Kyle Means, AV producer and engineer at Atlanta-based Kyle Means Creative, has found High Resolution Systems' UDC (Universal Device Controller) to be his controller of choice for projects nationwide.

Kyle Means Creative specializes in providing screen switching, video content and camera switching for companies like PSAV, PRG, Spectrum Productions and others; Means also works directly with corporate clients.  Means is a former lead show team technician and director of sales at PSAV, Atlanta.  He also serves as technical director of Titanium Conferences for the International Titanium Association.

"I use UDC 400 and an iPad to create custom switching services," he explains.  "A lot of people use UDC to control Vista Systems' Spyder [image processor], but what I think is really cool is using UDC to control other devices like DT Videolabs' PlaybackPro so we can run concurrent video playback on multiple screens simultaneously.  That can only be done through UDC."

Means also likes the ability "to manage multiple AJA Ki Pro record decks," he says.  "I can roll multiple Ki Pro machines and manage multiple record decks."

He's beginning to experiment with using UDC to control multiple single destination switchers from a single control surface.  "That essentially gives clients who can't afford a true matrix switcher the kind of show that has multiple destinations," says Means.  "A lot of companies don't have these big matrix switchers but need that capability for a show.  So we'll have a number of switchers set up with UDC as the central control surface.  Through programming and UDC we can deliver the same kind of functionality as a big matrix switcher."
