ControlWorks and AJA join forces to deliver live streaming workflows for custom Crestron integration environments
Control systems developer ControlWorks Consulting has teamed with AJA Video Systems to deliver a new module enabling seamless use of AJA’s HELO H.264 streaming and recording device in custom integrator environments powered by Crestron Electronics control and automation solutions.
The new module allows Crestron users to harness HELO’s SDI and HDMI I/O capabilities in their workflows, simplifying how video is live streamed to content delivery networks and simultaneously encoded and recorded to a range of storage options as H.264 files in custom integration settings. It enables two-way control from a Crestron processor via REST API communication, features recording and streaming controls, and provides access to device presets, and streaming and recording profiles, allowing rooms to have multiple streaming and recording configurations for each unique meeting setup.
Key feature highlights include RESTful API communications, remote control of streaming and recording, recall recording presets for automation needs and input selections.
“HELO is an incredibly intuitive, powerful tool for streaming in custom integration environments, making it the perfect complement to Crestron workflows,” shared Lincoln King-Cliby, Commercial Market Director, ControlWorks. “Teaming with AJA to implement their REST API has been fantastic and we’re excited to get this into the hands of our customers. We look forward to exploring how we might integrate other AJA products with Crestron solutions in the future.”
“ControlWorks is driving new innovation in control and automation for custom integrations powered by technology like Crestron, so we’re delighted to team with them and provide even more systems-wide compatibility to our mutual integrator customers,” added Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems.
