M3007 Master Control

Windows Computer configured with the latest version of TouchStar

The TouchStar Master Control System provides full function access to remote receive site equipment and cameras. The intuitive touchscreen interface allows operators to control diversity receivers, remote site controllers and cameras at multiple locations with ease. The highly configurable TouchStar software navigates from one receive site to the next with the click of a button. There is no limit to the number of remote sites an individual master can control. A single screen can be configured to operate equipment simultaneously at numerous locations. The TouchStar Master Control System includes a high-grade, rack-mountable PC and can be purchased with touchscreen monitor.

The TouchStar software has the ability to control a variety of devices at geographically diverse locations. It integrates all of the necessary functions onto one panel so the operator has full control of local and remote devices regardless of venue. The TouchStar software can be used to control video switchers, routers, microwave transmitters, receivers and various other pieces of equipment with Ethernet, serial or discreet remote interfaces. The system provides a seamless transition from one device to the next by providing a common interface regardless of the manufacturer or age of the system. TouchStar Master Controllers can be networked, giving users the ability to simultaneously control the system from different workstations.

The control panel is configured to display a large active view of a selected location as well as a real-time snapshot of the other remote sites. For additional convenience, there are built-in presets providing the operator quick access to a user-defined remote site controllers and camera configurations.

Real-Time Video
A Master Controller running TouchStar software can display a live video signal from each remote site. A locally controlled router provides automatic switching to the active receive site as the operator navigates through the software. This feature aids the user in quickly setting up remote camera shots by eliminating the need to manually switch video sources. To further reduce operator workload, TouchStar automatically stores a bitmap of camera settings in the preset as a quick, visual reminder of pre-set position. Onscreen control over video parameters allows operators to normalize the video as required.
