Crestron recently announced the availability of its new generation MC3, the first 3-Series control system powered by Core 3 OS. Developed and engineered like an IT platform, rather than an AV system, the 3-Series platform is a cloud-based architecture designed to provide a foundation for integrated building technology and advanced home control.
The MC3 reportedly combines the agility and speed of a computer operating system with the reliability of a network appliance, enabling real-time multitasking to run up to 10 independent programs, all communicating with each other on the same platform.
When performing upgrades to any single part of the control system, it is no longer required to take down and update the entire system. Because each module is partitioned, a restart or upload of one program does not affect the others, resulting in less programming and downtime.
