NORTHRIDGE, Calif.— HARMAN Professional Solutions, the global leader in audio, video, lighting and control, today announced it’s new AMX MUSE Automation Platform, four new MUSE Automation Controllers, and several supporting developer resources.
Featuring a modern embedded processor that’s 10x faster than previous AMX NX Controllers, MUSE Controller models integrate bountiful memory, and rugged, industrial grade eMMC storage. Built on HARMAN’s secure Linux platform, MUSE Controllers are also designed to surpass the requirements of the most secure installations.
Additionally, these Controllers natively support HARMAN's HControl (open-API), HiQnet (legacy HARMAN audio devices) and ICSP (legacy AMX control devices) protocols, making them the ideal automation processor for any space, environment, or application - old and new.
“Thanks to an incredibly loyal and discerning user base, we’ve had many successes over the decades inventing and re-inventing what control automation should be to push the boundaries of what’s possible,” said Nick Czapla, Product Manager of HARMAN Professional Video and Control. “And while exceeding the needs of users will always be our biggest motivator, we engineered the MUSE platform to equally support the evolving needs of system integrators and developers. Examples include the inclusion of multiple scripting language support and native no-code/low-code programming to support the varying skillsets and language capabilities of developers that will define MUSE possibilities not yet imagined.”
“I’ve been honored to work so closely with tremendously talented customers and partners, many of whom have vastly different skillsets, and both programming and non-programming backgrounds,” said Jamie Trader, Vice President of Video and Control, HARMAN Professional Solutions. I have to say, AMX MUSE was inspired by them. This new platform is a love letter to them, celebrating their diversity, their cleverness, and their deep drive to abandon the constraints of conventional Pro AV. The early reactions have exceeded all expectations - and I couldn’t be more thrilled for people to finally experience automation the way they want to have it: leveraging their tools, supporting their workstreams, and being inspired by all the possibilities that means to them.”
