Suffolk County Community College (SCCC), a two-year college known nationally for its radio and television production program, has purchased Echolab’s Overture1 switcher.
The new single M/E switcher will be used within a new digital production center at the school in Selden, NY. The system was chosen for its advanced functionality and feature set, including a greater number of keyers, new dip and DVE transitions, the SuperSource layering engine, and floating frame synchronization, the school said.
The Overture1 combines internal conversion and synchronization with key layering and special effects to provide control over complex production tasks. It accepts up to 32 multiformat analog and digital signals and provides as many as 16 multiformat outputs.
Internal frame synchronization helps to ensure the quality of effects, and the integrated up/crossconversion within MD models streamlines switching of video in multiple formats. Features such as the Stinger transition and SuperSource crosspoint keys allow operators to implement simpler workflows while creating more advanced visual productions.
