Description

This app is a remote control for the SoundBox Windows software, typically used by congregations of Jehovah's Witnesses to manage audio and visual media and the timing of each part of the meeting.

You MUST have the SoundBox Windows software installed on a computer to use this app.


REMOTE APP FEATURES
---------------------------------

Timers for each Meeting Part:
- free up the brother on the box from having to control the timers
- start/stop/reset timers
- collapse meeting sections
- timer changes from white > yellow (30 secs) > red (overtime)
- sound bell for student parts that go overtime
- optionally hide the start/stop buttons in settings for "read-only" mode
- email a summary of timers

Fullscreen Timer in Landscape:
- optimised for use on the speakers podium
- tap the clock to hide the Timer if it is distracting
- view the Next Song
- change the screen brightness

Media Controls:
- all media for the current meeting
- play/pause/stop videos
- play/stop audio
- show/hide images
- comprehensive slideshow support
- show/hide websites and pdf files
- progress bar for playback of video+audio

Optional Song Controls:
- view queued songs for the meeting
- add/change songs
- play/stop songs and background music
- optionally hide the songs tab in settings

Media will be grouped into the Meeting Sections (Treasures, Ministry, Living) and listed in sequential order.

A speaker can control their images or other media from the podium.

The app can be run on multiple devices at the same time. For example, the meeting chairman can view the timers and could decide to ring the bell for a student talk if it is running overtime. Another brother from the sound department could be sitting in his seat in the audience starting/stopping the timers for each talk. And of course the fullscreen timer could be running on a device the podium.

While the app is running, it will prevent the device from turning off. This can be disabled in settings.

The Bell can be played from the local device or from the main SoundBox computer. If it is played from the local device the app will detect the current volume setting, switch it to 100% to play the bell, and then set the volume back to its previous setting. This prevents the device from playing unwanted sounds from other apps and notifications. And of course you are always asked to confirm before the Bell is played - just in case you hit the button by mistake.

This app is optimised for all iOS devices - iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad. Split Screen mode is supported on iPad.

Wow! Very Useful!! Thanks!

This app just keeps getting better and better! The last time I used it I accidentally stopped a talk while I watching the timing. I was Chairman and fine fine brother just updated the app to make sure that those of us with "fumble fingers" don't accidentally mess up the timing for the brother at the sound control. This is really a great app thank you so much for all the hard work you put into it! GF (TN)

Thank you

I realize that support for Soundbox will end next year but did want to give you thanks for your work. We have been using Soundbox and remote at the meetings for a year or longer. It makes operating the sound, images and video so much smoother than we were used to. Thank you for sharing Soundbox. And Soundbox Remote.

Very nice

Used it on Sunday for the very first time. Downloaded it just before the meeting and it was simple enough for me to use right away. I was able to control the pictures from my iPad right from the stage!
