Lencore Acoustics reviews Control Concepts’ work on the Spectra iNet

Fair Lawn, NJ—June 5, 2012

Control Concepts recently worked with Lencore Acoustics to increase performance and compatibility of the manufacturer’s Spectra iNet to make the iNet more Crestron friendly; add custom features; consult on development; and increase capability and performance with third party control.  Control Concepts developed a module to meet Crestron certified standards, increased capability and improved performance with third party control.

Lencore shares thoughts on the experience of working with Control Concepts on the Spectra iNet:

Since 1990, Lencore has been providing acoustical products and sound masking / paging systems to Fortune 1000 companies around the world.  In this capacity, we have continually developed and grown our product and system lines.  Several years ago, with the emergence of our network system line, we saw a tremendous opportunity to provide the AV industry with  a product line that could help them  move well beyond the boardroom and enable them to address audio distribution and sound quality throughout entire buildings and campuses.  However, to fully integrate into the AV world, it was evident that we needed to interface with key control platforms.  When we inquired about who was the best in this arena, one name kept coming up, Control Concepts.

As a leading audiovisual control system solutions provider, Control Concepts quickly grasped our technology and the programming requirements needed to create a successful integration for our system and the Crestron and AMX control platforms.  We required certain customization for several of our market verticals and we wanted the chance to not only provide clients with the application, but to have a live working demonstration of this in time for an InfoComm debut.  Working around the clock Control Concepts created the modules we needed to showcase our system and control capabilities for the network system in corporate offices as well as healthcare facilities.  They even provided us with on-site, trade show assistance with our module and training on the system components and the interface.

When we launched the application on Crestron, it was well received and the feedback we have received from AV System Integrators continues to support what we already know.  The integration works seamlessly and is intuitive.  Scalability within the system to incorporate other technologies is possible and we are exploring additional projects with Control Concepts for a variety of other applications.

This year at InfoComm12 we look forward to showcasing our work and encourage all attendees of the show to attend one of our informative booth tours where we will provide an overview of our masking, paging, background music and mass notification systems and our integration with Crestron and AMX.  To schedule your booth tour, please contact Lencore at info@lencore.com.

The Control Concepts’ staff members are dedicated professionals that are highly motivated, experienced and truly understand both sides of the process.  From a manufacturer perspective and from a client user interface, they are well versed in providing innovative programs with solid engineering practices  that clearly hit the mark for their clients.
