The essence of a unified control system is to make it easy and error-free to operate, focus training and optimise the work space. The ability to design virtual control panels to do what is required and no more is critical.

Systems such as robotic camera systems and routers with logic control capabilities exist to make broadcast workflows more efficient. But whilst they provide a certain level of efficiency, they still lack vital component cooperation. TallyMan takes the efficiency found in automated systems and multiplies it to dramatically reduce production costs.
Hybrid 4K / HD Systems
TallyMan turns existing HD systems into intelligent hybrid HD/4K systems that change operation automatically with no user input. In the case of 4K in an HD infrastructure, multiple signals - 4 HD-SDI - must be routed around the facility in unison. TallyMan will automatically route these signals as one and provide users with familiar 1:1 X-Y control, completely eliminating the learning curve with no change to normal day to day operations.
Scaling and Resilience
For most broadcasters, mission critical systems have to be resilient. Single points of failure are generally considered too high a risk. TallyMan provides a platform for failovers, and in turn its architecture allows you to build resilient control structures.
