BSI Shows New Tools for Simian
Automation, operations and playout software developer Broadcast Software International is introducing the iPhone Simian Remote client for Simian Pro 2.2 (shown). The company says that the iPhone Simian Remote client offers all the remote control features of the currently available PC and iPad remote clients in an iPhone native app.
According to the company users can fully control Simian Pro automation, insert cuts into the program log from the studio’s audio library, set pass-through mixer levels, and even record voiceovers with the Voice Track editor on an iPhone, too. The iPhone Simian Remote client’s Voice Track editor includes the ability to preview the ending and upcoming cuts and set the crossover points of the remote voice track before uploading into the program log, just as if it was recorded in the studio.
The optional Simian Gateway creates a TCP/IP portal into a Simian 2.2 Pro automation system for Simian Remote for PC and Simian Remote for iPad clients — and now Simian Remote for iPhone, too — to connect to an on-air or production studio on a local network, or remotely across the Internet via Wi-Fi, 3G, or 4G.
