Utah Scientific to show visual control panel at IBC
Utah Scientific, a specialist in routing and master control switchers, will introduce the UCP-MV, a new visual control panel at IBC in Amsterdam.
The UCP-MV represents a new approach to user interface design for routing switchers. Its interface uses two touch-screen LCD monitors to combine monitoring and control functions on a flexible 3RU panel. The device works with the company’s routers ranging from 32 x 32 to 1056 x 1056.
Also at IBC, the company will introduce its UTAH-100 Professional Products series to Europe. The new line of small routers, distribution amplifiers and associated products is targeted to smaller broadcast and nonbroadcast facilities.
The series includes fixed-frame and modular routers and distribution amplifiers for signal types ranging from analog to the new 3G HD format. The routers are available in fixed-frame sizes of 8 x 8 and 16 x 16 with 1RU and 2RU modular frames that support routers sized up to 16 x 16 and 32 x 32, respectively.
The series also includes a full-featured sync and test signal generator with options designed for all professional video applications. IBC’s exhibit opens on Sept. 11.
