Wyrestorm has introduced the NetworkHD Touch iPad app for NetworkHD 100 and 200-Series single screen and video wall AV over IP systems.  First seen at ISE 2016, Touch puts control of an entire NetworkHD system, with a live video preview of all sources and displays, with drag-and-drop content selection.   

“The first-hand feedback we received from hospitality and retail projects suggested that although installers loved how NetworkHD integrated with third party control systems, hospitality and retail clients noticed the control systems themselves were not being used properly by their staff,” says WyreStorm NetworkHD Product Manager James Meredith. “This was largely due to staff difficulty fully understanding what sources were showing what content and what displays they were switching content to.  Consequently, the often very expensive control system wasn’t used to its full potential and the customer experience suffered as a result. The solution was to create a free app that could let the end user see what they were switching and to where in real time. “

Displays can be grouped into rooms, areas or video walls, with users able to save preset configurations and even switch all displays to a single source. The brand says it offers real benefits for hospitality applications such as bars, clubs and restaurants, as well as retail applications such as stores, shopping malls and showrooms.

For video wall applications, Touch makes it possible to access settings and change preset display configurations within the NetworkHD 200 Series system.  Wall layouts can be changed, saved and recalled with live video previews of all sources

Switching is said to be instantaneous. “The images never freeze or go black during the transition, no matter what content or devices are being switched-content is crystal clear and up on screen with a flick of the finger.”

Touch can also be integrated with the WyreStorm Enado control system to enable control of the source devices themselves. Control devices can be added by scanning the Enado QR code straight into the app for Enado control.

“Integrating with our Enado browser-based AV control system adds source control and QR code scanning for BYOD connectivity and further control functionality that really opens up a world of NetworkHD control possibilities.  It’s all about giving the dealer options for their clients that provide real world benefits and solve real world problems.”

To coincide with the release of Touch, WyreStorm has also launched the Management Suite, a software download application that unifies all WyreStorm product configuration software.
