Atlas Sound Launches Updated ControlKom Mass Communication System


ControlKom v1.2
Updated ControlKom Mass Communication System Now Available from Atlas Sound
PHOENIX, AZ – As the exclusive US distributor of the ControlKom Mass Communication System, Atlas Sound and the Mitek Communications Group are pleased to announce the release of the new Version 1.2 of the system software.
ControlKom is one of the simplest and farthest-reaching solutions to the task of managing campus messaging, bell scheduling, security, and much more. It offers a comprehensive IP-based paging system control with SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) compatibility allowing for integration with almost any existing phone system. With this technology, users can simultaneously send an audio stream and/or text message to IP loudspeakers, computer screens, and overhead paging systems, all with speed, confidence, ease-of-use, and reduced operating costs.
The new version of the software was released February 1st, 2010 and incorporates new updates and improvements to this already highly utilized and recommended system.  New primary features include the Intercom Endpoints link to initiate an intercom session from the speaker and the ability to use scrolling text for visual displays. The Intercom Endpoints link has been added to the left navigation menu and allows speakers with contact closures the capability to initiate 2-way intercom messaging to a designated phone from a simple push button control. Secondly the new functionality of scrolling text creates further configurations for text to be displayed on computer screens and other digital signage. Long messages now can be scrolled with the complete control over the scrolling speed and how many times it repeats.    
“With the ease of use of IP address speakers and the ControlKom software, mass notification from Atlas Sound has been meet with incredible satisfaction in the numerous school districts, industrial and healthcare complexes, and government facilities where it has been implemented and deployed,” said Steve Young Atlas VP of Sales and Marketing. “The new updates available in v1.2 do a great deal to further the already exceptional reliability and flexibility of the ControlKom solution.”
