PS Audio is now shipping the world’s first cloud computing (or CloudAV) based line of power conditioners. What’s that mean? Well, they are web controlled power conditioners to utilize so-called “cloud computing” for access and control. Cloud computing represents a major paradigm shift in control and communication over the internet that will eventually create a major shift in both the PC and AV industries – you can read more about it in my 2009 Krystal Ball piece above.
The main advantage of PowerPlay’s cloud computing configuration is a way to communicate without a fixed web address and the ability to increase capacity or add capabilities on the fly without investing in new infrastructure, training new personnel, or licensing new software.
