Control Concepts Expands Integration, Customization Services for Manufacturers

AV Control System Solutions Firm Now Develops Custom Apps, APIs, and Control Modules and Offers Support and Consulting Services To Help Manufacturers Meet Goals and Grow Markets

FAIR LAWN, NJ – June 14, 2011 – Control Concepts, Inc. (CCI), a leading independent provider of audiovisual control system solutions, today announced an expanded set of custom development services aimed at manufacturers needing device integration and customization.  Growing demand for these services among manufacturers will be one of the main themes for the company’s show presence at InfoComm 2011 this week at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL.  Control Concepts will demonstrate its audio visual control system solutions and its integration work for the manufacturing community at various locations at InfoComm.

One such partner, Lencore Acoustics Corp., manufactures sound masking and paging systems that increase productivity by alleviating excess workplace noise.  They worked with Control Concepts to develop a custom Crestron AV control interface for their system.  As a result, new Crestron control modules were developed for the Lencore API that enable Crestron programmers to work with Lencore products more easily.

“By partnering with Control Concepts, we’ve achieved faster time-to-market and a higher level of integration, which means our devices deliver more value to a broader spectrum of customers,” said Jodi Jacobs, Lencore’s Director of Marketing.  “Our partnership with Control Concepts makes it quicker and easier to design and implement solutions incorporating our sound masking systems and Crestron’s audio visual control systems.”

“If you’re like most device manufacturers, you need help integrating your products with AV control systems,” said Steve Greenblatt, Control Concepts’ Founder and President.  “There are both standard and proprietary technologies to be concerned with.  By working with us, manufacturers gain more customizable development, more timely response, more control over the end product and the specialized expertise they need.  Our goal in serving as development partner for manufacturers such as Lencore is to help accelerate the growth of their markets.”

The company will have a presence in the booths of manufacturing partners Lencore (Booth #566) and SurgeX (Booth #2216).  Like last year, Control Concepts also will take part in the Crestron Touch Screen Design Gallery in Booth #3220.  InfoComm’s exhibits area will be open from June 15 to June 17.

Currently Control Concepts integrates products with AV control systems from Crestron, AMX and Medialon.  Based on client requests, new AV control system vendors will be added to the roster of supported platforms in the second half of this year, starting with Control4 and Extron.
