Basic remote TCP/IP LBControl There is a long list of TCP/IP based so-called LBC ("LiveBoard Control") commands that can be sent to any LiveBoard family member. E.g. for triggering playout of a loaded content, pause a specific content, trigger a timer etc.
Full remote TCP/IP control by Automation The full remote TCP/IP control means that you may load LiveBoard projects, modify them, and do every single action that an operator sitting in front of the GUI would do but remotely, by automation.
Contemporary playout of endless plugin contents There are endless layers, no limits to the numbers of Basic or Full LB plugins that you may insert into a project and play out at the same time.
Basic scripting (FrameMarkers) You can add special FrameMarkers to the video contents or graphic templates loaded into LiveBoard. The basic command is "pause" but you may add a wide range of commands, such as the triggering of a different content, the loading of a different PIP present etc.
