About the course

Control Various IP Controllable Device

A single pair of BB-1 enables control of almost ANY IP-controllable devices over the internet, including Datavideo's PTZ cameras and switchers.

Enables Numerous Remote Production Workflows (A Variety of Workflow Diagrams are Available at the Bottom of the Page)

The remote links created by BB-1 can be used to access or control almost ANY IP-controllable devices. Easily create a variety of remote workflows by adding camera controllers, switchers, workstations, encoders, decoders, teleprompters, and much more.

Control Up to 25 Remote Devices

A single pair of BB-1 allows control of up to 5 devices at each location, and each additional BB-1 provides access to a further 5 devices.

Devices can connect over the internet just as if they are on the same local network.

BB-1 connectivity is powered by our dvCloud platform; each dvCloud Professional subscription supports up to 6 BB-1s, while the Essentials plan supports two BB-1s.

Supports Low Latency, Reliable Streaming via SRT (Secure Reliable Transport)

Many broadcasters have experienced pixelated video during live streaming, often due to unstable network environments caused by bandwidth volatility. Streaming RTMP over unreliable, low-bandwidth networks can cause issues. With the workflow of BB-1 combined with dvCloud that supports SRT technology, you can now replace the RTMP protocol with SRT. SRT is better than RTMP because it handles problematic networks more efficiently and resolves data errors faster. As a result, your viewers will experience a better stream, with less buffering and lower latency.
