AutoPilot enables multi-site, PC-based facilities management for Burk remote controls, including ARC Plus Touch, ARC Plus, ARC Plus SL and ARC Solo. AutoPilot's fully customizable interface makes managing remote sites easy for operators, engineers and managers. Built-in reports are easily tailored to individual needs, and can be printed automatically or emailed as a PDF to station personnel. AutoPilot also includes network management functionality, bridging the gap between broadcast and IT by including SNMP and ping with traditional I/O.
Warp Engine polling, a standard feature of AutoPilot, enables fast, bandwidth efficient, real-time monitoring of hundreds of ARC Plus or ARC Solo sites at a rate of 100 sites per second, with each site reporting as many as 32 status and/or meter values. Warp Engine polling is highly efficient, requiring less than 400 bytes per second of IP capacity for each monitored site. If communications bandwidth is at a premium cost, it can be further reduced by selection of a slower polling rate.
Available as an extension to AutoPilot, Jet Active Flowcharts make automatic intelligent site control easier than ever. Broadcasters can design a wide range of automatic functions by drawing simple flowcharts to describe how the remote control should respond to different conditions. Jet works with any site in AutoPilot, even supporting multi-site control using different models of remote control.
