Austin Community College routes with Utah Scientific

Austin Community College, in Austin, TX, has upgraded its 1200sq-ft student-run television studio to digital operation with a UTAH-400 router and associated control panels. Systems integrator Commercial Video Systems, also located in Austin, helped with the renovation.

Austin Community College is using a UTAH-400/32 router, loaded 24 x 16 and expandable to 32 x 32, which in September replaced an existing analog router. The students are not currently producing HD content, but the equipment was selected in part for its full HD capability. Because the UTAH-400 is already HD-capable, the college’s system can migrate into HD by simply connecting the HD signals as they become available.

Originally, the studio plan called for separate audio routing, but the UTAH-400 enables embedded audio, which has eliminated unnecessary switching matrices. The current system also represents a reduction in complexity over the previous analog setup, because all four of the studio’s VTRs use a single, central controller rather than their own individual controllers.
