Utah Scientific's Dot.Box Package Enables Economical Multichannel Operation

Utah Scientific has announced the release of Dot.Box, a combined dual-channel master control and routing system that constitutes a complete, affordable solution for broadcasters moving to multichannel operation.
With Dot.Box, multichannel is easy to implement, operate and maintain - all at a surprisingly low cost.
Tom Harmon, President and CEO of Utah Scientific, said: "Working closely with broadcasters, we see many that would like to take advantage of the benefits associated with multichannel operation. Often, what's holding them back is multichannel's perceived technical complexity, its capital requirements, and also the cost of keeping a system going once it's in place. We developed the Dot.Box package, backed by our well-known, industry-leading warranty, to enable broadcasters to overcome these impediments and realise the multichannel rewards."
Dot.Box comprises a UTAH-400 HD/SD routing switcher with 32 inputs and 16 outputs and two MC-400 master control processor boards with MCP-400 master control panels - everything necessary to put two SD/HD switchable channels on-air.
For reliability, the router incorporates dual power supplies and dual crosspoint/controller boards. The two MC-400 processors are housed in the router frame with access to all 32 sources and also feature internal logo keying and external key signal inputs for flexibility, automatic EAS message presentation, video frame buffers on all master control video inputs, and an independent MCP-400 physical control panel for each master control channel.
Router control is handled by the uniquely flexible SoftPanel-2 virtual control panel system, which allows the user to create and deploy virtual panels to meet any control requirement. Dot.Box packages are available in both 32- and 64-router frames. The Dot.Box 64 is wired for future expansion of inputs, outputs and additional master control channels.
Like all Utah Scientific products, the Dot.Box system is backed by the company's no-fee, no-hassle ten-year warranty with round-the-clock support. And through to December 31, Utah Scientific is offering the Dot.Box package at a special introductory rate.
