  • Description

Software version of CountDown2, for computer screen, using keyboard & mouse.

Soft Countdown

Soft CountDown is a clever piece of speaker timing software that allows for all the functions of our Countdown2 system to be set up and seen on a computer screen, it is easy to use and is operated with a normal keyboard and mouse.

When you purchase this conference timing system you will receive the Soft CountDown Expander dongle.

This has two roles;

1.  Protection of software from piracy and therefore, protection of your investment. Only needs to be plugged into the PC on its USB cable to enable the software.

2.  If the Expander is powered by the supplied 12V power supply, you can in addition to the screen output, send the selected timer to any of our standard range of digital displays, they are: Mini Display, Remote Display, Big Display and Maxi Display. For more information on each item, please go to the related products tab.

Product-Soft-Countdown-Expa

The Soft CountDown expander has two XLR outputs, which means two remote numeric displays can be driven (or use CD Splitter to for greater distance and number) as with the CountDown2.

Negative counting past zero is now possible and will apear on screen. At this time only the 12.5mm display will show the minus (-) sign all other displays will be updated as we work through stock.
