Bringing together various Key Digital products in one education AV system
MOUNT VERNON, NY – Key Digital, Inc. – September 25, 2018 – Key Digital, the leaders in digital video and control systems, invite integrators and installers to check out how easily the Key Digital hardware and software ecosystem fits in to all education applications with special focus on KD-AMP220 compact digital amplifier.
While small in size, the KD-AMP220 packs a big punch with its powerfully engineered configuration and is the perfect compact but robust amplifier solution for an education market setting. With the KD-AMP220 Class D digital amplifier, Key Digital offers a beginning-to-end solution for the audio visual needs of efficient and productive meeting spaces, lecture halls, and classrooms just large enough that the speech enforcement might be necessary. It is easily controlled via the remote control with an included IR sensor that may be mounted right under the television. The amplifier’s small form factor is a huge benefit since it presents the option of installing it right behind the display. KD-AMP220 is fully controllable for volume faders, level adjustment, and more via RS-232.
“The KD-AMP220 has IR control hard wired 3.5 so that if this product is mounted behind the television you can have a wired sensor installed and point the remote at it to control volume and muting levels. It is also RS-232 full discrete controllable for integration in the Compass Control Pro system or other control systems supporting discrete volume levels like volume faders and sliders,” said Jonathon Ferry, National Training Manager for Key Digital.
“Key Digital is at the core of fully integrated systems, and with our compact KD-AMP220 integrators have really noticed the attention to detail our engineers put into our hardware to help their installs go smoothly,” said Dan O’Donnell, Key Digital’s Vice President of Sales – North America. “All over the world everyone is investing tremendously into technology in the classroom whether it’s K-12, higher education, or distance learning. Key Digital has long been a go-to partner for the education market, and we’re taking technology that instructors, professors, teachers, and the students are using every day and we’re giving a very easy user experience with the best results. The great thing about our product line is that we have the end-to-end solution. We can offer the video, audio, and control and having Key Digital’s cohesive hardware and software ecosystem delivers the first time every time.”
For control in the classroom, Key Digital’s Compass Control Pro is a fully integrated control system built from the ground up to use iOS devices to replace traditional control interfaces. The cost-effective software suite excels in video control functionality. There are no restrictions on the design and layout of a Compass Control interface – if it can be envisioned, it can be executed! Compass Control Pro also instantly integrates components from Compass Alliance Partners to create a simple plug-n-play system. Key Digital has partnered with Lutron, Leviton, Honeywell, KNX, and many additional industry leaders to enable Compass Control Pro’s control drivers and pre-configured GUI templates to streamline system development and reduced programming time. Integrators and installers can download the Compass Control Pro free iOS app from the App Store and use the demo mode to immediately see how the intuitive and sleek pre-built GUI can work in their applications. Everything can be customized, but by selecting any of the seven vertical markets integrators and installers can get a feel for how Compass Control Pro is the right choice for control.
