PL+S 2016: AV Stumpfl debuts Wings IObox Pro control system7 April 2016
The focus of Prolight + Sound 2016 for AV Stumpfl has been the arrival of its new Wings IObox Pro network control device, a compact solution powerful enough to control building automation, AV and lighting systems 24/7. The company revealed shipping for the Wings IObox Pro will begin this month.
“Removing the need for PC-based control, AV Stumpfl has taken the tried and tested IObox adding several new performance features. It is the most compact but scalable media control solution available on the market today allowing for advanced control of AV and building functions,” said Tobias Stumpfl, CEO at AV Stumpfl.
One of the new features of the Pro version is its ability to host a HTML5 touch user interface using a built-in web server. This user interface can be designed and customised using AV Stumpfl’s free Wings Touch software. It utilises HTML5 web app technology for prompt bidirectional control.
Wings IObox Pro comes with full support for the worldwide KNX home and building control standard protocol, and has direct group address access from Engineering Tool Software (ETS) using the AV Stumpfl Avio network that uses a abstraction layer and virtual architecture.
The IObox Pro can also host 10 UDP/TCP network device drivers, which enhances connectivity, especially for AV devices and third party systems.
A new web configuration utility ensures device configuration and status monitoring. Avio management system ports provide systems status within the network. Critical backup and restore to SD Card is improved and the unit is rack mountable and compact.
“Each device is a fully functional and complete media control solution that can be used for boardrooms, residential applications and other corporate installations. For larger projects or ones that require more processing power, more IObox devices can be added to a network ensuring that the system is scalable and future proof,” added Tobias Stumpfl.
