Encompassing four specialized software packages, the Portfolio makes it easier to set up and operate a Thinklogical system, and improves overall system performance by reducing total cost of ownership, enhancing productivity and maximizing uptime. Each software package combines multiple user-friendly tools to simplify system management and ensure reliable daily operation. The four software packages are: Configurator, Configurator Plus, Enhanced Productivity Packaged and System Management Interface
CONFIGURATOR: Enables faster router set-up and simplifies user controls; The Configurator provides step-by-step screens that guide the administrator through router set-up, from adding users and devices to applying security settings.
- Setup users and groups and define access rights by individual
- Setup stations by defining sources and destinations and which users and groups can view each station
- Setup station-based macros to make multiple connections at one time, and save for future use
- Take snapshots to record connections made on each port and save for future use
- Define router name, type and IP address
- Connect multiple routers with unidirectional tie-line management
- View system information (log-ins, connections made, operations performed, error messages and system updates)
- Test router port connections by cycling through sources and destinations or broadcasting to specific ports
- VIEW command connects a source’s video to a destination without disturbing existing video displays or keyboard controls
- SHARE command connects a source’s video to a destination without disturbing other video displays, but also assumes keyboard and mouse control
- TAKE command disconnects the source’s video from any existing displays and send it only to the chosen destination and takes control of the keyboard and mouse
- Hot Key Manager allows users to access specific sources or cycle through approved lists of sources with configurable control keys
CONFIGURATOR PLUS: Enables users to configure bidirectional tie-line management; The Configurator+ offers users all of the features of the Configurator, with additional features to easily set-up and maintain multiple routers.
- Connect multiple routers with bidirectional tie-line management
- Maintain connection database to ensure synchronization between primary and secondary (redundant) routers
ENHANCED PRODUCTIVITY PACKAGE: Enables customized hot-key control access from workstations and easeof collaboration amongst multiple users; The Enhanced Productivity Package (EPP) includes all features of the SMP Configurator and adds Thinklogical’s
Drag & Drop graphical user interface and Hot Key Plus features and functions. This software package allows users to share access and control, collaborating with ease.
- Hot Key Plus: The Hot Key Manager, included in the Configurator, allows users to set custom hot key commands by destination. Users can use hot keys to cycle forward and back between a configurable list of video and keyboard/mouse sources. The Hot Key Plus software, included in the EPP, enables users to additionally:
- Toggle between the last two source selections
- Swap sources between multiple destinations
- Cycle forward and back through a configurable list of macros
- Collaborate amongst multiple users, exchanging keyboard and mouse controls by a spacebar keystroke or simple movement of the mouse
- Access On-Screen Display (OSD), where each destination maintains a unique list of sources and may scroll up/down and across tabs to access any of those sources with ease
- Drag and Drop: Graphical user interface helps users easily recreate room and destination layouts on-screen.
- Extremely scalable, allowing users to create a single system layout, or design multiple rooms, easily accessed by tabs at the top of the screen
- Set-up is simple; users right click to access the drop down menu to create a new destination.
- Sources may be custom colored to easily locate an icon at a glance. System connections are made simply by dragging a source icon and dropping it on a destination icon, for instant access
