All components earning Control4 certification must pass rigorous interoperability tests in Control4 labs. Atlona offers a wide range of Control4-certified matrix switchers for home theater, light commercial A/V systems, and large-scale digital signage, government, military, and heavy commercial applications. In addition to Control4 certification, many Atlona matrix switchers feature RS-232 interfaces and use the standard ASCII format, making them compatible with most major control systems.
Control4 enables third-party manufacturers to design products that easily integrate with the successful Control4 platform. With more than 6,500 drivers from 150 different companies, Control4 enables leading consumer electronics devices to integrate into a Control4 system.
