Control panels which provide a hardware control surface for a Cerebrum system
Cerebrum control panels are configured in the same way as the graphical user interfaces, using the Cerebrum Designer application, which comes for free with every Cerebrum installation. All devices connected to the Cerebrum server can be controlled or viewed from this physical surface. Due to the flexibility of the LCD button displays, the panel can be configured to work with a limitless number of ‘pages’ which can be linked together to form a logical, quick and user-friendly interface.
The 64x32 LCD buttons can display up to three rows of multi-lingual text in a chosen font and/or a graphical icon. One of up to 64 different background colors and eight brightness levels can be selected to allow for easy differentiation of functionality, selection or state.
The flush mounted LCD buttons and compact depth allows the panel to be horizontally mounted in a desk or console. The buttons are inserted into sockets allowing them to be changed in the field in the event of any accidental damage. The panels also have two lockable DC power inlets allowing for an optional redundant PSU.
All devices connected to the Cerebrum server can be controlled or viewed. In addition, eight GPI inputs are available which can be used for any function within Cerebrum, commonly used for selection of router sources when driven from Camera Operator Control Panel touchdowns.
