Pebble launches new IP connection management system

Pebble Control leverages power of NMOS protocols

Pebble, the automation, content management, and integrated channel specialist, announces the launch of Pebble Control, a self-contained, scalable, and easy to configure IP connection management system built specifically to enable broadcasters to make the leap to an all IP facility without the need to deploy a bespoke enterprise solution.

Leveraging full support for the NMOS (Networked Media Open Specifications) suite of protocols produced by the Advanced Media Workflow Association to facilitate networked media for professional applications, Pebble Control operates on web-based UIs and has been designed to deliver immediate benefits to even the smallest IP facility. It interfaces with NMOS-enabled devices from multiple vendors on the network and is easily reconfigurable for when interconnections change or when devices are added or removed, essentially providing plug and play capability for IP networks.

Pebble Control provides the following features:

  • Automatic discovery and resource management
    Full support for NMOS IS-04 v1.3 and physical and logical views make organising an IP system simple while allowing broadcasters to squeeze every bit of productivity out of workflows
  • Alarms
    Immediate feedback from the NMOS registry means users always know when critical devices go offline
  • Multicast settings management
    Provisioning the multicast settings for NMOS senders is easily done through a responsive tabular interface. The ability to export and import configuration data means users can delegate and quickly restore settings
  • Streamlined connection management
    Full support for NMOS IS-05 v1.1, alongside the flexibility of defining custom logical views and containers, means connection management is a streamlined and focused experience — as familiar as connecting SDI signals
  • Legacy router emulation
    With the ability to emulate legacy index-based matrices or routers, any IO or container can be connected using the well-known SW-P-08 protocol
  • Software and hardware panel integration
    Software panels compatible with NMOS IS-07 and third-party NMOS IS-07 hardware panels can be easily integrated to perform actions and display critical information. Pebble Connect’s own software panel provides configurable functionality and quick access to key features
  • Modern access control
    Designed for security from the outset with a design approach that has embraced modern access control methodologies. Authentication and granular authorisation through attribute-based workflows means broadcasters have the flexibility to shape user access as required
  • Flexible deployment and host management
    Pebble Connect’s ability to run standalone, as a redundant pair, or fully distributed and with a comprehensive UI for configuration means it can scale to the perfect size for any operation

Pebble is additionally making deployment as easy as possible with comprehensive online help and a series of tutorial videos available, meaning that IP routing and switching is within the grasp of any broadcaster looking to transition to IP.
