No-code platform for AV

Design, develop and deploy control to any device. Parallax Control is for basic and advanced programmers.

Built for Integrators

Control Solutions for Commercial AV

See how easy it is to build with no-code

Parallax Control enables both experienced developers, and no-code developers to create customized user-interfaces. Easily tie your UI design into our back-end hardware by simply matching up Join-Id’s.

Control devices with the following protocols:

RS-232, RS485, GPIO, Relay, TCP, UDP, HTTP, HTTPS, Websockets, SSH.

Quickly deploy control to any environment.

Simple, yet powerful.

Parallax Control provides control solutions for Corporate, Hospitality, Medical Simulation, Command Centers, AR, VR and any application requiring touch-based control and automation. The system is designed to enable control of audio/visual equipment with minimal coding requirements.

Build simple, or complex user-interfaces

Easily build any User-Interface with the Scene Wizard

The scene wizard takes building beautiful UI's to the next level. As AV programmers, we don't want to spend ages building out the touch-panel, but we also want it to look just right. The Scene Wizard solves that isssue by building out pages, and placing UI elements in the canvas for you. Elements such as buttons, sliders, images and more. Once you're done, press the Setup Scene button to build your project.

Visual Flow-Based Programming (FBP)

As easy as connecting the nodes

Visual FBP programming is used in various domains that require high levels of modularity and scalability. The Parallax Control Processor comes with Node-RED installed and treats various AV components (like switchers, displays, audio systems, etc.) as nodes. Each node (or black box) performs specific functions like volume control, input switching, or signal processing. The Parallax Control System comes with a set of custom nodes designed to seemlessly communicate with the user-interface project.

No-Code UI Development

Build user-interface for Android, iOS, macOS, PC using our plugin for Unity Software.

Need A Control Solution For Your Product?

Step 1: Get on a discovery call with one of our technical advisors to explore your vision and draw out a scope of work.

Step 2: Plan out your control applications work-flow.

Step 3: Approve or make updates to the control app look, feel and layout.

Step 4: Our developers begin finalizing the front-end and start building out the back-end control logic.

Step 5: In the finalize phase we test with real hardware under live situations. 

What is the Parallax Control Processor?

The Parallax Control Processor is the control system hardware that allows for automation and control of third party A/V devices. It’s used to control any type of device through standard control protocols such as IP or Serial Communication. 

Control Solutions For Any Device

The Parallax control system offers extensive control capabilities for IP, RS232, RS485, GPIO, IR, relay, and analog devices. This allows users to control and monitor a wide range of devices from a single platform, making it a highly efficient and versatile solution.
