ControlWorks will utilize the fonts to create a new look for the sample user interface (UI) of the company’s updated control module for Logitech Squeezebox, and the company will distribute the fonts with the module to make programming more convenient for integrators.
ControlWorks’ Squeezebox version 11 module introduces Series-3 processor compatibility, SystemBuilder compatibility, several performance enhancements, and new options for smaller user interfaces. In addition to accessing online music sources, the module also allows for browsing and playback of the user’s local MP3 library.
For the module, Guifx’s v2 Transports font package creates a more intuitive user experience with 58 commonly used audio and video transport symbols, according to the company. To improve usability even further, the Guifx v2 Transports Labeled font is unique in that it also features the icon’s label directly below the icon.
Both fonts are available as a free download.
“Guifx has been an important resource for ControlWorks since the release of the Series 02 templates. The company has consistently elevated the graphical UI experience, an area that typically gets little attention by the control system programmer,” said Jim Felderman, president of ControlWorks Consulting. “With the release of version 11 of our Logitech Squeezebox module, we are happy to include the Guifx v2 Transports font package. This not only makes our module demonstration panels look better, but also makes the installation process easier for the Crestron dealer utilizing our module and the sample UI.”
“ControlWorks is very well regarded in our industry, and it’s a pleasure to include the company in our growing list of distinguished Guifx font licensees,” said Morgan Strauss, president at Guifx. “Offering a sleek look and improved usability, our v2 Transports font package is simply the best of its kind, and our goal is to make it the industry standard. We welcome all industry partners to apply for a license.”
