LEIGHTRONIX adds functionality and provides new look with the latest release of firmware and WinLGX 7

LEIGHTRONIX has rolled out a number of product enhancements for the NEXUS® series and E-HD2™ video servers with the release of the updated WinLGX™ 7 scheduling software and latest firmware updates. The new enhancements not only increase the products’ ease-of-use, but also advance their functionality, at no cost to LEIGHTRONIX customers.

New Appearance—The WinLGX scheduling software now has updated graphics with new default menu bar icons and new custom themes/skins. Users now have the ability to select from numerous themes for the entire WinLGX interface, menus, and tabs.

Greater Cross Browser Compatibility—As part of the firmware update, WebNEXUS™ and the E HD2 web interface have been updated with new graphics and functionality, providing additional features and a more user friendly experience in popular web browsers. For UltraNEXUS™ users, WebNEXUS now provides the ability to record MPEG files and change the record settings, as well as add PEG Central® index points to recordings.

WebNEXUS and the E-HD2 web interface also allow users to access log files, perform firmware updates, and change system settings, including site information and front panel “admin” passwords.

Create Multiple Virtual Channel Playlists—With the new firmware updates, users can now create and save multiple Virtual Channel playlists using their server’s web interface. For even greater flexibility, save individual playlists as Virtual Channel playlist files (.vc) and then access the files through WinLGX for scheduling as a program event or for immediate display through the control panel. The new web interface weekday playlist presets can be used to automatically display a different playlist between or in place of scheduled programming on each day of the week, while the “Default” preset serves as a backup for empty day presets. Week of day/default playlist presets may be saved in a Virtual Channel configuration file (.vcf), allowing users to quickly change out one week of playlists for another.

NEXUS Slide Editor—The NEXUS slide editor in WebNEXUS has been updated to include some of the same professional graphics and text features previously only available in the UltraNEXUS and UltraNEXUS-SDI™ Advanced Slide Editor. NEXUS users can now add multiple layers of graphics and text to each slide as well as create shapes and utilize gradient fill effects.

PEGcasting—With the NEXUS series firmware update, UltraNEXUS users can now PEGcast™ files they are recording to a second NEXUS series server. Once the WebNEXUS PEGcasting™ feature is enabled, UltraNEXUS users may then use the WebNEXUS “File Destinations” screen to activate autoplayback of transferring files on either or both of the second NEXUS server’s MPEG players. Playback can be specified to begin in as little as two minutes after each file transfer begins for a Next to Live™ broadcast.
