Remote monitoring and control tool reconfigured to incorporate enhanced feature set in the light of increased demand for remote access.
Pebble has announced new configurations and a new brand for its powerful Pebble Remote tool, the remote management, monitoring and control tool for Pebble Automation and Integrated Channel deployments.
It is more important than ever for broadcasters and service providers to have secure, remote access to their playout environment, even more so when systems can comprise multiple channels across several playout sites and in cloud deployments. The Pebble Remote tool, formerly known as Lighthouse, enables users to securely monitor, manage and control their channels from inside or outside the normal transmission environment. Featuring fully configurable web-based dashboards, it can provide a mission-critical overview of any upcoming issues across the entire system, allowing users to react quickly and take action with ease and agility.
Pebble Remote is ideally suited to business continuity applications, with a single operator able to oversee automatic playlist synchronisation between geographically separate systems. Deployments deliver robust security featuring full HTTPS support with TLS encryption, protection against brute force password and username attacks as well as secure password hashing.
“With remote access a priority in new project planning and for expansions to existing systems, Pebble Remote meets a key need,” comments Mat Shell, Head of Sales at Pebble. “In recent months our user base has relied on Pebble Remote, to provide continuity of operation and to enable flexible working scenarios over a series of lockdowns and at times reduced physical access to their playout facilities. Over that period the benefits of secure remote management and control have been demonstrated time and again. So we’re delighted to be able to offer exceptional functionality in the new standard configuration of Pebble Remote. It is both secure and accessible anywhere at any time, is easy to use, and will drive operational efficiencies by consolidating control across multiple locations while providing mission-critical control of the playlist, including viewing and editing, beyond the normal boundaries of the playout facility."
