Stampede Presentation Products has been appointed to serve as a strategic U.S. and Canadian distributor of the complete line of Key Digital products, including the company’s iOS-based Compass Control solution.
“We’re very excited to join forces with Key Digital to present their product lines to our network of over 11,000 dealers in North America,” said Stampede President & COO Kevin Kelly. “The addition of the Compass Control system to our portfolio of products will enhance the control solutions our dealers are able to offer their customers.”
According to Bob Templeman, Key Digital’s National Sales manager, “Stampede’s market reach in the United States and Canada, coupled with its expertise in vertical markets, makes them qualified to distribute the Key Digital product line, and to share the Compass Control system with its network of dealers.”
Key Digital offers solutions in eight categories, including Digital Video Processors, Video/Audio Matrix Switchers, Video/Audio Switchers, Video/Audio Distribution Amplifiers, Video/Control/Interface Adapters, HDMI Cables, CAT5/6/7 Baluns, and Control Products – namely the Compass Control system.
The Compass Control system relies on familiar iOS devices, including iPad, iPad Mini, iPhone and iPod Touch as the system backbone. The Compass Control base system consists of one KD-MC2500 Master Controller with the Compass Control app running on an iOS device under a Compass Control license. The system’s programming, a simple drag-and-drop process that can be completed in as little as one hour, requires the use of the Compass Navigator Software that allows both simple step-by-step programming or more advanced programming capabilities to create custom control interfaces. A/V distribution is easily programmed using the Key Digital Matrix Switcher, or a simple control interface can be programmed to control an existing system.
