New SmartView Web from SP Controls Enables Campus-Wide AV Management from any Desktop or Mobile Browser

INFOCOMM LAS VEGAS, NV, June 18, 2014 – Campus AV pioneer SP Controls has announced the next wave in campus‐wide AV management and control. SmartView Web is an enterprise‐enabled management system accessed from any web browser on the local network. Rather than being tied to a help desk, IT and network management staff can now access, control, troubleshoot and manage AV equipment campus‐wide.

SP Controls introduced the first generation SmartView in 2003 for remote access to its managed AV equipment. SmartView Web has been completely re‐designed based on HTML5 to provide immediate response from equipment such as projectors, DVD players, projection screens – any managed device – when used with the SP Controls Networked Room Controller.

Cost and Personnel Efficiencies

As a centralized, web‐based network management system, SmartView Web provides both immediate and long‐ term cost benefits by consolidating the number of individual management control points and providing flexibility to manage systems from anywhere on campus.

Using SmartView from any desktop or mobile browser, IT and network managers can

For example, an IT or network manager can set the projector in a specific room to power up at the same time on certain days. All rooms can be set to power down at the same time each evening.

Campus Safety and Emergency Alerts

When messaging is configured, individuals in any room throughout the campus can instantly alert the IT or network manager to any unusual activity or potentially volatile disturbance at their location. From the SmartView Web interface, the manager can then alert authorities and, for example, globally launch a warning message to be distributed via configured AV equipment throughout the campus.

SmartView Web is available now. For information about a SmartView Web site license, contact SP Controls at sales@spcontrols.com or phone 1-877-367-8444.
