Pentek, Inc., today announced the SystemFlow Simulator for its Talon® analog and digital recording systems. The SystemFlow Simulator includes a virtual recorder server application that simulates disk and I/O transactions for a complete and realistic recording environment. Using either the standard SystemFlow graphical user interface (GUI) or the SystemFlow application programming interface (API), the virtual server provides live, interactive operation for training or development. The user can easily switch between different recording systems in the Talon recording system product line. The common user interface (UI) and API provides a simple transition from one Talon recorder to another.
“The Talon recording system simulator makes it easy for our customers to take a test drive of our powerful SystemFlow user interface,” stated Rodger Hosking, vice president of Pentek. “Developers of custom user interfaces can also gain a significant time-to-market advantage by using the API package to develop software in advance of receiving the system.”
The SystemFlow Simulator demonstrates actual Configuration, Record, Playback and Status screens of the standard GUI, each with intuitive controls and indicators. It also includes the SystemFlow Signal Viewer to display simulated live signals being digitized and recorded by a Pentek analog signal recorder. The SystemFlow Signal Viewer includes a virtual oscilloscope and spectrum analyzer for signal monitoring in both time and frequency domains.
Developers have the option of using the SystemFlow API as an invaluable tool for developing their own UI to control the Talon recording system. The UI can be tested against the simulator prior to receipt of a Talon recorder, saving valuable development time. The simulator can be controlled locally or remotely via the socket-based client-server architecture. This allows system engineers to setup and test remote control of their recording system before it is received.
System profiles containing all parameters and operational modes for specific recording sessions can be created and saved in the simulator for later use in the Talon recording system.
The SystemFlow Simulator is provided in 32- and 64- bit Windows 7 Professional operating system versions. Qualified developers can download and install the SystemFlow Simulator to experience the UI prior to purchasing a recorder.
Pricing and Availability
The SystemFlow Simulator is free to download to qualified Talon recording system developers and evaluators. Developers should contact Pentek at 201-818-5900 or [email protected] to be qualified to receive the download.
