Key Digital Systems launched the KD-WP8-3, an eight-button web-UI-programmable IP control single-gang wall plate keypad that supports Telnet IP control alongside TCP and UDP. The keypad also delivers programming with variables for device parameter control requiring discrete number entry, such as specifying a startup volume setting when recalling a system configuration.

At the same time, Key Digital introduced the KD-BYOD4KHub BYOD & BYOM Wireless Presentation & Conferencing Gateway, a wireless solution for conference and presentation spaces that lets users bring their own device of any OS and present to a shared display. The hub can be used to receive USB camera, mic, and audio signals for seamless collaboration with local and remote video conference participants. Along with CEC and RS-232 room display management, the gateway’s customizable home screen and digital signage mode can turn displays into branding canvases between meetings.

Finally, Key Digital has decided to add CEC TV control on the HDMI output connections of Key Digital’s modular and scalable 4K AV over IP system. This expands the display and source control features of KD-App and KDMS-Pro and is accessible through Open API.
