Key Digital KeyCode Open API Enables Third-party Network Control of External Hardware

Digital control, processing and signal distribution networks have revolutionized the AV systems industry for the better. Yet, many AV networking systems do not have the ability to control disparate external hardware components that lack network interface capabilities. Key Digital hardware sharing the TCP/IP network can be configured to monitor a defined port, intercept and translate the text stream and deliver it to the target device via IR or RS-232. The bi-directional ports can also receive data, such as a command acknowledgement or status report, and return it to the source network.

The Hidden Challenge Facing Thousands of Businesses

The Federal Communication said this in August 2019 in describing the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN), also known as analog copper-wire phone lines or plain old telephone service (POTS). POTS is reaching retirement age after a very long run, starting on March 10, 1876, with Alexander Graham Bell famously barking, “Mr. Watson, come here, I want you,” to his assistant. After almost 150 years, it’s no surprise that other technologies –primarily mobile networks and voice over internal protocol, or VoIP, phone service– have eliminated the need for POTS infrastructure.
