Utah Scientific Adds to Master Control Family

Utah Scientific introduced two new additions to its master
control switcher product family. The MC-4000 delivers two complete signal
processing channels in a 3-RU package, offering larger broadcasters a fully
integrated system for the most demanding on-air operations. For smaller
applications, the MC-40 provides a standalone package that integrates the
company’s widely successful MC-400 channel branding board along with an 8-input
board that allows the MC-40 to be used separately from the UTAH-400 routing

The MC-4000 features switchable HD/SD operation for maximum
flexibility. Each processor channel has four keyers that can be fed with
internal logos or external key signals, a built-in two-window squeeze-back
effects generator, internal audio and video clip stores, and a complete EAS
message processing system with text crawl generator and audio buffer/playback

The MC-40, with two keyers, internal logo generator, audio
clip store, and EAS crawl presentation facilities, can be used as a stand-alone
master control switcher with four sources or downstreamed from a router to get
additional sources on-air. The MC-40 can also be utilized as a dedicated EAS
message presentation system downstream from an existing master control

“The MC-4000 and MC-40 are powerful additions to our
master control family that address the different needs of our customer
base,” said Tom Harmon, CEO of Utah Scientific. “Utah’s master
control technology is proven to be totally reliable and comes with the same
industry-leading ten-year warranty as our routing systems. Now we’re taking
that technology and adapting it for the changing needs of different areas of
the market.”
