The SCP-150 Programmable Control Panel from Sierra Video is designed for use with Sierra Matrix Switchers. Up to 64 control panels can be connected to a single video routing switcher. With 48 user-definable buttons, the panel can work as an XY, single-bus, or any combination of I/Os. Programming software can be used to assign a custom set of sources or destinations to each button. Salvos, categories, and breakaway (level assign) are also programmable on this control panel. By combining two of these panels together, the operator can have single button access to 64 sources or destinations. It is suitable for use in any truck or studio.
With the help of a powerful onboard microprocessor, the control panel is capable of handling a large database. This design manages serial communications with the router and up to 64 SVS control panels. All buttons of the control panel are soft key, which means every key can be programmed.
The SCP-150 control panel can be programmed using the free version of the Graphical Router Interface Program TyLinx Pro or MediaNav software. The software lets you choose your panel, select your functions and assign them to the buttons, store these settings in memory, and/or copy the configurations to multiple SCP panels. This control panel is designed to allow for maximum flexibility in the categorization of buttons.
The control panel can be rack-mounted on a standard 19" (1 RU) EIA rack assembly and includes rack "ears" at the ends of the front of the frames. Moreover, no spacing is required above or below the unit for ventilation.
