There's an art to designing control system screens.
They should be easy to understand, even for someone who has never used an AV system or a control system before. They should be comprehensive, automating all of the functions of the system and the room. They should be secure, preventing unauthorized users from making adjustments. They may be multi-level, offering more sophisticated users more options while giving novices only what they need. They should be bug-free, of course, but also easy to update should you decide to add or change system components.
Other design considerations include the type and size of the control system and control screen, whether to
use wired or wireless panels, if the controls will be networked, with access by support and maintenance
people, and whether the system will help you with inventory control, prevent theft, or minimize power usage
and maximize equipment life.
