Product Highlights at the 2012 NAB Show

Date: 14/02/2012
New UCP-LC Control Panels for UTAH-400 Routing Switchers 
At the 2012 NAB Show, Utah Scientific will show a new family of menu-based router control panels. The new panels feature high-resolution, full-color LCD displays and buttons, offering a new level of user-friendly operation for today's increasingly complex routing systems. 
 
The UCP-LC series panels offer 16 or 32 buttons in a compact 1-RU package and an innovative 3-RU panel with touch-screen LCD displays. All of the new panels are based on a completely new user-definable menu system that provides a completely open platform for defining all panel functions -- from basic operation to the most sophisticated router management functions -- on a panel-by-panel basis.
 
Embedded-Audio Signal Processing for UTAH-400 Routing Switchers 
Utah Scientific also will be showcasing embedded-audio signal processing for the UTAH-400 series digital routing switchers. The capability comes courtesy of a new line of I/O boards that rely on advanced field-programmable gate array (FPGA) technology to perform signal processing. In the past five years, embedded audio has become the norm in media operations of any significant size. 
 
Embedded audio supports a more streamlined system overall, but its inflexibility can make it difficult to shuffle audio channels as needed in larger integrated facilities where quick changes to live feeds are common. Now Utah Scientific has built advanced signal processing into the router's I/O board, meaning it can deserialize and decode a signal into its component data streams without compromising the router's overall operational reliability. As a result, audio channels are shuffled automatically without an outboard device or manual intervention. 
 
The enhanced UTAH-400 routing systems also incorporate a virtual control panel to provide an easy-to-read display of the video signals and their associated audio positions. The GUI design enables control of digital signal processing functions and other signal configuration information. 
 
New FLEX I/O Signal Module 
Utah Scientific's UTAH-400 routers and UTAH-100/XFD fiber distribution frames are now available for delivery with the award-winning FLEX I/O signal module. By using the FLEX I/O plug-in SFP modules, users can now easily configure their systems to implement coax and fiber I/Os on a port-by-port basis. This capability greatly simplifies configuration changes as users' system requirements change. 
 
An increasing number of media operations are using fiber optic connectivity in conjunction with more traditional coaxial cable, which adds to their need for flexibility in signal routing. Utah Scientific developed the FLEX I/O signal module as an option for the UTAH-400 router and a standard feature for the new UTAH-100/XFD fiber distribution frame. With FLEX I/O, the user enjoys an enhanced ability to customize the use of signals according to the specific needs of a given application. FLEX I/O modules are also available to provide analog and DVI/HDMI conversion at the ports of the digital router. The result is maximized use of router resources for more streamlined operations and lower operational costs. For the UTAH-400 router, the FLEX I/O option consists of input and output cards that carry either eight or 12 signals and updated rear-panel assemblies to provide access for the converter blocks.  
 
Company Overview
Throughout more than 30 years in business, Utah Scientific has earned its position as worldwide leader in routing and master control switchers by working with customers to meet their needs for advanced signal distribution and control technology. The company's confidence in its industry-leading products is exemplified by its renowned no-fee, 10-year warranty and validated by multiple Frost & Sullivan Customer Service Leadership Awards.

Utah Scientific Quote: 
"We are very excited to share with NAB visitors the new approach that our UCP-LC panels bring to the design of the user interface for our routing systems," said Tom Harmon, president and CEO of Utah Scientific. "Our customers have been helping us design these new panels so that they provide the right combination of simplicity for basic functions and power to control the more complex operations."
