McIntosh has confirmed that its MX100 AV Processor has implemented Simple Device Discovery Protocol (better known as SDDP) and has received Connects with Control4 Certification from leading automation system Control4.

It’s estimated that there are over 7,500 products in the SDDP ecosystem. Products embedded with SDDP are automatically discoverable by the Control4 platform, for easy integration into automated systems. Integrators benefit from SDDP in the MX100 AV processor from reduced installation complexity, configuration time, and costs in Control4 projects.

With Control4 OS 3, there’s also native support for most streaming services, and high-resolution audio; all of the devices in a media room, home cinema, or whole home audio are united for simple control from touchscreens, remotes, keypads and the Control4 app.

The MX100 offers 11.2 channels of decoded audio, and is a rack-friendly 2U, with removable rack-mounting brackets.

Connectivity includes four HDMI inputs, one HDMI output with eARC and supports Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG.

To work with a Control4 system, the MX100 needs to be using firmware version 2.134 or higher; if it is using a lower version, then it will need to be updated by an authorised McIntosh dealer. Then the installer simply needs to add the MX100 to a Control4 system and the controller will recognise it. The correct driver will then be automatically downloaded from Control4 and the MX100 will be installed in the system.

The MX100 is available through authorised McIntosh Dealers, priced at £6,995. The MX100 is distributed by finesounds.uk.
