TallyMan Control System Overview
From signal routing, to remote device control, by grouping multi-level actions in to a single, user-configurable interface, you can do things that will make your production much more efficient. By providing just the controls needed, from simple interfaces for specific tasks, to unleashing the full power of a system built on a logic-based and open control layer, customers are able to maintain complete ownership of their systems.
- Powerful Control Engine - Take the efficiency found in automated systems and multiply it to dramatically reduce production costs and support facility wide management.
- Third Party Integration Independent and protocol agnostic integration that provides the flexibility needed to choose the breed with confidence, to integrate with new or existing third-party systems.
- Intuitive Control Interfaces Fully customisable interfaces to enhance and streamline operational workflows and bring flexibility to facilities worldwide.
- User Configurable - hide underlying system complexities so that operators can remain focused on making great content.
- Share technology between multiple locations through the unified control layer.
- Reduce staffing levels and minimise reworking through errors by putting the appropriate amount of control under the hands of a single operator.
- Let production values increase while limiting the need for staff to be retrained and to devote time to complex operations.
- Minimise the number of operational control panels needed by managing the functionality across a controlled system via unified interfaces.
The TM Virtual Panel is an incredibly powerful addition to the TallyMan control system. The fully customisable user interface brings signal flow management and monitoring and device management to users in an intuitive control surface, enhancing operational workflow to bring flexibility to outside broadcast and transmission facilities throughout the world.
- Fully customisable to the end users requirement
- Custom interaction with key functions of broadcast equipment
- Reduced learning curve and the risk of accidental errors when using the full manufacturer provided interfaces
- Compatible with every TallyMan installation, new and existing
- Signal flow management – Control of Video and Audio routers, including internal routers of audio consoles and Vision Switchers
- Signal flow management – Control of Video and Audio routers, including internal routers of audio consoles and Vision Switchers.
- Procedure automation – Simplify multi step procedures across multiple devices into a single button press or without any human interaction with live feedback on the virtual panel
- Virtual patching – remove the time consuming patching in dynamic installs such as Outside broadcast vehicles, TallyMan contains a fully fledged GPI router with presets
- Custom IP and Serial interfaces – to allow interaction with in-house systems and devices without additional development
Simply and efficiently configure broadcast trucks, whilst sharing and managing resources between your systems to save time, space and money.
- Camera assign – Assign camera names to CCUs effortlessly
- Joystick multiplexing – Use fewer RCPs to control multiple CCUs and assign cameras to RCPs on the fly
- Tally management – Complete scalable tally solution across multiple OB trucks
- VTR Control - manage VTRs with single or ganged control, from basic transport control to cue points, slow-motion control and two-machine cuts editing
- Facility Expansion - Maximise up-time and manage variable demand by simply docking trucks to larger broadcast facilities seamlessly as needed. Delegate control and information while minimising setup time
- Video/audio routing – Routing control over video and audio routers. Single cross point, associated sources, and salvos
- InterTruckability - Quickly and simply interact to share all device information, managing names, control and tally across systems. Signal patching is reduced as tielines become dynamic, naming problems are eliminated and logic patching is performed virtually
REMOTE AND LIVE PRODUCTION
Remotely controlled devices and systems across multiple locations will save on cost and keep staff working efficiently.
- tudio Preset Management (Save/Recall) – Save and recall complete studio configurations including camera `positions/parameters, lighting scenes, routing tables and more
- Studio Delegation – Assign studios to PCRs with associated routing, tally and control following assignment
- Video Routing (confidence monitoring, branding) – Routing and naming control, single cross-point, associated sources, and salvos for studio presets
- Tally Management - Complete scalable tally solution across multiple routers, switchers, cameras and multiviewers
- Audio Control (Mic gain, IFB, routing) – Control over audio routing and channel controls for remote control, studio preset set/recall and back-up control
- PTZ Camera Control – Complete control over PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) cameras for granular control, preset set/recall and tally control
- Lighting Control – Set and recall scenes of a lighting mixer and adjust levels via hardware or virtual control panels
- VoIP Control (Dial/Make/End call) – Use virtual panels to dial, make and end VoIP calls.
TallyMan Redundancy Package
The TallyMan Redundancy Package provides a full dual redundant control system in a single package with dual system controllers and automatic failover utilising Virtual IPs for seamless switching.
The TallyMan Control System is an all-in-1 control system and Includes all of the functionality and Interfaces required to build a complete control solution and remove complexity during system specification.
- Virtual IP addresses to allow for communication across the redundant system using shared virtual IP addresses to create a single point of contact for all system and 3rd party devices
- Configurations and live updates auto synced across primary and backup system controllers
- Dedicated Redundancy control panel (TMRP), gives real-time status and redundancy management from a local or remote location
- Manual control over redundancy activity allowing for easy maintenance and support from the TMRP
- Add dual redundant capability to an existing TallyMan control system
- Adds Automatic failover and Virtual IP interfaces for seamless switching
- Matching pair of TM1-MK3+ system controllers required
TallyMan sits at the heart of any broadcast system, coordinating critical broadcast infrastructure components and with protocol agnostic integration, provides operators with a common platform to universally control equipment from different vendors including routers, multiviewers, vision mixers, audio consoles, robotic cameras, intercom systems, media servers, automation systems and more.
