Etere ETX continues to amp up its game, with a new feature that displays the countdown timer to the next program. Etere ETX is a cost-efficient channel-in-a-box with all the professional graphics features that you need.

Etere ETX is the next generation channel-in-a-box software that allows broadcasters to take graphics to a professional level of quality and functionality for a highly competitive price. To keep facilities at the cutting edge, Etere ETX is now equipped with a countdown timer that shows the time remaining until the next program starts. The countdown time can be configured for 30 seconds or 1 minute duration.

An integrated countdown timer provides many benefits within a broadcast station, including
Prevention of Commercial Break Overruns
The countdown timer gives the operator an indication of the time remaining before the next program. It is important that advertisements and commercial breaks are scheduled accurately without causing a program to run over its scheduled time
Prevention of the Occurrence of Dead Air
The countdown timer prevents the occurrence of dead air which is defined as a period when there is no audio and/or video signals. It is especially vital in live programming
Prevention of Unattended Live Broadcast
The countdown timer helps to prevent the occurrence of an absent operator when a live broadcast is starting

Etere ETX is equipped with full IP in and out capabilities and it is able to support 4K/HD/SD digital video, audio and graphics platforms without the use of middle-ware and proprietary hardware. As part of the eco-system of Etere Media Enterprise Resource Planning (MERP), Etere ETX is also fully scalable and integrative.
