A virtual press conference from Sound & Video Contractor


Brea, CA – December 2011… Altinex, a leading manufacturer of Signal Management Solutions®, is pleased to announce the release of AVSnap Version 5 (www.avsnap.com), the latest revision to the company’s highly acclaimed AV systems design and control software. Designed to facilitate a complete development environment for any size AV system, the new AVSnap V5 offers numerous enhancements designed to make AV system sales professionals, design engineers, installers, and programmers more productive.

AVSnap V5’s elegant design interface enables advanced users and beginners alike to feel right at home. With built-in and user-defined libraries, AVSnap makes it is easy to use any manufacturer’s equipment and, thus, is an invaluable tool for designing real-world AV systems where products from multiple equipment providers must interact together. The software has provisions for a complete BOM (Bill of Materials) and cable list—thus simplifying equipment ordering and installation cable requirements. It only takes one hour to learn the basic features of AVSnap in order to start creating productive drawings.

Paramount among AVSnap V5’s new features is the addition of AJAX technology to the Web server portion of the software. Ajax (sometimes called Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) is a way of programming for the Web that eliminates the hourglass. Data, content, and design are merged together into a seamless whole. Thus, when a person clicks on something in an Ajax driven application, there is very little lag time. For AVSnap V5, this newly incorporated technology dramatically decreases application response time. Now, it is possible to control the AV equipment using a PC, an iPhone®, iPad®, or any other mobile device.

With AVSnap V5, system designers and others are able to get to work faster. The new software offers increased loading speed during startup. Just click on the AVSnap icon and the software is ready for use. Similarly, AVSnap Meeting—an integrated collaboration tool that enables sales professionals and others to present their project and/or provide technical support for a customer or co-worker—now offers four times the speed of previous versions.

In the area of AV system control, AVSnap V5 excels. This new version provides added control for GIF animated objects (FW, REW, STOP and START) for more realistic animations when designing a GUI (Graphical User Interface). Further, a Face detection object has been added for control applications. Now, user independent face recognition can enable GUI visibility on a touch panel. In other words, when the user approaches the touch panel, it will automatically wake up and display the GUI to be used.

AVSnap V5 now includes a new bookmark feature in the code editor that greatly simplifies programming. Programmers no longer need to be concerned about long code—just place a bookmark and jump back and forth between different parts of the code. Equally significant, AVSnap V5 offers simplified TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) and UDP (User Datagram Protocol) communication status. Users can now open the port viewer and see all of the communication activity between the program and the various controlled devices.

Larry Drum, CTS, Altinex’ Regional Sales Manager for the Central United States, commented on the latest version of AVSnap. “Compatible with Windows® XP, Vista, and 7, AVSnap Version 5 offers AV professionals a wealth of features that enable them to design cutting edge AV systems. It is also a tremendous tool for demonstrating a system’s capabilities to prospective customers. With its increased performance speed, AVSnap Version 5 is highly responsive, easy to use, and a pleasure to work with. I’m confident integrators, designers, and sales pros will find much to like.”

AVSnap V5 will be available on December 12, 2011. The software is free. For additional information or to download AVSnap, visit www.avsnap.com.
