sonoVTS unveils new remote control app for HDQLINE monitors
The control app is a graphics-orientated, intuitive and user-friendly tool that controls all parameters on individual monitors as well as pre-defined groups of monitors in a larger system or OB van. Complex monitor walls can easily be created by dragging and dropping application icons into a layout to provide a perfect overview of the settings of each monitor.
However, according to sonoVTS International Sales Manager Branko Pezelj, “The problem with many monitor control systems is that you often can’t physically reach them. Changing parameters on a monitor wall in an OB van, for example, can require a lot of tedious ups and downs. This issue is exacerbated in an IP-based remote production environment. In short, when you go remote, control needs to go remote with you, and we’ve now provided that capability with this control app.”
The new application works from any desktop, laptop, or popular smart phone via an easy-to-use web-based GUI that provides the ability to remotely set and control individual or groups of displays, a considerable cost and time-saver.
sonoVTS HDQLINE broadcast display sales are booming
Today sonoVTS, announced the sale of nearly 200 of its HDQLINE multi-standard UHD broadcast displays. The company’s latest generation of IP-enabled HDQLINE multi-standard broadcast displays, the QDP 240-A and QDP 320-A, are driven by a powerful, high-precision video processing engine that has made it the display of choice for customers worldwide.
Nilesat, the major satellite broadcast channel operator in Egypt, has taken delivery of more than 50 HDQLINE displays that will form a “massive” videowall at the heart of its new master control room, also designed and built by sonoVTS.
Similar-size orders for HDQLINE are being delivered to DNK in Russia, WTS in Leeds, and NDR in Hamburg, to name a few.
According to sonoVTS Head of Business Development Manager Toby Kronenwett, “The new processors in our HDQLINE displays deliver four times the power of previous models, which were already enormously powerful. However, in a 4K/UHD world, you need all the power you can get, and you can get it now with HDQLINE.”
HDQLINE is based on a proprietary, highly customised, future-proof video and audio engine coupled with new software developed by sonoVTS that take advantage of state-of-the-art silicon to drive with the world’s most precise LCD imaging technology.
Kronenwett adds, “In addition to being powerful, HDQLINE displays are reliable, easy to set up and operate, which makes them ideal for mission-critical applications.”
The new control application, HDQLINE displays and more can be found on Stand 8.B44 at IBC 2017.
