Pesa launches Clikcontrol routing software


Clikcontrol operates over Ethernet, leveraging TCP/IP networks and a Microsoft Windows browser interface to provide direct control of Pesa’s routing system controllers from anywhere in the world.

Pesa Switching Systems, a provider of analog and digital video and audio equipment, has introduced a new level of remote monitoring and operation with its Pesa Clikcontrol network router control software.

Designed to help broadcasters manage networked routing switcher distribution, Clikcontrol operates over Ethernet, leveraging TCP/IP networks and a Microsoft Windows browser interface to provide direct control of Pesa’s routing system controllers from anywhere in the world.

Pesa’s Clikcontrol server communicates directly with the company’s 3500PRO or Ocelot control system via RS-232, extending the reach of the PESA control system. In addition to password-protected user profiles, Clikcontrol offers customizable features including local and remote salvos, hot takes for sources and destinations, and individual lock/unlock. A grid-based concept allows users to select single- or multiple-destination blocks to be switched concurrently. The system may be expanded incrementally in blocks of 10, 25, 50, or 100 users as the user network grows.

The Clikcontrol server can be installed on any PC that runs a Microsoft 2000 or XP Pro operating system. The Clikcontrol software resides on a customer-provided network server using either a Microsoft IIS HTTP server or an Apache server running on an Ethernet TCP/IP network. It is compatible with the full line of Pesa routers and may be used to control crosspoint sizes from 8x2 up to 1024x1024 and beyond.
