Copenhagen, Denmark (April 13, 2010)–The new PT0700R Client Panel, a remote unit for the PT0760M HD/SD multi-channel video waveform monitor, is the centerpiece of DK’s NAB Show presence.
The PT0700R remote Client Panel allows engineers to access the facilities of the PT0760M and the entry level PT0710M from an entirely different location. With this unit in place, an engineer in one location can see exactly the same audio and video display as the engineer in the Master Control Room. Engineers using the remote Client Panel can independently access all the facilities of the PT0760M without interrupting the use at the master location.
DK’s new Client Panel offers the same display as the PT0760M/PT0710M and gives users access to a set of soft keys that replicate those on the main unit. Both the PT0760M and the PT0700R display can be independently controlled, allowing for either identical or individual display of video and/or audio signals at both locations.
A simple DVI interface between Host and Client is provided and the unit follows a standard interface protocol, allowing any DVI/DCC interface to extend the distance between the remote and master units.
As the PT0700R has the same footprint as the PT0760M, it can also be fitted alongside the master unit, thus providing a second metering position with individual controls.
Both the PT0760M and the PT0700R use DK’s latest software update, which has resulted in a simpler menu structure making it easier for customers to navigate video and audio features. The PT0760M master unit also now has plug and play capability and incorporates Dolby Digital and Dolby E decoding, either from embedded audio within the HD/SD video or through separate AES inputs via a Dolby decoder module.
