Extron Global Scripter brings the power of Python to the AV industry
Extron has announced that programmers have been certified around the globe to program control systems using Global Scripter.
Global Scripter leverages the power and intuitive nature of the Python programming language. Python is an efficient, object-oriented language that allows programmers to reuse code and save valuable development time.
Global Scripter works with the ControlScript Python library that uses familiar AV terms, making it easier to program AV control system projects. Together, this time-tested platform empowers control system developers to increase their productivity and achieve results. When combined with Extron Pro Series control hardware, Global Scripter and ControlScript give the user freedom in the way programmable control systems are delivered.
“With the addition of Extron control system programming, customers now have the most powerful tools available to build efficiently-designed, sophisticated control systems,” says Extron vice president of worldwide sales and marketing Casey Hall.
“By combining Extron’s Global Scripter IDE with the ControlScript custom Python library, we can offer a very user-friendly, robust programming platform for our customers worldwide.”
Python is an object-oriented programming language that is clean, easily readable, and editable. Unlike other AV programming languages, Python allows programmers to leverage the power of libraries, modules, and functions without the need to learn awkward syntax. With ample documentation available in print and on the Internet, there are numerous programming resources for novices and experts alike.
Access to Global Scripter and ControlScript is available to certified Extron Authorised Programmers. Additional programming support is available with Extron’s EQIP program, which provides resources to customers deploying Pro Series control systems.
Extron Qualified Independent Programming companies are carefully screened and selected to provide expert support for Extron control system projects.
