System Design Solution

Operational Requirements

The customer wanted to update their aging AV system with AV control that was, at the same time, state-of-the-art and easy to use. The users of the system were accustomed to the way their control interface worked, and wanted the same type of user experience with the new system. The system contains a movable AV cart filled with various gear as well as a secondary control system. The customer also wanted an iPad as an additional point of control for the system.

  1. Design user interface for the touchpanels using GUI Designer.
  2. Configure the system using Global Configurator Professional.

Key Configuration Concepts

For this application, GC Pro is required because controller grouping is needed as well as the use of two primary touchpanels.

  1. Logic for locking-out the secondary touchpanel.

    When one of the touchpanels is in use, the other touchpanel needs to be locked out so the system can only be controlled using one touchpanel at any given time.
