IDS Core

Powerful GUI-based configuration software

At the heart of IDS is our configuration software, IDS Core which is usually installed on server but is also available as a software solution.

Designed in-house by our team of dedicated engineers and based on a Linux kernel, IDS Core provides a stable, centralised platform for all your system configuration and control. With its integrated logic processors, you can create screen layouts and logic maps, and manage all your connected devices. Connection can be made via KVM or locally.


IDS Screen Designer

IDS Screen Designer's intuitive drag-and-drop interface lets you create and save any number of informative display layouts. Customise clocks and cue lights or create your own control interfaces. Choose from a rich array of design elements, including video feeds, web pages and countdown timers. Create a library of your own image files and logos.

IDS Logic Builder

IDS Logic Builder takes your screen designs and lets you map their virtual inputs and outputs to real GPI signals, video feeds and time signals, by routing them to physical ports on IDS hardware and other third-party devices. The built-in logic functions, signal manipulation elements and I/O controls provide endless possibilities for logic maps to drive your displays.

IDS Connected Devices

IDS Connected Devices completes the circuit, allowing you to assign logic maps to the IDS Remoras controlling your display devices and interface with third-party devices and other IDS Accessories. The beauty of IDS lies in its centralised management – IDS Core controls your entire IDS network, every connected device and the layout of every display.

Your finished screen on a networked display

Time-critical broadcast information, control interfaces and mixed media content are delivered to networked displays and IDS Touchscreen control devices, while our cue lamps, noise level monitors and DMX controllers provide further visual feedback throughout your organisation.
