Ignite Konnect
Integration of Kayenne & Kayenne Switchers with Ignite Production Automation
With the Ignite Konnect Live Production Automation System — the first and most complete link between the control room and the newsroom — you choose the level of automation that best suits your specific workflow and environment. Ignite lets you speed up your transition to digital production and eliminate technical errors, so you can produce more, and better live content quickly, efficiently and economically — with fewer staff. Move to flexible control room automation without changing your existing switcher workflow. Ignite Konnect scales up to meet your needs, so you can leverage the effects you've already built and take advantage of your existing Kayenne or Karrera Video Production Center switcher.
