Crestron brought out its new generation MC3, the first 3-Series™ control system powered by Core 3 OS. Developed and engineered like an IT platform, rather than an AV system, the 3-Series platform is designed to provide a foundation for powerful advanced home control. The MC3 combines the agility and speed of a computer operating system with the reliability of a network appliance, enabling real-time multitasking to seamlessly run up to 10 independent programs simultaneously, all communicating with each other on the same platform. Upgrades can now be performed on any individual subsystem while allowing the other programs to run seamlessly in the background, the same way IT performs upgrades.
