Adtec Digital Adopts Zero-Configuration Networking Technology

Adtec Digital (booth #1860) has adopted zero-configuration networking technology, streamlining the setup and configuration process. Adtec devices will dynamically install themselves on the host network with minimal operator input.

Zero-configuration (zeroconf) networking technology enables automatic discovery of computers, devices, and services on IP networks. It is standard on Adtec's current decoders and newer encoder products.

Adtec has approved three web browsers that support zero-configuration. Apple leverages zero-configuration in OS X through the Bonjour locator found in the Safari browser. Apple also provides a Bonjour plug-in for Internet Explorer for Windows called Bonjour for Windows. Firefox users can use the BonjourFoxy plug-in for controlling Adtec products that support zero-configuration.

Zero-configuration capability is most useful when network is comprised of many Adtec devices. It provides a dynamic look-up table for any unit which is announcing itself to the network. The benefit is that the user does not necessarily need to know the IP address of the unit. The user can simply click on the link, and the web browser will forward them to the configuration and control application for that device.

Configured Control for Live Events

At the November 28th InfoComm/Rental & Staging Roadshow that will take place in Washington D.C., one of the Presenters will be Drew Taylor of High Resolution Systems, who will present “Configured Control for Live Events”, talking about new generation control systems for live events that now allow the user to quickly navigate the user interface that hides nothing and allows the user to view, edit, and have full control and flexibility of their control system. So a “configured control system” is now within reach of the average stager. How do they work?
