IP connectivity made simple
Every broadcast engineer and content producer needs to connect equipment. Signals need to be routed and switched around your setting, whether that is a production facility, a playout centre, a regional broadcast station, or an OB truck. In the world of SDI there are lots of options to help you do this. But for IP environments connection and device management becomes a whole lot more complex, and the cost of getting it wrong is potentially very high.
Choosing a control system is probably the most important decision you can make when you’re designing an IP facility or test installation. It dictates what devices you can work with, and the type of workflows that will sit on top of that control system. So it’s vital that you can trust your vendor to deliver the performance, security and reliability you need with such a key component of your infrastructure. Here at Pebble we have 21 years’ experience in automation, from our beginnings controlling VTRs, cart machines and routers to our current suite of products which control networked devices. This experience, together with our highly skilled dedicated R&D team who have been immersed in broadcast control development within the industry for many years, combine to bring you Pebble’s new IP connection management solution.
Pebble Control is a self-contained, scalable, IP-native, connection management solution which is easy to configure, deploy and operate using web-based UIs. Designed to deliver immediate benefits to even the smallest IP facility, it leverages open standards to interface with NMOS-enabled devices from multiple vendors, and is easily reconfigurable for when your interconnections change, or when you add or remove devices. Excellent, secure device management is a key building block for your IP environment, and Pebble Control can get you there without the consultation and expense that a bespoke enterprise solution entails.
