The AVP Interface

The Acuity Virtual Panel operates exactly the same as an A3 panel with a few exceptions:

  • Use the mouse wheel to zoom in/out on the control panel.
  • Click on the border of the menu window to move it around, or on the left or bottom border to make the window smaller.
  • Right-click on a source mnemonic to assign a different source to that button or different Bus Map for that ME.
  • Right-click and select Bank on a custom control mnemonic to assign the row to a different custom control bank.
  • Right-click and select Default Mnem Color on a custom control mnemonic to assign a different default mnemonic color to all the mnemonics on the panel.
  • Click AUX at the top of the panel to turn the Auxiliary Control Panel on or off.
  • Double-click on a custom control mnemonic to record to that custom control.
    • Start REC – start recording a standard custom control.
    • Start REL REC – start recording a relative custom control.
    • Stop REC – stop recording the custom control.
    • Cancel REC – cancel recording the custom control.
    • Change the name and mnemonic color of that custom control.
  • The responsiveness of the positioner on the Acuity Virtual Panel can be unexpected. It is recommended that an external SideStick be used for better positioner control.
  • You can only store and recall from the Hard Drive on the frame or the local drive in the ARP server.
  • There are no serial Remote ports or Tally ports on the Acuity Rack Panel.
  • If the connection to the Acuity Rack Panel is lost, a popup is shown asking you to refresh the webpage. This can happen if you shutdown the switcher or the panel is rebooting after an upgrade.
  • Memory recalls are easier to perform if the Quick Bank Select personality option is on.
  • You cannot store or recall files from the USB on the Acuity Rack Panel server. You must store or recall the files from the Local Disk and access it over the network. Point your file explorer to the localdisk folder on the server (\\##.##.##.##\localdisk). The user name is nobody and there is no password.
  • The panel sleep functionality is disabled for the Acuity Rack Panel.
