PS Audio PowerPlay Cloud Computing Power Conditioners Ship


PS Audio, the leader in innovative AC power products for Consumer Electronics is now shipping the world’s first Cloud Computing based line of power conditioners.

PowerPlay, first introduced at the 2008 CEDIA Exposition, is the first and only web controlled power conditioners to utilize Cloud Computing for access and control.

Cloud Computing represents a major paradigm shift in control and communication over the internet that will eventually create one of the most significant market opportunities for CE since the explosive growth of the Internet itself.

The main advantage of PowerPlay’s Cloud Computing configuration is a way to communicate without a fixed web address and the ability to increase capacity or add capabilities on the fly without investing in new infrastructure, training new personnel, or licensing new software.

The robust nature of the Cloud enables the PowerPlay system to provide a control bridge that connects equipment in custom installations to the dealer/installer through a simple web interface requiring no setup or software.

PowerPlay’s growing list of control features include multiple IR commands, hard reboot by zone, ping based auto reboot for modems, assignable priority for battery backup, scheduled green vacation time, power on/off, email notification of events and hourly power line conditions and event logging.

Instead of the classic client-to-client approach based on the power conditioner’s internal web page accessed through a specific web address, Cloud Computing places all the control, software and access in a network “cloud” accessible from anywhere in the world through a secure dealer website.

In this new model, any client can access any equipment anywhere in the world without a static IP or even knowledge of the location. All that is required of the dealer or installer to gain control is the name of the customer. The equipment can move from location to location without notification and the Cloud will maintain constant access and control.

The secret lies in the Cloud itself. Both the remotely located PowerPlay unit and the dealer or installer accesses each other through the Cloud as intermediary. The Cloud supplies the growing number of applications and control software to the equipment as well as keeps track of the PowerPlay’s location and provides access to it from any web client anywhere in the world.

PS Audio will be demonstrating the PowerPlay line of AC conditioners and UPS at the CES, January 8 — 11 at suite 29-136 at the Venetian Towers.
