Tile View - A new way of matrix handling

A brand new crosspoint view is designed to give a more intuitive way of handling Lightware matrices. It gives the opportunity to have a more detailed port status for as many ports as possible in the same view; including the name of the port, the connection status, the presence of the signal and the signal type. It also introduces a new way of crosspoint switching: multiple switches can be made in a single step. Tile View overcomes the slightly awkward crosspoint handling of the Grid View, especially in the case of large matrices.


Dynamic crosspoint layout

The new Lightware Device Controller can adapt to different screen sizes. It makes the application easy to use on touchscreen devices like tablet PCs, laptops and also on desktop PCs as the layout of the tiles are optimized for the actual device.

 


Auto update

When LDC is used on computers which have internet access, there is no need to bother with manual updates. The software can check if there is a newer version available online and will update automatically. This function can be disabled if required.


Cross platform support

The new Lightware Device Controller is available for both Windows and OS X operating systems, compatible with the latest touchscreen laptops and Apple computers.


Device specific layouts

When controlling an extender or an interface with the new Lightware Device Controller, port parameters for the devices can be accessed directly without messing with crosspoint views. Multi input extenders like the UMX transmitters or the UMX4x4-Pro standalone matrix have their own special layout for more intuitive control.


User friendly preset handling with the new presets View

The new LDC has a user friendly, more transparent and quicker way of preset handling compared to the older versions. Presets can be loaded quickly by one click from a separate preset view, which also gives an overview of the saved connections in the same time.


Matrix built-in websites

The built-in website of the matrices will soon be amended to have the same look and feel as the desktop application. Users will have the same user experience and functionalities to control their matrices and it will also be optimized for handheld devices.


Advanced EDID Editor and Easy EDID Creator

Lightware Device Controller includes the Advanced EDID Editor which provides a professional, very detailed, but still easy to use EDID creation and editing tool. It allows users to create their own EDIDs from scratch or to edit existing EDID data provided from the connected projectors or monitors. System engineers can save the modified EDIDs to files (.bin, .dat and .edid file formats are supported) allowing them to use it with 3rd party manufacturers’ AV products or as a backup. The EDIDs can also be uploaded to the matrices right from the editor. The Easy EDID Creator is a wizard that helps the user to create a new EDID in a simple and intuitive 4 step process.


Product support and compatibility

The new software supports all currently selling Lightware products except MODEX and 25G families (which have their own control application). Functions and features have been tested device by device thoroughly with the latest firmware package available since May, 2014. If any malfunction or bugs are seen, please upgrade the firmware of your device. The Lightware Device Controller completely takes over the earlier Matrix Controller software. The earlier version will be available for download, but any new features and products will be supported only on the new platform.
