DK-Technologies Launches A Remote For Its Award Winning PT0760M HD/SD Multi-Channel Video Waveform Monitor

DK-Technologies will be attending this year’s IBC Convention with an exciting new addition to its award winning PT0760M HD/SD Multi-channel Video Waveform Monitor.

The PT0760-R is a remote unit that allows engineers to access the facilities of the PT0760M from an entirely different location. With this unit in place, an engineer on location can see exactly the same audio and video display as the engineer in the Master Control Room. Engineers using the remote can independently access all the facilities of the PT0760M without interrupting the use at the master location.

DK’s new remote offers the same high quality display as the PT0760M and gives users access to a set of soft keys that replicate those on the main unit. Both the PT0760M and the PT0760-R display can be independently controlled, allowing for either identical or individual display of video and/or audio signals at both locations.
