DNF’s 3040P-L playout controllers enable Ascent Media operators to create playlists on a computer, and then quickly and easily transfer them into the 3040P-L units for playout.
The company is using 15 DNF 3040P-L playlist playout controllers to package live feeds from each game with commercials and feature shows specific to local regions. The DNF Playlist Transfer Tool, a Microsoft Windows PC-based application, is also being employed to create playlists on a computer, and then quickly and easily transfer them into the 3040P-L controllers for playout.
The 3040P-L consists of the ST400 controller with a large LCD display and Playlist Playout software. It controls one playlist per channel on up to five channels, for a total of 2000 elements. In addition, the controller features a one-source VTR channel. It allows users to create playlists, play them, and modify them during playout.
