Operators can switch instantly between live, play, and record functions, with instant synchronous playback available on all channels. The system is fully integrated with Echolab’s Overture1 and Overture2 switchers and can take “still” and “slow” modes of operation from these panels or from Echolab’s Conductor control integration system.
Also introduced was the MegaKeyMD which is a powerful clip player, mixer, and keyer that can serve as a networked storage device for animated graphics and video clips. MegaKeyMD accepts both HD and SD inputs and features a two-channel internal mixer and internal linear keyer to support playout of dynamic video clips. The system is fully integrated with Echolab’s Overture switcher series to support complex animated transitions through the switchers’ Stinger feature. MegaKeyMD also may be used with Overture systems as an additional downstream keyer or mixer on any output.
