K2E is focusing on 12G-SDI interfacing for 4K broadcasting since it’s now more effective to use hybrid approaches that combine IP and 12G-SDI for 4K, the company says. The UMC-1604 switcher consists of the UMC-1604M main electronics frame and the UMC-1604C remote control panel.
The K2E UMC-2016C is a master control switcher that features a 16×5 matrix, six downstream keyers and a seven-inch OLED panel that displays waveform, vectorscope and audio levels. The 19-inch-wide panel fits in 7 RU and can be used to control program feeds as well as switch them. The UMC-2016C also has loudness processing to maintain CALM standards.
