SCCC adds Echolab Overture1 switcher

July 11, 2008

Suffolk County Community College (SCCC), a two-year college known nationally for its radio and TV production program, has added the Echolab 1-M/E Overture1 switcher to its new fully digital center.

The Echolab switcher is part of SCCC's facility in Selden, NY, where students prepare for careers in professional broadcasting.

SCCC upgraded to a 1-M/E Overture1 system to take advantage of the switcher's functionality and feature set, including a greater number of keyers, new Dip and DVE transitions, the SuperSource layering engine and floating frame synchronization.

Echolab's Overture1 combines internal conversion and synchronization with key layering and special effects to provide simple control over complex production tasks and to streamline creation of a sophisticated on-air look.
