Widgets

Widgets are modules that provide a user with specific functionality — they can be as simple as a single button or as complex as a switcher row. 

Widget Configuration

Each widget supports its own configuration and customization, including the ability to set button size and color. The level of configuration required depends on the complexity of the widget.   

Widget Containers  

Link and group widgets in containers with all widgets within the group inheriting the channel selection assigned. Multiple containers can be added per workstation, allowing multiple configurable channel groups per workspace –true multiple channel control.

Canvas Designer

Enter the design edit mode for a blank canvas on which to build a workspace. In this mode, administrators have full access to the widget library. Functionality is split into logical groups such as Automation, Switcher, and Graphics. 

Use the simple and intuitive designer to quickly and efficiently create context-driven workspaces to highlight and prioritize data of operational significance, build panels for events such as live sports, deliver high-density multichannel monitoring, or simply show a huge clock to display a countdown to the next missing event. 

Quick Select Favorites

The Quick Select Favorites pane allows single-click recall of common workspaces, allowing operators to effortlessly jump between different panels as operational tasks require. Quickly and easily save and recall previously built templates, and store prebuilt workspaces for quick and easy recall, or to assign as a favorite at a moment’s notice. All workspaces are centrally stored so once a workspace has been created, any workstation in any location can be granted access. 

User Authentication  

To protect your on-air environment, the level of access can be limited based on a user’s role. 

Versio Control is integrated with our user authentication framework. Edit access is restricted to system administrators, while operators can be limited to view and control access. 

Access rights in KeyCloak can be integrated with Windows Active Directory, as well as with single sign-on vendors.  

Custom Widgets    

The Versio Control widget architecture provides an API framework for 3rd-party vendors or customers to build their own widgets, providing additional custom capability. You can integrate internal applications into the platform to further streamline operations.
