Symetrix has become a member of the Crestron ElectronicsIndustry Integration Partnership I(2)P. The I(2)P program facilitates the seamless integration of manufacturing members' equipment with Crestron systems.

Through its I(2)P program, Crestron pursues an open-platform approach that allows partner products to perform to their specifications as plug-and-play devices in a Crestron system environment. "The addition of Symetrix to Crestron I(2)P initiative allows our mutual dealers to seamlessly incorporate Symetrix products into a Crestron system environment," saidChris Wildfoerster, director of market development for Crestron. "Symetrix dealers can easily download the Symetrix I(2)P Certified module from the Design Center portion of our Website for easy integration into their system." The operating system supports any combination of UDP/IP, TCP/IP, RS-232, IR, 422 and 485 communication methods to allow any number of devices to be seamlessly integrated into the environment.

Membership in the I(2)P program allows the Symetrix SymNet Audio Matrix family of network, linkable audio matrix DSP processors to be completely integrated with Crestron control products. Designed for the installed sound market, SymNet is a modular, networkable DSP-based mixing, routing and audio processing system that includes the Control I/O system accessory, which expands SymNet's ability to control and be controlled from external devices such as RS-232 media controllers from Crestron.

"We had always intended for the SymNet system to be compatible with Crestron controllers," said Jim Latimer, director of sales for Symetrix. "It is now that much simpler for an installer to access the necessary resources to integrate Crestron control into a SymNet design."
