At HD World last week,Snell announced new enhancements for its Morpheus automation system. Additional functionality has been introduced in several key areas to provide users with even greater control and flexibility in managing everything from simple server playout to the delivery of complex, ever changing multiplatform content.
New features to Morpheus include intelligent synchronization of time-delayed channels, greater support for triggering scripted, complex operations via simple manual intervention, implementation of the innovative spot-checking capability and further expansion of third-party device drivers. As revenues from advertising come under pressure, these new enhancements to Morpheus are designed to give content providers essential versatility to build smart, efficient and reliable playout systems suited to their exact requirements. The flexibility of Morpheus allows users to evolve the look, feel and content of their channels simply and quickly, in-house, and without additional systems expenditure.
