iControl Penalty Box

Monitoring by Exception Using Multiviewer

The iControl Penalty Box is a software component that can be deployed directly on top of iControl products or as part of an iControl playout solution. The powerful iControl monitoring solution is enhanced with the addition of a penalty box, which quickly brings operator focus to channels that need extra attention for rapid resolution.
