HydraConnect Introduces Crestron Support


HydraConnect_HSS3_Crestron_support_small.jpgHydraConnect has introduced a software module that
will enable its HSS family of HDMI matrix processors to interface with Crestron 
home automation systems. Crestron custom installers will now be able to use a 
HydraConnect HSS matrix processor for whole house audio, video, and control
 distribution in a Crestron home automation system environment.

The new HSS software includes the
 ability to connect eight A/V media sources to up to eight A/V display and sixteen 
sound locations, control those A/V devices in response to Crestron user interface 
interactions, and provide A/V device state feedback to the Crestron automation
system.

The features of HSS Matrix Processors include video and control
 distribution via 8x8 HDMI and independent 8x16 audio matrix switches. The HSS 
system provides auto-configuration of detected A/V media devices, automatic EDID 
and HDCP key management, and patented CEC control and status of A/V devices 
(including Blu-Ray players, A/V receivers, and TVs) that eliminate the need for IR
 flashers and other cabling. An on screen display (OSD) is provided to indicate source 
media sharing status changes to eliminate consumer confusion that can occur in
 multi-source/multi-room environments. It is also used to indicate stereo muting and 
3D video state and supports the dealer during installation.

HydraConnect also 
provides automatic, cloud-based software updates for new features and software 
improvements, remote access without the need for security weakening port
 forwarding, and a web administration interface that is accessible locally and 
remotely using PCs, tablets, and other mobile devices.
