Aurora Multimedia Debuts ReAX as Non-Proprietary IP Control Based on AV/IT Standards

Aurora Multimedia just announced ReAX, what they are calling the industry’s first non-proprietary IP Control based on AV/IT industry standards. The name ReAX represents action/reaction which is the essence of control automation. Aurora says ReAX is is not limited to a single manufacturer but to all who qualify and they say it is not limited there as IR libraries, macros and more can all be shared and organized in a single location at the organizations’ website.

ReAX server-side operations is based on JavaScript. This language standard is taught in schools and commonly used on most websites. Client-side operations for touch panels and web interfaces can be HTML, JavaScript, etc. And, Aurora claims that to the end user, it will appear and operate as any other control system. As a result, a variety of manufacturers can offer their flavor of ReAX (think Android OS for control).

A new small ARM processor option board (IPE-REAX-1) has been created to add ReAX to Aurora’s new HT Series HDBaseT product line, VLX Series 1G AV over IP and IPX Series 10G AV over IP. This compact PC board (1.84″x.784″) will add automation to HDBaseT and AV-over-IP eliminating the need for an external control processor. It can run as a single unit for the entire system or multiple can be installed to segment or make the system redundant. The IPE-REAX-1 board will be made available for other manufacturers to utilize for faster deployment.

Aurora’s Core Creator tools (Core-I & Core-C), will allow drag and drop creation of interfaces and control code. Since the generated code is based on JavaScript it can be modified after generation.
