AVT Question: Please share your company's philosophy, vision, and product roadmap heading into InfoComm 2022. [June 2022]
At InfoComm 2022, LynTec’s presence will be one devoted to showcasing our award-winning lineup of simple and affordable power control solutions. Anyone who’s followed us for any length of time knows that we’re zeroed in on providing flexible, web-enabled products for any install. We’re supporting the audio, video, and lighting of large venues, universities, corporate buildings and campuses, broadcast studios, and houses of worship.
The AVL technology and install requirements in each of these applications are distinctive. That’s why we’ve made it possible to find a system tailored to those specific needs. For example, our LCP Lighting Control Panelboard is equipped for LED lighting and video wall installations. This stand-alone enclosure allows organizations to benefit from the controller electronics originally found in our popular RPC panel, which was built for robust AVL installs, but in a compact 12x12 form factor. Our Narrow Profile Panelboards introduced a new RPC form factor. It boasts the industry’s thinnest panel, allowing it to be installed on the I-beams of industries, stadiums, performance spaces, and mega churches. As a result, the circuit breaker is much closer to devices, shortening the electrical runs and producing significant project cost savings.
On top of being installer friendly, all our web-enabled solutions are built to deliver extremely simplified control for users. At the show, we’ll demonstrate just how easy it is to control every circuit in multiple zones. Leveraging our built-in and license-free IP browser-based interface, we’ve created mobile-friendly Apple and Android apps, a plug-in for QSC Q-SYS platform, and greater BACnet protocol support. In this way, they can control their AVL assets at the system, zone, and circuit level, with or without third-party controllers—any way they choose, for installs of any size. We’ve taken the complexity out of power control and done so at a much more sustainable price point.
