ISE 2015 - New Symetrix SymNet Modules For Fast, Flexible Deployment With Crestron 2-Series and 3-Series

The newly enhanced selection of Crestron modules utilises command processor architecture to maximise efficiency and responsiveness.

Simultaneous with the introduction of the updated Version 3.0 SymNet Composer DSP configuration software, Symetrix has announced the availability of a new series of Crestron-certified SymNet control modules for use with the automation solutions provider's 2-Series and 3-Series controllers.

While the Crestron 2-Series comprises a host of products for commercial and home control applications, the 3-Series delivers an integrated building management platform, capable of unifying the various technologies within a commercial building to operate as a single, intelligent system.

Part of a newly enhanced and expanded series, the latest SymNet control modules available for use with these two product ranges comprise: Volume Up/Down Control Module with user limits; Fader Set Control Module; Button Push Module; Preset Execution Module; Controller Receiver Module; Input/Output Selector Module; VoIP Dialler Module and ATI Dialler Module; and Speed Dial, Speed Dial Store, Delete Phone Number and Name Module.

The latest Crestron modules are compatible with SymNet Composer hardware such as SymNet Edge, Radius 12x8 EX, Radius AEC, xControl and the SymNet 2 Line Telephone Interface Card.

A command processor architecture that maximises efficiency and responsiveness is one of the primary strengths of the latest Crestron modules, according to senior product manager Trent Wagner.

"The command processor is responsible for all the data parsing to and from the SymNet DSP, which makes it more efficient for the individual control modules to operate," he explains. "When the control IDs match a particular control module then the controller information is used and updated."

Alongside this functionality, Wagner says that the control modules make it easy to achieve "fast and efficient implementation. Multiple faders or button controls do not significantly slow down the system, while these modules also make it easier for integrators to get a Crestron and SymNet-based design up-and-running without any hassle. We look forward to highlighting the benefits of these new modules to both Crestron and Symetrix customers as we move into what promises to be an extremely exciting 2015 for the SymNet community."

PureLink - HCE III TX/RX: 4K HDR over HDBaseT Extension System w/ Control and Bi-Directional PoE

The HCE III Tx/Rx HDBaseT™ extension system offers full HDMI 2.0 compliance supporting HDR (High Dynamic Range) and 4K@60Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling. Featuring PureLink's proprietary Pr©cis codec, a light compression technology, the HCE III can transport Ultra HD/4K, multi-channel audio, and High Dynamic Range (10 bits support) content over a single CATx cable. The HCE III provides HDMI extension up to 130 feet (40 meters) at Ultra HD/4K and up to 230 ft. (70 meters) at 1080p over category cable with embedded multi-channel audio, CEC pass-through, bi-directional RS-232 and IR control, and PoE - all with zero loss and zero noise. The HCE III Tx/Rx also supports Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD Master Audio plus LCPM (up to 192 kHz). Additionally, the low profile "slim box" enclosure design make the HCE III ideal for limited space installation environments, such as behind flat panel displays and video walls.
