Technology Showcase: AV Control Systems
Feb 1, 2009 12:00 PM, By Bennett Liles
A wide variety of AV control systems to suit your production needs.
The SP Controls PixiePro PX2-MP-IR is a modular control system that uses infrared learning and fits in a 4-gang backbox. Capable of controlling up to eight devices, the PixiePro offers operation of DVD players, document cameras, switchers, lifts, screens, amplifiers, and many more devices with IR control. Access control and security is available as an option with up-to-six-digit PINs, and an automated shutdown timer can save on expensive projector lamps. Versatile programming options include audible feedback from illuminated buttons on the panel, which can be used to initiate macros and control ambient lighting. For a number of rooms with the same setup, the configuration can be quickly cloned from one unit to another.
The Multicustom from Vity Technology is an open- architecture modular controller, the main box for which can have up to 10 customization cards installed to suit any specific control and installation scenario. The cards can combine to provide infrared, RS-232, X-10, relays, and more control options. These can communicate with the Vity touchpanels through the company's MBC wired bus. The unit can also be controlled via Ethernet using a PC and a web browser. With Multicustom/IP, the browser can be transformed into a virtual touchpanel. Up to 255 infrared control codes can be learned for control of nearly any consumer media device.
