Press release date: April 7, 2014
Las Vegas — RUSHWORKS, provider of low-cost, high-performance automation, production, and video streaming solutions is unveiling new integration and enhancements to its “powerfully simple” A-LIST BROADCAST AUTOMATION solution at NAB 2014. The company is offering show attendees demonstrations of the solution’s increased functionality at its Booth SL7627 in the LVCC.
“Here at NAB, we are talking with attendees about what we call our ‘powerfully simple’ solution because it’s incredibly easy to configure and operate, yet robust enough to address the needs of applications that vary from traditional broadcast to Internet,” explained Rush Beesley, president. “In addition, our return on investment and price/performance package is attractive for traditional broadcasters, PEG channels and Web/IPTV station operators.”
A-LIST Automation features up to four SD or HD playback channels in a chassis, with ‘live’ input pass-through and recording, and multiple layers of downstream graphics including bugs, crawls, and EAS. Multiple playback formats are supported, with real-time up-conversion from SD to HD. The system supports drag-and-drop playlist creation with added productivity features that significantly enhance workflow.
New for NAB
A-LIST now integrates the WeatherBug API for zone display of local weather and has the ability to insert playlists within the master playlist. New features that support playlist management of “live” events include Delay Start and Join In Progress.
SegmentR is a new stand-alone video file segmenting utility that supports fast, accurate trimming of segments within MPEG-2 or MP4 files. Segment information can be saved as metadata within the file, or individual segments can be exported as discrete files. SegmentR is interfaced with the Contour ShuttleXpress for maximum speed and efficiency when segmenting.
