AVPro Edge Strengthens The Interoperability of MXNet with Crestron and Q-SYS

By working with AV Software Developer Control Concepts, AVPro Edge ensures ease of control programming with the release of a Crestron Module and Q-SYS Plugin Suite.

In a competitive market of AV signal distribution, AVPro Edge builds upon its reputation of being a feature-rich, reliable, scalable, and easily implemented solution that can be counted on by integrators and programmers alike with the new release of Crestron module and Q-SYS plugin suites for their MXNet AV-over-IP product line.  These software integrations developed in collaboration with Control Concepts, Inc. boast the gamut of product capabilities while supporting ease of control and are backed by support for programmers who are implementing them in their custom projects.

“Control Concepts did a very good job clarifying the project scope and requirements before development. As a result of their consistent communication, the project schedule and estimated development were on par with what we planned,” shared Cody Hein, Audio Video Test Engineer at AVPro Global.

“Our relationship with AVPro Edge did not happen overnight.  They did their due diligence to ensure that we could be the partner they needed to support the needs of their clients today and into the future,” remarked Steve Greenblatt, Control Concepts’ President and Founder.

Since a major selling point of AVoIP solutions is their ability to scale and support virtually unlimited numbers of endpoints, Control Concepts worked with AVPro Edge to design a control solution that would align with these needs.

“The Crestron module and Q-SYS plugin suites were not developed to work for just a set of encoders and decoders, they were architected to be scalable envisioning real-world use cases,” added Greenblatt.  “Using our command processor and component model, device communication is streamlined, and overhead is managed to allow for the number of endpoints to grow exponentially without putting an unnecessary burden on the control processor or network traffic.”

As Hein stated, “It is worth the investment to have a good partner who understands the needs of programmers.”

The collaboration of AVPro Edge and Control Concepts ensures integrators can feel at ease specifying complex, reliable solutions with the MXNet that are not only feature-rich but also easy to control with Crestron and Q-SYS.
