Crispin Introduces Control Protocol for Grass Valley's K2
, a worldwide provider of broadcast automation systems, has developed Advanced Media Protocol (AMP) control for the Grass Valley K2 server
The new AMP protocol allows users of Crispin automation systems to send commands via a conventional RS-422 serial link or via an Ethernet connection. IP control via the AMP protocol offers a major advantage, according to Crispin, by opening up a serial port that can be used to control additional devices or interfaces. Crispin can now control all Grass Valley Profile, K2, M-Series, Turbo, and digital news production products using this protocol.
"The value of the AMP protocol is significant," said Dave Neal, CEO of Crispin Corp. "Its addition adds another level of flexibility to our device control abilities."
