In today’s world of multimedia A/V systems comprised of numerous components, the need for a centralized control system to operate everything has never been greater.
A control processor is at the heart of any control system. It communicates with the audio/video components to change or alter its status. For example, a projector can be powered on or off, volume raised or lowered and input sources changed via a wall mounted control processor. This installed controller cannot be easily removed from its location and can thus replace the projector’s handheld remote controller which usually disappears after short period of use.
A control system can also be used to manipulate audio within a room. Volume levels of individual microphones and components as well as music source selection for example. It is even possible to control the lighting, HVAC and shades within a room if so desired.
