Software providers Stardraw.com are pleased to announce that presentation hardware and solutions specialists, 3Touch Ltd. have standardized on Stardraw Control to create their own custom user interface, FlightDeck, through which all of 3Touch's hardware components are controlled.
3Touch is an innovative company that develops client -server -based presentation solutions designed to create a secure, fail -safe presentation environment. In addition to a number of meeting room and classroom productivity tools, products include a range of intelligent lecterns which incorporate a powerful PC and a sophisticated media distribution system offering room control (lighting, projector, screen etc.) and multi -room networking capabilities. The user interface through which all of this functionality is controlled is called FlightDeck and is created using Stardraw Control.
'The alliance between Stardraw and 3Touch is a unique fit because it adds a significant new dimension to the 3Touch product offering,' noted Eamonn Roarke, 3Touch founder and director of product development. '3Touch currently offers a unique media distribution system which manages all of your presentation files centrally and allows you to control this content from any location globally. We are using Stardraw technology, in particular Stardraw Control, as the system to control all of the back -end hardware components. 3Touch FlightDeck, the front -end control application created using Stardraw Control, allows dynamic real -time control over any piece of hardware, and is, to our knowledge, the first fully integrated system to be launched on the market.'
According to Stardraw CEO, David Snipp, 3Touch FlightDeck is a perfect example of how Stardraw Control can both add value to a manufacturer's product range, or indeed a system contractor's project, and save huge amounts of time and money at the same time. 'Our philosophy of open standards and open architecture that can control equipment from any manufacturer over any protocol, is infinitely flexible. We have also designed the application to be totally customizable so that we remain invisible in the process,' he commented. 'In creating their own application with its own look and feel to control their hardware, 3Touch have demonstrated a perfect understanding of how Stardraw Control can be used to enhance their own business activity, which is precisely what we had in mind when we developed the software.'
Eamonn Roarke agrees. '3Touch's mission is to make presenting simple; the systems we provide are all based on the premise that it should take no more than three touches to execute any command. By standardizing each and every component worldwide it means that if you use a 3Touch system in Ireland, Europe or in the USA, the control surface will be universal thus taking the complexity out of presenting. Convergence is our aim and this is the first truly convergant technology suite available in the marketplace'
