Rascular adds Ross Video openGear compatibility to Helm

Ross Video has integrated its openGear control protocol with Helm, Rascular’s user-customisable PC-based soft panel control and monitoring system. By integrating with openGear, Helm has the potential to control products from all 29 openGear partners including Ross Video, Cobalt Digital and BlackMagic Design. Helm allows customers to pick systems from a range of different manufactures and allows users to control channels, or pods of channels, from a single screen using bespoke, pre-defined buttons for complex workflows. Roddy Pratt, technical director with Rascular, said: “Helm dynamically locates all openGear devices and detects their capabilities, as it does with RollCall. This means that any new or updated products can be used without updating the Helm software. By integrating with openGear and becoming a Ross Video partner we’re opening up a whole new range of control possibilities to broadcasters and playout providers.”
