Echolab offers dual production for Overture2 switcher

Echolab has announced new dual-panel operation for the company’s Overture2 SD and multidefinition video production switchers.

Dual-panel operation allows one Overture2 switcher chassis to operate under the control of two panels, each panel controlling one of the two independent M/Es, providing users with the flexibility to produce two independent productions or to use separate control panels for collaborative switching of a single program.

Dual-panel operation allows production facilities to install one switcher system in support of two studios and control rooms. The second control panel may be used as many as 100m from the switcher chassis.

In live entertainment production, the dual-panel operation simplifies simultaneous switching of on-stage video and a broadcast feed. Rather than work around each other at a single control interface, two operators can switch more comfortably and effectively from their own panels.

Dual-panel operation is also valuable in training applications, giving instructors the ability to oversee and, if necessary, override the student using a separate panel. Because button presses on the 1M/E panel cause corresponding buttons to light on the main control panel, it’s easy for the instructor or student to see what the other is doing as they switch a program.
