Shadow Platform Software Controller (SPSC) is a multiplatform desktop application for configuring and managing a network of audio devices connected over fiber-optic cable. Target installations include auditoriums, concert halls, music clubs, and performing arts centers.
The application is dedicated to working with the Shadow Platform which is a hardware architecture that includes multiple hardware modules connected for the purpose of transporting data for the audio industry. This data can include analog and digital audio, video, intercom, Ethernet, and control data.
The application can graphically represent an entire star network that exists and has the ability to 'talk' and 'listen' to any module in the system. The SPSC itself is considered as a part of the network and has an expandable architecture based on plug-ins concept.
