Helm: Overview

Rascular’s Helm system is a powerful way of controlling Broadcast equipment from PC-based systems. With Helm Designer you can construct simple, intuitive and visually appealing ‘soft’ control panels, using simple drag-and-drop design on a Windows PC.

Helm Designer outputs Helm panel files (with a “.helm” file extension). Opening these files by (for example) double-clicking on them will make the panel run using the “Helm Runtime” component.

The Helm architecture allows Rascular to easily develop additional device drivers, allowing complex panels which integrate control of multiple devices.
