The Image Video tally control system is an
essential component of broadcast and
production environments. It must determine
where signals come from, where they go, and
how they are being used.
In a typical multi-production environment,
signals arriving at the facility's main router are
checked for quality, converted and then routed
as per studio requirements.
Studios use these and other local signals in
production. A basic tally system must:
• Track down the origin of a signal that
reaches a specific monitoring point
• Distinctively identify signals which
contribute to the on-air path
• Return information back to the signals
origin describing its usage
IMAGE VIDEO’s TSI-3000 based Tally System
goes beyond this level of functionality,
providing these standard features:
• Scalability – up to 48 controllers can be networked together with each controller having up to four
network interfaces installed
• Multiple Tally areas – Each controller supports 8 tally areas - This is ideal for a multi-control room
operation
• Distinct identification of signals in use by other studios in shared facility to avoid equipment sharing
problems
• Tally Expression Language allows for the creation of custom applications by the end user
• Alternate names for any signal, i.e. descriptive names for remote signals, or abbreviated names to
save display space
• Provide additional source names in the same display (i.e. combine a source name with the name of
the tie line or signal converter that carries the source)
• Interactive editing of display contents to place messages on infrequently changed displays
• Indicate on-air, next-to-air, or other tally states such as ISO or remote tally with a different color or
message
• Interfaces to all routers, switchers and multi-viewers using serial or Ethernet ports
• GPI inputs track other equipment or control display and status functions
• General purpose GPI outputs provide tally or control to other equipment
• TSI-3000 Tally System Interface coordinates all tally system operations
• Ethernet port combines multiple independent tally systems into one facility-wide system
• Change any aspect of tally system from a Windows PC, even while tally system is in use
• Save any number of tally system configuration files to disk and recall later for different productions
or operator preferences
• Monitor tally system from PC with on-screen display of multiple monitor walls
The IMAGE VIDEO Tally System quickly identifies originating sources carried to any point in your signal
switching system. It traces a signal's path through various types of routing and processing equipment
including routing switchers, production switchers, and master control switchers. The tally system can
interface to equipment from all major manufacturers including popular multi-image display systems.
The IMAGE VIDEO Tally System is extremely easy to configure. It can be configured to monitor signal routing
and processing equipment in virtually any arrangement. The tally system can even monitor signals that reenter the same equipment or signals that go to many destinations.
To configure the tally system, model your unique system by identifying the equipment you wish to monitor
and the signal interconnections between that equipment. Add remote displays to the tally system and
choose the type of information you wish to appear in each display. Add general purpose outputs and specify
their functions. You can connect equipment from different manufacturers in the same tally system.
TSI-3000
At the heart of the IMAGE VIDEO Tally System is the TSI-3000 Tally System Interface. The TSI-3000
collects information from signal routing and processing equipment to operate displays and tallies as
directed by its internal configuration information. The TSI-3000 is configured from a Windows PC
running the Tally System Console 2 program. Once configured, the TSI-3000 continues to operate the
tally system with or without the PC connected. Other TSI-3000 features include:
• All electronics housed in two rack unit frame
• Ten RS-422 / RS-485 ports
• Four RJ11 remote display
ports
• Up to four Ethernet ports
• One longitudinal time code
port
• Optional redundant power supply plugs into the same frame
• Color LCD with touch panel for configuration and status of TSI-3000 ports and devices
• Multiple TSI-3000 units connected together through their Ethernet ports can extend system
capacity or make independent local tally systems with shared remote information
GPI I/O INTERFACE
In most tally systems, there are cameras, tape machines, or other equipment that needs a control
signal to indicate on-air, next-to-air, isolation,or some other useful condition. In some cases, there is
signal switching equipment
that, rather than having a
serial port for interrogation
and control, provides only
parallel control signals to indicate switching activity. In either of these situations, the IMAGE VIDEO
TXI-48 and TXI-80 Tally Expansion Interface provides general purpose outputs and inputs between
this equipment and the rest of the tally system. Each unit provides up to 48 inputs and 48 outputs in
a single rack unit. Outputs are dry relay contact closures. Inputs can be optically-isolated, voltagesensing, or pull-to-ground type. Cascade many TXI Interface Units to extend system capacity up to
2048 inputs and 2048 outputs per TSI-3000 unit using RS-422 / 485 or Ethernet.
RCP-20 / RCP-40
TALLY MAP
VIRTUAL PIN MATRIX
Many applications require a dynamic user interface to modify frequently changing resources. Image
Video provides this functionality either as an intuitive virtual pin matrix GUI, or a dedicated remote
control panel. Common applications include camera delegation
in a multi-control room facility, or external tally assignments in
mobile production vehicles. Additional applications include
router control, remote GPI control and ISO assignment.
TALLY SYSTEM CONSOLE 2
A FRESH NEW APPROACH TO TALLY SYSTEM PROGRAMMING
With ever increasing system complexity and size, a new approach was required to build, program and
operate a modern facility wide tally control system.
Tally System Console 2, provides
the user with a table based user
interface, that allows source and
destination definitions to easily be
pasted into tables from
spreadsheets, or routing switcher
configuration software.
In one table, the user can view and
modify monitor wall display names,
as well as router and switcher
physical I/O’s.
Source and destination definitions
may be defined globally or on a per
device basis.
A source or
destination item may
appear on an
undermonitor display
using it’s native
name, a short name
or long name alias
UMD and GPI programming has never been easier
Once an under monitor display or a GPI output has
been defined, it can be easily reprogrammed using a
simple drag and drop interface. A source or
destination item, is simply dropped onto a target
(UMD or GPI), and the new programming takes
effect immediately.
The flexibility and high level of customization that
Image Video tally systems are famous for is still
available using a powerful tally expression language.
This language allows custom applications to be
created simply and quickly.
Tally System Console 2 comes standard with a large
number of prebuilt UMD and GPI styles that meets
the requirements of the most demanding users.
New multiple tally area capability means that a single
controller can accommodate up to 8 unique tally
areas. In a typical multi-control room facility, a tally
area would represent a production control room, or
master control room.
VIRTUAL GPI PIN MATRIX
Now GPI routing and assignments may
be made with our new integrated virtual
matrix. In a mobile production
environment, you frequently have to
reassign external GPI I/O signals on the
fly. Other applications include: router
control, camera delegation, machine
control, etc.
Multiple maps may be created and
recalled at the push of a button
RCP CONTROL PANEL EDITOR
Similar functionality to the virtual pin
matrix is also available in a dedicated
hardware panel with 20 (RCP-20) or 40
(RCP-40) pushbuttons.
Tally system Console 2 also integrates an easy to use
control panel editor which allows the user to quickly and
easily modify the functionality of the control panel by
dragging and dropping source, destinations, or control
functions onto buttons.
VIRTUAL MONITOR WALL VIEW
Virtual monitor walls may be created to allow the user to
monitor the status of any point in the tally system. In addition to
monitoring, UMD’s may be reprogrammed by dragging and dropping a
source or destination item onto the virtual UMD.
TSI-3000 TALLY SYSTEM INTERFACE

The RDU-1519 is a dual 17” under monitor display with four channels of audio metering.
The RDU-1518 is a single 17” under monitor display with two channels of audio metering.
STATIC DISPLAYS
If color change is needed but the display message changes infrequently, install static
displays. Print your own labels on transparencies, then insert labels into displays as
needed. Static displays provide the same 'look' as changeable display's, but at reduced cost.
Connect the tally system to the display’s built-in tally input to change color from green to red to
indicate on-air or some other condition.
The 7721 series of static displays features a plugable terminal block for tally connections, a
brightness control, and a tally color mode selector.
IMAGE VIDEO has a wide variety
of display models to suit any application. Select from three-color or single-color in 17”, 13”
and 8.5” wide models. Choose rack or wall mounting, or take advantage of space in front
of monitor controls with a unique front-mount mounting system.
Build a tally system from any combination of display models. Outfit an entire facility or
monitor wall, or start with just a few displays and expand later. To reduce cost, any display
can be loaded with fewer than the maximum LED's so you only pay for the display space
that you need.
SINGLE-COLOR DISPLAYS
If color change is not important for displays in
some locations, install single-color displays,
further reducing cost. If desired, single color
displays can include different colored LED end blocks to indicate on-air tally or other conditions.th
fewer than the maximum LED's so you only pay for the display space that you need.
