Advanced Broadcast Control Systems

Whether you work in live production at large broadcast facilities, OB broadcast remotes or a
live-to-tape studio environment, the aim is always to produce great content. TallyMan Advanced Broadcast Control simplifies complex broadcast workflows to allow operators to focus on the task at hand.

Powerful functions and complete third-party interface capability:

  • Device control using a powerful built-in logic engine which is both flexible and efficient.
  • Real-time signal flow to manage all content and process flows.
    Process automation that defines auto responses to system changes and reduces head count and training.
  • Global name management with automatic import/export between devices.
  • User-designed and built and tailored to workflows with total system control that reduces user error and provides real-time feedback.
  • Distribute information via IP, serial and GPI to meet the capabilities of all equipment, new and existing.

Small and Large Facilities

  • Customised to the requirements of users in all areas of the facility.
  • Modular approach for critical data sharing whilst providing a unified redundancy system.
  • Virtual panels communicate directly with any controller in a system.
  • Remote via A/V over IP, carrying and returning feeds for monitoring and performing robotic camera control.

Outside broadcast presents unique challenges. With the increased adoption of 4K and standardisation on 5.1 audio operators are working in an ever-changing environment that requires complete control and accurate information. TallyMan simplifies operations to make production faster, simpler and more efficient.

Powerful Third Party Interface

New protocols are added to TallyMan as they become available. TallyMan interfaces to all known switchers, routers and multiviewers and is supplied with all the protocols to interface provide the up most flexibility and allowing you to choose best of breed and best fit with confidence.

Other features and functions:

  • Process Automation
    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.

  • TallyMan Virtual Panel
    TallyMan Virtual Panel is a simple client application that runs on a computer or tablet and visually represents the task at hand. This is particularly useful in live events where quick understanding and reaction to changing events is vital.
