Utah Scientific announced that it has entered into an agreement with Barco to integrate Barco's high-resolution multiviewers with Utah Scientific routing switchers.
Salt Lake City, January 13, 2010—Utah Scientific announced that it has entered into an agreement with Barco to integrate Barco's high-resolution multiviewers with Utah Scientific routing switchers. The integrated systems will give operators a simple method for instantly identifying the status of multiple video sources in television and other video operations.
During the first phase of the agreement, Barco and Utah Scientific engineers developed the MV-Bridge, a hardware/software solution that integrates the control systems of the Barco SMV-116 multiviewer with Utah Scientific routing switchers to ensure seamless functionality for users.
Barco's 16-channel SMV-116 is a compact high-resolution multiviewer that includes a comprehensive set of standard features, including as many as 16 auto-sensing composite, SD, and HD (3G) inputs, as well as DVI-I video inputs (up to 1080p) for displaying schedules or important computer status information.
Utah Scientific routing switchers include the full range of analog, digital, and HDTV systems with integrated high-density frame sizes from 8x8 to 1056x1056 (including the 144 frame in 9 RU, 288 frame in 16 RU, and 528 frame in 20 RU—all with 3G HD capability).
