Rascular, software designers of PC-based video playout control and media management systems across SDI and IP, is showing its latest control and monitoring technologies at IBC 2017. These reportedly provide flexible and cost-effective control of third-party devices across the playout chain, including streaming encoders.

Second screen activity is significantly increasing and alongside that theres a growing requirement for control and monitoring technologies that provide the operational flexibility and precision that live environments require.
