Utah Scientific hits NAB with new master control
Utah Scientific will introduce the MC-400 Master Control switcher at NAB later this month, a new master control and channel-branding module that fits into an output slot of a UTAH-400 router. The system features dual keyers, an internal logo store and audio clip store, and full audio/video mixing functionality. The MC-400 can be controlled by the new MCP-400, a 2-RU control panel designed to match the functions of the new switcher module, or it can be used with an existing, full-featured MC-2020 control panel. Also new is the KP-400 Dual-Channel Key Processor, based on the design of the MC-400 master control switcher. It has two independent HD/SD keyers with full preview capabilities on a board that can be installed in a standard UTAH-400 routing switcher output slot. A 1-RU control panel provides access to all key adjustment and operational controls. And those looking for programmable router control panels will want to check out the UCP-MM Multi-Mode Control Panel, a fully programmable router control panel with multiple user-selectable operating modes including multi-bus, X-Y, and direct take modes. The UCP-MM offers maximum operational flexibility through the use of dynamically re-legendable buttons and touch-screen LCD displays.
