McIntosh MX100 A/V Processor Receives Connects with Control4 Certification

Certification Signifies Seamless Integration into Custom Install and Smart Home Systems.

McIntosh is pleased to announce that its MX100 A/V Processor has implemented Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP) and has received Connects with Control4 Certification from Control4®, the smart home brand for Snap One.

Control4 is a leading automation system for homes and businesses, offering a personalized and unified smart home system to automate and control connected devices, including lighting, audio, video, climate control, intercom, and security.

Products embedded with SDDP are automatically discoverable by the Control4 platform for easy integration into automated systems. Integrators benefit from SDDP in the MX100 A/V Processor in many ways, from reduced installation complexity, configuration time, and costs in Control4 projects, making it a seamless addition for media room, audio, and other systems. Audio is a key part of the Control4 experience, with native support for most streaming services and high-resolution audio.

With Control4 OS 3, all of the devices in a media room, home theater, or whole home, including audio components, speakers, and services, are united for simple control from Touchscreens, remotes, keypads, and the Control4 app, and more.

"We're delighted to add Connects with Control4 Certification to the already custom install friendly MX100," said McIntosh President & CEO Charlie Randall. "Many of our other A/V Processors have received Control4 Certification, and dealers, installers, and customers have been happy with how easy they can integrate into Control4 automation systems. We're excited to bring this user experience enhancement to the MX100."

"With SDDP, Control4 customers who choose the McIntosh MX100 A/V Processor benefit from faster installation time and a seamless control experience in their entertainment system," said Noel Gouff, Vice President of Business Development, Snap One. "The processor adds to over 7,500 products in our SDDP ecosystem, enabling product choice, smooth installation, and seamless integration."

The MX100 A/V Processor 11.2 channel unit is designed for modern home theaters needing only digital inputs that don't require legacy analog inputs and is well suited for installation in a discrete A/V equipment rack with rack-friendly 2U physical dimensions and removable rack mounting brackets.

The MX100 A/V has (4) HDMI inputs, (1) HDMI output and supports a variety of leading home theater technologies, including Dolby Atmos and DTS:X; HDR formats Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG; 4:4:4 colour spacing; Rec. 2020; 3D video pass-through; and Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC).
