Pebble, the leading automation, content management, and integrated channel specialist, is pleased to announce new developments with its Pebble Control solution. Nikolaos Katsampekis has been appointed as Product Owner for Pebble Control, which recently won a major industry award, and plans are set for introducing next-generation functionality ahead of this year’s NAB Show in Las Vegas.
Pebble Control is a self-contained, scalable, and easy-to-configure IP connection management system built specifically to enable broadcasters to make the leap to an all-IP facility without the need to deploy a bespoke enterprise solution. It leverages full support for the NMOS (Networked Media Open Specifications) suite of protocols produced by the Advanced Media Workflow Association to facilitate networked media for professional applications.
Pebble Control Free was launched last year, winning an industry award in late 2022. It enables broadcasters to work with entry-level access of 15 concurrent input and output connections for free. The industry award recognized Pebble Control Free as being one of the best innovative solutions that have made an impact in the media and entertainment industries in 2022.
Pebble is taking an active role in developing the NMOS roadmap too and firmly positioning itself at the forefront of the open standards debate. It participates in the NMOS steering committee and chaired the NMOS IS-07 initiative, which replaces the need for wired GPI connections in an IP environment. The company also chairs the NMOS Modelling activity which aims to ensure immediate interoperability of installed IP devices.
