TEKVOX Announces Third Generation TekMonitor AV System Controller
June 17, 2015
Features in New Generation Enable Universal Control, IoT Sensor Gateway for Low Power Beacons and Unprecedented Expansion Capability
TEKVOX introduces the TEK 3, the third generation of the TekMonitor™ networked AV and Room Controller series. This new design adds greater flexibility to the TEKVOX control products by allowing control of any AV or building automation device that offers a control protocol and an RS232, Infrared or IP interface.
Unlike other control systems using a centralized controller and custom programming, a TekMonitor is designed as a monitored distributed control system with device drivers and asset management. As an energy savings device, the TEK 3 is designed to easily connect to occupancy or motion sensors. TekMonitor products are easily configured in minutes utilizing TekWizard™, a component of the bundled TekManager™ software suite, which offers an intuitive step-by-step setup process.
The TEK 3 includes a new TekBus™ expansion interface provides an RS-485 serial interface and power supply to expansion modules and TekTouchPad™. This allows for easy addition of low power relays, logic IO, multiple IoT sensors and external wired and wireless communications modules including wireless beacons. The flexible design enables the interface to be configured as a third RS232 serial port.
“With the TEK 3, TEKVOX is bringing the full benefit of the Internet of Things (IoT) to the AV control market” stated Jim Reinhart, TEKVOX CEO. Reinhart added, “As a fully capable AV controller in addition to a fully modern sensor control gateway, the TEK 3 will bring unprecedented convergence between AV and IoT. Beacon technology for automating both human factors and asset management will be the norm and comprehensive acquisition and processing of multi-sensor data for analytics will revolutionize administration and building management functions. TEKVOX is leading both the innovation in technology and in total cost of ownership”.
TEKVOX is a private Texas company offering unique A/V control technology that brings unprecedented affordability, capability and reliability to audio/visual applications in teaching, training, meeting and interactive collaboration. Applying state-of-the-art Internet-of-things (IoT) and enterprise management (EMS) technologies, TEKVOX’s distributed, networked solutions dramatically change the cost of acquiring and operating A/V-rich facilities.
TEKVOX will be displaying its solutions at InfoComm 2015 in Booth 4372 held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, June 17-19, 2015. A live Press Conference will be held in the TEKVOX booth on Thursday, June 18th, at 3pm Eastern Daylight Time.
