Rascular to Showcase New SDI and NDI Router Control at IBC 2018

Rascular, a software design company will showcase the latest in control systems for SDI and IP video workflows and facilities for IBC 2018.

For the first time at IBC, Rascular will be showing its recently updated, comprehensive range of router control technologies across SDI and NDI domains.

Rascular software provides automated control applications for third-party, professional video technologies and works across the broadcast, streaming and A/V sectors. The company's bespoke or off-the-shelf applications work across SDI and IP technologies, providing template-based or user-defined panels that allow access to any and all functionality required, giving users the precision control they need, even in extremis.

Recognising its importance to the future of compressed video transport, Rascular has embraced NewTek’s increasingly popular NDI video-over-IP protocol with the recent launch of RouteMaster-Lite. This is a standalone, PC-based, single licence application, based on Rascular’s powerful RouteMaster technology and is designed to provide comprehensive router control for NDI sources up to maximum 20x20 router size.

RouteMaster-Lite virtualises the NDI source and destination devices (the IP addresses) in the system making them sources and destinations on a virtual NDI router; it then allows full router source/destination control via a web panel that will be familiar to operators; and it also provides control via BlackMagic hardware router control panels.

RouteMaster integrates the company's router control and emulation technology to form a powerful yet flexible router control system. Built on tried and tested software modules, RouteMaster can be used with a wide range of broadcast video and audio routers - past, present and future, SDI and SDI/IP hybrid - from the major router manufacturers. It also provides control of NDI sources.

ClockWork is a simple-to-use, standalone PC-based application that provides both automated time-of-day and full manual video and audio router control. In the SDI domain, it works with video and audio routers from all leading manufacturers. The combination of ClockWork and RouteMaster or RouteMaster-Lite also provides simple time-of-day automated routing of NDI streams.

Rascular will also be showing the latest version of its WebCentre application. This handles the allocation of device-independent web panels and user roles, allowing levels of user access and control to be administered across applications. It also benefits from new levels of security.
