TSI uses Zandar's FusionPro for total monitoring control of its transmission facilities.
The TSI in-house team needed a flexible monitoring and alarm management system with intelligent layout control, as it was essential for a reliable, fail-safe multichannel operation. TSI’s system design engineers were able to configure what they wanted with Z Manager, Zandar’s control software. It allows multiviewer features to be remotely managed from a standard PC and supports the design and recall of numerous different layouts.
Z Manager allows on-screen and external alarms to be enabled on a PiP basis and scheduled according to operational times, to prevent unwanted alerts.
Operators use a combination of external alarms together with on-screen text and graphics configured for each PiP for UMD router tally, alarm state and audio level to ensure a fault-free service for the company’s clients.
The system design took full advantage of FusionPro’s alarm interface by using the alarm outputs to drive an external alarm light and buzzer controlled from a TSI panel so that operators are alerted the moment an alarm state is triggered and can react quickly to restore normal operation.
Zandar's distributor E-Mediavision provided consultation throughout the project and enhanced the application by customizing the alarm scheduling features. For more information, visit www.zandar.com
