Anyone hear if c4 is going to have any virtual announcements since CEDIA is online only this year?

I am waiting for a new touchscreen.  depending on the specs I'd grab a used T3 that may hit the market or suck it up for a newer device.

Lets wait and see - The Good Old T4 Touchscreen came and went - Could be back again ??

its been a few years so hopefully something new could turn up after all - with all this Covid 19 stuff will they be a impact on sales

With  people turning to IPads or using their phone more I can’t see why they would bother investing any more at the moment on a new touchscreen when the T3 does everything needed. Not sure what there is to gain. Would rather see the budget spent elsewhere.

IMHO a spec bump makes sense but not a total change

Then open up intercom to iPads. That’s what sells their hardware.

I think if they dont change will be tough to try and get the kind of money they charge for them...   You would think they have plenty of margin to keep the touchscreen more modern and up spec when needed.

I have a wall mounted iPad mini running C4 app in guided access mode. I would seriously consider changing out to a dedicated C4 panel if they came out with a new version. The iPad mini is ok, but takes seconds to connect and does not provide all functions of the touchscreen as noted above.

I saw on the audinate website that control4 has some products powered by dante but there has not been any release from control4 yet so it maybe a mistake or something being released soon.

When is C4’s cedia update?

I'm wondering the same thing, I searched and can't find it. Seems to be lumped in with Snap maybe.. Savant/Crestron/etc certainly have a heavy presence

So I see there is a new App which I am guessing is a precursor of a OS update on its way.  Looks like something has changed on the security proxy although it also looks like backwards compatibility may be an issue as the app isn’t working properly for me.  The security history option has vanished and been replaced by a history icon which has a filters option (which I would have expected to include the usual events, alarms and info but it doesn’t as far as I can see).  It does however include the option to choose a date range via a cool new date picker... I can see opportunity here.  That said, my history returns blank after lots of spinning... Prior to updating the app (ie on devices that I did not update on, my security history is just fine - thanks).

The history icon also appears on the camera screen (although I get an empty result set there too).  Not sure how this will be used (maybe history of motion detected recordings? Would be a massive step forward.)

There also appears to be a new snapshot camera view (or has that been there for a while?) where you can scroll through much bigger snapshots... Full screen width.  I suspect this may not be new and I may only be noticing it now...

Of course this may also just be a regular app update... the iStore only notes bug fixes...
