Automation Lite

World class automation at an entry level price

Pebble’s robust and resilient Automation Lite solutions are optimised to control systems of up to 6 channels, drawing on the strengths of our enterprise level Automation platform to give you best of breed functionality at an entry level price.

Your solution will be designed and configured to suit your specific workflows and individual channel requirements, giving reliable and efficient control of the technology your operations need, whether that’s legacy best-of breed devices, integrated channel solutions, or a mix of both.

Compatible with both baseband and IP devices, and with a large selection of proven device drivers, systems are scalable from 1 to 6 channels and available with configurable redundancy options and an unlimited number of clients.


Advanced Control Functionality

Thanks to the highly featured and configurable control layer, a single client is able to control up to 6 channels.

Your operators have clear visibility of each channel’s timeline and operations, and a direct desktop view of playout and ingest monitoring. And you can set custom user privileges and desktop layouts to minimise the possibility of operator error and optimise the user experience for your team.

Smart Playlist and Validation Technology

Pebble’s Automation Lite solutions are designed to enable you to benefit from enterprise level Automation playlist intelligence and validation functionality.

Comprehensive tools for the control of highly reactive channels – with frequent late scheduling changes and multiple event types, multiple classifications, different start and end types, and over-running or under-running events – mean that all of your channel variants and playout scenarios are catered for. And every event is automatically and continuously checked for availability and timing issues to safeguard your smooth playout.

Scalable as your business grows

We understand that a broadcaster’s requirements change. If your channel architecture expands to encompass control of more third-party devices, or if you need to add extra channels, we can offer an upgrade path to our full enterprise level Automation solution.

As both systems use the same user interface there is no need to retrain your operators or to change your methods of working.

  • Enterprise class control for systems of up to 6 channels, with an unlimited number of clients
  • Third Party Device Control of up to 30+ devices, via serial, IP or GPI interfaces
