Central Control 4 Now Available!

Today we are excited to announce the release of Central Control Version 4, an update the pushes Central Control forward once more. It features both new Central Control exclusives as well as new modules and also some important quality of life improvements.


Connect

Central Control Connect allows for ultra low latency video monitoring of sources in resolutions of up to 4K, supporting both internal video sources such as the teleprompter and production clocks, as well as NDI Sources. The stream is accessed via a web browser making it possible to view it on almost any device – laptops, tablets, phones, smart TVs and even VR Headsets. Central Control Connect also levarages the GPU to ensure minimal resource usage!


X-Keys Improvements

Central Control now supports the usage of multiple of the same type of X-Keys, simply by setting the unit IDs uniquely. Further more, there are 3 new modules for new X-Keys on the modular series.


Magewell

Central Control 4 has new modules for Magewell’s new Director Mini, allowing easy control over camera switching, graphics as well as audio, complete with VU meters and scribble strips when using the Behringer X-Touch. There’s also a module for the Magewell ProConvert decoder, allowing easy selection of video sources. 


Central Control API

Still in testing, the Central Control API allows users to do almost anything you can do in the main user interface from a simple to use HTTP API. This is useful for scenarios where you wish to script the mapping of your controllers on a show to show basis. Full API documentation is provided via Swagger.

Central Control 4 is a free upgrade for all existing Central Control 4 customers and is available right now!
