Pebble has updated the configurations on its Pebble Remote tool to enable it to be used remotely.
The tool, which has been rebranded from its previous name of Lighthouse, features fully configurable web-based dashboards, providing an overview of any upcoming issues across the entire system.
According to the company, Pebble Remote is ideally suited to business continuity applications, with a single operator able to oversee automatic playlist synchronisation between geographically separate systems. Deployments deliver robust security featuring full HTTPS support with TLS encryption, protection against brute force password and username attacks as well as secure password hashing.
“With remote access a priority in new project planning and for expansions to existing systems, Pebble Remote meets a key need,” said Mat Shell, head of sales at Pebble. “In recent months our user base has relied on Pebble Remote, to provide continuity of operation and to enable flexible working scenarios over a series of lockdowns and at times reduced physical access to their playout facilities.
“Over that period the benefits of secure remote management and control have been demonstrated time and again. So we’re delighted to be able to offer exceptional functionality in the new standard configuration of Pebble Remote. It is both secure and accessible anywhere at any time, is easy to use, and will drive operational efficiencies by consolidating control across multiple locations while providing mission-critical control of the playlist, including viewing and editing, beyond the normal boundaries of the playout facility.”
