Configurable General Purpose Interface

The IQGPI00/01/04 is a configurable control module for external devices and all RollCall compatible products.

This module uses the latest Grass Valley intelligent control software developed from the RollPod technology. This will allow the GPI to become a central controller for the most demanding network configuration. GPIs can be assigned to RollCall commands as before, but now with the aid of a PC program (RollPod Designer) the GPI can literally interact with the RollCall network environment, unleashing complex interactivity between external devices and/or other Grass Valley products.


  • Control products on the RollCall Network via external events, or vice versa
  • 11 optically isolated I/O interfaces, plus 1 which is non-isolated (IQGPI01, 04)
  • Outputs from IQGPI04 can switch up to ±48V at currents up to ±1A
  • 23 GPI non-isolated unbalanced I/O interfaces (IQGPI00)
  • Customizable solution allows programming of multiple events from a single trigger
  • Outputs may drive relays or LEDs
  • Direct connection to the RollCall network
  • 200 mA 5V power supply available on connector
