New groov View R3.5 release adds SNAP PAC I/O units, improves scalability

Posted by Jean Femia on Mar 19, 2018 3:00:00 PM

Just released! groov View R3.5a brings a new feature you've been waiting for: you can now connect to SNAP PAC I/O units directly, instead of going through a controller strategy, and use their tags in your groov View operator interface.  

In addition, the new release has been optimized to improve performance and responsiveness, especially when you have a large number of users. 

And all updates to your groov View interface are now automatically pushed out to users. No need to refresh screens.

Here's a closer look at these and other new features. (For details on bug fixes, see the groov View Readme.)
