PESA today announced the Smart32 remote control panel, which features 32 reprogrammable LCD buttons arranged in a 2×16 configuration. Designed for live production, it allows single keystroke switching for fast on-air selection.
The latest addition to PESA’s line of remote control panels, the new Smart32 allows any switch to be configured for any source, destination, level, salvo or control — and various key types can be displayed in different colors. Users can also select button brightness and set buttons to blink, pulse or be constantly on or off.
Through Cattrax, PESA’s management control software, operators can create command functions with up to three rows of text per button, plus assign predefined icon graphics for typical source and destination devices, such as cameras and DVRs. The Smart32 provides up to 16 pages of configurations, and panel layouts can be cloned to make it more efficient to create new configurations.
The Smart32 will be available in Q2 2014. All the specs and details are here.
