Model Description:
TDC-100 Disk Controller

Model Details

The Lance Design TDC-100 Disk Controller is designed to integrate general-purpose DDRs, such as the Tek Profile, Fast Forward Omega, EVS, Accom and others into the live production environment by interfacing to the production switcher via the P-Bus II protocol.
This protocol is supported by Grass Valley, Sony, Ross, Philips, and other major production switchers, and provides for automatic recall of TDC registers in response to EMEM recalls.This allows the disk playbacks to be a tightly-integrated part of switcher effects.The four control channels of the controller can be used for any combination of key, fill, background loop or other playbacks, with channels controlled independently, slaved together in key/fill pairs, or any other combination.GPI control is also available, should that be required.

This controller has gained wide acceptance by the top network and freelance TDs, and is used by ABC, CBC, CBS, CNN, ESPN, NBC, FOX, TBS/TNT, and many other major broadcasters.It is very easy to use, compact, and like all Lance Design products, designed with the ruggedness and reliability required for professional location broadcast use.
