NAB 2022: EVS offers advanced IP network control capabilities with new Cerebrum release
EVS has released the latest version of its broadcast control and monitoring system, Cerebrum v2.3, at NAB 2022.
Cerebrum version 2.3 introduces a new SDN licence called IP Core, and a new web client, which together bring higher visibility and control to increasingly complex production infrastructures.
The new IP Core SDN licence addresses the need for tighter network management. Integrated within Cerebrum, “it allows for the control of increasingly complex network topologies without adding additional complexity for the operators”, explained Matt Salvidge, solutions manager at EVS. “The automatic steering of flows protects against over-subscription, while the monitoring capabilities allow simple troubleshooting by the engineering teams.”
End users are automatically notified about potential network overloads for complete and real-time bandwidth awareness.
Also introduced at NAB 2022 is Cerebrum’s new web client. Users who previously had to install their Cerebrum client application on a Windows-based PC or laptop can now view their customised control interfaces in a HTML5 web browser. This enables them to monitor and control their customised router panels and other graphical user interfaces in a more flexible way, whether from within control rooms, equipment rooms, or remotely from any device.
“I am very excited about the new workflow possibilities that the new IP Core SDN licence and the web client bring, further increasing the power and flexibility offered by Cerebrum,” said Salvidge.
