DataBase Web’s elegant UI with a dark theme is well suited for usage in dimmed lighting conditions typical to control rooms and galleries. The possibility to choose required windows and toolbars and save their placement into individual interface templates allows to create ergonomic workspaces for every user or group.

The cutting-edge methods and components utilized in DataBase Web’s development and quality assurance ensure the application’s rapid evolution, bringing the required functionality to users in record time; to simplify version control and upgrade, DataBase Web ships in its own deliverable package, installed onto the main AutoPlay server.
Separate floating licenses are used for client connections, which in some cases allows to reduce the number of required classic AutoPlay DataBase MAM client licences and high-performance workstations for running these applications.

DataBase Web’s capability to run on new devices classes like tablets, touchscreen panels and smart desks creates new creative possibilities in TV show and news bulletin production, providing easy content access to presenters.
