Abit Automation Workstation Now Available

Playout automation specialist, Abit, has announced that its next generation of automation workstation providing enhanced operational features including scalable time lines is now available to run on the Linux operating system and will be demonstrated at IBC on booth 8.128.
The workstation has been designed to allow the user to configure both the control functions and display windows to meet their existing or new workflow from a physical workstation level and on predefined user privileges. The workstation compliments the systems strategy to merge the broadcast elements and file structures for easier operation and to simplify familiarisation of the user interface from both a broadcast and IT perspective.
"Technically we are impressed with the underlying design philosophy and reliability of Linux and with the uptake in use by IT departments, so porting the software was an easy decision to take," said Richard Thomas, software development director, Abit. "The operational features included in the latest software release includes timeline operation, intuitive drag & drop functionality and iconised material categorisation while maintaining the wide range of existing broadcast orientated features such as Time Shift Functionality and Adaptive DVE control."
