With Picture Key technology, control surface designs can be customised with different button shapes optimised for the given application. During operation, a number of different functions can be displayed on the buttons, with further depth offered by the layered technology, all saving valuable real estate.
After a year of collaboration, the partnership between Fairlight and SUZOHAPP has resulted in the development of a 2RU Control Panel targeted at Broadcasters who are looking for video router control, vision switches and camera control.
“We are ecstatic with the partnership with Fairlight,” Ron Partridge, President. said. “Fairlight is a recognized name in the broadcasting industry and to work alongside them supports our vision of providing our customers across all markets with innovative solutions and advanced technologies.”

Being based on a normal TFT display, the panel can be driven by a range of different video sources, such as HDMI or DVI.
