Control Systems Dashboard Product Integration

Product Integration

DashBoard integrates across the majority of the Ross Video range of products. This brings the benefits of a uniform design language for the user interface that exploits common metaphors for control, monitoring and interaction across the product range:

  • Faster learning – because control and monitoring applications look similar, learning how to operate the next product is easier than the previous one.
  • Control seats are inexpensive because custom control hardware can be eliminated. With or without a touchscreen, facility control is achieved using commodity computer hardware and free software. Redundancy is simply a matter of deploying a 2nd or 3rd host computer. You even get to choose between Windows, Apple OS X, or Linux.
  • It doesn’t end with Ross. With over 50 partners supplying over 100 products between them, DashBoard offers the potential to be a complete facility control and monitoring solution. Visit openGear.tv for more information…

openGear Signal Processing

Perfect for monitoring status with the ability to roll-up to a facility-wide or even global level, and also troubleshoot-down to an individual input our output when problems arise.

Comprehensive control of every setting with device specific panels, or show just the controls that matter in a custom panel. Use both side-by-side simultaneously for different operators with different needs.

Safe device settings to a file so they can be easily restored, or used offline to build custom panels.

Upgrade devices in batches to ensure consistent performance across your facility and save time. More info…

MC1 Master Control System

When as much production power as the MC1 is packed into a package as compact as an openGear 3.0 frame, the only downside is the complexity of the standard device GUI. There are over 300 controls and all of them need to be presented!

A great way to manage this complexity is to create simple CustomPanels that let the operator concentrate on the operation, while hiding all the configuration items. More info…

XPression Graphics System

DashBoard and XPression together provide the potential to create a workspace that keeps the operator entirely within the domain they know and understand. Where it’s enough to know what to do, rather than how to do it.

In a Worship context, the operator just needs to know book, chapter and verse, and the correct scripture appears as a graphic.

In a sports context, the operator just scores the game and all the relevant game information appears as attractive 3D graphics. More info…

Robotic Camera Systems

DashBoard provides the potential for seamless integration of robotic cameras within a custom production where the sophistication of the content is superseded only by the simplicity of operation.

The Legislative Control System is a great example of a solution that minimizes, learning curves, training and maintenance expense while putting network quality television to air. More Info…

NK Routing Systems

DashBoard offers flexible control, configuration and monitoring over the entire NK router line and its control components. Using the NK-IPS Network Bridge, multiple DashBoard clients can run simultaneously to configure and monitor the NK router line, including signal status on each I/O port across multiple routers.

BlackStorm Video Servers

BlackStorm’s plug-ins for managing media, playlists and controlling each channel independently are native to DashBoard where they can be used as-is or combined with controls for other devices to create a versatile playout and signal management facility. More info…

Carbonite Production Switchers

Simplify productions to the basics so that your volunteer operators can concentrate on the production and not learning how to operate a production switcher. More info…

Carbonite ViewControl

Incorporate live video into the GUI using the unique keying ability of Carbonite’s multiviewer together with touchscreen technology that lets you interact with video in the most intuitive way ever. More info…

Acuity Production Switchers

Acuity Production Switchers have a DashBoard panel that’s perfect for back bench or disaster recovery applications. More info…

Nielsen Encoders

With some installations using tens or even more channels of Neilsen encoding, DashBoard provides a convenient way to quickly select the channel you want to view and control. More info…
