DNF's NAB2018 Line-up Streamlines the Path to Virtual and Cloud-based IP Control
“The technologies that drive content creation and distribution are advancing at warp speed,” acknowledges Dan Fogel, chief technical officer of DNF. “But there’s one constant: gear must be controlled. Over the years, we’ve developed a comprehensive eco-system of scalable tools and control solutions capable of meeting today’s challenges, as well as those racing toward us, including Virtualization, IP Infrastructure, and the ever-present Cloud.”
Cloud Content Control for Radio & TV
With a time-tested GTP-32 Control Processor at its core, DNF collaborated with AWS Elemental to offer a Live Cloud Playout system. The facility’s play-to-air automation controls the GTP-32 emulating a video server channel; content is housed remotely on Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) and accessed via Elemental’s Live Cloud. A virtual mini-GTP updates automation whenever clips are added or removed.
GTP-V1 for Radio & TV
A virtual, software-only implementation of the workhorse GTP-32 Processor, the GTP-V1 offers full IP control over video and KVM routers, production switchers, multi-viewers, content servers, graphics, tally systems, and more, whether on-site, across town or the continent.
SNMP Trap Monitoring & Processing for Radio & TV
DNF’s blockbuster IP Control Buddy series, as well as its Universal Pushbutton (USP3) panels, now include SNMP functionality to manage hardware alerts and facilitate troubleshooting. Both product families “programmer-free” user interfaces make easy work of configuring specific responses to various situations via an Ethernet command, GPI trigger, email warning, or other facility notification scheme.
AIB-2 for Radio & TV
The Anywhere Interface Box family has grown more powerful with the new AIB-2 version featuring a 100Base-T Ethernet port and Web-based Virtual pushbutton capabilities.
