ISE 2016: Black Box To Demo A/V, Conference Room Control System
Black Box will demonstrate its new ControlBridge control system at ISE 2016, stand #10-R125 in Amsterdam. The company will also announce its new collaboration system, Coalesce, as well as showcasing its IP-based video distribution system and high-performance KVM solutions for control rooms.
The ControlBridge system enhances the Black Box ProAV and KVM portfolios, giving users an important control function for a complete solution in conference rooms and controls rooms. Users gain multiple system control and room automation from a touch panel screen that sends signals via Ethernet.
In conference room applications, the ControlBridge system ties together various devices, including A/V presentation switchers, monitors, projectors, screens, audio, lighting, and other room environmental controls. In control room applications, ControlBridge works with high-performance KVM matrix switches and other visualization components to enable operators to easily select and view content from various sources at their desktops, or share it to a video wall through the use of dynamic API commands or preset functions.
ControlBridge system components include a range of control processors, IP-based remote signal extenders, touch panels and push-button user interfaces, mobile device apps, and a programming environment. The control processors support a variety of input/output (I/O), including Ethernet, serial, digital I/O, IR, and relays.
