MC1 Master Control System – ROSS Video

MC1 Master Control System - ROSS Video

Cost-effective Master Control Systems.
Built to meet the demands of 24/7 operation. A dedicated card-based solution provides complete program path protection using input bypass relays, protecting your channel output. Our hot-swap system allows a single spare MC1-MK card to replace any on-air channel card, and have all of the channel’s parameters automatically recalled to the replacement MC1-MK card.

Intuitive DashBoard operation allows for an easy transition, and brings users up to speed quickly. Simple scaling solutions allow for additional openGear® cards; add an additional channel by adding a 2nd MC1-MK, or add a variety of additional functions such as Loudness Processing, Dolby™ Encoding, and Nielsen watermarking.

The MC1-MK is the most affordable, dedicated master control solution. The legendary, lifetime Ross support and 5-year warranty make MC1 an excellent value.
