IBC 2017: TSL Products to launch Tallyman control system
TSL Products’ TallyMan advanced broadcast control system is making its debut at IBC. With more than a thousand systems in use worldwide, TallyMan is is designed for real time, user-oriented control and dynamic data display, providing best fit control for best of breed systems. The core software continues to evolve, incorporating the advanced access capabilities and automated workflow functionality that its users demand.
A key part of the TallyMan functionality is the ability to design virtual control panels, usually implemented on touchscreen PCs. The latest release of tools allows engineers to create multi-take buttons, which achieve multi device, precisely time aligned salvos of commands. The design platform now includes a new range of sliders, rotary encoders and X-Y control, which can be applied to anything from positioning robotic cameras to adjusting audio levels to colour correction. Recent TallyMan installations have included full control of multiple remote studios, increasing production values while reducing costs and ensuring staff time is spent on productive, creative work.
A new addition to the TSL Products command and control range is FlashBoard, a new screen-based information distribution and display system. Integrating seamlessly with TallyMan, third party control systems or capable of independent operation, FlashBoard recognises the increasing need for critical workflow information to be delivered visually at the point of use. It drives multiple displays, each with a unique combination of data, clocks and timers, on-air and cue lights, and production details. Screens are designed quickly using the drag and drop functionality in the TallyMan virtual panel software for display in monitor walls or distributed wirelessly to tablets.
“When we talk to customers around the world, it is clear that they want to be able to implement solutions which are carefully tailored to their specific needs, but which can be delivered quickly, cost-effectively and flexibly,” Chris Exelby, MD at TSL Products commented. “Our unique independent position in the industry and our adoption of open standards means we are ideally placed to deliver the Control Systems layer that allows our customers the freedom to choose best fit, best of breed equipment.
The company will be showcasing its products on stand 10.B41.
