Pebble Launches A Freemium Version Of Pebble Control

Pebble Control Free is designed to “democratise” IP and hybrid broadcast environments, bringing IP connection management capabilities to a wider audience through Pebble’s new self-service portal.

Pebble, a leading automation, content management, and integrated channel specialist, is launching a freemium version of Pebble Control, its self-contained, scalable, and easy-to-configure IP connection management system. Pebble Control Free is available to download from the company’s new self-service portal, giving the broadcast community the ability to take their first steps into IP autonomously.

The freemium version is designed to support broadcasters and production facilities of any size as they manage their transition from traditional broadcast infrastructures to more flexible IP-based technologies. It offers many of the same capabilities as Pebble Control but on a more modest scale, allowing users to explore their journey into IP in a way that works for them.

It offers IP connection management at any scale without the need to deploy a bespoke enterprise solution. It leverages full support for the NMOS (Networked Media Open Specifications) suite of protocols - produced by the Advanced Media Workflow Association to facilitate networked media for professional applications – and operates on web-based UIs. Designed to deliver immediate benefits to even the smallest IP facility, it interfaces with NMOS-enabled devices from multiple vendors on the network and is easily reconfigurable for when interconnections change or when devices are added or removed, essentially providing plug and play capability for IP networks. This new version, Pebble Control Free, allows users to seamlessly leverage interoperability in an IP world. They can test the waters and explore how easy it really is to manage and connect IP devices using the resources available on Pebble’s new self-service portal.
