The content a broadcaster creates is determined not only by the focus of the content. It is also determined by the visual presentation. How well a creative working in the broadcast industry reaches and potentially builds an audience, is determined by how well presented their brand is, which is why monitoring it is essential. SuiteLife Systems is well known for providing all sectors of the broadcast industry with streamlined Advanced Automation System Solutions. In fact, their newest Broadcast Monitoring & Management Platform, the GPX-32 Pro, is a tool broadcasters need to improve the management of their content.

SuiteLife Systems GPX-32 Pro
What makes the GPX-32 a monumental platform for Broadcasters, is that it is a universal interface specifically designed to support 32 parallel channels of analog, status (via opto-isolated), and control (via relay contacts) per unit. This Pro Broadcast Monitoring & Management Platform translates the General Purpose Input and Output (“GPI/GPO”) channels into TCP/Ethernet data streams for processing using the Axess software.
A single Axess system can deploy any number of GPX-32 units, which allows for almost unlimited GPIO expandability. The GPX-32 is connected via Ethernet, and this means that it can be installed either locally or remotely to the host Axess system for flexible deployment.
Because The GPX-32 is a “passive” device, information relays come from devices such as temperature sensors, door alarms, and light switches. Also included within the GPX-32 are built-in temperature/humidity, mains, and DC voltage monitoring with both 110/240AC and 20-60VDC operation.
The GPX-32 has a Punch Down Panel (PDP), which is used to facilitate the connection of passive peripheral equipment to the platform’s interface. The unit consists of 4 cables, 2 x SCSI 50pin, and 2 x SCSI 68pin, which interconnect between the GPX-32 and the wiring interface. The Punch Down Panel has PCB mounted 110 blocks, SCSI connectors, and jumpers. The PCB is mounted on a 2RU metal frame to allow for easy mounting in a standard 19″ EIA rack.
Additional features of the GPX-32include:
- An on-board processor with SLSWebControls responsive remote monitoring app with detailed programmable status, control, and metering
- A builtin SNMP management of local site equipment
- Ping monitoring of network devices
- Alarm/Event notification via SNMP traps, email and RESTful API
- Automation of fail-overs, reports, and fault management
- Full compatibility with existing SLSControls Axess Management Systems
