Central Control And Magewell Announces Production Integration

News Image
Magewell and Central Control (CC) announced that the newest version of the CC's show control application now offers integrated support for two of Magewell's highly-acclaimed production and IP workflow solutions.

Central Control 4 includes new modules for controlling Magewell's Director Mini all-in-one production and streaming system and Pro Convertmulti-protocol streaming and video-over-IP decoders.

The new integration will be featured in Director Mini demonstrations at the Magewell booth (C6816) at the upcoming 2024 NAB Show, April 14-17 in Las Vegas. Central Control will also appear at the NAB Show in the X-Keys booth (SL8118).

Central Control 4 is a live show control and automation application that bridges a wide variety of production devices -- including video mixers, graphics systems, lighting consoles, PTZ cameras, media servers and more -- with over 50 control surfaces and protocols such as X-Keys, Elgato Stream Deck and MIDI controllers.

The new Director Mini module for Central Control 4 provides control of scene switching, graphics triggering and audio (including VU meters and "scribble strips" when using a Behringer X-Touch control surface). Meanwhile, the new module for Pro Convert decoders allows easy selection of source video streams.

Magewell's Director Mini is a complete, portable production and streaming system that combines multi-input switching, graphics, streaming, recording and monitoring in one compact device. Director Mini lets users easily produce engaging multi-camera content through an intuitive touchscreen interface and companion mobile app.

Pro Convert decoders transform live, IP media streams into high-quality HDMI or SDI outputs for connection to monitors, projectors and production gear. The devices decode H.264 or H.265 compressed video in many streaming protocols -- including SRT, RTMP, RTSP, HLS and more -- as well as High-Bandwidth NDI®, NDI® HX2 and NDI® HX3.

"We are thrilled that Central Control has added support for Director Mini and Pro Convert decoders," said Nick Ma, CEO and CTO of Magewell. "Central Control 4 vastly expands the ways that our solutions can be controlled and automated by third-party tools even if they don't directly integrate with our offerings."

"By allowing essentially any controller to control practically anything, Central Control 4 is especially valuable for productions that use a diverse array of equipment," said Joe de Max, Director at Central Control. "We received many customer requests to add support for Magewell solutions, and we're excited to make Director Mini and Pro Convert decoders part of the Central Control ecosystem."
