A cross-platform, browser-based application that can command and control an unlimited number of OBPlayer devices. It's your central dashboard for media management, scheduling, and administration. OBServer offers continuous monitoring, logging of alerts, dead air email alerts and displaying OBPlayer machines on a map. It can send automatic heartbeat email alerts that indicate when OBPlayer has connectivity issues.
OBServer follows many Accessibility best practices, including the ability to set custom themes for individual users with different needs.
OBServer boasts a feature-rich Modules environment, with new features and functionality:
OBPlayer is a stable and secure UNIX-based media streaming application that is controlled by OBServer. It runs on any TCP/IP connection - even in a different country than the managing OBServer. It can be installed remotely at the transmitter site, in the station's studio or as a virtual headless process on a server at a hosted data center.
OBPlayer continues broadcasting no matter what happens. Functions by continually syncing with OBServer, looking for updated schedules, media, and priority broadcasts. Blank spots in schedule, falls back to a Default Playlist. If that fails, it goes into Fallback Media Mode then plays from the analog input. Finally, it will play a test signal as a last resort.
OBPlayer will always play valid CAP (Common Alerting Protocol) Alerts at the highest priority.
OBPlayer can run under multiple configurations:
- LIVE Assist with Mobile HTML5 Touch Screen interface.
- as a GTK desktop application for a Digital Video Screen.
- Standalone Emergency Alerting CAP Player supporting Audio, Image and Video alerting.
OBPlayer provides a GUI via dashboard for creating Streaming mount points. Multiple OBPlayer instances may be run on the same hardware including the same computer as the OBServer.
