Microsoft Announces Updated Skype TX Controller With Many New Features

Skype TX controller launch

Skype TX controller is a software which gives broadcasters and content producers the ability to control and manage multiple Skype TX units from a single UI. Microsoft today updated this software which includes all new features like live video previews, remote setting controls, and integration with Skype Contacts.

Find contributors and start calls easily

It’s now even easier to find contributors by searching the Skype directory using a name, Skype name or email address. Once you’ve found them, you can add them to your shared contacts list so you’re ready to place a call at any time on one of your Skype TX units. You can see the contributor’s status which helps when starting a call and, if they’re a regular contributor, you can add them as a favorite.

Every tool you need to manage and monitor your calls

Call quality is vital to a successful broadcast using Skype TX, and the new mini-video preview feature lets you compare all your live calls side by side straight from the control screen. You can also check the inbound and outbound call quality and take a snapshot of the contributor, which will be shown automatically if the call quality falls below a pre-set level.  Once a call has started, the new call quality indicator helps you monitor real-time audio and video signals.

Manage multiple calls from one interface

Once program makers start using Skype TX in their broadcast, they often want multiple participants to join via Skype. The new software makes this even easier by allowing a single operator to manage and control up to 14 Skype TX units in a single interface.

Skype TX controller is available for free from Microsoft.
