Rockford Corp. Chooses AnyChart Solution March 30th, 2011 by Margaret Skomorokh

It is great to have a lot of different clients in various industries. Today we publish another success story, this time about a company from the Electronic Equipment industry.

Rockford Corporation manufactures audio electronics, speakers & accessories. Since 1973, the company provides outstanding mobile audio solutions. It has also designed the industry’s first online woofer enclosure recommendation and modeling application called the RFTECH:Woofer BoxAdvisor, which allows to plot either theoretical or real in-car acoustical transfer functions.

The application uses AnyChart extensively. According to Eric Russell, WebWizard and Technical Writer for Rockford Fosgate, RFTECH:Woofer BoxAdvisor “is very functional due to AnyChart’s dynamic flash charts and gauges with real-time updating.”

However, charts, along with some other data visualization methods, are a very refined and expressive tool, so they are able to reproduce more elevated meanings as well and even can become a kind of art. These splendid prospects inspire us so much that we have introduced a new tag – Charts and Art.

  • In “PercentChanges” calculation mode of Y scales, negative values will be handled correctly.
  • All interactive elements will correctly handle redrawing and update their focuses after data or event markers commits.
  • The bug that in some conditions forces the chart to calculate maximum on scatter will be fixed.

  • Incorrect work of the external JavaScript method removeEventMarkerGroup() will be fixed.
