RouteMaster is our powerful and flexible unified router control and protocol conversion application. Built on tried and tested software modules, RouteMaster can be used with a wide range of video and audio routers from all major manufacturers – see the full list below. The size of router controlled is scalable in size from 64 up to 2048sq.
RouteMaster consists of the router control application, a license to control a single SDI router and four control client licenses. These can be a mix of hardware panels, web panels, automation control – the full list is also below. This number can be expanded in packs of four via additional purchase from us. This provides you with the control flexibility you need, both downstream and upstream. Additional SDI router control licenses can also be purchased, for example for easy tie-line and stacked router control. Routers using different protocols can be effortlessly controlled via the application’s built in protocol conversion.
Rascular RouteMaster VR takes the control capabilities and protocol conversion of RouteMaster and adds a virtual router for NDI®. We provide two NDI® applications for routing : RouteMaster VR Lite – an entry level 20sq router for small scale operations; and Rascular RouteMaster VR ideal for larger routing requirements up to 2048sq. It comes with a single router control license and four upstream control client licenses.
RouteMaster also provides a hybrid router – SDI and NDI® enabled technology- control solution. A single RouteMaster application is able to control routers from both the SDI and NDI® domain by purchasing Rascular RouteMaster VR and then simply adding an additional SDI control license. This is ideal for those facilities that require seamless router control across both domains via a single control system, be that hardware, automation, ingest system or web based. It’s equally suitable for new router installations or increasing the capabilities – and lifetime – of existing systems. You can add third-party hardware panels to existing systems, add IP connectivity to older serial routers, or simply increase the number of control clients supported.
The integrated web server means operators can control routers from any web browser, using custom control panels built with Helm Designer. And because it’s built on HTML5 standards, there’s no need for browser plugins.
