TSL Products Support IP Transition

TSL Products has updated a number of its control, audio monitoring and power management solutions to simplify SDI/IP workflows and streamline operations supporting customers making the transition to IP. The latest versions include full compliance with the recently approved SMPTE 2110 suite of standards.

TSL Products’ PAM-IP audio monitoring devices, which feature twin Ethernet ports, can also now be used either in Dante or AES-67 audio networking modes, making them ideal for use across the SDI to IP infrastructure transition, as installations move towards a unified SMPTE solution.

At the recent IBC Show, TSL Products showed a new release of its TallyMan advanced broadcast control system. With more than 1,000 systems in use worldwide, TallyMan is a real time, user-oriented control and dynamic data display. A key part of the TallyMan user interface is the ability to design virtual control panels, usually implemented on touchscreen PCs. The latest release of tools allows engineers to create multi-take buttons, which achieve multi-device, precisely time-aligned salvos of commands. The design platform now includes a new range of sliders, rotary encoders and X-Y control, which can be applied to anything from positioning robotic cameras to adjusting audio levels to color correction. Recent TallyMan installations have included full control of multiple remote studios, increasing production values while reducing costs and ensuring staff time is spent on productive, creative work.

A new addition to the TSL Products command and control range is FlashBoard, a new screen-based information distribution and display system. Integrating seamlessly with TallyMan, third party control systems or capable of independent operation, FlashBoard recognizes the increasing need for critical workflow information to be delivered visually at the point of use. It drives multiple displays, each with a unique combination of data, clocks and timers, on-air and cue lights, and production details. Screens are designed quickly using the drag and drop functionality in the TallyMan virtual panel software for display in monitor walls or distributed wirelessly to tablets.

System monitoring across a complete infrastructure was also highlighted at IBC with the TSL Products’ InSite platform, which monitors and manages status, control and alarm parameters over SNMP or Modbus. Concentrated status reports can be presented as web dashboards, with alarms sent as email or SMS. All information is logged to maintain an audit trail and for trending analysis.
