Introducing vsmWebPanel, a new touch-optimized HTML5-integrated addition to the Lawo VSM (Virtual Studio Manager) system.

Today’s content production environment is more fast-paced than ever. Production workflows demand speed, accuracy, and the ability to control studio devices from anywhere — even away from the control room.

Introducing vsmWebPanel, a new touch-optimized HTML5-integrated addition to the Lawo VSM (Virtual Studio Manager) system. vsmWebPanel lets you fine-tune your workflow like never before — build customized VSM control panels tailored to your exact production needs, then deploy them on mobile devices like tablets, laptops, even phones, to command your broadcast infrastructure from virtually anywhere.

Lawo VSM is the powerful, flexible IP-based broadcast control system that integrates easily with the largest variety of popular broadcast equipment, including video routers and switchers, audio routers and consoles, multiviewers, intercoms, and other third-party devices. Through its ingenious use of native protocols, VSM provides the “glue” that gives producers fast, accurate control of plant-wide resources — all in an intuitive, customizable, touch-enabled interface.

Another new VSM module is the vsmGadgetServer interface. Like the vsmWebPanel, this software is HTML5-enabled to allow deployment of the vsmGadgetServer interface on mobile devices. Users gain configuration and control capabilities for a broad range of connections from any host or device on their mobile devices using their standard HTML5-enabled Web browser — without the need to install or maintain device-specific control software.


IBC visitors can also explore an exciting new feature in VSM’s vsmStudio application: a new Ember+ gateway which allows operators to build their own VSM control cloud by “pushing” parameters to other instances of vsmStudio — enabling sharing of, and access to, essential parameters from anywhere: across campus, across the country, or across the world.
