LEIGHTRONIX TCD/IPTM Interfaces with KRAMER Routing Switchers

Holt, Mich. — August 6, 2004 — LEIGHTRONIX announced today the availability of a new routing switcher control option that links the TCD/IP Network-Managed Video System Controller with KRAMER single bus and matrix routing switchers that use Protocol 2000. This interface allows the TCD/IP to control KRAMER switchers on a scheduled basis and also provides remote management via a TCP/IP network. The LEIGHTRONIX TCD/IP is a specialized, programmable automation controller that provides unattended playback and recording for cable and broadcast television operations. It is designed to interface with and control video/audio signal routing and record/playback equipment. The TCD/IP also provides remote access via a TCP/IP network for equipment lacking network connectivity. The TCD/IP operates as a stand-alone system controller and is managed via network using the provided WinTCDTM software. WinTCD provides a user interface for creation and management of schedules for event switching. A software control panel provides immediate switching and the display of router status. Input/output aliases and device assignments created in WinTCD allow for easy identification of system resources and destination selection. Users can securely log into the TCD/IP’s Web server to activate/deactivate schedules, control switching and monitor switcher activity. About LEIGHTRONIX, INC.
