Fully integrated playout solutions
Supporting the most demanding broadcast necessities in a unified expandable environment, Central Control™ Playout Module features a deep set of versatile tools and the ability to adapt on the fly to last-minute changes. Eliminate transcoding needs with direct back-to-back playback of mixed elements with different frame rates, CODECs and wrappers. Scale automatically in SD/HD. Insert still and animated graphics, cue-tones, real time transition effects and text with the built-in engine.
Perfect balance between
flexibility and efficiency
The Central Control Ingest Module makes it easier than ever to ingest and prep video programming for broadcast. Encode two HD video sources simultaneously and integrate with the most common program and ad delivery services. The Ingest Module supports router control and manages all live feed recording with flexible scheduling tools. Show segments and breaks can be trimmed and in/out points set quickly with the built-in editor and registered for airplay. To ensure trouble free playback, the ingest module automatically validates format, screens the entire content, and conducts transcoding if required.
Interface with Traffic
and Business Systems
Central Control Management Module serves as the interface between traffic systems and playout automation. It supports BXF and other formats for scheduling, dubbing and purging. Playlists can be manually built or edited before they are applied to a channel. Media is neatly categorized and discoverable, with all media types supported (video, graphics, audio). Flexible template-driven tools allow a wide array of secondary events and automation workflows. Central Control Management is a powerful engine driving the complete end-to-end platform.
Central Control is designed to manage a few or very high channel count. Our multi-channel Control Panel provides broadcasters with the ability to manage remote processes from a central ops center. The system also lets local operations remain in control of their branding and ad insertion/live events. All transactions may be monitored by the Hub Monitoring Panel in real-time. Station wide content is processed at the central ops center and sent out to all remote stations, thereby eliminating duplication of effort and increasing operational efficiencies.
