From small flight packs to large control room installations, it’s easy to find a TouchDriveTM panel to suit your production. Every TouchDriveTM panel features bright, easy-to-read multifunction displays and a built-in DashBoard computer to make even complex panel tasks simple and intuitive.
The DashBoard software application provides full control of Carbonite Black and many other Ross and third-party devices. Multiple instances of DashBoard running on network-connected computers allow production operations to be distributed among many operators – even those working remotely. Task-specific DashBoard CustomPanels can streamline operation of the complete system, allowing a single operator to efficiently control the entire production.
For HD applications, the intuitive ViewControl touchscreen interface consolidates control of Carbonite Black and external controlled devices. User-configured custom control macros can be mapped to a specially-designed DashBoard interface, providing instant touch selection of sources, transitions, memory recalls and more.
TouchDriveTM Control Panel Support
The high-res LCD touch-displays and built-in DashBoard computer incorporated into the new TouchDriveTM panels provide unprecedented information and control to the operator.
The MediaManager interface has been completely integrated into DashBoard and now adds media upload capability directly from the built-in DashBoard computer.
New DashBoard Menus
With updated Configuration and Live Assist tabs, as well as access to more menu settings, DashBoard is now a more integrated switcher management tool.
New SoftPanel Functionality
The DashBoard SoftPanel interface is now a truly independent satellite panel.
MultiPanel in DashBoard
Configuring multiple control panels, including SoftPanel, can now be accomplished using the DashBoard interface.
Frame and panel Personality settings are now available with DashBoard so Bus Maps, User Button assignments, Color Schemes and more can all be applied independently to master or satellite panels.
Import/Export Switcher Sets
Transferring Sets from one switcher to another is even easier with the import/export tools now built into Dashboard.
Improved Memory Interface
Switcher Memories can be named in DashBoard and displayed on the TouchDriveTM panel. Additionally, switcher levels and enabled memory attributes are also displayed.
