AUDIO-TECHNICA AT-MX381 SMARTMIXER® JOINS CRESTRON INTEGRATED PARTNER PROGRAM (IPP)

— Contractors and system integrators can now control A-T’s AT-MX381 SmartMixer® Eight-Channel Automatic Mixer with Crestron products —


Stow, OH 06-07-2011 Audio-Technica, worldwide leader in high-performance microphones, wireless systems, headphones and more, is pleased to announce that its AT-MX381 SmartMixer® Eight-Channel Automatic Mixer with optional computer control (via RS232) now features full integration with Crestron Electronics control products, through a dedicated AT-MX381 module developed as part of Crestron’s Integrated Parter Program (IPP). This compatibility allows contractors and system integrators to install the AT-MX381 to operate seamlessly with other hardware in an open-platform Crestron systems environment. Such a system may consist of audio/video, security, HVAC, lighting and other controlled devices that may be incorporated into commercial configurations. This solves a number of problems for the contractor, as integration of disparate units is often a frustrating obstacle when setting up a new system.

Equipped with optional computer control, the AT-MX381 SmartMixer is the latest addition to Audio-Technica’s family of automatic mixers. This microprocessor-controlled automatic mixer is designed to provide automatic mixing functions for installed sound, house of worship, broadcast and conference applications. Engineered for intuitive, easy-to-use operation, the new SmartMixer automatically keeps the number of open microphones to a minimum, bringing background noise and feedback under control and providing increased clarity and audio quality.

Mark Donovan, Audio-Technica Sales Engineer – Installed Sound, stated, “Audio-Technica is committed to supporting systems integrators by providing them with the tools necessary to help streamline their projects, saving valuable time in the process. With that in mind, we are proud to join forces with Crestron in order to simplify the process of integrating the AT-MX381 with Crestron’s control systems.”

“Crestron is happy to welcome Audio-Technica to our Integrated Partner Program,” said Dominick Accurso, DMC-D Manager - Integrated Partner Program. “We have also just released the AT-MX381 module on our site and it is now available for free download.”
