Prodigy Composer Is Here!

I downloaded Prodigy Composer a couple days ago and quickly went thru setting up a fake system. I spent about an hour configuring a 4 zone system with a hand held remote, an in-wall touchscreen an iphone & xpanel interface. I added lighting and climate control also. When i was done i was able to open it in System Builder to polish it up. I don’t have the hardware to test with yet so i don’t know if i am really done programming after an hour. The Destiny template looks very nice. It appears to operate just like a System Builder generated system. While i wont be able to comment on functionality just yet, i have to say that programming was quite painless.

These links will take you to a few screenshots of the xpanel destiny interface. I did not post them because they are larger than my blog layout and i haven’t figured out the gallery tool just yet :).

    What are the numbers at the top of the screens (8, 32).

    I wrote you up here: http://www.cepro.com/article/first_glimpse_of_crestron_prodigy_programming/K454

    Glad you like the way it works. I have recieved a few questions as to why you ‘used System Builder to polish it up’ care to give a bit more detail?

    The numbers represent ‘join feedback data’. I made that term up just now FYI :). 8 is the serial join number that would call up the DEVICE NAME from the processor (in this instance). Its an 8 in software but it would be “DirecTV” on the touchpanel. 32 would be “Blu-ray”. Programming dictates that join 32 will display the Blu-ray device name in that indirect text block.

    In this example the numbers 39,40,41,42 represent feedback data from climate control. Temperature set points and scheduler information. 34 is the room name.

    CrestronHQ, to be honest.. i have not ‘polished it up’ yet. I am waiting for hardware. As far as i can tell.. prodigy has produced a fully functional.. done.. system that wont need any polishing.

    ‘Polish it up” meant that i was going to polish it up if it needed it. I understand the GUI from looking at it in vtpro but i still want to see it operate live before i give up tweaking it :). I read your comment at facebook about me wanting to put my stamp on it :).

    Destiny and this iphone template (not sure what its called other than Crestron Control) function and look just fine.

    Having followed you on AVS forums, remote central and comments on Julie Jacobson’s I gathered that you had a good moderate overview of things but also wanted to be able to have your clients projects have that unique -however slight or grand- twist.

    thanks for the claification – and the blog is excellent (in general, not just the Prodigy items)
