Axon To Showcase Products At SET 2015

News Image
Axon Digital Design has announced it will return to SET, 25-27 August at Expo Center Norte in São Paulo on the stands of its channel partners, LineUp and Libor.

The company will highlight the success of Cerebrum, its broadcast control and monitoring software and showcase SMART DVB (transport stream monitoring) and SynMC (Synapse based master control products).

Cerebrum Controls Summer of Sport
Axon will showcase Cerebrum, its customisable control and monitoring system, a control solution for mobile production, news and studio live production, master control and remote production. Cerebrum's advanced functionality and range of features simplifies multi device monitoring and control onto one easy-to-use interface. It supports a range of devices from different manufacturers – including routers, production switchers, servers, receiver decoders, multi-viewers and waveform monitors – using either SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) or third party protocols.

Since its launch last year, organisations such as MBC, VRT, YLE, Sichuan TV and NHK are using Cerebrum to control their operations. Recent deployments include Indonesia's 24-hour news channel Metro TV and News UK, where the system has been installed in its new state-of-the-art broadcast facilities in London.

Cerebrum is also proving to be a success in mobile production, supporting a number of this summer's major sporting events including The Open golf, The US Open tennis at Flushing Meadows and Timeline's 4K production of BT Sports UEFA Champions League coverage. Providing smoother control over elements such as tally, UMD and cameras and enabling tasks that previously took hours to complete to now be achieved in minutes, Cerebrum is being adopted as the nerve centre for many OB productions.

Axon will also demonstrate SMART DVB, its platform for live MPEG-2 and DVB transport stream reporting. Launched earlier this year, SMART DVB is a complete suite of tools to monitor, report and analyse live MPEG-2 and DVB transport streams. Powerful and versatile, the SMART DVB suite enables owners and operators to ensure health, conformity and quality across the digital distribution chain and to drive performance at the highest level.

Also on show at SET is the SynMC modular master control engine, part of Axon's Synapse signal processing product line. SynMC allows users to take complete control of automation and transmission hardware and software panels. SynMC units have been recently installed at Mexico's Universidad Autonoma de Durango and South African broadcaster
