As AV over IP continues to grow and shape the next generation of AV products and services, Key Digital, a company that specializes digital video and control systems, is implementing an industry-first procedure of offering in-house pre-configuration. With pre-configuration integrators save valuable time and resources on each Key Digital AV over IP system installation and approach each project with confidence.

The company’s evolution of AV over IP solutions includes a start-to-finish process unheard of by any of its competitors. The entire practice includes a Key Digital free system design drawing and bill of materials based on the system requirements, encoder and decoder pre-configuration according to network specifications, unit mounting on KD-SMS16 rack shelving system, system verification including matrix switching and video wall functionality in Key Digital’s lab, and even in-house setup of the network switch when sent to Key Digital by the integrator. This powerful undertaking comes from the company’s desire to make simplified out-of-the box set-up a reality for its AV over IP products and solutions.

“What we hear from customers is that no one else in the industry is offering such a transformative way of addressing AV over IP installation issues. We don’t want our installers to waste their valuable energy performing set-up and testing in the field when we have all of the resources at our fingertips in our top-of-the-line lab right here in Mount Vernon, NY,” said Masha Lakhter, COO of Key Digital. “Our products speak for themselves with proven reliability and an obtainable price point. Now with our streamlined verified and tested pre-configuration process we’ve eliminated the learning curve for integrators and installers, and everyone can enjoy a stress-free installation process.”
