can be assembled in a variety of configurations, and without expending desk
space. Maverik also features modules for setup, effects recall, color
correction, resizing and clip store access, functions that typically occupy the
entire right side of a traditional panel. Other innovations include OLED
buttons with user-assignable thumbnails, a touch-screen at the M/E level rather

support multiple-M/E productions with a smaller control surface, and the
modular panel configurations enable more flexibility for the multi-media and
multi-platform operations that are redefining today's broadcasting, giving
operators the option of switching the traditional broadcast together with other
video streams from a central control point or spreading them out.
In the studio,
Maverik offers the flexibility to design the control surface in the manner in
which the studio is laid out. The operator can deploy a module on each side in
a horizontal configuration, for each monitor.
The 2013 IBC Show takes place in Amsterdam, Sept. 12-17. Snell will be in Stand 8.B70.
