Highlighting PC-based video playout control and media management systems

Think Control, Think Rascular

We create PC-based video playout control and media management systems. Bespoke or off-the-shelf, our applications work across SDI and IP technologies and allow operators to access precisely the functions they need, essential in hectic operational environments. As we all know, the ability to easily publish content to social media platforms like Facebook Live be that live streaming of specific social media content, repurposing of an existing live broadcast or streaming content at a later time/date is moving from being optional to essential.

Our technologies allow media companies cost-effective control and management across hybrid playout environments. User-defined screen layouts provide precision access to on-air and off-air third-party technologies. This gives operators crucial touch-of-a-button control of manual and automated media preparation and channel playout, be that IP or SDI.

Helm Live: effortless control of streaming encoders publishing to Facebook Live
Operators need simple, easy-to-use panels that remove unnecessary complexity. Helm Live provides exactly this: direct control of streaming content to dominant social media platform Facebook Live. Its powerfully simple and cost-effective. Operators can use the Helm Live PC user interface or associated, device-independent web panels. Helm Live provides control of both streaming encoders and Facebook Live via an interface that removes all unnecessary complexity. This allows a tight integration for broadcasters and playout providers between broadcast devices and streaming content. Operators can quickly and easily control both the streaming encoder and Facebook Live from a single screen. Helm Live communicates with Facebook using the latters Graph API. Because it supports all the Graph API features, an incredibly wide range of applications is possible, both for delivering content including of course live video and monitoring the audience for that content.

RouteTimer: Time-of-Day automated router switching

We have also recently created a cost-effective solution to provide automated time-of-day router switching using a self-contained, PC-based router control panel, which provides both manual and automated time-of-day switching. Its called RouteTimer.

Features include:
¢ Standard Router control panel(s)
¢ Clockwork dialog to set time-of-day switching
¢ Single PC licence
¢ Controls a single router up to 64 inputs x 64 outputs
¢ System configuration via the standard control panel

We will also be highlighting our ongoing development of control technologies for hybrid and pure IP broadcast routers.

Electropop Powerhouse M and Oslash; Goes On Tour With DPA Microphones
Danish singer/songwriter Karen Marie Ørsted Andersen, better known by her stage name MØ, has a distinctive musical style that combines electronic elements and big samples with live drums, guitar and vocals. For her long time Front of House engineer Jon Schumann, transporting her music into a live environment is challenging because it brings some very modern production issues to the fore – not least how to best amplify MØ’s voice and the live musicians so that they integrate seamlessly with the electronic samples.
