Wegener introduced CompelConnect.com, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering for small to mid-sized video networks. It provides management tools for content distribution, scheduling, playout control and monitoring of media players via the Internet, replacing traditional network control hardware. That means clients can manage the playout of content to a network of file-based media receivers, increasing opportunities for regional content insertion while reducing network launch costs.

CompelConnect.com works hand-in-hand with Wegener’s new iPump 525 IP media player to create a robust, scalable architecture for a variety of video applications, such as digital signage, informational displays, subscription services and corporate communications. The solution provides functionality to centralize data management and target delivery of file-based content, so broadcasters can insert the playout of local content, such as traffic alerts, local ads, weather or emergency information to networked iPump media players.

Also, Wegener’s iPump 525 IP media player and iPump 562 enterprise media player offer an overlay feature that allows video playout to be augmented with graphics and text. This makes it simple to immediately update hundreds of displays in private video networks with time-sensitive information with a choice of static, scroll, or crawl formats.

Compelconnect.com is based on the original Compel network control system – a hardware/software platform that provides simplified operations for dynamic media distribution via satellite or terrestrial paths for content providers, private network operators, and TV and radio broadcasters.
