Overture is Barco’s software-based A/V Control solution that uses the company’s normal network infrastructure to manage all A/V devices. Unlike conventional systems, which use proprietary programming languages and are overwhelmingly hardware-based and distributed, Overture software only needs to be configured. Therefore the system can be set up quickly and easily.

Software-based A/V control over the standard IP network
To add a device, you simply connect it to the IP network, configure it with Overture’s web-based interface… and that’s it. The software follows a natural and logical way of working, which means that every IT or facility team member can handle system set-up and maintenance. Furthermore, the meeting room’s user interface can be deployed on any device that has a network connection and a web browser, eliminating the need for expensive proprietary touch panels.
By adding alerts, the support team can be warned when certain events occur – for example an overheating projector – so they can take immediate action. Because Overture centrally monitors AV equipment, technical staff can remotely troubleshoot and correct issues for the entire company using Overture’s Help Desk interface, significantly reducing time to solution and in-room interventions.
No proprietary hardware needed
In stark contrast to traditional A/V Control systems, Overture does not rely on proprietary hardware and runs on cheaper, thoroughly tested off-the-shelf hardware – further reducing costs and increasing reliability.
