AVW Controls Ltd
Since its initial development in 1997, Impressario has become a recognised industry player, winning the prestigious award for Product of the Year in
the Engineering category at the ABTT show in June 2002.
The main feature of Impressario is that advanced motion control is available through a very easy interface. Most users can grasp the basics in as little
as ten minutes, yet are able to plot potentially stunning scenery changes. Other systems on the market require very expert users to perform even the
most mundane of tasks and often put theatres in the untenable position of having to employ specially trained operators - of which there are too few. It
has a generous 30000 cue capacity, advanced cue following facilities, group control and synchronisation of multiple motors, on the fly speed control
of multiple motors, a virtual reality simulator and can control up to 255 fixed speed or variable speed motorised or hydraulic scenery pieces.
Impressario consists of a computer control console and purpose designed motion control modules. The computer console contains a proprietary
single board PC loaded with the Impressario software, which records all the cue data that is transmitted to the IMP modules on a high-speed data
network. The IMP modules carry out the necessary maths to calculate the motion profile required and are hardwired to the motor/hydraulic drive to
achieve the desired motion.
