1RU Remote Aux Panel Operation

The 1RU Remote Aux Panels provide remote control, or monitoring, capability over one, or more, of the Aux Buses on the switcher. These panels are typically located close to the destination device that they route their sources to. Video does not flow through these panels, instead, the 1RU Remote Aux Panel interfaces with the switcher to control the outputs of the Aux Bus.

In addition to crosspoint buttons, all 1RU Remote Aux Panels include dedicated buttons for Program, MEs, and Clean Feed.

All 1RU Remote Aux Panels include an on-air Tally LED that indicates, when lit, that the Aux Bus controls a video signal that is part of the program output.

Source selection on the 1RU Remote Aux Panel is the same as selecting sources on a control panel row. The sources that are assigned to the source buttons depend on the Bus Map that has been assigned to the Aux Bus the 1RU Remote Aux Panel is controlling. The 1RU Remote Aux Panel can be assigned to any of either the first 10 or 12 Aux buses on the switcher. The Remote Aux Panel can be assigned to the first 12. To assign the 1RU Remote Aux Panel to a particular Aux bus, you must use the assign buttons on the 1RU Remote Aux Panel. These buttons are used in conjunction with each other to select a particular Aux bus.
