VIEW® CL9100

Subsystem Connector

VIEW CL9100 connects to other sub-systems, providing a means of not only controlling audio from the touchscreen, but also controlling lighting, HVAC, security and other subsystems.  VIEW provides the processor and the interface to these systems using IR, RS-232, or IP. By connecting to other systems and controlling them from one user interface, the project maintains a consistent look and feel.

Multi-Protocol Interface

CL9100 provides a bridge to other systems (Lighting, HVAC, Security...) using either IR, RS-232, or IP as a communication protocol. IR or RS-232 control is ideal in situations that only require one way communications, while RS-232 and IP are perfect for systems that need two-way control for feedback. As newer IP systems become available VIEW is already positioned to take advantage of their IP connectivity.

Third Party Drivers
VIEW uses an open source scripting language called LUA for drivers. These drivers are used to "teach" the CL9100 how to communicate with other systems in RS-232 or IP. Many drivers have already been included and more are added regularly. Documentation is available for those who need to write custom driver files.

Unified Interface
Using VIEW as a platform to integrate multiple systems allows one interface to control many systems. It is no longer necessary to have separate audio/video, lighting, HVAC, and security keypads on a wall.  

Mounting Options
While not all systems controllers are conveniently located in the same area, all CL9100 requires is a Cat5 connection to the VIEW Ethernet switch allowing it be mounted where it is convenient. Two CL9100 can fit into 1U of rack space using a ClearOne Binding Plate. Mounting plates are included that allow the CL9100 to be mounted onto a wall or ceiling. The chassis can also be used freestanding.

Included Drivers
Custom LUA drivers can be written to allow a CL9100 to interface with a variety of subsystems, but in many cases this is not necessary. VIEW already includes several pre-written drivers that are built into VIEW StreamNet Application Suite/dealer setup. These drivers make it easy to integrate and serve as examples for custom drivers.
