The KISS Principle

KISS is an acronym for “Keep It Simple, Stupid” as a design principle noted by the U.S. Navy in 1960. The KISS principle states that most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complex, therefore simplicity should be a key goal in design and unnecessary complexity should be avoided.

 

 

The Network Answer

 

Technology and its related fields have become a very demanding business. As audiences all over the world are ever more expecting to be amazed visiting theme-parks, museums, live shows, movies and many other types of venues, designing the technical solutions that are needed to be able to create and control the complex systems for these settings can be challenging.

Ethernet has become the standard transport method for a wide variety of protocols. It has found its way from the office environment in to many other areas where low-cost and high reliability networking is required.

Within the entertainment industry we see a growing trend in using the Ethernet as the preferred infrastructure, more and more control systems are evolving into network based distributed systems.

Using our Transceiver solutions can greatly simplify the control protocol handling in your system.

KissBox provides flexible solutions to transmit-receive and control protocol-data like MIDI, DMX, RS232/422/485, LTC-Timecode, Contact-Closure, Analog Control-voltage and more, over standard Ethernet networks, with minimum and controlled latency.

KissBox gives you the possibility to set up a distributed control network, utilising standard “off the shelf” Ethernet infrastructure building blocks. In addition to our control system products we also offer a range of solutions for computer based musical systems.

KissBox is one of the frontrunners when it comes to transporting the Midi protocol over Ethernet, and interfacing with “non network” based musical equipment
