SD- and HD-Capable System Provides Continuous Recording of up to 32 Channels of Content
BILLERICA, Mass. â€” April 1, 2008 â€” Echolab Corporation, a leading provider of professional video production switchers and broadcast tools, today announced the launch of the MultiPlayMDâ„¢ multidefinition, multichannel instant-replay system. This new system offers unique functionality at an affordable price point, providing continuous recording of up to 32 channels of SD or HD content. Full integration with Echolabâ€™s Overture series of production switchers enables users to realize powerful production capabilities.
â€œThe new MultiPlayMD provides operators with fast, intuitive record and playout functionality in a multiformat production environment,â€? said Nigel Spratling, Echolab president. â€œWhile the MultiPlayMD is an inexpensive instant-replay system, it offers the capacity and flexibility required for sophisticated live production. Similar to our existing product line, which meets the broadcast marketsâ€™ need for affordable SD/HD-capable systems, the MultiPlayMD offers speed and ease of use that significantly enhances overall production.â€?
Working with MultiPlayMD, operators can switch instantly between live, play, and record functions, with instant synchronous playback available on all channels. The system is fully integrated with Echolabâ€™s Overture1â„¢ and Overture2â„¢ production switchers and can be operated directly from the switcher control panel or from Echolabâ€™s Conductorâ„¢ control integration system.
Echolab will be showcasing the MultiPlayMD instant-replay system and other multiformat production solutions at the 2008 NAB Show. More information about the new system and other Echolab products is available at www.echolab.com.
