the installer wins with a versatile platform that fits any system needs.”
When integrating a serial or IP device that supports Device Discovery, such as Xantech’s MRC88 or CM8X8 AV controller/amplifier, the AMX control system recognizes the device, automatically loads the appropriate module and installs the new device automatically, thus significantly reducing integration time.
The MRC88CTL is an eight-source, eight-zone AV distribution amplifier that allows the control and distribution of eight separate source components to eight different zones, with the capacity to expand to up to 16 zones of control and distribution. It allows control of source components through both RS232 and IR. The CM8X8 is a commercial rack mount version of the MRC88 with BNC video connections.
