Virtument is MatDeck’s virtual PC instrumentation panel that can be used in conjunction with a MatDeck Document or independently. The Codeless Virtument Panel (included in MatDeck) is used to receive and display data as well as send and write data to hundreds of compatible hardware or MatDeck document(s).
Both MatDeck and Virtument can connect to an IP address in order to receive and transmit information. This means that the information can also be processed whilst its being sent and received using various mathematical functions in. MatDeck functions can do a incredibly vast amount go things, including DSP functions, DSP tool kits and various GUIs; all these reducing the amount of code needed for such complex work (for users that prefer to write in code), however Virtument itself is a codeless virtual instrumentation panel.
MatDeck also uses GUIs for signal processing and many more fields such as Audio Testing, DSP and more. Our MD GUIs are highly customizable to allow for the perfect solution as well as to be used of a variety of purposes. As mentioned before, MatDeck can communicate with a few hundred other devices using our flagship configuration forms which allows for codeless communication with all these devices meaning that no experience or knowledge is required.
Using a Virtual Instrument Panel with Hardware
For all instruments, the user can edit and alter the scale, font, colours, frame and a variety of other features, meaning a bespoke instrument panel can be made in minutes, while still being incredibly practical and professional as well as sending and receiving data in real time.
(For examples see our audio equaliser or DSP GUIs pages).
For more information, please visit the data acquisition page. A custom MatDeck API can be added by our team to connect our software to any data acquisition and processing data boards and units.
Virtument virtual instrumentation modules:
- Gauges – squared, circular, linear…
- Switches – rotary and toggle
- Buttons – tact and push
- Sliders – horizontal vertical
- Plotter – data graph rolling in real time
- VU meter gauges
- Lamps, indicators
- Import images
- Text boxes
- Temperature meter
- and more
The illustration below shows the Virtument instrument panel and the MatDeck software connected to the IP address as well as external data acquisition and processing data unit and boards.
For all of the instrument modules you can edit and change scale, font, colours, frame and various features. You can easily create a custom instrument panel.
