New York, NY (October 30, 2006)–Design and control software systems developer, Stardraw.com, now supports a range of Roland audio products. All Roland AR Series products, such as the AR-200S and AR-3000R Digital Announcement Recorders, can now be controlled from any PC using custom user interfaces designed in Stardraw’s application, Stardraw Control.
This software allows users to design and program fully customized, standalone control applications without having to write any code. It supports control of any hardware over any protocol and now includes drivers for Roland’s AR Series, allowing control from easily designed custom interfaces for museums, theme parks, railway stations, airports, or any application requiring high quality audio playback.
Furthermore, all AR Series products are also available as symbol sets in Stardraw’s design and documentation application for professional systems contractors, Stardraw A/V. Symbols include schematic views showing all inputs and outputs for engineering diagrams as well as high details Rack and Pictorial layouts with to-scale, vector-based front and rear panel views.
Roland Systems Group’s product manager, Neal Tomlinson is pleased to note the collaboration between the two companies. “Everybody benefits from this relationship,” he remarked. “It’s a positive step for us as it makes our products even more accessible and easy to use in a systems environment, it’s good for Stardraw as it further broadens the appeal and applicability of their product, and of course the end user benefits as well. We are convinced that Stardraw A/V and Stardraw Control are extremely valuable tools for systems developers and it is an excellent way for us to demonstrate the versatility of the AR Series in context.”
Stardraw’s Rob Robinson agrees: “Indeed, the beauty of Stardraw Control is that it can control all elements of a system, whether by TCP/IP, RS232, EtherSound, CobraNet or whatever protocol you want. This means that Stardraw Control offers full system control, including audio routing and distribution, and allows the developer to exploit the versatility of each component in the system for a completely optimized solution.”
Stardraw.com specializes in the design, development and implementation of Internet-enabled software components, control software and design/documentation tools for specific vertical markets (including Stardraw Audio, Stardraw A/V, Stardraw A/V Lite, Stardraw Lighting 2D).
