"Master Control is an amazing addition to any broadcast. It provides the missing link for fast-paced, intensive productions, by enabling users to program macros to reliably reproduce complex events that would be impossible to do manually. For news, sports or really anything else, I wouldn't want to switch a show without one anymore." - Kris Gurrad, ABC/KATU-TV
Master Control is a customizable modular tablet system for controlling devices and software of various kinds. It integrates our time proven technologies, relied upon by industry leaders, to provide complex macro based control of multiple devices simultaneously with the simplicity of single keypresses. Do things you only dreamed about until now. It revolutionizes workflow and introduces exciting new functionality and ease of use for operators.

Intuitive touch based interface can be customized to your exact needs. Create and save multiple layouts tailored for different projects and producers.
Powerful step/time macros execute a series of complex steps with a single touch, timed exactly to your production's needs. Increase productivity and eliminate operator error by reducing complicated tasks to the touch of a single button. Control one or more modules all from the same macro.
The compact footprint of Master Control fits into any studio or location production. Wireless networking provides portability and additional flexibility.
Expandable design allows operators to customize Master Control to operate a myriad of devices and software. Choose only the modules you want and easily add new ones as they become available through the built-in add-on store.
Multiple Master Control units can operate together. Tasks can be shared among multiple simultaneous operators. Get interactive with your projects by having one Master Control signal and control another.
Identically control two or more of the same module automatically.
Leading broadcasters, sports, media, and other organizations rely on our flexible software and robust technology every day. We make it easier for them to add creative polish to their productions, and be on time - every time.
