Control Server is a flexible and extensible approach to the control of Symetrix Composer-enabled DSPs and select third-party AV components. The centralized server-based technology enables comprehensive design, deployment, and maintenance of large and sophisticated systems employing numerous control endpoints supporting multiple simultaneous users.
- A web services platform for AV control.
- Programmed using Composer software.
- Built-in wireless and wired connectivity.
- Browser-based administration and control.
- Serves BYOD computers, tablets, and phones.
- WI-FI access makes for a secure AV control island.
Wired and wireless network interfaces.
Control Server's wired Gigabit Ethernet port enables control via dedicated AV or general purpose facility networks, as well as direct communication with networked DSP hardware. Operating in wireless mode, Control Server functions as an access point providing mobile device connectivity - in essence providing a secure "AV control island".
Straight-forward Setup and Deployment.
Control Server is designed into a system using Composer - Symetrix' award winning open-architecture application. Composer is used to locate and program Control Server and other Symetrix DSPs and accessories. Control Server's browser-based administration is then used to manage app licenses, users, and user access.
SymVue for Control Server.
Award winning SymVue running on Control Server hardware makes possible robust deployment and maintenance of large scale systems by supporting numerous and diverse browser-based endpoints under the control of multiple simultaneous users.
Mixer for Control Server.
Mixer supports up to 32 virtual channel strips, each with an assignable fader and a mute button, and dynamic screen-sizing and orientation. Mixer can be used on virtually any mobile device. Users can group and hide channels, assign custom labels and colors, and adjust fader resolution and travel. Multi-touch functionality makes possible simultaneous adjustment of multiple faders, just like a physical mixer. A Mixer instance can be saved to a smart device's home page for instant access, appearing as a native app. Multiple users can operate the same instance, and user access control can be provided via username and password security for each user.
Benefits of the "App" Model.
Because apps are virtual, they serve to reduce overall system costs by cutting down on hardware requirements. Unlike Control Server apps, functionally equivalent hardware products are expensive and prone to wear, tear, and failure.
Unlimited Programming Flexibility.
Control Server is programmed using Composer - Symetrix' award winning open-architecture programming application. Unique to Composer is the ability to natively configure Symetrix and select third party Dante hardware - thereby eliminating the confusion of multiple or redundant software applications.
