For those with programmable control devices that wish to add direct control of Attero Tech devices, the unIFY Software API document contains details of the 3rd Party UDP protocol and the commands that each device supports. This is available in the "Third Party API" folder. Click for the 3rd Party Integration Documents.
Firmware Compatibility Note
There are two control interface types available for Attero Tech Dante devices. Each interface type requires different firmware to be loaded into the device. The first type is a Dante proprietary interface(-C) which is typically used by already have built-in support for Attero Tech devices. The other firmware option enables a 3rd party UDP interface and is available to anyone to use with a device capable of forming and sending a UDP message as well as receiving and parsing the response.
Products can be ordered with either command interface to support an installation's system control requirements. To specify a specific interface, note the required product suffix as follows:
Symetrix Radius DSP
Biamp Tesira DSP
3rd Party UDP
QSC Q-SYS, Crestron, AMX, anything else
During use, the type of control interface for an active device can be identified with unIFY Control Panel application. The command interface type is shown in the selected device's popup context menu by right-clicking on the device name in the list of available device.
If for any reason the command interface of a device needs to be changed to allow for control integration in the intended system, it can be re-programmed using the "Smart Firmware Update" utility found within unIFY Control Panel v2.3.0 and newer. When applying firmware, unIFY will show the control interface options. Simply select either "-U" or "-B/C" and apply the update to alter the control interface type.
