Altinex has released AVSnap Version 5 the latest revision of its A/V systems design and control software.

Altinex AVSnapDesigned to facilitate a complete development environment for any size A/V system, v5 brings numerous enhancements to AVSnap that are designed to make A/V system sales professionals, design engineers, installers and programmers more productive. With factory and user-defined libraries, AVSnap works with any manufacturer’s equipment for real-world systems design. The software has provision for a complete BOM (Bill of Materials) and cable list –simplifying equipment ordering and installation cable requirements.

Paramount among AVSnap v5’s new features is the addition of Ajax technology to the web server portion of the software. Ajax (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) programming allows data, content and design to be merged; for AVSnap v5, this decreases application response time. Now, it is possible to control the A/V equipment using a PC, an iPhone, iPad, or any other mobile device.

AVSnap v5 offers increased loading speed during start-up. Similarly, AVSnap Meeting – an integrated collaboration tool that enables sales professionals and others to present their project and/or provide technical support for a customer or co-worker – now runs at four times the speed of previous versions.

In the area of A/V system control, v5 provides added control for GIF animated objects for more realistic animations when designing a GUI. A Face detection object has been added for control applications. Now, user-independent face recognition can enable GUI visibility on a touchpanel. In other words, when the user approaches the touch panel, it will automatically wake up and display the GUI to be used.

AVSnap v5 includes a bookmark feature in the code editor that simplifies programming. Programmers no longer need to be concerned about long code – just place a bookmark and jump back and forth between different parts of the code. Equally significant, AVSnap v5 offers simplified TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) and UDP (User Datagram Protocol) communication status. Users can now open the port viewer and see all of the communication activity between the program and the various controlled devices.

‘AVSnap Version 5 offers A/V professionals a wealth of features that enable them to design cutting edge A/V systems,’ says Larry Drum, Altinex Regional Sales Manager for the Central US. It is also a tremendous tool for demonstrating a system’s capabilities to prospective customers. With its increased performance speed, AVSnap v5 is highly responsive, easy to use, and a pleasure to work with. I’m confident integrators, designers, and sales pros will find much to like.’
