Smart Monkeys, Inc., the show control specialist, has joined forces with ZeeVee, Inc. to offer a turnkey SDVoE AVoIP distribution solution for large-scale architectural and themed installations, creating new possibilities for complex shows and presentations.
As a result of this partnership, ZeeVee’s ZyPer Management Platform natively supports Smart Monkey’s ISAAC API. This means that users are now able to customise, control, schedule, log and manage complex media presentations through one integrated programming and front-end management workspace.
ZyPer4K SDVoE AVoIP encoders and decoders can be controlled from the ISAAC workspace ‘out of the box’ with no extra programming needed. Plus, users will also be able to access the full array of ZyPer Management Platform system operation and monitoring data.
Supporting large-scale AV installations
Together, the two companies have created a turnkey AV distribution solution for a huge variety of large-scale AV installations, suitable for use in theme parks, airports, casinos, visitor centres, museums, showrooms and more.
“We developed the ISAAC Platform to address the market need for aggregator control software that can manage the multiple interfaces of diverse AV components within large-scale installations that are becoming more common in public spaces,” says Stephan Villet, owner, Smart Monkeys.
“We chose ZeeVee as our partner for AV distribution as it has the deepest experience and success with the SDVoE IP platform, representing the future with significant performance, flexibility and cost-saving benefits over the traditional matrix switch.”
“Smart Monkey’s ISAAC Platform provides integrators faced with more challenging AV projects with a robust, high performing and reliable integrated system they can offer their customers with a high degree of confidence,” adds Joseph Chordas, VP Marketing and North American Sales, ZeeVee.
“Together, we are well-positioned to provide solutions to specialized markets, including entertainment, hospitality, enterprise and others where there is a growing call for the ability to create larger and more immersive visual statements.”
As well as managing the distribution of AV signals through the ZyPer4K encoders and decoders, the ISAAC Platform also hosts lighting and show control software. It is able to run several operating systems and applications concurrently, while each OS stays completely isolated from the others. Therefore, the amount of hardware required is reduced, providing a fully-redundant system in a reduced rack space.
Last year, Smart Monkeys also announced a strategic partnership with Megapixel VR, adding its OMNIS AV monitoring technology to the ISAAC platform.
