Key Digital Announces Compass Control Pro

Partner Alliance with dbx by Harman

Mount Vernon, NY – March 27, 2017– Key Digital, the Leaders in Digital Video and control systems, announces a valuable alliance with dbx by Harman and their ZonePRO Series of digital zone processors. DBX joins Key Digital’s Compass Control Pro Partner Alliance program and its impressive and constantly growing list of integration products streamlined within the software.   

Key Digital is an award winning developer and manufacturer of leading-edge digital video processing and video signal distribution solutions.  Key Digital also designed the first fully integrated control system built from the ground up to use iOS and Android, Compass Control Pro.  Compass Control Pro offers modular programming or custom design with a blank slate that is limited only by imagination.  Compass Control Pro Partner Alliances pre-configured control drivers, modules, and GUI templates integrate instantly and seamlessly to save on precious programming time.

The dbx by Harman ZonePRO Digital Zone Processors were designed to provide flexible programmable zone processing for multi-zone commercial applications. They provide every tool required for maximizing system performance. From signal routing to control to processing, the ZonePRO is a complete multi-zone audio solution.

Engineers at Compass Control Pro profiled the ZonePRO Series and completed a driver that enables seamless integration of ZonePRO in the Compass Control Pro environment while greatly reducing the installation time for integrators.

“A control interface is the gateway into a system for a user, and delivering the right interface is key to providing a great user experience,” stated Ian Gregory, Harman Signal Processing’s Installed Sound Market Manager. “The support of the ZonePRO natively within Compass Control allows straightforward of user-specific interfaces through the simple step-by-step programming of a Key Digital-controlled ZonePRO audio system.”

“Resulting from cooperative efforts between Key Digital and dbx by Harman, the integration of the ZonePRO series within the Compass Control Pro environment represents a powerful and user-friendly comprehensive solution delivering iOS-based control and entertainment functionality. The Compass Alliance Partners have come together to create a system that has full driver integration already completed, increasing efficiency for integrators” adds Michael Lakhter, COO of Key Digital.
