June 14, 2023

Open Control API and Integrated Web Interface Further Simplify Technology Management

InfoComm (Booth 4443) - ORLANDO — HARMAN Professional Solutions, the global leader in audio, video, lighting and control, today introduced the CE Series, a new family of professional-grade Universal Control Extenders. The new line delivers AMX-quality hardware control to any system that supports IP connectivity, making these units ideal for corporate spaces, colleges and universities, and government facilities.

AMX debuted four models, including CE-IO4 with 4 I/O Ports, CE-IRS4 with 4 IR/S Ports, CE-REL8 with 8 Relays, and CE-COM2 with 2 Serial Ports.

An open control API makes it simple to integrate CE Extenders with any IP control systems or apps and the integrated web interface enables configuration without specialized applications. HARMAN’s HControl protocol enables auto-discovery by next generation AMX control processors and other HARMAN Professional products. PoE power and a compact footprint simplify installation and concealment.

“We couldn’t be happier to introduce this new line of Universal Control Extenders,” said Nick Czapla, HARMAN Professional Control Solutions Product Manager. “These boxes make it super simple to extend control well beyond typical point-to-point connections to just about any device within reach of the IP network – it really is that easy. The open control API and web interface also make integration quick and painless.”


    An open API makes it possible for any control system or application to control CE Series Universal Control Extenders. Whether part of a larger HARMAN Professional installation or the only AMX product in an install with products from other manufacturers, the open API allows seamless integration.
    The compact form factor of CE Series Universal Control Extenders is not much larger than a deck of playing cards. This small size, combined with the simplicity of being PoE powered, makes for easy mounting and concealment.
    CE Series Universal Control Extenders are perfect for applications that require a low-cost control extension solution with the professional-grade quality and security of an AMX product.
    The included web interface simplifies configuration and provides device control capabilities for testing during commissioning.
    The HControl protocol enables CE Series Universal Control Extenders to be auto-discovered and integrated seamlessly with next generation AMX control processors and other HARMAN Professional products.
