"Barco and Utah Scientific [have] for many years have provided complementary products," said Tom Harmon, president and CEO of Utah Scientific, in a statement. "By leveraging the strengths of both companies, we can offer our customers an integrated, cost-effective solution packed with industry-leading features."

"Utah Scientific and Barco have a history of working together successfully on behalf of our customers," said Jim Durant, market manager of broadcast for Barco North America, in a statement. "This agreement enables us to provide them with a combination of two best-of-breed, tightly integrated products: a state-of-the-art multiviewer and a top-of-the-line router."

Barco's 16-channel SMV-116 is a compact, high-resolution multiviewer that includes such standard features as 16 auto-sensing Composite, SD, and HD (3G) inputs, and DVI-I video inputs (up to 1080p) for displaying schedules or computer status information.

Utah Scientific routing switchers include range of analog, digital, and HDTV systems with integrated high-density frame sizes from 8x8 to 1056x1056, including the 144 frame in 9 RU, 288 frame in 16 RU, and 528 frame in 20 RU–all with 3G HD capability.
