Rascular Expands Manual Control Integration at IBC 2015

Rascular, supplier of PC-based multi-device master control systems, has announced it has completed significant new third-party integrations, including with Blackmagic and Barnfind Technologies. This brings the company’s renowned use-defined, on-air control technologies to an expanded user base.

Rascular has integrated its RouteMaster technology with Blackmagic’s cost-effective hardware router control panels (Blackmagic Smart Control), allowing users of the panels to control not only Blackmagic routers but any router that RouteMaster can control, including Barnfind. Barnfind manufactures a signal neutral platform that offers many functions and supports numerous different signal formats in one frame.

RouteMaster sits between the hardware panels and the router(s). This provides tremendous flexibility for users who can chose the same, familiar hardware interface to operate routers from multiple manufacturers. And because RouteMaster supports a wide range of protocols, users can upgrade or replace routers without changing either the control system or the hardware panels.

RouteMaster is used to control an existing router installation from any web browser via computer, tablet and even mobile phone using Rascular’s web panels. RouteMaster’s support for web-based control panels, built using standards-compliant HTML5 technologies, allows custom control panels to be used on any system, providing unrivalled levels of control flexibility for router installations.

In addition, the Helm technology that provides manual control of playout systems in a master control environment support has also been expanded. It now includes: Utah Scientific routers; enhanced Harmonic Spectrum media server and Spectrum ChannelPort support; RouteMaster native support; enhanced Imagestore 750 integration and; Kramer Router support.
