McIntosh has announced that their MX122 A/V Processor has received Control4’s Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP) Certification.

The MX122 A/V Processor combines the audio performance of the McIntosh Reference System with the latest in home theatre technology. It is fully compatible with 4K Ultra HD video sources and can upscale lower resolutions to 4K Ultra HD. It offers full support for leading object-based 3D audio technologies Dolby® Atmos, DTS:X™ and Auro-3D, plus streaming audio capabilities.

SDDP is software that is built into a manufacturer’s product to make integration with a Control4 home automation system simple and seamless. By incorporating SDDP into the MX122 A/V Processor, installation complexity, configuration time and costs are reduced. It also helps alleviate potential incompatibility with other devices within home.

We’re excited to add Control4’s SDDP Certification to what is an already user friendly and fully-featured product,” said McIntosh President & CEO Charlie Randall. “By implementing SDDP coupled with the value of certification, the MX122 can be effortlessly integrated into Control4 automation systems to further enhance the user experience.”
