CastAway is a new Helm application
Rascular has continued to expand its integration of NewTek’s NDI protocol, announcing the development of CastAway, and integration of Helm with YouTube and Facebook Live.
CastAway is a new Helm application, which provides NDI master control switching in software. This allows users to find and view incoming sources, presented in a multiviewer. In addition, Castaway also includes vision mixing/presentation switching capabilities to handle transitions and logo insertion. Rascular’s standalone NDI routing application RouteMaster-Lite also benefits from these new multiviewer capabilities.
Helm has been upgraded, including the ability to now control Blackmagic Design’s HyperDeck broadcast decks. Via Helm, users can now also drag and drop single transport control groups onto a user panel to provide easier server control. Helm is integrated with Contour’s ShuttlePro USB jog/shuttle wheel, a tactile controller that works alongside keyboard and mouse, now able to be used for server transport control in Helm. PESA router control is also available with Helm.
On show for the first time at IBC 2019, Rascular is highlighting its ability to provide direct control of YouTube live streaming in addition to its ability to allow easy streaming to Facebook Live, using flagship control technology Helm. This can be achieved via Helm on a PC or via associated, device-independent web panels.
Also on show; WebCentre is a device-independent application that provides browser-based user role creation and management, control panel configuration and access to those panels for device control. It’s on-premise server-based, with any modern browser on any device – tablet, PC, smartphone – able to access user-defined control panels according to the user management settings. Using HTTPS, it’s claimed fully secure.
RouteMaster-Lite is a standalone, PC-based, single licence application, based on Rascular’s RouteMaster technology and is designed to provide comprehensive router control for NDI sources up to maximum 20x20 router size.
