Rascular, designers of software-based powerful, customisable control and monitoring applications for third-party, professional video technologies, is continuing the expansion of its NDI ecosystem with the launch of ViewMaster Pro multiviewer. This has been created to satisfy the needs of both broadcast and A/V customers.
ViewMaster VR Pro is the multi-output version of ViewMaster VR, bringing all the functionality of Rascular’s NDI multiviewer to a multi-monitor environment with up to four separate multiviewer outputs supported. As with ViewMaster VR, each of the ViewMaster VR Pro multiviewer outputs can be configured to generate a unique NDI source with audio on the network, which can be used for monitoring purposes. The audio can be selected from any of the sources in the multiview.
Both versions now benefit from significantly expanded configuration and control options via an easy-to-use webpage. This includes not only the ability to configure both versions of the multiviewer quickly, for initial set up and live adjustments, it also provides the ability to easily configure control of the company’s NDI routing solutions – RouteMaster VR and VR Lite – from within the multiviewer. This gives users the ability to create routes and switch paths, with any available source able to be routed to any available output, providing an all-in-one approach for a multitude of applications.
All configuration options are presented in a clear and easy-to-use way to users, allowing quick initial configuration and subsequent changes to be made. ViewMaster VR can display up to 36 NDI Sources in a variety of layouts. The name of each source is clearly displayed, and users can easily select what sources to view. ViewMaster VR can also display NDI tallies, showing at a glance which sources are in Preview and Live. With ViewMaster Pro, each head of the multiviewer can be configured separately. Comprehensive audio control options are also available to users.
Rascular also provides the ability to create presets that hold all the setup options for a chosen ViewMaster configuration, allowing quick and easy access to preferred setups depending on the project.
Ephraim Barrett, Sales Director, Rascular, said, “We’re constantly evolving our NDI ecosystem as the market expands alongside customer requirements. ViewMaster VR Pro takes all the benefits of the single monitor version into a multi-head environment. This expansion also includes our brilliant new configuration and control options, especially the ability to configure and control our NDI routing solutions from within the multiviewer.”
