WorldCast Connect has announced the software release 4.7 of Kybio, its unified, vendor-agnostic network management system for media and broadcast. This release that WorldCast will showcase at IBC2022 provides a host of new features to simplify day-to-day monitoring and improve user experience and workflow efficiency.
The release includes a new umbrella feature for multi-layered infrastructures. According to the company, it provides complex TV and radio networks with a “master” solution to oversee all their local sites across a single view from their NOC. Each local station or studio has a fully operational Kybio to monitor and manage its operations. At the same time, the master Kybio functions as an umbrella system to oversee the channel’s current state across the entire network. Users can also take site-by-site action when needed.
“This new umbrella system makes monitoring much simpler for large networks who need high-level as well as dive-in views of their sites. With the increased control and insights now available to them, they gain a relevant advantage in ensuring optimal operations at all times,” says Julien Libeau, Kybio product manager.
Visual and dynamic dashboards
Upon the first deployment of Kybio, whether on-premise or SaaS, users land on a visual dashboard of their Kybio performing self-monitoring. This feature enables users to ensure the software is healthy and fulfilling its monitoring tasks. WorldCast Connect says it designed the dynamic dashboard to display all the information as clearly as possible.
Other improvements in version 4.7 include the possibility to embed an SVG inside a driver with autobinding when a device is scanned and Twillio-integration for SMS delivery over API. This enables Twillio SMS messaging directly from Kybio without the need for extra hardware.
“This release is yet another milestone our team has achieved in making Kybio a highly flexible, scalable, and user-friendly NMS for users in the media/broadcast world,” says Nicolas Boulay, co-president of WorldCast Systems.
