The first of these options, the ARC-3 wall panel remote, was introduced to the systems integrator community at ISE 2015. Arriving in a single SKU with both surface- and flush-mount capabilities, ARC-3 incorporates a brand new capacitive touch interface with LED feedback, as well as a multi-lingual graphics-capable OLED display that is expected to resonate strongly with Symetrix’ global customer base.
The second new option is the ARC-WEB browser-based dialler, which allows owners of iPhones, iPads, Android phones, tablets and network-enabled computers to control audio via embedded web servers running on SymNet Edge and SymNet Radius DSPs.
“With this option, end-users can control volume, mute, source selection and other critical parame-ters of their sound systems from the smartphones and tablets they already own,” says Trent Wag-ner, senior product manager, Symetrix. “There is also the option to recall various presets from the ARC-WEB dialler, giving you all the functionality you require to, for example, run a full conference session from your smart-device or desktop browser.”
Following on from its earlier update of Crestron modules to support the 2- and 3-Series, Symetrix adds multiple new control options for use with room automation systems available from AMX by Harman. Now available, the modules are designed to deliver accommodation of all pre-existing AMX systems as well as those currently shipping.
