Atlas Sound announced ControlKom, an IP-based paging system incorporating control with SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) compatibility. The company says this compatibility allows it to be integrated with most existing phone systems, and users can simultaneously send an audio stream and/or text message to IP loudspeakers, computer screens, and overhead paging systems, all with speed, confidence, ease-of-use, and reduced operation costs.
ControlKom can be deployed within a single building, throughout an entire campus, or through multiple campuses. Working in conjunction with IP loudspeakers using true POE (Power Over Ethernet) capabilities, the ControlKom platform supervises and controls loudspeakers, digital clocks, bells, and zone controllers for transmission of audio and text messaging to one or multiple zones within a system.
The clock and bell tone scheduling allows separate schedules to be set for an individual building, floor within a building, or any other defined area. Messages — prerecorded or live — can be broadcast to an unlimited number of IP-enabled devices as well as all other sources of communication both visual and audible within a system.
The system also has an optional function that lets it trigger other events, such as monitoring motion detectors, fire or security panel contact closures, door contacts, and wall-mount call switches.
