Softron Media Services announces support for Blackmagic Design's Videohub in OnTheAir Node, OnTheAir Live and OnTheAir Manage(April 07, 2011)
When the Videohub is connected to a Mac on the network via a USB port, the Videohub becomes available through Bonjour. The Softron Videohub plug-in for OnTheAir Node will then automatically see it and make it available. Users will be able to choose which output each node can control, rename them and give it a default value Softron's OnTheAir Live and OnTheAir Manager can subsequently communicate with the selected named outputs and thus avoid confusion. Only those outputs added to the named list in the Preferences will be seen by the user with the default value set.
?We feel that our Videohub Plug-in for our client server applications is a major innovation, said Pierre Chevalier, Softron's Technical Director for Softron Media Services. ?It provides incredible flexibility while keeping things easy for the users of our applications and the Blackmagic Design Videohubs. What's more, it is provided at no charge. This is just one more example of how Softron provides added value to our applications.
In addition to being controllable by OnTheAir Live, OnTheAir Node can be controlled through Telnet, an open, standards-based protocol used in a lot of broadcasting equipment. Softron Media Services has also announced that it will soon ship OnTheAir Manager, a scheduling application that will allow users to prepare scheduled programming for output from any of the nodes installed on the network.
