Supplied as standard with Mentor RG systems, Vector is a powerful based utility that allows remote configuration and status monitoring of single of multiple Mentor RG units within a broadcast facility across a standard Ethernet network. All of Mentor RG’s parameters, including output formats, test patterns and timings can be modified with immediate effect. The browser is password protected to prevent unauthorized access. The current configuration of any unit can be instantly verified and amended: alternatively, preset configurations can be downloaded to any Vector enabled Mentor RG system. Vector also provides a convenient means of copying a configuration from one Mentor RG to another, simplifying both initial installation and unit upgrades. The browser allows the operator to:
- Change multiple settings.
- Enable features.
- Upgrade the unit.
- Import new logos and proprietary patterns.
- Delete unwanted pattern files.
Users can also access information on version numbers and enabled features using the browser. Vector also indicates the unit’s status, allowing visual confirmation of Genlock, GPS operation and power supply integrity. Remote access through the browser enables Trilogy engineers to provide full diagnostics support via a direct connection to your Mentor RG unit.
