— When employed with Xantech’s MRC88m, QuickConfig provides installers a competitive edge by streamlining the programming process while offering comprehensive configuration and eliminating the need for software training or a separate PC in the installation process —
— The MRC88m offers control and distribution of eight sources to eight different zones, with the capacity to expand to up to sixteen zones —
SYLMAR, CA, October 16, 2009 — Xantech, a leader in the field of audio/video remote control and distribution for 40 years, continues its ongoing efforts to provide residential and commercial installers with state-of-the-art solutions as it offers its proprietary QuickConfig installation/configuration software for the Xantech MRC88m Eight Zone/Source Audio/Video Controller/Amplifier. The award-winning MRC88m allows the control and distribution of eight separate components to eight different zones, with the capacity to expand to up to sixteen zones of control and distribution. Significantly streamlining the installation process and completely eliminating the need for a PC, QuickConfig software is an invaluable time-saver for instal lers looking to configure multiple zones and sources throughout a residence, business, courtroom or other space.
“For installers, time is money, and Xantech respects the value of both for its customers,” comments Xantech’s Senior Product Manager Thu Le. “With other software, these sorts of programming scenarios could generally take 60 to 90 minutes, or even longer. But with QuickConfig, it becomes a fraction of that – maybe 20 to 30 minutes. What formerly took half a morning or afternoon is now down to half a lunch break. During the testing phase, one of our own staff was able to do an entire system in literally ten minutes. No one else has software that can configure this quickly.”
QuickConfig software lets installers do all programming of sources and zones directly via the MRC88m’s keypad or SPLCD Touchscreen. Sources can include Xantech audio/video components or those from other manufacturers. QuickConfig also easily configures sources that have metadata, so information such as song title, artist and genre is clearly displayed.
Unlike other installation/configuration software of this caliber, absolutely no separate PC is required, and the software itself requires no special training for the installer. It is extremely intuitive and straightforward, guiding the installer one-by-one through the system components and manufacturer codes, much like programming a universal remote control device. The software is also a great time-saver, requiring far less set-up and configuration time than other protocols, and no additional time needs to be spent mastering the software.
With QuickConfig, the MRC88m is usable out of the box, and with this efficient yet comprehensive programming, a far wider range of installers can confidently offer this type of product, therefore adding services for installers to offer their customers. Also, QuickConfig’s flexibility is unmatched and provides installers with more choices. For example, they can later opt to expand a system and program additional operations with a PC, which can be easily accomplished.
“QuickConfig is another example of Xantech’s ongoing innovative work in making custom audio/video installation technology more accessible and easier to specify and install,” notes Xantech Director of Marketing and Business Development Mark Cerasuolo.
The MRC88m is now available, with proprietary QuickConfig software included. For more information, please visit www.xantech.com.
About the Xantech MRC88m Eight Zone/Source Audio/Video Controller/Amplifier
The MRC88m Eight Zone/Source Audio/Video Controller/Amplifier allows the control and distribution of eight separate source components to eight different zones, with the capacity to expand to up to sixteen zones of control and distribution. The MRC88m expands upon the capabilities of previous models by adding up to seven lines of metadata when used with the SPLCD64V, SPLCD64G and SPLCD39G. This metadata can be obtained from Xantech’s new XIS100 iPod Docking station, XMUSIC, XDT and XT1 AM/FM Tuners, and/or iPort. Included are both scrollable menu-style and current track information modes, featuring track title, artist and album name. Xantech’s connected keypads make the MRC88m fully interactive for control of the XIS100, XMusic and iPort. Additionally, the 88m offers a processing circuit that contains larger memory for project storage . It also features significantly improved RS-232 control input support for such control applications, leading to better handling of multiple and/or long input commands. Also, it contains the next generation IR code library.
