The Grass Valley® Newton™ modular control system offers multi-knob, Ethernet-based access to Grass Valley modular products. It lets you access the Gecko™, GeckoFlex™, and Kameleon™ modular products in a particular signal path—even if they're in different racks or facilities. You can adjust module parameters from a rack-mounted Newton control panel or a software control panel running on a standard Windows PC. There's even a button for locking out the control panel to prevent accidental changes. The Newton system also includes the Grass Valley NetConfig™ software, which lets you assign IP addresses to Gecko, GeckoFlex, and Kameleon frames for easy network identification. The NetConfig application works with the Encore™ router control system and Grass Valley routers. With Encore, you can separate system-level configuration tasks from operational ones, minimizing the potential for on-air mistakes. And you can group modular products into a logical signal path that you can easily access.
