IBC will see a new release of the TallyMan broadcast control system. TallyMan is designed for realtime, user-oriented control and dynamic data display. Key functionality allows the design of virtual control panels, usually implemented on touchscreen PCs.
The latest release allows engineers to define buttons to achieve multi-device, precisely time-aligned salvos of commands. The design platform now includes a new range of sliders, rotary encoders and X-Y controls, which can be applied to anything from positioning robotic cameras, to adjusting audio levels, or for colour correction.
A new addition to the TSL Products command and control range is FlashBoard, a new screen-based information distribution and display system. Integrating with TallyMan, third party control systems or capable of independent operation, FlashBoard recognises 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.
Chris Exelby, MD, TSL Products, said: “When we talk to customers around the world, it is clear that they want to be able to implement solutions which are carefully tailored to their specific needs, but which can be delivered quickly, cost-effectively and flexibly. Our unique independent position in the industry and our adoption of open standards means we are ideally placed to deliver the Control Systems layer that allows our customers the freedom to choose best fit, best of breed equipment.”
