Etere Automation is a powerful, reliable and modular playout automation system that is able to enhance broadcasters' potential in terms of functionalities and workflow design. Its unique approach combines real-time device control and media asset management in a single product, offering a powerful mix of solutions and capabilities. It is a system to fit all broadcaster needs. Etere Automation is able to transmit streaming events according to the videoserver capabilities, and play in A/B switch mode and remote several devices among the large list of the supported ones, using network, serial, and GPI connections. In addition, Etere Automation database-independent capabilities enable different levels of fault tolerance, allowing it to run on Backup Mode, Master/Clone Mode, and Disaster Recovery Mode. Etere Automation's distributed architecture provides a system that can grow and change to fit all broadcaster needs. It runs on Windows and controls all the broadcast system devices. Etere Automation uses the database of Etere Media Asset Management to integrate all the activities in a single environment, thus allowing retrieval of assets stored in the station with no size limit, as well as to manage playlists and perform last minute changes.
