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.
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.
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.
