The Switchboard software consists of two software packages, the Display package and the Scheduler package.
The Display package simply waits for playback schedules created in the Scheduler package. When it receives these schedules it generates beautiful high quality graphics that are output for Television Broadcast.
The Switchboard Scheduler can send playback schedules and video files over a network or internet connection using the FTP protocal. Using this method allows the Display package to be updated without having to shut it down to load in new data. This also allows you to place the Switchboard Display package in remote locations and still have complete control over it.
The Switchboard Scheduler software is not tied to any single computer. This means the Switchboard Scheduler package can be installed on any computer, allowing any number of people access to creating, editing and updating a Switchboard Display package.
