IBC 2010: Utah Scientific To Intro New Family of I/O Boards for UTAH-400 Routers
Utah Scientific will hit IBC this year with a host of new updates to its flagship product lines, including a new family of I/O boards for UTAH-400 routers, new graphics capabilities for the MC-4000 mast controller, and new extended Dot.Box multichannel packages,
“Europe has become an extremely important market for us, and we are expecting to have a very busy and productive IBC this year,” says Scott Bosen, Utah Scientific marketing director. “With exciting new introductions in all of our product families, we are looking forward to showing our customers and partners the latest innovations in routing and master control switchers from Utah Scientific.”
New Family of I/O Boards for UTAH-400 Routers
In Amsterdam this Sept., Utah Scientific will introduce a new family of I/O boards for the UTAH-400 router to the European market. These new I/O boards will allow users to choose MADI audio and IP video input and output options in addition to the existing analog and digital video (up to 3G) and analog and digital audio options. Utah Scientific routing switchers include a full range of analog, digital, and HDTV systems with integrated high-density frame sizes from 8×8 to 1056×1056 (including the 144-frame in 9 RU, 288-frame in 16 RU, and 528-frame in 20 RU — all with 3G HD capability).
New Squeeze and Graphics Capabilities for MC-4000 Master Controller
Utah Scientific will demonstrate new internal squeeze and graphics capabilities for the MC-4000 master control switcher. The company will also preview a new control panel option for the complete family of master control processors, and display the Dot.Box multichannel packages introduced late last year. The MC-4000 Digital Master Control Processor is an integrated system for handling the most demanding on-air operations in live, automated, or automation-assisted operating environments.
New Extended Dot.Box Multichannel Packages
Utah Scientific will show an extension of the Dot.Box family, a combined dual-channel master control and routing system that constitutes a complete, affordable solution for broadcasters moving to multichannel operation. The Dot.Box package, originally available with 32×32 and 64×64 router frames, has now been extended to include a 144×144 frame size. Both the Dot.Box 64 and 144 are wired for future expansion of inputs, outputs, and master control channels. With the new addition, the package can accommodate a wider range of routing requirements and facilitate the addition of more master control channels.
U-Con Configuration Software and R-Man Management Software
For Utah Scientific’s control systems, IBC will be the European launch point for a major new release of the U-Con configuration software and R-Man management software. The new systems will be on display with many new features including a sophisticated SNMP-compatible alarm monitoring and management facility.
