DNF Controls Highlights New Switches At NAB 2016

Building on their 25 years of device control experience, DNF Controls will be bringing new IP interfaces and signal monitoring systems to NAB 2016.

DNF Controls will be expanding its roster of Internet control interfaces at the NAB Show 2016 with a slate of new product introductions starting with IP Control Buddy, featuring programmer-free webpage configuration. IP Control Buddy will be available in both GPI/O (General Purpose Interface/Output) and LCD pushbutton models. This lets a single button push activate a GPI/O, to transmit a serial command, or send an Ethernet-based TCP/UDP/SNMP/HTTP message.

Users can store multiple configurations and then replicate them in other local or remote USP systems.
