Media Management: Media Manager allows users to drag-and-drop logo, audio, font and text files from the local PC, connected network space, to the channel branding devices. Files can be uploaded, downloaded, archived, or deleted using the easy "right-click" functionality. Status of transfers and actions are also provided to the user.
Playout Control: Media Manager allows for the quick access to a host of features including the "fade-in" and "fade-out" functions. Media can be taken to or off air using these functions. The tool also allows media control from remote access points.
Object Properties: Using Media Manager, users can "right-click" on any media file to display the properties and view a thumbnail of the associated logo. Thumbnail views can be displayed from the connected device as well as on the local PC or network storage space. Media properties that can be displayed include: horizontal and vertical positions, gain settings, and clock parameters.
Overture™ User Manager
Device Security: User Manager provides the ability to add security to the devices. Since the channel branding devices are typically in-path, protection from unauthorized access needs to be provided. User Manager allows for the creation of user profiles with passwords.
Tools Security: User Manager allows for the creation of user profiles that give permission to particular tools and their functions within the software suite. Profiles for graphics departments, operators and engineering can be created to allow users access to specific functions with the various tools.
Overture™ Media Commander
Device Control: Media Commander is a password-protected tool. The graphical interface allows operators to control various devices to take media on or off air using a touch screen interface or computer screen. Operators can also edit crawl messages via a simple editor. This is ideal for breaking news or emergency crawls. The Media Commander also allows for a central control point for remote devices.
