In a press release, Key Digital says it has aligned itself with the goals of the education market and strives to provide simple and user-friendly controls that enhance the education experience.
Updates to the Key Digital Compass Control Pro GUI, it says, help make it “the most modern control system in the AV industry.”
The Key Digital Compass Control Pro is built from the ground up and replaces traditional control interfaces with the end-user’s preference of iOS devices, according to Key Digital.
“With technology becoming a greater part of classrooms in K-12 and collegiate levels there is an increased need for a unified interface for control,” says Jonathon Ferry, national training manager, Key Digital.
“Key Digital’s HDMI switching and extension products have already been a go-to solution in classroom AV, and we are now seeing that brand awareness turn into end-user demand for our Compass Control Professional System.
“Key Digital’s decision to use iOS devices as the Compass Control Pro interface takes the concept of ‘user-friendly’ one step further. There is not a staff member present in any education market that cannot intuitively navigate the control system on their iPad.”
