youngmonkey is pleased to announce Master Control 2.0. Itís simply AMAZING and it's not just for TriCaster anymore!


One Touch Does It All and Much More...

"Master Control is an amazing addition to a TriCaster. It provides the missing link for fast-paced, intensive productions, by enabling users to program macros to reliably reproduce complex events that would be impossible to do manually. For news, sports or really anything else, I wouldn't want to switch a TriCaster show without one anymore." - Kris Gurrad, ABC/KATU-TV


WHAT IS IT?
------------

Master Control is a modular, customizable tablet system for controlling devices and software of various kinds. It integrates our time proven technologies, relied upon by industry leaders, to provide complex macro based control of multiple devices simultaneously with the simplicity of single keypresses. Do things you only dreamed about until now. It revolutionizes workflow and introduces exciting new functionality and ease of use for operators.
