Xantech plans to introduce its QuickConfig installation/configuration mode for its MX88 IP-enabled multi-zone audio/video controller at InfoComm.
With the new Xantech QuickConfig, the MX88 can be configured for multiple zones and sources throughout a residence without the need of an external computer.
With QuickConfig, the installer can instantly configure the MX88 for multiple zones and sources throughout a residence without the need of an external computer to program the system. The MX88 can be used to control every aspect of the home theater, including audio/video, lighting, and drapes. Additionally, it can be programmed to control the air conditioning/heating system, home security, and video surveillance cameras.
“For the past 40 years, Xantech has been and continues to be at the forefront of control technology and how it shapes, and is shaped by, industry trends,” said Xantech president, Graham Hallett. “We are now seeing increasingly complex AV and IT systems in a growing number of places, and simpler, more intuitive control solutions and setup protocols are an absolute necessity. As AV control systems evolve, Xantech continues to give users products that make their lives easier. Whatever your system components, you turn it on; we make it work.”
QuickConfig mode lets installers do all programming of sources and zones directly via the MX88’s keypad or Xantech’s new SmartPanel LCD touchpanels. For the home theater, sources can include Xantech audio/video components or those from other manufacturers. QuickConfig also configures sources that have metadata, so information such as song title, artist, and genre is clearly displayed.
