This is a quick run through of some of the features that VClock has to offer.
The configuration files that creates this demo mode can be downloaded from our website. You will need a licence in order for it to work (we can generate a time limited trial license - just ask).
VClock controlling Studio Branding and Lighting
This is a short video demonstrating VClock receiving profile change commands from an Axia console (it also supports Wheatstone, DHD, Lawo and others) and changing branding screens and LED lighting based on the station profile loaded.
VClock is running full-screen with an embedded browser and can be told to load different content into the browser based on any trigger command. For Axia that could be a profile load, button press, mic going live, phone ringing, GPI via an XNode and so on.
VClock also supports the Art-Net DMX IP protocol, so can control LED and camera lighting in the studio. Again this can be based on any trigger. It can also be told to change to new colours/brightnesses over a period of time, to fade or gradually change the colours.
In the background you can also see a full screen VClock. This is showing a clock face and lamps indicating which station(s) are live from the studio, mic live, alerts and so on.
Thanks to Premier Radio in London for allowing me to record the video in their studio, Studio installation by Westbrook Communications.
