Event Master E2 / S3 and EX have standard, finished and stocked configurations. But as its a scalable and modular system its also offered in BTO, Built To Order configurations. From a single chassis with 2 cards up to 8 chassis with every card included makes Event Master the most scalable and I/O dense Screen Management in the world. The S3 offer all features and quality of the E2 but with a lower total capacity. Whether you need several single units with a special config of I/O or a system with a massive routing and scaling capacity you can use the Built To Order process to get what you prefer. Uniquely build a system over time that does not require re-install or even re-programming as only the added parts need configuration and programming in general.

Use the fiber links up to 300m distance between units to distribute high-end video with no extra latency or compression degradation. Extend a full chassis or use the EX chassis to extend up to six 4K outputs or up to 5 4K inputs. All the normal high standards of redundant power, 12Bit 4:4:4 processing and I/O, Genlock, down to 15mS latency from the E2 and fixed configurations are available as it’s the same hardware and software.

Supported by no less than three APIs the Event Master system can be integrated with popular, if not all control systems on the market. A flexible control system is included and allow commands sent to third party devices over network for simple and integrated integration.

System design support is available for multi-unit systems worldwide via Barco Partners connection with Barco Product Specialists.
