Equipped with unique looping inputs, the small Utah Scientific routers enable NCP to evaluate a given signal directly, rather than look at the signal after it has been repeated by a DA or other devices.
"For us it's a matter of ensuring the best possible quality control," said Mike Mundt, New Century Productions director of operations. "For example, rather than look at a 'clean' DA feed of the TX feed to the uplink, we want to see the signal that's actually leaving the truck. These cost-effective UTAH-100 routers are ideal for the purpose because they provide exactly the flexibility we need, and because the loop-through feature is unique. We love Utah Scientific's reliability, support, and responsiveness. Now that they have made these routers available, I am planning to keep buying them."
Utah Scientific's UTAH-100 line of compact routing switchers and signal distribution amplifiers consists of both fixed-frame and modular devices for all signal types in 1-RU and 2-RU packages. Like all Utah Scientific products, even the smaller, lower-cost routers and DAs in the UTAH-100 series product line are backed by the company's no-fee 10-year warranty with around-the-clock support.
"Utah Scientific is best known for manufacturing durable large-scale routers that anchor broadcast operations, but the flexibility of our newer UTAH-100 line is making it increasingly popular," said Tom Harmon, president and CEO of Utah Scientific. "New Century Productions was looking for a way to enhance quality control. We're glad that our UTAH-100 routers, with looping inputs, could do the job for them."
