connectCAD’s community device spec library is growing. Thanks to the input of designers from all over the world, our shared library now holds specs of more than 400 devices, ready to use with one click and getting away with the tedious task of doing data entry.
Our library includes some widely used brands like Black Magic, BMD, Christie, Cisco, Netgear, Panasonic, QSC and also smaller manufacturers.
Entering, retrieving and sharing device definitions is a matter of a few clicks. All you need to do is open the Device Builder, type-in the name of your device and, if its specs exist in connectCAD’s online library, you can select the make and the model and all available data are entered in your schematic.
When adding a device in your drawing, you may find some data is missing or is not accurate. In this case, you can fill in or correct what is needed and upload the revised specs online. If you cannot find what you are looking for, just enter the specs of your new device from scratch and contribute to the shared library can so that it can soon include all kinds of devices used for any type of audiovisual project around the world.
Using a conventional software, it normally takes an average of 20 mouse clicks to create and add a device into your drawing. So, with more than 400 devices ready to use, connectCAD’s online device spec library helps save up to 8000 clicks, making your design workflow faster and easier, saving hours of form-filling and avoiding carpal tunnel syndrome.
