Multichannel Smart Playout
DRILLARIUM is the master control room software which integrates the power and flexibility of state-of-the-art technology with the broadcast tradition of exceptional image quality and frame accuracy.
The current broadcast environment demands an ever-increasing number of channels being supervised by a single operator. Vector 3 has created the tool for this new paradigm of playout.
The DRILLARIUM’s frontend gives operators and managers the best available experience with configurable, intuitive user interfaces and smart to-the-point monitoring. The backend boasts a coherent and time-tested set of modules combining in resilient redundant configurations to fit the needs of any broadcaster, from national TV stations to large-scale multichannel playout facilities.
Stress free operation
With DRILLARIUM, operating and monitoring a sophisticated, complex multichannel playout is an experience of control and comfort.
DRILLARIUM checks the status of the equipment involved in the playout and the availability of the material needed for the emission, solving what can be solved automatically and informing the operator in advance of any potential problems that require human attention. Warnings are presented in a structured and timely manner allowing broadcasters to investigate, manage and solve any issues long before they become problems.
The modularity of DRILLARIUM not only allows for the creation of structures that adapt to the needs of each customer, it also allows these structures to have the redundancy required by the criticality of the installation.
DRILLARIUM is composed of fully mature software working on best-in-class off-the-shelf hardware, and each module is extremely dependable in itself. When connecting modules dynamically, an outstanding systemic resiliency is obtained. The modular structure also gives an extraordinary capacity to grow with granularity and an outstanding ease of maintenance because any module can be put off-air without the system as a whole losing any capacity.
DRILLARIUM is designed and built to integrate.
DRILLARIUM and the modules that comprise it can interact seamlessly with any third-party component, appliance, source or protocol that can be found in a master control room. It integrates with leading MAM and traffic systems using dedicated REST APIs, XML or JSON, it can receive metadata using RSS or any real time format, it can control any router and mixer using their native protocols, it can control videoservers with VDCP and its videoserver can play and ingest all major codecs and wrappers used in the industry.
Videofiles, playlists and graphics are updated as often as configured for the system to be always ready to resume emission in case is required. Choose your preferred level of availability.
