LEA Professional Debuts Cloud Platform for AV at ISE 2020

Comprehensive data and performance monitoring are making systems integration professionals more efficient and profitable.

In a watershed moment where professional AV makes its first substantive presence on the cloud, start-up-turned global player, LEA Professional today debuted the LEA Professional Cloud Platform at ISE 2020. The platform provides systems integrators with powerful, reliable and secure remote monitoring and control capabilities across the entire lineup of IoT enabled LEA Professional Connect Series amplifiers.

Unique within the industry, all LEA Professional amplifiers leverage the built-in Amazon Web Services (AWS) IoT Core. The platform allows integrators to monitor critical operational data points that are integral to maintaining system health remotely. The capability delivers greater visibility to provide preventative maintenance, easier troubleshooting and fewer on-site maintenance requirements, ultimately providing a recurring revenue stream for integrators to add to their service contracts.

“Just as so many other businesses have been positively transformed by the cloud, AV is about to experience connectivity, interoperability and control functionality as never before enabled,” said Blake Augsburger, Founder and CEO, LEA Professional. “At LEA Professional we are agents of change — bringing fresh perspective, bold new ideas and deep experience and commitment to the systems integration community. The combined impact of LEA’s innovation leadership in amplifier, DSP design, and the cloud expertise of partners like AWS will transform the technology and business of AV.”

With the LEA Professional Cloud Platform, integrators are no longer required to VPN into a Local Area Network and can access system status from any device. With the ability to communicate with an installed system anywhere, preventive maintenance and other system data is gathered from multiple sensors and circuitry within the amplifier. Additionally, by delivering system performance information, integrators can now deliver greater value and recurring revenue within service contracts for comprehensive system performance monitoring.
