LONDON—Autoscript today released WinPlus-IP v1.12, the latest upgrade to its prompting software with new support for the ability to convert prompt output from a PC to local video or an NDI stream and Arabic languages using its voice speech recognition engine assume usage of a single license on different installations.
“Voice allows real-time control of a prompted script simply by speaking the words,” said Ibrahim Akkad, Autoscript Regional Sales Manager for the Middle East. “Arabic is the official language of 22 countries in the Middle East, where the broadcasting industry is growing rapidly. This important update brings the power of Voice speech recognition to Arabic speakers, freeing presenters and production staff from being dependent on foot or hand controls.”
The latest version offers new optional local and NDI prompter licenses that allow the announcement output to be taken directly from a PC as local video output or as an NDI stream, thus providing the prompter required for an Xbox IP or IP in all cases remove . NDI’s integration with the company’s IP Prompt workflow enables fully IP productions to produce video with instant output for third-party devices such as TriCasters and multiviewers, the company said.
WinPlus-IP v1.12 also introduces dongle license support, allowing licenses to be linked to a dongle rather than a PC. This gives users the ability to transfer their license between different WP-IP installations, it said.
“Dongle Licensing… [is] Particularly useful for rental houses with operators who do a variety of tasks each week as they have the freedom to move operators independently of the input PCs. Dongles can also be used for manual disaster recovery,” said Autoscript product manager Philip Dalgoutte, adding that the approach is more flexible overall for WinPlus IP users.
Existing WinPlus-IP owners upgrading to v1.12 can migrate from current Machine ID licensing to USB dongle licensing. WinPlus IP customers can upgrade free of charge for up to one year from the date of purchase. The company supplies the latest software release as standard with all new installations, it said.
