We will be teaching a class at CEDIA:

Just Add Power
Using Just Add Power's HDMI over IP for Advanced Control System Integration
Course Code: MPT985 CEU Value: 0.75
Catalog #: MPT985-2 | Friday, September 7, 4:30 p.m. 6:00 p.m.

In this class you will learn how to configure the network switch to support Layer 3 routing of the control system components of the Just Add Power 2G HDMI over IP platform. This includes the 2G RS232 control ports, and is the foundation for our upcoming 2G+ CEC over IP feature (CEDIA 2012 2G+ announcement). This Layer 3 functionality is part of the new 2G firmware version A3.2 that is being officially released at CEDIA.

If you attend this class you will learn how to give any IP based control system (i.e. AMX, Control4, Crestron, Elan!, HAI, Net Streams, RTI, Savant, URC, etc...) simultaneous access to ALL of the 2G RS232 ports, independent of the Video Matrix functions. For example, if you implement a 5x9 Just Add Power matrix, your control system can take advantage of all 14 RS232 ports. Those I/O ports can be used to control any device with an RS232 interface, whether or not those devices are part of the Video Matrix network. With the implementation of CEC over IP in 2G+, the control system can simultaneously send CEC commands to the HDMI Displays/Sources attached to the 2G+ Transmitters/Receivers, and also control any attached RS232 devices (i.e. turn on the popcorn popper or perhaps start the blender to make a refreshing beverage).

Systems Programmers with sufficient Internet routing skills can use this Layer 3 routing function to provide remote internet based monitoring and CONTROL of any device attached attached to the Just Add Power 2G/2G+ devices RS232 ports or HDMI ports (HDMI port monitoring requires 2G+ with CEC over IP enabled). For example, a projector with RS232 control could send a bulb temperature warning to the Custom Installers support desk, or a perhaps a mission critical display used for emergency broadcast information can be verified as being turned on/off from a remote control center.

No matter what control system you use, this enhanced 2-way network communication capabilities in the 2G platform can be realized by understanding the conceps that will be presented and demonstrated.

I would welcome all RC members to come to the class, and to please introduce yourself to me so I can connect a face with a name/avatar.
