PLAYMASTER

OVERVIEW

PlayMaster is a video and audio Broadcast and IPTV Automation Playout System designed to play High Definition and Standard Definition media files, streams and feeds powered by a dynamic play list and media server.

 

The play list controls live events (i.e. camera and A/V mixing console or satellite and Internet feeds), logo inserter's, AV routers (allowing you to insert content stored on tape), along with aspect ratio converters and Text or Graphic Overlays. Animated Flash overlays are supported!

 

A play-list may have a combination of NTSC and PAL formats , along with mixed file types and sources, can be used on any play-list, which is one of the reasons that makes PlayMaster Playout so effective and efficient.

 

Our Capture Software and Asset Management tools complete the PlayMaster Playout Suite to enable you to bring high quality Video and Audio streams to your clients, all without disrupting your on-air broadcast.

 

Events are based on a 24-hour clock.  PlayMaster can easily handle lists that play beyond '23:59' traversing the midnight barrier.  And a choice of the following start modes is available: manual, presetting the start time or by triggering the GPI input.
