MediaMatrix® Introduces sControl™ Network Control Processor
MediaMatrix® introduces the sControl™ network control processor. The new sControl is an industrial grade network control processor preloaded with the MediaMatrix award-winning nWare™ platform and Control Manager™ software, providing a full open-architecture control server for audio visual control and monitoring functionality typically required for large and enterprise mission-critical networked media public address and control systems. Built for hosting extensive control, performance and health status monitoring and connectivity of practically any network connected device, the sControl acts as the control center of the entire audio visual system allowing multiple network connected control interfaces running MediaMatrix Kiosk™ windows based control and/or using the HTML 5 supported Kiosk2Go™ app loaded on any Android or Apple smart phone or tablet with a browser.
Representing the brains of the control and monitoring system, sControl is designed to work in conjunction with the NION® series and next generation of digital signal processors (DSPs), Peavey Commercial Audio networkable product line power amplifiers, and audio interfaces, including practically any third-party network device either locally and/or network distributed. Like its predecessor the nControl™, sControl also supports SNMP and RATC protocols, as well as Python scripting within the nWare software control environment . The sControl operating system resides on 64 GB mSATA SSD storage media, has a 4 GB DDR3L 1866 memory (RAM), and includes support for reading/writing data from the operating system and configuration software. The control processing system includes USB ports for direct control and configuration, and dual gigabit Ethernet ports.
Where typical fanned solutions fail, the sControl thrives thanks to its hardshell fanless technology, which resists dust, metal shavings, and other debris often found in industrial environments.
The sControl network control processor weighs just 5 lbs and can be conveniently mounted within an optional 2RU rackmount tray individually or as a redundant pair allowing for independent or redundant fail-over operation typically required for mission critical applications.
