New Echolab MultiPlayMD™ Offers Affordable Multichannel Instant-Replay Functionality

SD- and HD-Capable System Provides Continuous Recording of up to 32 Channels of Content

BILLERICA, Mass. -- April 1, 2008 -- Echolab Corporation, a leading provider of professional video production switchers and broadcast tools, today announced the launch of the MultiPlayMD™ multidefinition, multichannel instant-replay system. This new system offers unique functionality at an affordable price point, providing continuous recording of up to 32 channels of SD or HD content. Full integration with Echolab‘s Overture series of production switchers enables users to realize powerful production capabilities.

“The new MultiPlayMD provides operators with fast, intuitive record and playout functionality in a multiformat production environment,” said Nigel Spratling, Echolab president. “While the MultiPlayMD is an inexpensive instant-replay system, it offers the capacity and flexibility required for sophisticated live production. Similar to our existing product line, which meets the broadcast markets‘ need for affordable SD/HD-capable systems, the MultiPlayMD offers speed and ease of use that significantly enhances overall production.”

Working with MultiPlayMD, operators can switch instantly between live, play, and record functions, with instant synchronous playback available on all channels. The system is fully integrated with Echolab‘s Overture1™ and Overture2™ production switchers and can be operated directly from the switcher control panel or from Echolab‘s Conductor™ control integration system.

Echolab will be showcasing the MultiPlayMD instant-replay system and other multiformat production solutions at the 2008 NAB Show. More information about the new system and other Echolab products is available at
