The MC-20PRO/M will come pre-configured with selected key maps for Apple's Final Cut Studio/Final Cut Express and easily connects to the USB port on the Mac without the need for software drivers or complicated installation procedures. For those who want to re-program the keys and jog/shuttle assignments, FutureVideo includes its innovative KeyAssigner software. This software integrates MC-20PRO/M key mapping with easy labeling for the 22 assignable keys and Jog/shuttle. The KeyAssigner program runs under Windows 2000/XP on either a PC or a Mac with a compatible virtual machine environment.
The MC-20PRO/M capabilities extend beyond computer-based media systems. Thanks to its EditLink port, Media Commander MC-20PRO/M connects with FutureVideo's MC-100 modules to directly control a network of up to 16 VCRs, including professional decks with RS-422/RS-232 9 pin connectors as well as camcorders and industrial VCRs equipped with LANC or 5-pin edit control ports. In this configuration, both Digital Audio Tape Recorders and selected DVD recorders can also be controlled.
