STcontroller Application

STcontroller Application

STcontroller is a personal computer application that offers a quick and easy means of confirming and revising selected parameters associated with a number of Studio Technologies Dante-compatible products. Versions of STcontroller are available that are compatible with personal computers running specified versions of the Windows and macOS X operating systems. Installation is fast and the programs require a minimal amount of a personal computer’s resources. Upon executing the program STcontroller will scan a local area network (LAN) and automatically identify compatible Dante devices. The Dante device names will be displayed and then the user can select and control the desired units.

* VenueView support provided in STcontroller for Windows.

STcontroller has the ability to save and load configurations for all the supported products. In this way the configuration of one unit can be “cloned” to others as desired. This will speed deployment and ensure consistency among units. Configurations can be created and stored “off line” using the Demo mode. This eliminates the need to have physical units present to prepare configurations.

The Windows version of STcontroller also includes VenueView, a means of monitoring multiple Studio Technologies’ devices. This is provided for technical personnel who need to maintain correct system operation of units in one or more physical locations. Real-time monitoring of audio level and signal presence is provided for a range of Studio Technologies’ products.

Selecting STcontroller’s Demo Mode allows the menus associated with the supported products to be displayed. This can be very useful, allowing the provided capabilities to be reviewed without needing to have those products present and connected to the associated LAN. In addition, sample product configurations can be selected and saved for future use.
