Automation Software for Producers and Broadcasters

" It's like having a production team! "


Possible Use Cases:

24-7 TV and Radio Stations / Webcasting
TV Production
Conferences
Digital Signage
Venue Management

Features:

  • Built to work with vMix Live production software.

  • Advanced Scheduler with Automated event repeating options.

  • Automatic Scheduling and Episode Management.

  • Automatic Programme Guide and Title.

  • Automatically select videos to fill a time, or time remaining until the next scheduled item.

  • Control Scripting System, enabling scripted control of vMix and Automation - like shortcuts on steroids.

  • Additional 'Events' (triggers) - like On DataChange, vMix.FTB etc.

  • Title Management - Use a spreadsheet to keep details of your show and lower thirds. A lower third is just 1 button press away.

  • Sports Title features - includes an easy way to pop up substitutions - just select which player is going off and the replacement and then press the substitutions button - the substitution title appears.

  • Automatic Credit Roll from Title Management Data.

  • Automatic Camera Switching based on Audio Sources.

  • Control DMX lighting and other devices in Symphony with your vMix Production.

  • Fault Tolerance - Automatic detection and handling.

  • Integration with Data providers - eg. for Weather Info.

  • Support for X-Keys Control Surfaces (can be shared with vMix).

  • Monitor folders for files and take some action - eg make an MP3 version of your recording, add them to a vMix list input, etc.

  • Various apps allow monitoring of the timer for the next event - eg. countdown to commercials.

  • Apps are all network enabled, allowing the apps to run on other machines on the network, reducing the risk of running out of screen realestate.

Pro and TV-Station editions come with an ever growing number of "Turn-Key" scripts which enable an operator to quickly access the functionality of the system, without needing to know how to write scripts. For example, suppose you want to run a Music-TV station and pop up the name of the currently playing track ... no problem, just put it in the schedule, tell it where the music videos are located and which inputs to use in vMix, and you're good to go.

TV-Station edition can automatically choose the next episode of a show to play from a directory of files, manage insertion of commercials with Top, Mid and Tail priorities and can automatically choose filler content to play out if the episode runs slightly short of the next programme.

TV-Station also logs everything it plays. Using the reporting tool, it is possible to generate reports showing how many times a commercial was aired, the time, date and which scheduled programme was playing at the time. This info can be directly copied on to your sponsors invoice. Data is also available for plotting graphs through a spreadsheet.

Collaboration is made possible through Google Sheets, enabling a distributed production team to control most aspects of their TV Station or production from anywhere the Google Sheets can be accessed.

... and much more!

Looks great, with a dmtf tone trigger, nothing more needed.
