At IBC 2019 (Stand 10.B41), TSL Products will demonstrate its thinking around control and management in ST-2110 IP networks in light of the work it is has been undertaking as members of the AMWA NMOS initiative.
TSL will also showcase updates to its advanced broadcast control system product offerings in addition to an expanded range of universal controls and display systems.
“In addition to showcasing our product lines, we are also hosting a technical demonstration at our booth that addresses device discovery and registration, device connection and management, and event and tally management,” said Mark Davies, Director of Products and Technology at TSL Products. “We will also be showing how our control solutions fit into key applications across the broadcast chain, allowing deep-dive conversations with customers on how they can build a control ecosystem that allows them to maintain ownership of these systems.”
TSL will demonstrate various new control functions as part of its advanced control offerings within mater control, playout and transmission. These updates include MOS Integration with ENPS and iNews to simplify newsroom production automation by allowing users to take control of the critical devices that they depend on. For playout automation, customers can now cost-effectively and easily create primary or backup/tertiary automation systems, with simple and reliable control over video and graphics playout devices for live programming. Additionally, users can also now manage, switch and distribute SCTE commands manually or via automated controls with real time monitoring and notifications when an event occurs.
Lastly, the addition of delegation and control routing, means customers can dynamically allocate access to and control playout and branding resources as needed among multiple control rooms to create a highly adaptable, scalable and configurable control infrastructure, whilst delegating exclusive control by schedule or on-demand.
Launching at IBC 2019, is a range of new universal control surfaces and interfaces, including the IP Control Buddy as well as of its line of Anything Interface Boxes. TSL’s IP Control Buddy is a powerful yet compact system that controls any GPI/O-, Serial- and IP-enabled device. Scaling from one to four buttons, the IP Control Buddy can perform simple ‘on/off’-style actions or trigger complex salvos, and its compact size makes it perfect for flyaway kits and quick-press production tasks.
The company’s range of Anywhere Interface Boxes (AIBs) are designed specifically for A/V, radio, industrial and TV broadcasting market segments, and allow users to bridge systems and achieve optimal functionality without performing any programming. For device management and interface flexibility, the AIB series offers up to 16 GPI/Os and multiple device control paths, with the AIB-4 also providing Ethernet, 2-way DTMF and dial-up modem. The AIBs transport GPIs and On-Air tallies into the field, wherever you need them – across cities, states and even continents – remotely. Configuration for any control and monitoring application is made easy with the ‘programmer-free’ web browser.
