The Avid Euphonix MC Transport is a compact media controller for use with both audio and video applications. Loaded with powerful features that help speed up and enhance creative work, the controller features an ultra-high resolution optical jog wheel and shuttle ring, ergonomic transport controls, programmable Soft Keys and integrated numeric key pad.
The controller uses a 100Mbs Ethernet EuCon connection to control audio/video applications running on Mac OS X based computers. EuCon is a high-speed communication protocol and enables control of virtually every application feature with EuCon aware software. The control surface also supports the HUI and Mackie Control protocols, but with a slightly diminished level of integration.
Where multiple applications are open on a computer, the MC Transport automatically detects which application is in the foreground and sets all controls to match that software. The unit is designed to work standalone or as part of a system with up to a single MC Control and 4 MC Mix units for complete audio mixing control with 36 faders. MC Transport, MC Control and MC Mix units clip together or can be situated anywhere on a network, as each has its own Ethernet connection.
