SUPPORTING US-BASED NETWORKS WITH REMOTE 'WORK FROM HOME' DEVICE CONTROL
Since TSL’s acquisition of DNF Controls in April 2019, the US team based out of Northridge, CA, has remained focused on the developing and supporting the Flex Control Network and range of Universal Control Panels.
“We have many customers across the US who use our Flex Control Network for critical production and playout in news-based Hub and Spoke systems that connect network stations. Due to heightened demands in remote broadcasts, we recently altered our R&D to service our Flex customers and assist them in response to the pandemic.” says Fred Scott, regional sales manager US at TSL (and former sales director for DNF Controls). “With many customers working remotely, rather than in-studio, we added a feature called ‘Web Keys’ that, when connected to any Universal Control Panel within the Flex Network, allows users to control devices situated in major hub and spoke installations across the United States from home.”Read More
Audio and Video Monitoring
Advances in technology enable the creation of ever more exciting content, as well as multiple possibilities for content delivery. Comprehensive audio monitoring tools are simply a ‘must have’ in order to help guarantee content quality and quality of service.
Control Systems Across Applications
With increasing demands on resources, budgets, and the rapid adoption of IP and remote production, it is more essential now than ever for control systems to be able to hide underlying system complexities so that operators can remain focused on making great content.
A Focus of Sports and Live Production
New, powerful tools for remote production also opens up applications for channel delegation and device control, which can all be delivered by using a system built on independent device protocol translation and intuitive interfaces that add flexibility and efficiency to operations.
ESSENTIAL GUIDE: PRACTICAL SDI AND IP
This Guide looks into the practical applications of SDI and IP. Although SDI is now a mature technology, it hasn’t always been that way and the current state of IP is not that dissimilar to SDI when it was first introduced over thirty years ago.
- SDI has been and continues to be a mature and stable standard for the distribution of video, audio and metadata in broadcast facilities. From its inception in the 1989 to the modern quad-link 12G-SDI available today, it has stood the test of time and even with the advent of IP and Ethernet, it shows no sign of waning.
- IP is making a significant impact in broadcast facilities throughout the world and is starting to show its true worth.
