AtlasIED Collabs with Control Concepts on Atmosphere System Capabilities
AtlasIED has collaborated with Control Concepts to make the company’s Atmosphere system even easier to integrate with other manufacturers’ products through a single interface. The availability of third-party control modules and drivers—developed by Control Concepts for Crestron, AMX and Extron control platforms—provide expanded capabilities and added ease of integration.
In addition to the control options within Atmosphere, modules and drivers for third-party control offer integrators the choice and flexibility to implement Atmosphere with devices outside the native ecosystem. These middleware solutions leverage Atmosphere’s API making it easy for integrators to implement custom control surfaces and advanced logic to address any unique request a client may have, while also leveraging Atmosphere for the audio in common applications like a corporate conference room, hotel lobby, restaurant or other mixed media spaces.
“Working with Control Concepts to address our need for third-party control integration was excellent from start to finish,” said Tom Lureman, AtlasIED’s director of product management and engineering. “All our questions and concerns about module and driver development were immediately addressed upfront. Not only did the thoroughness of their approach and attention to detail provide us with confidence that they really understood our product, audience, and needs, they also coached us through the process of making educated decisions that would lead to favorable outcomes for our product.”
“It is exciting to see how the AtlasIED Atmosphere system is growing and evolving in its feature set, flexibility and integration potential,” remarked Steve Greenblatt, CTS, president and founder, Control Concepts. “In addition to providing a highly capable external API, AtlasIED has taken steps to ensure that Atmosphere is easy to integrate for programmers of all types by investing in control system modules and drivers. The availability of these modules and drivers not only demonstrates AtlasIED’s commitment to the power of the Atmosphere solution, it is also indicative of their desire to help make their dealers’ projects more successful by reducing complexity, saving time and streamlining integration.”
Greenblatt added that “Control Concepts is proud to collaborate with AtlasIED on achieving exceptional results and continuing to serve the AV industry with quality products that meet the demands of integrators, programmers and end users. We want our clients and our clients’ clients to be successful, profitable and highly regarded in the industry. Our relationship with AtlasIED is indicative of our commitment to fulfilling this mission.”
