2011 NAB Show Preview
Utah Scientific
Booth N4511

Utah Scientific is a worldwide provider of analog, digital and HDTV routing switchers, master control switchers and related control software.

Enhancements for Utah Scientific Routing Switchers—Utah Scientific will introduce a new family of I/O boards that enables embedded signal processing (ESP) functionality in multirate UTAH-400 Series 2 routers. Utah Scientific’s line of advanced routing switchers includes the full range of analog, digital and HD (3G) systems, with integrated high-density frame sizes from 32×32 to 1056×1056.

Also new for the UTAH-400 series is the UTAH-400/MV, an integrated multiviewer option. The UTAH-400/MV integrates seamlessly with the router control system and does not require the use of dedicated router ports for monitoring. The multiviewer offers multiple outputs that allow the user to control the number of pictures to be displayed on each screen. Built-in cable extenders are included and outputs can be formatted in DVI, HDMI or HD-SDI, to support the widest-possible range of display devices.

The UTAH-100 compact routing switcher family also has several new additions, including monitor switchers and 32×32 routers for all signal formats.

New Squeeze and Graphics Capabilities for Master Control—It will demonstrate new internal squeeze and graphics capabilities for its MC-4000 high-end master control switcher, the MCP-4000 control panel option for its complete family of master control processors and the new MC-412 master control processor card for UTAH-400 Series 2 routers. The MC-412 master control processor is an integrated system that handles the most demanding on-air operations in live, automated, or automation-assisted operating environments.


This year, Utah Scientific has enhanced its GS-4000 graphics station by adding full-motion clip playback and enhanced data-linking facilities to enable automated presentation of newsfeeds, weather updates, school closings, and other text displays.

In addition to the MC-4000’s internal squeeze option, a cost-effective external HD squeeze processor will be introduced for use with existing master control switchers or for standalone use as a key source or for downstream applications.

U-Con Configuration Software and R-Man Management Software—For Utah Scientific’s control systems, NAB marks the launch of two major releases — U-Con configuration software and R-Man management software. The new systems will be on display with features including sophisticated SNMP-compatible alarm monitoring and management, an invaluable tool in critical installations. Also debuting is the UCP-LC family of control panels, which feature dynamic labeling and innovative new menu-based operation designed to simplify the use of today’s increasingly complex routing systems.

Finally, Utah Scientific will highlight its new SoftPanel-3 system, which makes it possible for a user to control routing systems remotely from any Web-connected mobile device or computer.
