The newest app from Alford Media Services, sponsored by Barco, is your wireless controller for Barco’s family of presentation switchers. The ScreenPRO-II Controller, the Small Encore Controller, the Large Encore Controller, the FSN switcher, and the Event Master's line of products (E2 and S3) are all now at your fingertips on your iPad or iPad Mini. It also has direct HTML access to control the ImagePRO-II and the new PDS series of digital switchers embedded in the app.
For the ScreenPRO-II and Encore Presentation Switcher Controllers you can Learn, Delete and Copy Presets to the controller and you can Edit the text color and transition duration on each preset button in the app. It’s totally customizable. You can re-sequence the preset buttons in the app by holding them down and dragging them to the desired location and you can reset it to default with the touch of a button. The app has buttons for Clear Layer All, Cut and an animated Auto-trans button. It even shows you, which preset is currently selected just above the Clear Layer All button.
The Alford Control ToolKit gives you the capability to save the apps preset button settings to a show file within the app that you can recall and even share via e-mail. The custom .alf file can then be opened on any other iPad running the Alford Kit.
If you are connected to a Encore Controller the app will give you access up to 900 preset buttons. When connecting to a ScreenPRO-II the app will give you access to 36 presets.
The app has an easy connect/disconnect button for Wi-Fi access to the various controllers and there is a button for connecting to the ImagePRO-II or PDS series switchers.
When you are connected to a Barco FSN Presentation Switcher, the app will only recall presets and will only perform an Auto-trans All due to the nature of the FSN’s built-in software.
Please note: The app does not go to sleep because it is being used in a live event situation so it is recommend that you plug in your iPad or iPad Mini whenever possible to maintain a charge.

Ratings and Reviews
Ver. 1.3.3 currently broken
It seems that some of the recent Event Master updates have broken the app. Any timeline for fixing the app or has it run it's course?
This new version crashes upon opening on both of my iPads. Please fix. I want E2 control, but I can't lose Encore and FSN control now while this is broken.
Helps a lot
Installed this to work our FSR Eagel controller (same as Barco small switcher). It is really great to be able to access quickly any preset without having to change pages on the switcher. Also nice that you can easily name to buttons for fast recognition.
Really a great app!
