Pebble to demonstrate its hybrid cloud playout offering and IP connection management solution at IBC 2022

Weybridge, Surrey, UK, 30 August 2022: Pebble, the leading automation, content management, and integrated channel specialist, is delighted to confirm its presence at IBC2022 in Amsterdam. Pebble will be exhibiting between the 9th and 12th of September in Hall 8, Stand B75. 

With playout automation solutions controlling over 1,500 channels in more than 70 countries, the company will demonstrate its suite of solutions including Pebble Automation, Integrated Channel and Pebble Remote. 

Pebble Automation is an enterprise-level solution delivering robust functionality at a scale that suits any operation, with the ability to flex and adapt as the customer’s channel count and workflows change. A powerful centralised ingest, content management and multi-channel system, it controls mission-critical operations at scores of broadcasters and service providers around the world and is scalable from one to hundreds of channels. Visitors to the show will see how Pebble is supporting the transition to IP, combining on-premises playout with channels running in the public cloud, all using the same control interface. 

Pebble’s software-defined, scalable, Integrated Channel solution with uniquely flexible channel pipeline design offers audio, video and graphics functionality in a compact, cost-effective format to meet the needs for ingest, channel branding and frame-accurate multi-channel playout requirements. 

Pebble Remote, a tool for web-based monitoring and control in the cloud as well as on-premises, provides 24/7 secure remote access to mission-critical control of playlists, as well as consolidating control access across several playout sites. Designed to support systems that comprise multiple channels, Pebble Remote has helped many broadcasters easily navigate the challenges of working beyond the normal boundaries of a playout facility.

Pebble is also looking forward to showcasing its latest award-winning solution, Pebble Control, for the first time at a major industry show in Europe. A self-contained, scalable, and easy-to-configure IP connection management tool, Pebble Control is designed to make IP connectivity as simple as SDI. It leverages open standards to interface with NMOS-enabled devices from multiple vendors and enables broadcasters to make the leap to an all-IP facility without the need to deploy a bespoke enterprise solution. 

A freemium version – Pebble Control Free – was launched earlier this year, providing entry-level access where users can download the software via a self-service portal. Pebble Control Free enables the broadcast and media community to try out the functionality, and upskill their teams whilst they contemplate their first steps into IP.

Alison Pavitt, Director of Sales and Marketing at Pebble, says, “We are looking forward to reconnecting with the industry once again at IBC 2022 and showcasing the result of the company’s continued investment in R&D efforts, particularly with our hybrid cloud playout solutions and IP connectivity. Releasing Pebble Control Free is our way of giving back to the broadcast community, whether they’re an end user or vendor. It fills an important gap in the technology stack, effectively democratising the transition to IP.” 

Pebble CTO, Miroslav Jeras adds, “Broadcasters are navigating their way through their IP transition, and finding the right partner like Pebble is critical to business success as they take this next step. We have no doubt that one of the hot topics at IBC will be around how to successfully make the leap from SDI to IP, and we’re looking forward to sharing our insights and expertise at the show.”
