HIVE Touch

All-In-One User Interface and Control System

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The Hive Touch, initially designed as a standalone and single-room AV control system, now transcends these boundaries as a synergistic solution, through Hive Node functionality and the innovative Room Combo feature. This POE-powered touch panel retains its simplicity as an intuitive user interface with a 10.1-inch multi-touch display, while expanding its capabilities to manage 2 to 100 rooms by connecting with other Hive Touches or Hive Nodes. The Hive Touch, equipped with the Hive AV App, continues to offer easy setup and command without the need for external software, embodying a blend of simplicity and expanded functionality.

    • Complete Versa-4k and Hive Node Integration: The Hive Touch is engineered to integrate  with Versa-4k systems and the Hive Node Relay, RS-232 and IR Kits, establishing a cohesive and powerful AV control network that simplifies the management of complex systems.
    • Software-Free Setup: Designed with user convenience in mind, the Hive Touch eliminates the need for any additional software, allowing for all configurations and setups to be completed directly from the front panel, ensuring a user-friendly experience.
    • Independent Network Operation: Emphasizing security and reliability, the Hive Touch is uniquely capable of operating on an isolated AV network, removing the dependency on internet connections or cloud services, and ensuring your AV control remains private and uninterrupted.
    • Simplified Connectivity with POE: The Hive Touch is designed for ease of installation, requiring nothing more than a standard POE network switch to power up, simplifying the infrastructure needed for deployment.

The Hive Touch is innovation in AV control, merging the functionality of both a standalone system and a user interface into a single POE-powered All-In-One touch panel. Its expansive 10.1-inch multi-touch screen, equipped with the Hive AV App, simplifies setup and facilitates single-room control, negating the need for any special software installations. The inherent design of the Hive Touch eliminates the dependency on on-premise servers, external control systems, or cloud connections, embodying a self-sufficient solution.

The integration with Versa-4K AVoIP encoders and decoders through the Hive AV App allows for the creation of an extensive matrix switch, incorporating control points for displays and sources via IR, RS-232, and CEC. The versatility of the Hive Touch extends even further when paired with Hive Node Kits, introducing Relay control and Sensor Triggers alongside the existing RS-232 and IR functionalities. This expanded control capability highlights the Hive Touch's transition from a singular, room-specific solution to a pivotal component in the Room Combo feature, enabling seamless integration with other Hive Touches or Nodes to manage environments ranging from 2 to 100 rooms.

Hive AV's driverless direct control over TCP/IP offers unparalleled power and audio management for most connected devices, simplifying the setup process with integrators in mind. This approach ensures a straightforward setup experience that automatically generates a user interface without the need for graphic designers or control system programmers. End users are presented with an intuitive interface for managing complex systems, while IT or room technology managers benefit from the enhanced uptime of critical conference spaces, accompanied by minimal maintenance demands.
