ToolsOnAir Showcasing at NAB 2023
- 13 April, 2023
AUT: At NAB 2023, ToolsOnAir will showcase the latest versions of its ingest and playout solutions for macOS and Linux, which will offer more enhanced features and capabilities to increase scalability and automation in the daily production environment.
Ingest solutions: new REST API and VDCP protocol support
just:in linux v.5.5 is a versatile enterprise-grade client-server ingest solution designed to provide high-density HD / UHD multichannel recordings of SDI, HDMI, NDI® and SRT sources to either the internal RAID or qualified broadcast storage systems and is used by broadcasters worldwide to optimise their production workflows. The new REST API as well as additional VDCP support, available at first for just:in linux v.5.5, will be unveiled and is expected to deliver broadcasters even more flexibility, third-party integration comfort and remote control with and from other systems and applications using industry-standard protocols.
Playout solutions: enhanced failover capabilities with new Rules workflows
Since their first inception, ToolsOnAir playout solutions for the macOS platform have been designed to provide the ability to control and trigger events as an essential part of the feature set. Starting with version 4.0 of our playout solutions, the Event capabilities were further expanded by adding support for HTTP/AppleScript and the ability to insert frame accurate SCTE-104 triggers into the outgoing SDI signal.
The new version 4.2 will introduce a new method to execute such events called “Rules”.
Rules allow an unlimited number of events to be executed based on time (per day, hour, minute or second) so that there is no need to schedule repeating events in the timeline anymore. A specific use of the Rules mechanism is Automated Failover Control, which monitors the playout engine for health issues and executes frame accurate events such as switching to a redundant engine, a router port or sending an email notification, to mitigate the impacts in case of an on-air engine fail or the necessity to perform channel maintenance tasks.
