FAQ & SUPPORT

Visit SPX Knowledge Base or open the chat for instant answers.
SPX... what? What is it called?
GC, SPX-GC, SmartPX Graphics Contoller or just SPX - everything means the same.
The name comes from "SmartPX", the company behind the Graphics Controller. From the launch we have used the abbreviation "SPX-GC" as the name of the app - but you spoke and we listened..,
Let's just call it "SPX" from now on.
Going forward we will use https://spx.graphics as the official URL of the project.
Why is it free?
Our business model is in creating custom templates , functionality and technical integrations for our users and customers.
For us it makes perfect sense to keep SPX free to use for everybody.
But maintaining and developing takes time and resources. Want to help? Go and buy a template 👍
Is there a roadmap for SPX development?
Yes there is.
This website, the Template Store, Excel file support, Knowledge Base, Stream Deck control API and many others are items which were ticked off from the development roadmap in the past.
There are exciting new features on the roadmap still, such as Social Media Playout, automated playlists, mobile view for rundowns and much more.
We are also interested in hearing from you. Read the article for more and also give your feedback.
Who is SPX for?

Where can I get templates?
You can use and customize templates which comes with the software.
