General Information

Hamlet is very pleased to offer this exceptional range of extremely high quality products. MSC is founded on high reliability and high performance. Hamlet are master distributors in the UK and Europe (excluding Switzerland, Germany and Austria) region.

MSC understand the importance of remote control panels. They need to be easy to use, of the highest reliability and cost effective.

The MSC remote control panels operate over a standard 10BaseT Ethernet LAN. Most other switcher manufacturers either offer no remote control panels and rely solely on expensive third party control's connected to the RS232 port, one remote panel that ties up the RS232 port or some form of proprietary multi-panel interconnect scheme. Typically these proprietary systems have no isolation between control panels. If one panel fails possibly all of the panels on the network can be locked out until the failed panel is found and removed or fixed.

The most popular and easy to use type of control panel is the button-per-source single bus or XY type of control panel. Operation of an XY panel is very easy. Select an output button and the currently selected input for that output is displayed as the lit input button. Pressing any other input button will now select a new input for the enabled output. All Matrix Switch Corporation XY remote panels also support AFV (Audio Follow Video) and Audio Breakaway selection. When Audio Breakaway is selected the active video input is indicated by a constantly lit input button and the selected audio input is indicated by a flashing lamp in the active audio input's button.

The MSC range offers these in variety of configurations listed below as well as in your choice of two different types of pushbutton switches:

'E Type' Employ individually rear lit elastomeric switches with excellent tactile feel and high reliability gold contacts. These are our most popular and most cost effective type of button-per-source remote control panel.

'V Type' Panels use the same industry standard Veetronix re-legend-able switches found on the top of the line production switchers.

The MSC-GCP2U32 'SmartPanel' is an ideal compliment to our HD/SDI 72x72 switchers as well as our larger RGBHV VGA systems.

In addition to our lineup of pushbutton based panels, listed below, MSC can provide a variety of other types of control panels, including keypad / display style and desktop configurations. Please contact Hamlet for more information.

Model MSC-GCP1U16

The MSC-GCP1U16 1RU LCD panel is a ideal for controlling larger routers or when it is desirable to control multiple routers from a single panel. The panel interface consists of a 2.2" QVGA LCD screen, 16 soft buttons, and a jog wheel with 4 directional buttons and 1 center select button. Multiple router control profiles can be used for selecting what router to control. Easy preset recall, display of router labels, and other interactive interfaces are additional reasons to utilize this panel over simpler button panels.

Remote control panels utilize the TCP/IP protocol over standard Ethernet connected networks, providing high flexibility in installation location, whether located in the same rack as the controlled router or across the world via the Internet.
