Mar 10, 2005 8:00 AM
Altinex, manufacturer of AV signal management solutions and Simtrol, designer and developer of Windows-based AV control software solutions, have announced the launch of new MultiTasker Friendly control software.
Simtrol offers a control library for Altinex’s AVSnap systems integration tool.
The Altinex MultiTasker product line is a modular AV system used to design, configure, and build innovative and compact signal management solutions. Simtrol’s control software allows the command, control, and monitoring of incompatible devices including AV devices. This joint effort provides integrators a single, powerful platform to develop dynamic and cost-effective signal management and device control solutions.
Building on the successful prototype demonstrations to systems integrators at the 2004 InfoComm trade show, this product release brings exciting new firmware and software to market, including control capabilities with enhanced status feedback available on MultiTasker cards.
The flexible MultiTasker allows the switching, distributing, amplifying, converting, connecting, and controlling of video, audio, and control signals in one comprehensive rack-based system with up to 50 percent rack space savings over dedicated AV products.
Also available as part of this launch is Simtrol’s first library for Altinex’s AVSnap. AVSnap is a free, professional AV system integration tool for consultants, sales engineers, designers, installers, and other AV professionals. Simtrol’s control library brings rich graphical elements to integrators interested in using cost-effective, standard PC controllers and touchpanels to deliver complete AV solutions.
“Altinex continues to significantly enhance the hardware and firmware capabilities of the MultiTasker product line,” commented Steve Meyers, CEO of Altinex. “Our new signal detect capability is a good example of an enhancement that makes a real difference in the ability to diagnose and correct signal management problems.
“Simtrol’s Ongoer and OnGuard monitoring software make it possible to discover problems proactively and quickly diagnose problems remotely, greatly increasing system and user efficiency.”
“Simtrol is excited about launching our MultiTasker Friendly Ongoer software,” stated Rick Egan, Simtrol CEO. “We believe Altinex’s unique MultiTasker platform, combined with our powerful control software, gives integrators an extraordinary tool to develop applications that save their clients space, time, and money.”
