The waiting is over! Today, we are extremely proud to present Barco CTRL, our new control room software platform. Our ambition is to simplify workflows, deployment and serviceability, allowing users to securely connect to their sources, from any location, and interact with the content on any video wall or operator desk.
Simplicity, scalability and security. That is Barco CTRL in 3 words. Our new control room software platform perfectly blends the most critical customer requirements into one, making sure you get the right information to the right location, at the right time – all upholding the highest security settings.
Although Barco CTRL is very powerful, it is also remarkably simple to set up and use. Deployment becomes a breeze with the wizard that guides the installer through the configuration process.
But the simplicity is not only focused on the installer. The user interface was designed for intuitive use, creating a situational overview that can be easily tailored to the operator’s personal preferences and function. Barco CTRL also offers one single platform for all control room visualization. Serving both the video wall and the operator desk, Barco CTRL extends the same experience over the complete control room and beyond (including break-out rooms, remote locations, etc.). This further adds to the intuitive workflow and saves time during crisis moments.
Although nobody knows what the future brings, the control room needs to be prepared for it. Barco CTRL is a system that lets users prepare for any situation. Including additional sources? Adding extra operator positions? Creating or expanding a video wall? Or even deploying subsidiary control rooms? No problem at all! By simply adding additional encoders and decoders, the solution can start small and potentially expand to a global system. Next to that, Barco CTRL also integrates easily into 3rd party video management systems through APIs.
Cybersecurity: it is the single most important aspect of control room infrastructure. And it is expected to keep on growing in importance. That is why Barco CTRL was created from scratch, strictly following the ‘Security by design’ principles. In this way, users can securely connect to their sources, from any location. All communication layers between devices are fully secure. Conceived with best practices like ‘Zero Trust’ and ‘Shift Left’ in mind, Barco CTRL is a full-featured solution that can even be deployed in the most secure critical environments. Barco CTRL also takes all possible measures to prevent downtime (including redundancy options of critical components).
