New York, NY: PepperDash, the AV industry’s largest control software development firm, today announced the release of its “Essentials” core control software framework as an open source project. PepperDash Essentials™ is a Crestron® framework capable of running a wide variety of system designs out-of-the-box and can also serve as a standardized plug-in architecture to augment SIMPL# Pro and SIMPL Windows programs.
“PepperDash has a long tradition of giving Valentine’s Day gifts to its clients, industry partners, and heart-healthy charities,” according to CEO Howard Nunes. “For our 20th anniversary, we decided to make our Valentine’s Day gift something truly special. Something for the entire industry.”
“Open source software is common in areas outside of AV,” reports CTO Sumanth Rayancha. “In fact, most software products out there depend on it. But it’s rare in AV, where things are proprietary and custom. PepperDash wants to ensure that the AV industry continues to be recognized for innovative problem-solving. Defining open source control code, which anyone can use and improve for the benefit of the entire industry, helps meet that goal.”
