.YES!Player is the SI Media multi-channel SD / HD / UHD / IP (NDI and SMPTE 2110 included ) content playout automation solution for MCRs. It’s capable of playing different types of programs: video files, encoded into the most popular formats and wrappers, from .MXF and XDCAM HD to .MP4, H265 and HEVC, live sources: satellite receivers, studio cameras or IP streams and other sources like VTRs and video servers.
It can be used with pure IP-based workflows, standard SDI or hybrid ones.
With impressive know-how coming from several installations deployed all over the world during the last 30 years, .YES!Player has an extremely reliable and user-friendly interface, now updated and ready to be installed and run in the cloud, sporting a brand-new web GUI.
.YES!Player is very flexible and can be easily adapted and configured to run stand-alone (channels-in-a-box) or to control all major branded video servers made by well-known global brands such as Harmonic and Grass Valley.
It can also control, through .YES!DeviceManager several types of devices like audio/video routers, master control switchers, graphics and character generators, logo generators, GPI/GPO devices, aspect ratio converters and many others.
Furthermore, .YES!Player performs last second changes in the playlist while on air: the operator, using a dedicated toolbar, can skip the current event to the next event, insert or delete programs on-the-fly, edit the clips (cut-cut), change the playlist order and change or add graphics projects. All the commands are executable by configurable shortcuts.
As a key role of the automation system in broadcast workflow, .YES!Player has several Main / Backup configurations: the backup, available in 1:1 (clone backup) or n:m (cold backup), guarantees 24/7 continuity in any case of failure. The bumper (filler) insertion is automatic and configurable from .YES!Traffic.
