RollCall Control and Monitoring System

RollCall Control and Monitoring System

Full signal chain control and monitoring covering video, audio and ancillary data

System control and monitoring

The RollCallTM system provides control and monitoring for the SAM product range with the additional capability of monitoring third party equipment via SNMP, serial or GPI interfaces. The addition of RollMap allows a customizable, graphical representation of systems, for both local facilities and geographically distributed sites. By representing broadcast systems in this way, our customers can centralize their monitoring operations - saving money, whilst at the same time giving them the detailed information they need, to respond to issues quickly, as and when they occur.

RollCall puts broadcasters in control of their entire signal chain – the most inclusive, customizable and flexible control and monitoring solution available. RollCall brings human intelligence to automated broadcast monitoring, giving a true assessment of the value of the signal and enables centralized monitoring operations. RollCall also integrates with the unique SAM Media Biometics Technology helping customers improve the operational efficiency and accuracy.

Interface with anything

With RollCall, broadcasters can control and monitor every piece of equipment both in the facility and in remote locations.

RollCall looks after video, audio and ancillary data – either automatically switching the signal path or triggering alarms and providing detailed information for an informed, operator controlled decision. RollCall can deal with any equipment, including third-party devices via SNMP, serial or GPI interfaces.

System components

The RollCall ecosystem is supported by a range of useful addons which enable remote configuration, secure TCP/IP access, use of other vendors SNMP hardware and optimized maintenance.


The RollCall Control Panel is a PC application enabling remote configuration and control functionality for all RollCall enabled Infrastructure. Navigating and controlling your infrastructure is made simple using standard ‘Windows Explorer’ type operations that any user of Windows is familiar with. Whether you have a small control network or multiple geographically separate and potentially unmanned sites, RollCall Control Panel enables access to your entire infrastructure, anywhere, anytime. Included with RollCall control Panel are key features that ease systems installation and maintenance, such as the ability to access User Manuals for the entire IQ Modular product range at the touch of a button within RollCall. It is also possible to backup individual
module configurations and apply software upgrades.

The RollCall Control Panel Package includes ‘RollCall IP Proxy’ - TCP/IP connection manager to enable concurrent connection to multiple IP enabled RollCall products. Connection to equipment can be achieved by Ethernet/TCP/IP, RollNet or RS422. Control of Non-Ethernet enabled RollCall products will require either IQCRSAD RS232 to 422 converter, or RollPCI / RollUSB to connect to the RollNet Network.

RollCall Control Panel is available free of charge to all users of SAM infrastructure products. It can be ordered on CD and it is also available for download from the Internet.
