Remote Monitoring and Control

SystemVUE networking technology connects all VUE DSP-enabled products to a Windows or Macintosh computer via a wired or wireless Ethernet connection (see specifications pg. 4). Once connected, the companion SystemVUE Software allows users to access any single product, or entire networks of them, through a highly intuitive user interface. Device and network-specific windows make optimizing and monitoring easy, with controls for  input/output levels, volume, mute, delay, input sources and the ability to monitor a broad list of parameters right up front and within easy reach.

SystemVUE Network Already Onboard

Every VUE DSP-enabled loudspeaker or processor ships with SystemVUE networking capabilities already onboard. There’s no need for additional cards or retrofitting. And since every VUE DSP-based product was designed from the ground up to be part of the SystemVUE network, there’s tremendous synergy at every level. From transducers, amplifiers and DSP, all the way out to the SystemVUE Software, everything works in perfect harmony to enable precise control and easy operation.

Zero Configuration Networking for Easy Set-up

network-dig-02.psdTo make set-up easy, SystemVUE automatically creates a usable TCP/IP-based network without requiring manual operator intervention or special configuration servers. This means that any VUE DSP-enabled system will automatically recognize and connect to virtually any kind of IP configuration including DHCP-based networks, a fixed IP network, or even an ad hoc network (directly connecting to a computer via Ethernet cable). Whatever the configuration, just plug in and the devices are instantly recognized. It just works.

SystemVUE Software

Think of SystemVUE Software as command central for the SystemVUE network. Elegantly simple, and deceptively powerful, SystemVUE Software combines system and device-level control and monitoring capabilities with a highly intuitive user interface that’s fully compatible with both Macintosh OSX and Windows operating systems.

Most importantly, SystemVUE Software was designed with significant input from installers and system integrators. So unlike other applications that were developed from the perspective of the DSP or electronics engineer,  SystemVUE Software takes a practical, real-world approach and puts the most critical functions right up front and within easy reach.

SystemVUE Network Browser Window

The network browser window shows all VUE systems available on the network as well as an overview of their current status. It also allows users to create, monitor, and select groups.

SystemVUE Group Configure and Select Group Members Windows

SystemVUE groups can greatly simply controlling larger arrays and systems. Once you have created a new group you can add members and elect what functions the group will control.  For example you can make a group of all the elements in a line array and as a group delay them to time align them with subwoofers. Or you could create mute groups that allow you to turn off sections of the system with a single button. Group functions are maintained int he software and are independent of the firmware running on the actual devices.

Network Control is not an after thought!

All h-Class systems and the V4 System Engine (DSP/amplifier) ship with networking monitoring and control capabilities already onboard. Unlike competing products in this category all VUE DSP-based systems are designed from the beginning to be network-enabled. There’s no need for additional cards or retrofitting, and every model is optimized for easy configuration with other h-Class and al-Class models via the SystemVUE software.
