It has up to 2 channels of video playout and up to 2 channels of ingest or previous in the same equipment. Intake channels can be controlled both manually and automatically via Igson RecManager. The channels share the database and each of them has a preview screen, which allows to monitor in real time all the signals that are being broadcast or recorded.
The buttons of the Shotbox are programmed with a simple drag-and-drop from the database to the button that you want to load and can be guided for playback both video events and streams (HTTP, RTMP, RTS, UDP, etc.), live events, static images or audio files (mp3 or wav). Depending on their needs, they have the option of "Auto Play" - immediate playback of the clip at the push of the button - or "Cue-up" of the same video as the next playout event. Playout channels can be controlled with external equipment or applications by VDCP.
