The Event Manager is a smart, built-in feature in the Lightware HDBaseT compatible TPS extender family, the MODEX line and in some select matrix switchers like the MMX6x2-HT series units. The feature is available through the freely downloadable Lightware Device Controller software.
The Event Manager was developed to handle tasks from the most simple to expert ones, like controlling the rolling shutter, the air conditioning system or the lights based on any condition changes on the media ports, such as a new source being connected or removed.
Event Manager application is continuously updated with additional features via firmware upgrades: a delay can be added between the condition and the action and more actions can be triggered by a single condition change. With the help of the ‘condition count’ and ‘action test’ features, the predefined settings can be tested before going live. The system can recognize infrared commands which can also be set as conditions, and commands can also be sent via Ethernet.
