Utah Scientific, Barco Partner on Multiviewer
January 13, 2010
Utah Scientific announced recently that it has entered into an agreement with Barco for integrating Utah’s routing switcher technology with Barco’s high-res multiviewer products.
The combined system will be designed to provide operators with an instant identification of the status of multiple video sources being displayed.
“Utah Scientific and Barco have a history of working together successfully on behalf of our customers,” said Jim Durant, market manager of broadcast for Barco North America. “This agreement enables us to provide them with a combination of two best-of-breed, tightly integrated products: a state-of-the-art multiviewer and a top-of-the-line router.”
As part of the first phase of the joint venture, engineers from both companies have already developed the M-V Bridge, a combination of hardware and software for integrating control of Barco’s SMV-116 multiviewer with the system used for Utah Scientific’s routing switcher line.
