Welcome to Technology 151, covering Thinklogical's SMP2 Control System & Control Hardware. This course is estimated 3-4 hours completion, and is required for further continued education.

The SMP2 Software Package Thinklogical’s System Management Portfolio 2.0 includes a specialized software package that provides powerful remote management and maintenance capabilities, making it easier for users to configure, operate and update Thinklogical signal extension and switching systems of any size. 

Among the key enhancements of SMP2: 

• The ability of the OSD to recognize the number of connected monitors. 

• The ability to create Pools. 

• Configurable security classification levels. 

• Includes Dashboard, a software package used to configure the network interfaces, manage services and to enable and manage redundancy and file synchronization. 

The intuitive graphical user interface enables fast set-up and control of each Matrix Switch (also called a Switch or Router) in the system. Tabs along the bottom of the screen allow users to navigate effortlessly through the Drag N Drop, Connection and Macros pages. The Drag N Drop Graphical User Interface makes it easy for users to visualize their workstations onscreen and switch Sources and Destinations by simply moving an icon. 

As room configurations evolve over time, icons representing Sources and Destinations can be added or removed from the layout as required, making it simple to adapt to changing requirements without moving a single cable or wire.

About the instructor

Training Manager, BSEE, MSIT, MBA

Tom Orazietti

My name is Tom Orazietti and have been overseeing and implementing the Thinklogical training efforts since 2021. Prior to Thinklogical, I spent the better part of a decade with Sikorsky Aircraft Naval Hawk, VH, and Black Projects as an Electrical Engineer, several years leading a Research & Development team pursuing cutting edge Internet of Things solutions, and a few years as the IT and Software Development Director for an international telecommunications installation company. Throughout my career, I have continuously engaged in higher education tutoring, adjunct teaching, as well as Engineering, IT, and AV consulting.

In 2021, I was given the opportunity to combine all aspects of my experience and lead the training efforts of Thinklogical with the directive to provide ample opportunities for partners and customers to have hands-on time with our equipment. Since 2022 when COVID restrictions were finally loosened, we have offered a complementary training every month as well as provide options for on-site training events during off weeks.

If you have any questions, comments, or requests, please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly, or email [email protected] to reach our entire team!
