What is a Control System?

Wikipedia definition: A control system manages, commands, directs or regulates the behaviour of other devices or systems using control loops. It can range from a single home heating controller using a thermostat controlling a domestic boiler to large Industrial control systems which are used for controlling processes or machines.

This is the same for an audiovisual system.

When it comes to AV a control system is the heart and brain of an integrated system that allows the operator to control each piece in tandem or individually. It can be used to run a single conference room or the entire office. Many companies see the value of incorporating a single control module. These systems are a smart and necessary investment for a business that relies on conferences and presentations as a matter of routine.


Why is a Control System Important?

Today many AV Systems are integrated between audio components, displays, and even lighting.  Having to write a user manual in order for staff and patrons to utilize a system is cumbersome and can be a source of frustration for everyone involved.  The system should be intuitive and available for non-technical operators.   The goal is to keep complicated systems as simple as possible. This can be achieved through a control system. 

Your team will not only thank you for Installing a control system but it will increase productivity and save time on all fronts.
