The McIntosh MX123 AV processor has received Connects with Control4 Certification, it has been announced. With Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP) implemented, the AV processor is automatically discoverable on a Control4 network for easy integration into smart home systems, reducing installation complexity, configuration time and costs in Control4 projects.

With Control4 Smart Home OS 3, all devices in a media room, home cinema, or smart home can be controlled from an app, wall keypads, remotes and more.

The recently announced 13.2-channel processor, which retails for £9,995, is compatible with all the leading home theatre surround sound and object-based 3D audio formats, including Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro-3D. An ideal high-end addition for media rooms, theatres and other systems, it features seven HDMI inputs and three HDMI outputs, all fully compatible with 4K Ultra HD sources with Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG, 4K Ultra HD at 50/60Hz, 4:4:4 color spacing, Rec. 2020 and 3D video pass-through.

"AV processor adds to over 7,500 products in Control4 SDDP ecosystem, enabling product choice, smooth installation, and seamless integration..."

"We’re thrilled to add Connects with Control4 Certification to the already user friendly and fully-featured MX123. Our previous generation of AV processors received Control4 Certification and dealers, installers and end-customers were very pleased with how they could be effortlessly integrated into Control4 automation systems,” says McIntosh President and CEO Charlie Randall.

Noel Gouff, Vice President of Business Development at SnapAV adds: “The processor adds to over 7,500 products in our SDDP ecosystem, enabling product choice, smooth installation, and seamless integration."

All MX123s will work with a Control4 system with no need to update the MX123 firmware. The installer simply needs to add the MX123 to a Control4 system and the controller will recognize it. Then the correct driver will automatically be downloaded from Control4 and the MX123 will be installed in the system.
