VUE is an intuitive and tailorable graphical control application that unifies multiple elements into a single work surface. With VUE's growing library of widgets, you can define work surfaces that enable contextual based control at your fingertips. VUE gives you the power to control routing systems, multi-viewers, branding engines, master control and terminal equipment from a single UI. Use VUE's layout and configuration tools to design a work surface that is tailored to meet your needs.

MAGNUM bridges all of the major components within the broadcast path using VUE as single point of control. This enables broadcasters to simplify facility workflow and gain efficiency while reducing operational costs.

Context Oriented

VUE provides customizable layouts to meet the needs of each user's unique operational requirements. Using the built-in widget layout and configuration engine, VUE enables users to create a tailored workspace, giving them the power to decide how much or how little they wish to control and see from a single view.

Intuitive Interface

VUE puts the control at your fingertips! VUE's highly interactive touch friendly user interface enables real time control and configuration of multiple systems using one device. Designed for touch surfaces, VUE's tailorable interface transitions operators from simple push-button panels to the interactive "look-and-feel" found in today's mobile devices.

Platform to Fit the Application

VUE is extremely versatile and can be applied to a wide range of platforms and devices. From control panels to tablets, VUE is the most flexible and scalable control application on the market.


Centralized Control

Users can access and control multiple systems from a single interface. VUE improves productivity and cost efficiency by enabling a single operator to manage an entire broadcasting infrastructure and operation, from content creation to distribution.
