TSConsole is a front-end controller and monitoring system for single or multiple TSBroadcaster units.
TSConsole is most suitable to TSBroadcaster users who are playing out a significant number of OCAP applications, code images or data contained in one or more DSM-CC object carousels. TSConsole is highly recommended for production and live use and also advised for critical lab use also.
