A new and versatile multi-viewer range
O xygen DCT has consolidated its position as the UK’s premier broadcast equipment supplier by launching a new
range of multi-viewers that was shown for the first time at the recent BVE North exhibition.
The comprehensive MRS range incorporates triple rate 3Gbps/HD/SD-SDI and analogue performance and offers the
highest picture quality at a surprisingly low cost. With its modular architecture and unmatched display configuration
flexibility, the MRS range is ideal for any broadcast application that requires mission critical monitoring.
The MRS range incorporates three frame sizes: a pocket-sized multi-viewer with 4 inputs, a mid-sized unit with 16
inputs and 4 outputs and a large-scale multi-viewer, the MRS-X, which offers 132 inputs and 32 outputs.
Steve Hathaway, Managing Director of Oxygen DCT, says: The unmatched flexibility of the MRS-X means that
broadcasters can accept 132 separate inputs and display them in a large number of different configurations. This
includes displaying all 132 inputs on one screen or feeding images to 32 separate screens simultaneously. With
ultimate layout flexibility and unlimited signal repetition, this versatile multi-viewer can also be used as a routing system
to share sources across multiple rooms.
Oxygen DCTs MRS range also delivers peace of mind by incorporating signal probing, on screen alarms and frames
that are designed to avoid single point failure. The large-scale MRS-X features dual 132 square cross point cards for
redundancy, dual power supplies and redundancy fan cooling systems.

delighted to see our camcorders are in line with the EBU
