Enterprise Control Systems



At a Glance

Open. Custom. Control.

DashBoard is a free and open platform from Ross Video for facility control and monitoring that enables users to quickly build unique, tailored CustomPanels that make complex operations simple.

DashBoard provides control and monitoring to hundreds of products from more than 80 partners within the openGear and DashBoard Connect ecosystem and of course most Ross Video products. Its ability to craft application-specific solutions across this breadth of products is what makes DashBoard so special.


The emmy-winning openGear platform is designed to work with DashBoard as the front-end UI for the more than 80 openGear partners using OGP (openGear Protocol).


DashBoard CustomPanels are used to create custom interfaces to control products from Ross Video and partner companies. CustomPanels are used by major broadcasters and large sports venues across the planet.

Approachable Control Experiences

DashBoard CustomPanels reduce the expertise needed to run a production

DashBoard CustomPanel interfaces are used by customers worldwide to create tailored interfaces for specific purposes, including:

  • Custom monitoring interfaces
  • Simplified control interfaces for productions

Core features within DashBoard include:

  • PanelBuilder is used to build custom user interfaces for triggering and control of Ross and other devices.
  • ogScript is the scripting language that DashBoard uses to interact with devices and make user interfaces dynamic
  • Visual Logic provides a simple way to build ogScript commands and conditional logic into your CustomPanels

Controlling access to your openGear environment

Access to DashBoard devices can be managed using Ross Platform Manager

Ross Platform Manager can be used to control user access to devices through DashBoard. Administrators define which devices users have access to and the level of permission that the user has over each device. By constructing these access levels using roles, managing access control for large openGear ecosystems becomes easy.

  • Integrates with Ross Platform Manager’s role-based access control functionality
  • Supports LDAP integration

Faster Communication with DashBoard Proxy Server

DashBoard proxy server speeds communication between OGP binary devices and remote users

A DashBoard proxy server enables users on remote DashBoard clients to connect to openGear frames through the proxy server instead of connecting to them directly. The proxy server can accelerate communications in the following situations:

  • When DashBoard users are far away from the OGP binary devices they are trying to control
  • For certain devices that only accept only a single connection
  • When only one IP address can be exposed between locations
