Utah debuts MC switchers to European market
Two powerful extensions to Utah Scientific’s master control family will be introduced to the European market at IBC2008.
The MC-4000 delivers two complete signal processing channels in a 3RU package, offering larger broadcasters a fully integrated system for the most demanding on-air operations. The MC-4000 features switchable HD/SD operation for maximum flexibility. Each processor channel has four keyers that can be fed with internal logos or external key signals, a built-in two-window squeezeback effects generator, and internal audio and video clip stores.
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. The MC-40, with two keyers, internal logo generator and audio clip store, can be used as a standalone master control switcher with four sources, or downstream from a router to get additional sources on-air.
