NAB Sneak Peek: Burk Adds More Control

ARC systems see new features and applications

Burk Technology says it will highlight performance and operational enhancements across the breadth of its ARC product offerings at the NAB Show.

The flagship ARC Plus Touch will feature newly retooled firmware yielding increased overall system performance and a powerful platform for ongoing development, the company says. New management capabilities such as selectable front-panel lockout with security code and network upload of speech files add to an extensive list of monitoring and control features, and an array of touchscreen, Web, smartphone and telephone control interfaces. Existing, as well as new, ARC Plus Touch users will benefit from these enhancements, with firmware downloadable from the Burk website.

Users of the pre-Touch ARC Plus system can also benefit from firmware enhancements with the new “V3 for Free” upgrade, including updated Web and smartphone interfaces, advanced automatic actions and greater flexibility in email and SNMP alarm reporting.

New PlusConnect I/O units provide direct transmitter interfaces for the ARC Plus family of remote controls. The Nautel GV is added to the list of supported Nautel radio transmitters, including the V, NV, XR, VS and NVLT series. A new PlusConnect interface for the GatesAir Sigma UHF transmitter complements the list of supported GatesAir Z, ZXA, ZXB, 3DX, HPX and Flexiva radio transmitters.

This year, AutoPilot loses its 2010 suffix, a tribute to the many refinements made through the Burk Continuous Improvement Program. The expanded Burk booth will feature AutoPilot Custom Views streaming live from Greater Media Boston.

The ARC Solo remote control, introduced at the show last spring, will round out the Burk Technology offerings at NAB 2015. Powerful yet simple, the ARC Solo includes many of the features of the ARC Plus while offering the simplicity of a self-contained remote control unit. Telephone speech is built in, and 16 meters, status and relays are all available on the rear panel of the ARC Solo for a complete, single-unit remote control.
