Key Digital® to Showcase Exciting New Technologies at A’17 AIA Conference on Architecture
Posted on Wednesday, March 8, 2017

Key Digital, the leaders in digital video and control systems, extend an exclusive invitation to Booth 3172 during A’17 AIA Conference on Architecture at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, FL to explore how Key Digital products and services are the ideal fit for all audio-visual design needs.

Key Digital understands that technology should blend harmoniously with design without depreciating the visionary process.  Not only does Key Digital’s control system offer a blank slate that is limited only by imagination, their team of qualified individuals waiting to assist the integration of electronics and technology into any design offer full support with cutting-edge and first-rate knowledge of industry standards and practices.  Key Digital will be discussing the company’s extensive hardware and software products portfolio with specific focus on Compass Control® and how the designers in the System Design Group (SDG) conceptualize with fashion and purpose.

Designing a high quality fully integrated audio-visual and control system can be a difficult and time-consuming task; Key Digital values customers’ time and offers these system design services FREE to authorized partners.  The professionals in SDG have over 50 years of combined experience and are ready to combine any design concept with the perfect audio-visual solution.

Compass Control® is a fully integrated control system built from the ground up to use iOS & Android devices to replace traditional control interfaces.  Compass Control® excels in video control functionality, a key element in the proliferation of digital signage and video collaboration.  There are no restrictions on the design and layout of a Compass Control interface – if it can be envisioned, it can be executed!

 “Key Digital's System Design Group is a free service with a constantly increasing value.  Increased installation of multizone video systems accompanied by increased complexity of digital video signals  mean that it is now more important than ever to have a factory stamp of approval,” says Jonathon Ferry, National Training Manager for Key Digital. “System Design Group is a proven bridge between Key Digital and various firms, consultants, and integrators coming from other industries needing a standardized solution for digital video content distribution.  The AIA is the latest example of building a bridge between these two subject matter experts.”

SDG provides the expertise to choose the components and design a system that will provide the utmost in presentation, quality, and functionality. The System Design Group works through any project and provides information, product choices, block diagrams, and pictures to make sure that all the conceptual and functional needs of the project are met. 

“Compass Control® has been built and tested for the most complex projects, from the smallest office to a sports arena with 500+ control points in the system, out there today and tomorrow. Our architecture and road map for the category is very clear, we will continue to stay true to our customers and help other Compass Alliance Partners every step of the way”, states Dan O’Donnell, VP of Sales for Key Digital. “Compass Control® allows the look and feel of the system to be completely designed by the installer.  Final customer interface doesn’t have to look like a consolation prize in a control system game show, but become a main selling point attractive to end-users and building designers.  Our standard practices of installation and implementation are not constrained by existing hardware, giving designers flexibility of implementing Compass Contro UI solutions on variety of iOS and Android devices.”

Compass Control® instantly integrates components from Compass Alliance™ Partners to create a simple plug-n-play system. Key Digital’s control drivers and pre-configured GUI templates for partner products lend to streamlined system development and reduced programming time. Partnering with Lutron, Leviton, Honeywell, KNX, and many additional industry leaders enable Compass Control to be the most modern and cost-effective control system available.
