VSM Intercom Control at MCI Hamburg Open
One of the most important features of the Virtual Studio Manager is its non-proprietary approach. With this latest intercom control solution, the overall control system once again demonstrates this advantage. The intercom systems of the majority of established manufacturers can communicate with the VSM and, therefore, can be controlled via the VSM panel application vsmPanel. The new software module Mx33 enables the tie-lines to be assigned dynamically in such a way as to allow codecs, for example, to be connected dynamically to defined switches on an intercom system. A further software module Mx34 permits functions such as talk and listen to be assigned to single buttons on the intercom system.
This new control solution will be presented on 20 January 2011 at MCI Hamburg Open. Over an area of 1800 square metres in two studios, more than 60 companies and manufacturers of broadcast equipment will be displaying their latest products, highlights and trends. The event will also include workshops and lectures about subjects such as networked productions, IPTV and 3D technology. L-S-B will also be giving a presentation to exhibition visitors covering the VSM control system and entitled “The Networked OB Van”. This will highlight different aspects of network structures in the OB van area, especially with regard to the IP-based VSM control system.
The doors of studios A2 and A3 will be open to the professional audience from 10.00 to 17.00. Everyone working in TV and radio stations, production and postproduction is welcome to attend the event free of charge.
