This app from Alford Media, sponsored by Barco, is your wireless preset controller for Barco’s Event Master’s family of switchers. With the Alford Preset Remote, Event Master's line of products is now at your fingertips on your iPad or iPad Mini.
With this update, there is now two-way communication between the app and the console. Every change and edit you make, whether on the app or on the console, will sync automatically to both devices. This feature allows more ease and flexibility in your programming.
It’s totally customizable and loaded with features, so you can work the way that best fits you. Features include the ability to Save, Edit, Custom Order and Restore Order. With Edit, you can edit the color and name on each preset button in the app. You can also re-sequence the preset buttons in the app by holding them down and dragging them to the desired location and you can reset to default settings with the touch of a button. The app also has buttons for Cut and an Auto-trans and the current preset is easily visible. For easier organization and access to you settings, the preset button setting can be saved to a show file within the app.
Please note: The app does not go to sleep because it is being used in a live event situation, so it is recommended that you plug in your iPad or iPad Mini whenever possible to maintain a charge.
- Added the ability to manually input the iPad's IP address. This will automatically be filled in if a network interface is detected.
- The iPad's IP address will now be properly detected when using an ethernet adapter.
- If multiple network interfaces are detected, a prompt will now display for you to select which IP address you want to use.
Ratings and Reviews
I had no desire to own an iPAD until this app. If you are a Barco Encore engineer or operator this is a tremendous tool. This tool will help on any size show. I love it when running the ScreenPro 2 controller which only gives me 6 presets without changing pages. With this app I can see and access all 36 right away. On larger shows I can setup a variety of presets and move them around as I need. I can adjust there position on a daily or per event basis. There are some attributes I would like to see and after recently talking to the developer it looks like they are happening in an update that is about to be released.
I'm not a big fan of the cool factor and Barco has been behind the times when it comes to the cool factor. I am a fan when the cool factor is combined with a working incredibly useful app. Thanks Alford for bringing the cool factor to Barco.
Helps a lot
Installed this to work our FSR Eagel controller (same as Barco small switcher). It is really great to be able to access quickly any preset without having to change pages on the switcher. Also nice that you can easily name to buttons for fast recognition.
Really a great app!
I've been waiting for an app like this for a long time. I'm just glad I don't have to do wacky VNC tricks anymore. This is going to be so useful on show site. I can't wait to start controlling Barco switchers with it. Another great app from Alford!
