WORLD NEWS Serving digital graphics at Wimbledon Runing like clockwork from the helm R ascular, the leading supplier of PC-based multi-device control, has announced the expansion of its flagship PC-based control and monitoring technology Helm with Clockwork. This brand new application allows users to create scheduled events where simple or more complex workflows can be triggered automatically at a pre-defined time of day, freeing up operators to concentrate on other vital tasks. Clockwork - via the creation of a simple Helm panel - allows broadcasters and playout providers to schedule a huge range of different events using Helms control of third-party hardware (branding devices, routers, video servers, VTRs, multi-image display processors and modular gear). These events could include switching  a router, triggering  a server to record an incoming feed, or the automated control of audio ingest... the list goes on. www.rascular.com E yeheight returned to the field this month for the latest in a series of recent sport successes.
