Autoscript, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, will present its voice activated prompting solution working in Arabic at CABSAT 2012, held in Dubai from 28 February–1 March 2012. In addition Autoscript will demonstrate its new wireless presenter controls for the first time in the Middle East.


Autoscript’s voice activated prompting for the Arabic language is a major advance for the region. Customers are able to integrate voice activation seamlessly into their existing Autoscript systems with a simple software update; no additional hardware is required. Presenters can then control the scrolling speed of the text simply by adjusting the speed at which they speak.

“This breakthrough, once again developed in conjunction with customer requirements, underlines Autoscript’s dominance in the Middle East region,” said Brian Larter, Managing Director, Autoscript. “Voice activation is beginning to be adopted throughout the world and we are at the forefront of this technology. We have worked hard to make it easy to integrate and comfortable and reliable for the presenters. We’re delighted to present the Arabic language version at CABSAT 2012.”


Autoscript will also demonstrate the new Magno Wireless Foot Control. With the ever-increasing need for presenters to host news or entertainment shows from various places within a studio complex, this wireless foot control allows presenters to control the speed of the script anywhere within the studio location, without the need to run cabling. Using RF technology on the 400mhz licence free range, the Magno Foot Control will not interfere with any other devices and can be used up to 100 metres from the receiver module. The Magno Foot Control can be seamlessly added to existing Autoscript installations.

Another new wireless device on display is the Smart Combiner Wireless Receiver. As the need grows for wireless controllers, this receiver allows up to four separate wireless controllers to be used in a single studio, and further Wireless Smart Combiners can be added to increase this number.
