Designed to enable broadcasters and production facilities to create and manage secure operational workflows to configure and monitor IP devices within a broadcast environment, Pebble Control is a self-contained, scalable solution which is easy to configure, deploy and operate using web-based UIs.

Pebble Control delivers immediate benefits to even the smallest IP facility, leveraging open standards to interface with NMOS-enabled devices from multiple vendors, and it’s easily reconfigurable for when interconnections change, or when devices are added or removed. Excellent, secure device management is a key building block for any broadcast environment, and Pebble Control is designed to make IP as simple as SDI.

While that has worked well for us, nothing beats meeting new and existing customers face to face and attending Broadcast Asia provides a brilliant opportunity to reconnect with customers and industry peers alike.

“We have a highly valued customer base in the region and we’re excited to showcase our newest developments to the market. Having a physical presence at the show underlines our commitment to delivering excellent solutions to this market and we look forward to sharing more on this at Broadcast Asia.”
