Rascular is exhibiting the latest version of its flagship product Helm, at IBC this year. Helm allows customers to pick best-of-breed equipment-branding devices, routers, servers, VTRs, multi-viewers and modular gear-from a wide range of manufacturers yet control it with a single, integrated and highly customisable control screen for a huge range of broadcast applications.
Helm now supports Miranda-now Grass Valley-Densite modular products, giving fast access to card functions. Alongside numerous back-end upgrades, Helm can also control Black Magic Videohubs, Grass Valley native protocol routers and Sierra Video’s Aspen router range.
Also on display is the latest version of RouteMaster, Rascular’s flexible PC-based router control system. Built on tried and tested software modules, RouteMaster can be used with a wide range of video and audio routers-past, present and future-from all the major manufacturers. It’s equally suitable for new router installations or extending the capabilities of existing systems.
It now includes support for hardware control panels from Blackmagic, Nevion and Sierra. Router support has also been increased to include Black Magic Videohub, Grass Valley native protocol and Sierra Video Aspen. RouteMaster can also combine multiple independent routers to form a single, multilayer router.
