WinPlus is a Windows based teleprompting application that works together with X-Box Ultra hardware.
The choice of newsrooms worldwide, WinPlus News software is an extremely powerful and versatile prompting package. User-friendly drop down menus and configurable display options add to its versatility. The WinPlus News package comes complete with an X-Box Ultra, which provides four video outputs (PAL/NTSC) and Genlock option. Also included is a configurable 5 button Deskpad Optical Scroll Control (HC-1).
WinPlus News is compatible with all leading Newsroom systems (NCS) including AP Newscenter, ENPS, i-News, Dalet, News Wire/Open Media, Newsmaker, Newstar. MOS Protocol: ENPS, News Works, Octopus and Eidoe Media. (Please call Autoscript for more information if newsroom interface is not listed.)
WinPlus News is laptop compatible. Based on our successful X-Box USB external box solution for prompting, the X-Box Ultra provides enhanced features and capabilities making it ideal, especially for portable prompting. Just plug it into a laptop or PC via the USB 2.0 interface. The video output is standard composite PAL or NTSC or with optional upgrade SDI. It runs with exactly the same WinPlus versions that run with the (now discontinued) PCI Prompt Card, no additional operator training will be required. USB 2.0 allows faster response time from controllers. Next & Previous story selection are instant with no lag, faster editing and on screen changes.
The Genlock input can be used as the ControlNet connection for any Autoscript controller (HC-1 Hand Control, MFC Magno Foot Control, WSC & WFC Wireless Hand and Foot Control). This input is self seeking with no jumper changes required on the board. In essence, you can now run 100-150 metres from the X-Box Ultra to a control device or a Smart Combi (SCB) via the BNC that is marked as Genlock.
