DNF Controls will debut three new PC-based control tools at NAB2005 designed to build on the features offered by its controllers, and to provide operators in broadcast, live production and news facilities with enhanced control.
The new Cue List transfer tool, Playlist transfer tool, and Drag and Drop Shotbox tool allow operators to leverage DNF’s control solutions by facilitating the easy transfer, storage, and retrieval of cue list and playlist metadata to and from a PC.
The Cue List is used for back-to-back newscasts or productions that share the same control room. The Playlist is designed to work hand-in-hand with the company’s 3040P Playlist Playout system, allowing operators to create playlists offline on a text editor.
The Drag and Drop Shotbox works with the Thomson Grass Valley Profile Media Manager application and DNF's 2044CL Instant Access Clip Control system to provide a fast and easy way to assign video clips to DNF's Shotbox. Operators can also quickly view existing assignments, clear assignments, and add new assignments while taking advantage of the many other features of the Shotbox and the controller.
