At my meeting with Utah Scientific this morning, CEO Tom Harmon showed me the UTAH-400/XL. The router offers a 1056 x 1056 matrix in a single equipment rack while using industry-standard BNC connectors. The router is readily scalable from 288 x 288 to 1056 x 1056 and beyond using a single family of matrix building blocks.
The company also has introduced two new additions to its master control switcher product family. The MC-4000 delivers two complete signal processing channels in a 3RU package, offering larger broadcasters a fully integrated system for demanding on-air operations. For smaller applications, the MC-40 provides a standalone package that integrates the company's MC-400 channel branding board along with an eight-input board that allows the MC-40 to be used separately from the UTAH-400 routing switcher.
