Title (EN) AUDIO SYSTEM CONTROL INTERFACE
(FR) INTERFACE DE COMMANDE DE SYSTÈME AUDIO
Abstract:
(EN) An audio control system is presented herein that allows an administrator to more easily configure, monitor, and control large-scale audio systems despite the complexity of such systems. A system designer or other administrator starts by defining the components and configuration of the system using a design user interface (Ul) that displays audio components of the system as on-screen icons or other virtual objects that the designer can connect, configure, and test to create panels. Later, a user of the system can access a control terminal that displays the panels defined by the designer. The user selects a panel and the control terminal requests Ul information describing the panel from a backend server. Thus, the audio control system provides a software-based way of configuring and controlling multiple audio components of a potentially complex large-scale audio system.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un système de commande audio qui permet à un administrateur de plus facilement configurer, surveiller et commander des systèmes audio à grande échelle en dépit de la complexité de ces systèmes. Un concepteur de système ou autre administrateur commence par définir les composants et la configuration du système en utilisant une interface utilisateur (UI) de conception qui affiche des composants audio du système sous la forme d'icônes à l'écran ou d'autres objets virtuels que le concepteur peut connecter, configurer et tester afin de créer des panneaux. Ultérieurement, un utilisateur du système peut accéder à un terminal de commande qui affiche les panneaux définis par le concepteur. L'utilisateur sélectionne un panneau et le terminal de commande demande des informations UI décrivant le panneau à un serveur principal. Ainsi, le système de commande audio fournit un moyen basé sur logiciel pour configurer et de commander de multiples composants audio d'un système audio à grande échelle potentiellement complexe.
