Barco Overture Control Software Provides Seamless Integration with  Global Caché Hardware

Sacramento, CA and Jacksonville, OR, USA – November 14, 2017 –– Global Caché, the leading independent manufacturer of IP, WiFi, and HTTP enabling connectivity products for control and automation, and Barco, a global leader in networked visualization solutions, announced today they have formed an alliance to ensure that their combined products provide trouble free integration with Barco’s Overture Software and Global Caché hardware. The new partnership provides seamless compatibility of Global Caché hardware from within Barco’s IP based Overture control software. Overture, is shipping now with Global Caché support and connectivity built-in.

controlled, automated, and maintained by network-based software. The company offers other connectivity products and capabilities, including HDMI switching, a Raspberry Pi onboard module, sensor input, IR learning, HTTP communication, and the award-winning Control Tower IR database, available in the cloud (www.globalcache.com/controltower).

Overture, Barco’s A/V control software released in February 2017, created a revolution in A/V control solutions. Because it’s an IP-based software system, Overture is simpler and more economical to set up, install and manage than conventional hardware-based solutions. Any network-connected device with a browser can use Overture to control and monitor equipment – bringing a new world of flexibility to A/V control systems.

Barco recently announced updates for Overture including automatic behaviors and scheduling.

There is no doubt that the world is moving towards IP based control and automation,” said Alex Carru, Barco VP. “It’s the most scalable, simple, and cost efficient way to deliver software solutions. Along with the many advantages there can be challenges involved when deploying installations where unconnected devices already exist, or are desired. Yes, many devices are IP or WiFi enabled, but others are not. Using Global Caché hardware to connect those previously unconnected devices to a wired or WiFi network enables customers and integration partners to deploy Overture with any electronic device they or their client chooses. Supporting Global Caché hardware is a no-brainer for us.”

Robin Ford, Global Caché VP of business development says, “It’s exciting to see Barco deploying a powerful network based control and automation solution. Offering an IP based software product is of course the way the market is moving and our enabling hardware makes it easy to use any and all equipment required. All installations are unique in their own way, and the combination of connectivity hardware and IP based software like Barco’s software is the most flexible and scalable way to go by providing organizations and the channel choices that allow them to deliver the end result the customer is asking for. Partnering with a world class company like Barco is an honor and we’re excited about their collaboration and endorsement. Barco customers can include Global Caché hardware in their projects and installations without the need for programming or drivers giving them a distinct competitive edge.”
