Pebble Beach Systems, a supplier of automation, content management and integrated channel technology, will be demonstrating important new enhancements to its products at CABSAT this year on stand G3-31.
The company has a large installed user base in the Middle East, and has developed many region-specific features for its automation and channel delivery products, including an Arabic user interface, dynamic graphics control with Arabic text, and a function that enables broadcasters to easily manage prayer breaks in their schedules.
Pebble Web Client
Pebble Beach Systems’ suite of Web Client tools offers a range of functions from straightforward monitoring of a single playlist, up to highly granular remote control of multiple Marina automation systems and Dolphin integrated channel devices across geographically dispersed locations. Developed using HTML5 and the latest Web Server technology, the Web Client tools are designed to offer close to real time access to single or multiple systems of all sizes and architectures on PC or tablet devices using Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer or Firefox browsers.
‘Lighthouse’ - Monitoring by Exception Dashboard
Designed to alert Marina automation operators clearly and unambiguously to upcoming problems, Lighthouse is a new dashboard display tool that monitors by exception. It aggregates all lists within the system, displaying a dashboard of the next problem on any list, and enabling early intervention in the case of, for example, validation errors, timing anomalies or missing media alerts. As the trend for more channels to be controlled by fewer operators continues, Lighthouse maximises the opportunity for early error detection and safeguards the smooth playout of all channels.
The company’s Regional Manager for the Middle East, Samir Isbaih, confirms: “Our solutions now control over 300 channels in the Middle East region, making us the leading provider in this quality-conscious market. In addition to demonstrating these enhancements, we will be making some major contract announcements at the show, and we look forward making the most of the excellent networking opportunities which CABSAT provides.”
Managing Director Peter Hajittofi confirms: “Pebble Beach Systems focuses on delivering automation and channel delivery solutions which enable customers to exploit legacy and best of breed technologies whilst offering a migration path to new technologies. With the introduction of new features such as the Web Client and the ClassX plug in, we continue to deliver innovative and adaptable tools which enable more efficient operations.”
