Following the announcement during Apple’s WWDC conference back in June 2018 that Apple TV would soon get IP control via Crestron, there has been much anticipation of what might be released.  While people wait for something to appear on the horizon Ultamation have moved forward to deliver the only MediaRemote based integration module for Apple TV. 

Ultamation is known for creating reliable, innovative and popular modules; but did you know we also sell hardware too?

Being honest, it’s just one item but we are very proud of what we’ve created.  The Ultamation UC-DMX-200 is an Ethernet to DMX control interface for DIN rail mounting applications.  It features complete control of an entire 512 channel DMX universe, the UC-DMX-200 provides the bridge between any programmable Ethernet based control system and a DMX lighting system (or any other DMX controlled devices).

We launched SIMPLIfied 2 a few weeks ago after over six months of development.  We have found it invaluable in our office since, however it is tricky to convey this, as the best way for anyone to appreciate it is to try it yourself.  To encourage this, we released the basic version for free.  This version provides a simple mechanism to analyse your SIMPL programs for easily recognisable issues which would generate notices, warnings or errors in a normal compile but in the fraction of the time without having to go through the time consuming compilation step. Also, when you save your program in SIMPL, it automatically refreshes in SIMPLified 2. 

To try and demonstrate how the other entitlements can help, we’ve done a case study showing how we used it in a recent job.

This week sees much excitement in the Ultamation office with the launch of our new application, SIMPLified 2, which is the culmination of a 12 months of work.  In a nutshell, it is a tool to analyse your SIMPL Windows programs for common issues.  Through add-on entitlements, which can be purchased, you can open up a whole toolkit of useful functions enabling you to create more efficient, reliable, cleaner and maintainable programs.  We started releasing information on it last week and the initial feedback from one Chief Technical Officer with over 20 year industry experience was "Mind blown - This looks absolutely game-changing!".
