DMX. RS232. Art-Net. KNX. MIDI. Audio. Scheduling. Logging.
Have you ever tried to describe your installation’s features and functions in short sentences? Its challenging isn’t it? We tried to do our best to give you a brief introduction about what Avio can do to make your daily life in systems integration and show control easier and more comfortable. Please do always note that Avio merges together all these different worlds of technology to a single configuration, control and visualization layer.
Social Media Integration
Social media content can be integrated into the AVIO network and can be made available to all system components. Using AVIO this way, it is possible to use social media content as part of information displays in corporate environments or for realising interactive displays in museums or theme parks.
In a lot of AV installation projects building functions such as lights, shades or climate are controlled via the KNX bus. KNX projects can be easily imported into Avio and the data points can be linked with all other components within the Avio network. Whatever they are: Control, visualisation or information.
Interaction and gesture control becomes more and more popular. The difference between a “nice effect” and a properly functioning solution is in the details. Depending on the application it is neccessary to select the right interfaces and sensors and sensor data has to be filtered and smoothed. Myo armbands are measuring muscle impulses and features gyros and earth field sensors and is natively interfaced in our control network Avio.
Building automation integrated.
KNX has been one of the most established bus system used in building automation for more than 20 years. Avio allows to import the KNX configuration of the whole building making all building functions such as the lighting, air conditioning, security systems, weather data and more available on the Avio network.
DMX has been the standard protocol for controlling staging and installation effect devices such as moving heads, scanners, fog machines etc. for years. It is stable, simple and well established. Avio brings DMX universes into the Avio network and makes DMX inputs and outputs available to all other devices in the installation.
Third Party Devices
Ethernet. Serial. IR.
Third party devices such as projectors, switchers or scalers can be integrated via their RS232 or Ethernet connections into the Avio network. Avio wraps all the third party device functions and monitors their execution and device status. Drivers translate the commands back and forth on the Avio network and can be easily created using our own software wizard. Although configuring drivers is straight forward our support team is happy to assist if new devices have to be added.
Interaction and Gesture Control
Avio fully supports innovative human/machine interfaces such as the Microsoft Kinect interface, which uses 3D microphones, cameras and distance sensors to track people and their gestures. These gestures are connected and available on the Avio network for further use within the AV installation.

How can I get my themed attraction react on the prevailing weather conditions? How can I send E-Mails to visitors with information retrieved during their stay at the museum? Although Avio can handle a lot of automatic scaling and data converting sometimes it is needed to do some more sophisticated calculations and logic functions. Avio has its own Lua scripting interpreter which allows for sophisticated programming if something special is required. Although programming Lua is straight forward our support team is happy to assist.
There are numerous scripts already included with the Avio distribution such as E-Mail, Mathematics, Counter, Compare, Delay, Multiplex, Value Conversion, Weather or File I/O.
Are you used to accessing everything with your smartphone or tablet? Avio devices run their own embedded webserver which can be used for device configuration but can also host control websites which have been designed and customized with Wings Touch.
