Dot.Box makes multichannel operation easy to implement, manage, and maintain at a low cost, say company officials. With the new addition, the package can accommodate a wider range of routing requirements and facilitate the addition of more master control channels.

"We have found that many of our customers are interested in taking advantage of the benefits associated with adding subchannels to their service offerings," said Tom Harmon, president and CEO of Utah Scientific, in a statement. "We developed the Dot.Box concept to enable broadcasters to order a single all-inclusive package with everything they need to begin to realize the rewards of multichannel operation."

The Dot.Box packages include a UTAH-400 HD/SD routing switcher with 32 inputs and 16 outputs, and two MC-400 master control processor boards with MCP-400 master control panels. The router incorporates dual power supplies and dual crosspoint/controller boards. The two MC-400 processors are housed in the router frame with access to all 32 sources, and also feature internal logo keying as well as external key signal inputs, automatic EAS message presentation, video frame buffers on the master control video inputs, and an independent MCP-400 physical control panel for each master control channel. Router control is managed by the SoftPanel-2 virtual control panel system, which allows the user to create and deploy virtual panels to meet control requirements.

The Dot.Box system comes with Utah Scientific's 10-year warranty.
