Bose Partners with Control Concepts to Offer Prompt Effective Integration of the Videobar VB1


Bose Professional has enlisted the expertise of Control Concepts to build and support modules, drivers, and plugins for several of their popular product lines, beginning with the Videobar VB1. This partnership provides the integration dealers the benefits of time savings, ease of control and robust, reliable performance when implementing AV control system platforms using the solutions supported by Control Concepts.

These modules, drivers, and plugins offer integrators and programmers a guarantee that the premium audio and video features supported by the VB1 API will be seamlessly implemented while eliminating the burden of complex software development on the programmer.

“Our system integration dealers strongly requested control system modules, drivers, and plugins. Our Bose Videobar VB1 is being installed in conferencing spaces that include entire AV room control,” shared Shawn Watts, Bose’s Senior Product Marketing Manager. “Having the middleware solutions developed by Control Concepts allows those integrating the VB1 with control platforms a smooth process with predictable performance.”
