Client-server architecture

MagicSoft playout solution has a Client-server architecture and that brings some noticeable advantages for stability and usability
– server (which controls the Decklink card) and clients (which manage the playlist(s)) allow a better cpu balancing for today’s multicore CPU
– clips are verified in the client application before being accepted for playout
– you can have more than one client started and you can dynamically jump from one playlist to another

Linking with MagicSoft CG

The playout program has a very powerful way to link to the MagicSoft CG (Ultrared) acting as a TCP client to send the metadata associated to each clip to GC.
The TCP/IP protocol allows you to control the text or image displayed by a project and can also trigger the projects.
