NAB 2012: Studer announces integration of EMBER protocol with Vista consoles

Harman’s Studer has announced the expanded integration of the EMBER protocol into Studer Vista consoles at booth C2619, in addition to the existing inclusion in Studer’s OnAir range of consoles.

The Ember protocol provides integration of Studer Vista and OnAir series consoles with 3rd party broadcast control systems and newsroom production automation systems. Such a workflow is designed to enable broadcasters to add and expand newscasting without adding overheads in newsroom operations, and improve workflow and newsgathering ability, while retaining the ability to go to manual override for breaking news.

“Supporting the networking and routing needs of broadcasters is nothing new for us at Studer,” said Katy Templeman-Holmes, Marketing Manager for Studer in the USA. “Some of the world’s largest broadcasters have trusted Studer for over a decade to manage the integrity of their network operations with the Route 3000, Route 6000, Pro-Bel and now we will further support broadcasters’ needs with the integration of Ember.”

EMBER control is available across the range of Studer consoles, including the new compact OnAir 1500 console, so it can be used from large-scale public broadcast situations to small local stations according to budget.

EMBER will be shown with the Vista 5 series of consoles on the Harman Studer booth C2619 at the NAB show, in addition to the showcase of Studer’s five other new products being launched at the show.
