AV Software and Solutions
We partner with Technology Managers, Consultants, System Integrators, and Manufacturers to design and deliver a full spectrum of AV software and solutions.
We offer an array of control system programming services as well as management & maintenance once your AV systems are installed.
It’s not enough to simply provide a user with basic functionality using typical features and still call that a custom integrated system.
By working with us, you gain more customizable development, more timely response, more control over your end product.
For manufacturers, we look to provide module development and middleware development
With specialty services from Control Concepts like systems engineering, audio DSP programming, and field commissioning, we empower you to deliver more.
Technology managers, consultants, and integrators should consider the value of hiring a third party to commission their systems to identify open items and ensure performance standards are met.
As part of our specialty engineering services, Control Concepts offers AV strategic planning to its technology partners.
Programmed vs. Configured Solutions: Which Approach is Best?
AV control system programming is still a highly-valued offering with clear advantages, but its future is becoming more ambiguous as the industry’s understanding, needs, and expectations evolve. While many clients value a high degree of customization, they are burdened with the time constraints and costs of highly customized offerings. As a result, many are gravitating to “off the shelf” or “configured” solutions that do not require the perceived challenges of implementation, time requirements, or expenses.
Our Insights from Crestron Masters 2017
Several of our Control Concepts team members came back from the recent Crestron Masters 2017 event ready to share what they learned about technologies and products in the AV pipeline.
The Cost of Not Having Control Modules
As the industry moves toward more configurable, “no programming required” solutions, the availability of device drivers or control modules (terminology depends on the specific system) compatible with the popular control platforms (Crestron, AMX, Extron, RTI, etc.) is greater than ever for AV manufacturers.
