Autoscript has released an upgrade to its Winplus-IP prompting software. WinPlus-IP v1.12 delivers updates including the ability to take prompt output directly from a PC as local video or NDI stream, deploy Autoscript’s Voice speech recognition system with Arabic languages, and use a single licence on different installations.
Other advances in WinPlus-IP v1.12 include a new optional Local and NDI prompter licence. This allows the prompt output to be taken directly from a PC as either local video output or as an NDI stream, meaning an XBox-IP or IP prompter is no longer always required. NDI integration with Autoscript’s IP prompting workflow enables fully IP productions to produce prompt output video for third-party equipment such as TriCasters and multi-viewers.
WinPlus-IP v1.12 also introduces dongle licence support, allowing licenses to be linked to a dongle rather than a PC. This gives users the ability to transfer their license between different WP-IP installations.
“Dongle licencing allows more flexibility for WinPlus-IP users.” says Philip Dalgoutte, product manager – Autoscript. “It’s particularly useful for rental houses with operators out on a variety of jobs each week, giving them the freedom to move operators independently from the prompting PCs. Dongles can also be used for manual disaster recovery.”
Existing WinPlus-IP owners who upgrade to v1.12 will be able to migrate from the current machine ID licensing to USB dongle licencing.
WinPlus-IP v1.12 will be supplied as standard with all new installations and a free demo version can be downloaded from the Autoscript website. Existing WinPlus-IP customers can upgrade for free for up to one year from date of purchase.
