Pebble Beach Adds IP Functionality And SmartPanel Application

News Image
Pebble Beach Systems, a leading supplier of automation, channel in a box and integrated channel technology, will be demonstrating important new user enhancements at IBC this year on stand 8.B58.
The company will be showing an MPEG2 transport stream delivered over IP (TSoIP) on both the Dolphin integrated channel device and the award-winning Stingray channel in a box solution, adding full resolution IP functionality to the range, and complementing the IP monitoring output capability which was first demonstrated at NAB earlier this year.
New for Marina automation is the SmartPanel.  This user-configurable feature gives customers the ability to design their own control panels within the Marina user-interface, giving the operator, for example, a custom-designed panel to take manual control of both Marina and external devices, or perhaps to have a panel dedicated for controlling live graphics. In addition to the tangible operational advantage of a single operator having this level of device control within the automation client, the Smart Panel brings system management benefits by improving reporting and traceability, as commands made via the SmartPanel are incorporated into Marina’s AsRun log.
Bu the end of 2013, Marina automation will be controlling over 300 channels worldwide. Managing Director Peter Hajittofi confirms: "Pebble Beach Systems focuses on delivering automation and channel delivery solutions which enable customers to exploit legacy and best of breed technologies whilst offering a migration path to new technologies such as IP delivery. With the introduction of new features such as the SmartPanel for Marina we continue to deliver innovative and adaptable tools which enable more efficient operations, and we have further announcements planned for IBC regarding significant developments in graphics functionality for the Stingray and Dolphin."
