At this year's Integrated Systems Europe show in Amsterdam, Symetrix will debut the latest version of Composer, its end-to-end programming software for its Radius NX, Edge, Radius, Prism, and Solus NX DSPs. Stop by Hall 7, Stand N-190 for an exclusive worldwide first look atComposer 7.1.

Composer 7.1 for Windows augments its already deep feature set with support for the Visionary Solutions PacketAV Duet video encoder and decoder as well as the Symetrix T-5 Touchscreen controllers and PD-1 Telco Dialer. A host of other software improvements makes system design and management more flexible.

All programming and routing of Visionary Solutions PacketAV Duet video encoders and decoders is now directly integrated within Composer 7.1. In addition, Composer indirectly supports select third-party non-Dante encoders/decoders that use the same control protocol as the Duets.

Like Symetrix ARC controllers, the T-5 Touchscreen can control every user-facing function of an installed A/V system, using Symetrix's SymVue interface. As with Symetrix DSPs, integrators can now manage any T-5 Touchscreen from Composer, as each device has its own IP address on the network.

Composer 7.1 also supports the PD-1 Telco Dialer. Symetrix developed this device to let meeting leaders dial remote attendees into conference calls, using a traditional telephone keypad rather than a touchscreen.

Composer 7.1 also features many workflow enhancements. Time/date and special character export in the SymVue for Web interface is now present. New sizing handles (horizontal, vertical, and a corner handle for sizing the entire window at once) allow resizing of objects in control screens on the fly. This and expanded design sheet sizes make it easier to optimize installed systems for different remote-control scenarios, including T-5 Touchscreens, smartphones, and tablets.

A new crosspoint audio delay is available in the Super Matrix for mono matrix modules. The Site ID field has been increased to 65535 addresses, allowing different groups of DSPs and other devices to coexist on the same network without interfering with each other; two devices in different groups can use the same remote controller number. For diagnostics and system design, Composer 7.1 can now trace signal paths backward and forward simultaneously. Editing of module channel names have been further improved, featuring expanded copy-paste ability.

As in previous versions, systems integrators can diagnose any device in a Composer-designed system by simply launching a web browser and entering the device's IP address. All of the above features add up to an expanded universe of use cases for Symetrix networked A/V systems and let the installer scale systems to meet clients' needs more quickly and efficiently than ever.
