Florida Church Achieves Interoperability with Control System

An advanced control system platform by TSL Products connects new and legacy equipment at church across a single production surface.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- In order to achieve a flexible tally communication between its legacy and new production equipment, First Baptist Church of Jacksonville recently integrated TSL ProductsTallyMan control system into its control room upgrade.

With four distinct campuses across the city, FBC JAX was specifically looking for a means of integrating a new Ross Ultrix 12G Router with the facility’s 12-year-old Sony MVS switcher. According to Ballard, the TallyMan’s “single box solution” and extensive interface library spanning modern IP and legacy serial protocols provided an immediate means of achieving interconnectivity between older and new equipment.  

TallyMan’s intuitive interface enables users to establish seamless communication between all production equipment on a single, unified layer. It provides a diverse array of control resources, capable of acting as a standalone solution for small facilities or part of a multi-controller system for an infinitely expandable solution.

For live production, Ballard says that TallyMan provides his team with “far better insight” than ever before, especially with six cameras operating at all times. Ballard also highlights the user-friendly nature of TallyMan, with reusable, multi-level actions easily grouped into a simple control surface.
