Barco Overture - Software Defined Automation
Overture is an effective enterprise-wide A/V control software solution. It controls and monitors all A/V and other networked devices in multiple locations, and delivers inviting highly interactive user interfaces. Unlike conventional A/V Control solutions, which use proprietary programming languages and are overwhelmingly hardware-based and distributed, Overture software only needs to be configured. Therefore the system can be set up quickly and easily.

Overture is an effective enterprise-wide A/V control software solution. It controls and monitors all A/V and other networked devices in multiple locations, and delivers inviting highly interactive user interfaces.

Unlike conventional A/V Control solutions, which use proprietary programming languages and are overwhelmingly hardware-based and distributed, Overture software only needs to be configured. Therefore the system can be set up quickly and easily.

To add a device, you simply connect it to the IP network, configure it with Overture’s web-based interface… and that’s it. The software follows a natural and logical way of working, which means that every IT or facility team member can handle system set-up and maintenance. Furthermore, the meeting room’s user interface (UI) can be deployed on any device that has a network connection and a web browser, eliminating the need for expensive proprietary touch panels. Because the UI is based on templates, users get the same experience in every meeting room.

By adding alerts, the support team can be warned when certain events occur – for example, an overheating projector – so they can take immediate action. Because Overture centrally monitors A/V equipment, technical staff can remotely troubleshoot and correct issues for the entire company using Overture’s Help Desk interface, significantly reducing time to solution and in-room interventions.

In stark contrast to traditional A/V Control systems, Overture does not rely on proprietary hardware and runs on cheaper, thoroughly tested off-the-shelf hardware – further reducing costs and increasing reliability.

Overture recently introduced new automation features: behaviours and scheduling. Behaviours enable the setup of a task associated to a specific point (device, room, location), such as automating all devices on the same floor to switch off at the end of the workday; whereas, Scheduling allows users to set actions to be automated at pre-defined moments in time.
