|| Routing and automation solutions
for broadcast and telecommunications.
For video service providers, the security features make it particularly applicable to situations where many different users need to access a system for their own private routing of video or information.
For broadcasters, it provides comprehensive
facilities for the scheduling and play-out of program material and commercials,
plus the control of video sources such as VCR's and digital video stores.
Multiple sites can be centrally controlled.
The SwitchPro software can be configured to allow customers to
securely access a service provider's network. They can then directly carry out
scheduling and control on their own private virtual network and also connect to
ports on other user's networks by mutual agreement.
User groups can be created in which rights can be assigned defining the
channels and equipment that users can control.
Other facilities can also be assigned rights, such as the
ability to create schedule events, configure devices, set port lockouts etc.
With access possible by local or wide area networks, dial-up connection,
Internet or intranet, the software can support diverse requirements. Users
anywhere on the network can access and control multiple sites at dispersed
Signals can be automatically routed through tie lines. This enables single
takes or scheduled events to connect ports on different routers at multiple
locations. It can also be used to provide facilities such as automatic format
There is automatic route optimisation, and look-ahead for
tie line oversuse.
Powerful, yet simple to use scheduling tools are included. Combined with a
library system, this enables events to be scheduled for single or repeated
execution. Real-time display of event status is provided, along with on-screen
warnings if faults occur or operator intervention is required. Facilities for
triggering by GPI inputs or operator control enable use for commercial
The modular design of the system allows easy adaptation as your requirements
change. It can begin at simple single site control, and expand to multi-site
control and scheduling, adding sophisticated access control and reporting, as
The software has an excellent record for reliability and is used in mission critical 24/7 systems around the world.
Dual redundancy options are available for varying degrees of duplication
in the system, allowing for fully dual redundant configurations to give continued operation
in event of equipment failure.
Reports of switches, scheduled events and other information can be generated and exported to Excel or Pdf files.
In conjunction with partner companies, a complete integrated hardware and
software system with full support can be provided.
We have experience in controlling many different types of
routers so legacy equipment can usually be supported.
