AVITA Production Control

AViTA is a real-time video server production control system for recording,
searching and playing media.
AViTA easily integrates into the production chain for News and Sports.
AViTA takes Hi Tech’s control expertise right to the heart of the production
workflow, providing financial and operational benefits to you.

From a 12 year heritage of designing and manufacturing VTR and video
server remote control panels, Hi Tech has developed a unique hybrid
control system using the very latest touch screen technology and modular
hardware panels to allow multiple users to access multiple server ports
over a network.
AVITA is a live production system that is designed to capture, edit and
play out media from multiple sources very easily and quickly – for example
pressing the “record” button instantly initiates the creation and recording
of a clip.

Using more traditional controllers, the clip would typically need to be
createdand named before recording commenced thus potentially
missing vital seconds from the incoming source.

The user interface is clear and uncluttered with menus that slide in
and out of view as required and the system is built to allow easy
conversion to languages other than English.
The core of the system is the AVITA engine that provides sophisticated
video clip management tools with shared databases, multiple play lists
and enhanced search facilities.

AVITA can be supplied as a software only system and can be fully driven
by a touch screen and features gesture control of the various system

Alternatively, AVITA is supplied as a system of hardware consoles and
mix-and-match control modules so that a panel can be constructed to suit
the operational requirements of a particular workflow application.
The hardware panel has a large clear touch screen with gesture control
that is used to manage play lists, server set ups, clip creation and management, database creation and searching and is used to configure the hardware
modules with an extensive range of functionality and appearance choices.
AVITA also has a unique feature to aid operator comfort when using the
touch screen over extended periods of time - a cantilevered hinge that
brings the screen to rest inclined in front of the hardware modules.
The system is highly expandable and has several software extensions such
as a MOS interface, multiple server port control from one panel, scheduled
play and record, a remote tablet PC interface for studio floor recall of
recordings, logging and highlights applications, tape archive ingest and
automated play out from single or multiple ports.
AVITA is designed to interface with any video server using industry
standard professional control protocols.
