Control software

PC control softwareUsing software is one popular control option offered by Crystal Vision. Crystal Vision's control software is available in five versions.

VisionWeb provides web browser control of any remote-enabled products in both the Indigo and Vision ranges, with the Statesman Lite PC control software available for the Indigo frame system only. SNMP and the ASCII and JSON protocols are all ideal for integrating any Crystal Vision products into a universal control system - with SNMP including alarms setting.

Finally, the MultiLogo Control Software is dedicated software for the logo keyers and clipstores in the Indigo range.

 

VisionWeb ControlAvailable in both Indigo and Vision frame systems

VisionWeb ControlVisionWeb Control is a free-of-charge way of operating the full Crystal Vision product range from a web browser running on any device connected to the same network from PC to tablet or phone.

VisionWeb uses a board's XML control interface, which is stored on the CPU card of all Vision frames and in the front panel of Indigo 'AE' or 'SE' frames running software V5.0 or later.

To access the control menus, simply type the IP address of the frame into your web browser, or use the browser's Bookmarks or Favourites to easily navigate between frames and boards.

VisionWeb Control was initially launched for the Safire 3 chroma keyer in 2013, and rolled out for the full Crystal Vision product range on 24th July 2014.

VisionWeb is now Crystal Vision's main control software.

SNMPAvailable in both Indigo and Vision frame systems

SNMPSNMP monitoring and control is available for Crystal Vision's remote-enabled boards. SNMP is included for free in the Vision 3 frame, while one SNMP licence needs to be purchased for each Indigo frame.

Crystal Vision's SNMP can work with any SNMP manager. With SNMP monitoring, the agent can either report the status or generate traps on a status change of any board in the frame. With SNMP control, the manager can read and change the value of control settings on any board in the frame.

Using SNMP requires a Vision 3 or Indigo 'AE' or 'SE' Crystal Vision frame, the purchase of the front panel SNMP agent (when using Indigo) and appropriate MIBs.

The latest MIBs are available for download from the Registered Area on this website. Log into the Registered Area to download the MIBs file to do so you will need your Registered Area username and password. Alternatively request a Registered Area password now.

ProtocolsAvailable in both Indigo and Vision frame systems

ProtocolsOur protocols make it easy to put Crystal Vision products into a universal control system.

Our easy-to-implement ASCII protocol allows straightforward control from external control systems with limited programmability, such as automation systems and button boxes.

HTTP/JSON is a standard protocol and is aimed at those who want to implement their own web-based control. Software developers will find it easy to use it as an interface to interrogate and control Crystal Vision products by extracting the required data from our XML files.

The ASCII and JSON protocols and XML files are available for download from the Registered Area on this website. Log into the Registered Area to download them to do so you will need your Registered Area username and password. Alternatively request a Registered Area password now.
