FEED-MANAGER is a suite of tools used to monitor and manage feeds. Perfect for
Master Control or Production applications - this APP consolidates all
relevant controls into a single workstation. FEED-MANAGER combines XY router
control, Multiviewer control, Video Decode, Monitor by Exception, proc
handles, and more.
FEED-MANAGER connects directly to MAGNUM, acquiring a set (or sets) of sources
and destinations, depending on your user login. VUE will also be given an
appropriate set of multiviewer displays, layouts, and sources to control.
Everything is permission-based; MAGNUM is the central brain behind the
scenes. Throw-in VUE's native video decode capability - and your ability to
manage feeds is unrivalled! VUE sits on your router as a destination, and our
VUE platforms have the capability of decoding H.264, JPEG 2000, JPEG XS,
Uncompressed SMPTE ST 2110, and 3G-SDI. Whether you need to see a 480p web
stream or uncompressed 4K - VUE will help your operators improve their
FEED-MANAGER works great in production or a master control environment. In a
production environment - you're going to need to qualify your inbound
sources. FEED-MANAGER lets you cycle through more sources than you thought
was possible. You'll have near-field, every source at your fingertips. In a
master control environment, FEED-MANAGER can either be a one-stop-shop
solution, or enhance your existing MCR with a great suite of tools.
Whatever your hardware or workflow, the VUE-APP FEED-MANAGER will enhance your
operational efficiency. VUE brings together multiple controls into a single
UI - not only reducing the number of control surfaces needed for your
day-to-day job, but improving on the traditional broadcast controls operators
are familiar with.

X/Y Router Control
VUE was created to be the next generation successor to hardware router-panels.
Our goal in designing VUE was to create the best possible experience for
users. VUE can elevate any existing router workflow by making production and
monitoring operations simple and more efficient. Operators can customize
their own workflow, depending on their job's unique complexities.
VUE pulls all router control through MAGNUM.
MAGNUM is Evertz' orchestration
and control software platform, responsible for managing your entire broadcast
facility. MAGNUM can serve different router profiles to VUE, giving very fine
control over what operators can access, so operators won't have to worry
about managing permissions. MAGNUM and VUE also offers easy mechanisms to
manage customized namesets. Most of our customers have over 10 different
namesets, which is a testament to how user-friendly nameset creation is.
Customers commonly have a nameset for your Engineers and Operators, but could
create customized namesets for certain shows or events.
Lock / Protect Destinations
The Penalty Box connects directly to services managed by VistaLINK PRO. These services are
constantly vigilant for any alarms or traps registered by devices. If these
services go into alarm they will send an alert to VUE. VUE will display that
alert in the penalty box. Users can click the alarms inside of the penalty
box to be taken directly to the controls needed to resolve the alarm.
Some customers have requests for very sophisticated workflows: audio alarms
from overhead speakers; disaster-recovery and studio-flip actions, or
changing your multiviewer layout to show an AIR PATH. The degree of
sophistication is entirely up to you. If you want simple - we can do simple.
Most customers have their Penalty Box route the video of the serivce in alarm
to VUE, and bring up Automatic Change Over (ACO) controls or Frame Sync
VLPRO Alarm Log Widget
A/V Processing Control
VUE can consolidate all of your Audio and Video Processing controls into a
single, intuitive interface. Every Evertz device has been built from the
ground-up to integrate and be operated by VUE. All Evertz line cards can have
controls exposed into VUE. VUE can control devices through web-API, SNMP and
more. Devices do not even have to be Evertz hardware, as VUE can offers
control of third-party devices if applicable.
Audio Handle Adjustment
Multiviewers are an integral part to any operation. Evertz has come up with
great features to help you manage and operate your multiviewers. VUE connects
directly into MAGNUM's multiviewer module. MAGNUM will offer you a single
web-portal to manage all of the engineering elements of your multiviewers.
You can create different multiviewer layouts and configurations in MAGNUM,
and then expose them to VUE.
Your VUE workstation will pull controls from MAGNUM based on your user login.
Most users will have access to their multiviewer displays and the ability to
apply multiviewer layouts, and route new sources into your PIPs. Some users
will have access to multiviewer snapshots. A snapshot is a button that will
configure as many multiviewers as you want, to a previous state. Imagine
setting up an entire multiviewer wall in a second! That is what VUE

The different VUE hardware platforms all have different Video Decode
capabilities. We have the capability of displaying video and audio for H.264,
H.265, JPEG 2000, JPEG XS, SMPTE ST 2110, NDI, SRT, RIST and SDI. Video
decode is not necessary for any of our VUE-APPS. However, we recommend that
video be present for this application. Please refer to this diagram to see
our VUE platform and video decode breakdown.
There are several questions to consider in deciding if your VUE should have
Q. Are your operators non-technical?
A. Consolidating your video and audio monitoring into your control platform
will greatly help your non-technical users.
Q. Does your workstation have near-field monitoring?
A. If you have a QC monitor at your workstation, there is no need for VUE to
decode video. Instead, we'll setup intuitive controls for your users to
control your routes.
Q. Do your operators work remotely or in a Work From Home (WFH) setting?
A. VUE-ANYWHERE provides your users with a seamless WFH workflow experience.
We strongly recommend Video Decode if you're considering making your VUE an
essential WFH component.
Q. Do you want to consolidate as much hardware as possible?
A. You can cut down the number of screens a user has to interact with. A
single VUE interface an act as a QC monitor, audio panel and all of your
Salvos & Macros
Salvos and Macros can greatly enhance your operations. In MAGNUM, users can
easily create a Salvo (a list of routes to be executed simultaneously).
Salvos can be exposed to whichever VUE user stations you prefer. A Salvo will
greatly reduce the amount of time needed for your normal, day-to-day
operations. If you are completing a regular task, we recommend creating a
Salvo to help automate that task. Your task could be setting up a show that
is produced daily, configuring a multiviewer wall, or something a recurring
responsibility you would like to get out of the way ahead of time. Salvos
will be able to help you with your day-to-day operations.
Reflex is lightning in a bottle! MAGNUM's Reflex is a custom scripting engine
designed to help automate workflows even further. Reflex can pull in all
features under MAGNUM and VUE and perform a complex series of tasks
instantaneously. You could setup all of your routes, multiviewers, color
correction, third-party device configuration and more. It's our answer to
almost any "What If" question. Refer to
Reflex's API documentation

FEED-MANAGER can be tailored to fit your operational requirements - because,
at the end of the day, this is an APP designed to 'Manage your Feeds'.
The 'Service Selector' is the interface operators typically begin their shift
with. Operators will choose and select which resources they will be
responsible for. It is as simple as selecting from a list and
hitting 'start'. MAGNUM and REFLEX take care of all of the user permissions
and resource allocation. If you have lots of different resources to manage,
this is a perfect fit for you.
Our customers use this feature for many different applications:
Monitoring and Control for Hub-and-spoke
Production workflows for 'Pods'
Monitoring different Playout zones
VUE has a lot of different multiviewer configuration tools. The basics are
multiviewer layout recall, routing sources into PIPs, snapshot save and
recall, and simply displaying the state of your multiviewer. With FEED-
MANAGER, you can get so much more out of your multiviewers than you thought
VUE can overlay the output of your multiviewer with controls, so if you wanted
to full-screen a PIP, it is extremely easy. We can also forward the audio
from a multiviewer output to an operator's VUE UI, so the operator can take a
listen to any of the sources routed into the multiviewer.
Monitor by Exception
Instead of relying on an operator to search and identify any problems with
your content, VUE will provide an alert if there is an issue.
VUE integrates seamlessly with VistaLINK PRO's alarming and monitoring
service. If you have a VistaLINK PRO system, VUE can directly connect to it.
VistaLINK PRO will present VUE with relevant information about any service
interruption. Create a unique response in VUE for when this happens. Some
customers have audible alarms, some customers have a Penalty Box, and some
customers trigger an Automatic Change Over.
Total Routing Control
Source - Destination - Take.
FEED-MANAGER provides the exact controls you need. FEED-MANAGER displays
sources and destinations in ways that make sense for your day-to-day
• Local Device Routing:
Have a local QC monitor or Audio Monitor? Create a section within your UI to
control those devices specifically. Quick-filters like FAVORITES or CAMERAS
can be included so operators can navigate router-profiles with ease.
• Acquisition and Transmission:
Often, MCR operators have to navigate whole banks of encoders and decoders,
frame syncs, processing devices and more. We can display the state of all of
your devices in a way that makes sense to you. We will display destinations
in bulk, and provide color-coded representations of your route state
FEED-MANAGER gives you access to device handles for workflows like Color
Correction, Audio Mapping, Audio Shuffling, Frame Syncing and more. The
difference between FEED-MANAGER and more technical APPS like QC-PROD or
ENGINEER is in the number of controls. FEED-MANAGER APP is designed for
creative operators who work in a technical environment, so only a handful of
controls are recommended.
If you go with a VUE-ANYWHERE capable VUE product, you'll have the possibility
of doing a task, like Color Correction, while working from your couch!
FEED-MANAGER APP is a great 'jack of all trades' workflow. We'll include only
the necessary controls and throw away any distractions.
VUE's audio and video decode and de-encapsulation library is expansive and
growing to fit industry needs. VUE acts as a confidence monitor for your
We have different types of VUE hardware that can accept different types of
signals: Lightweight VUE clients can display compressed IP video, VUE
workstations can display compressed and uncompressed IP video, and the VUE
enterprise server (VUE-VCS2) can display compressed IP, uncompressed IP, and
3G-SDI video. Some customers leverage these capabilities in real-time
demanding markets like sports production, news production, online streaming,
file playout and more!
The real benefit of our video decode capability is that it is really intuitive
when combined with VUE's native Router Control. By consolidating all of your
controls into a single VUE screen, and adding high-quality, low-latency
video - your users will be empowered to do their job without technical
distraction. Combined with our ability to push VUE's UI to a browser
(via VUE-ANYWHERE), this is an extremely powerful feature that unlocks a lot
of possible workflows.
