Mentor System

Vector Software

Supplied as standard with Mentor RG systems, Vector is a powerful browser based utility that allows remote configuration and status monitoring of single or multiple Mentor RG units within a broadcast facility across a standard Ethernet network.

Key Benefits:

  • Remotely configure any IP enabled Mentor RG over a standard Ethernet network.
  • Indicates current status of all parameters and settings, even on remote units.
  • Displays event log file with time stamp for troubleshooting and analysis.
  • Simple cloning of Mentor RG configuration to speed future deployments.
  • Convenient entry of test signal ident text.
  • Remote firmware upgrade to reduce administrative overheads and ensure consistent versioning across all Mentor RG units.

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 unauthorised 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.
