Software providers are delighted to announce that their newest application, Stardraw Control, was feted with a much-coveted Innovation in Technology award on the occasion of its worldwide launch at NSCA 2005. This is the second major trophy for Stardraw Control, which has already been honored with a PLASA Award for Innovation at its preview at London's PLASA show in September 04.

Stardraw's marketing director, Rob Robinson, explained the key features of Stardraw Control that set it apart from other control solutions. "Stardraw Control generates standalone, customized control programs that can manage any type of addressable equipment from any manufacturer using any protocol over any communications infrastructure. Instead of being locked into closed architectures wherever system control, monitoring or signal routing has been required, Stardraw Control offers systems integrators an open, software-based, unified control framework that can manage his entire system with a single application, regardless of system complexity. To our knowledge, no-one else offers such an innovative and flexible system, and to be shortlisted for the award from over 120 applicants was a great honor. To win by public vote is testament to the excitement that Stardraw Control has generated among manufacturers and systems integrators alike."

Like other Stardraw applications it is fast, powerful, flexible and easy to use; with a drag-drop interface and intuitive design environment, installers are able to configure systems and control them without having to write a single line of code. Utilization of technology means that control programs are portable and can run on any Windows-enabled device, from PC to PDA. Importantly, Stardraw Control can communicate with and control any device using any protocol. Since support of particular protocols can offer access to thousands of products, Stardraw Control is almost infinitely flexible and scaleable. Protocols currently supported include TCP/IP, RS232, DMX, IR, EtherSound, CobraNET, infra-red, UDP, SNMP and QSC Net.

According to CEO David Snipp, “With Stardraw Control we have developed an open system that is universally applicable. Manufacturers like it because it conforms to any standard or protocol they choose, and installers are excited because it breaks the constraints on product selection and application programming that you get with closed-architecture systems. This is a winner at every level.”
