JL Cooper new product releases 2017
Announcing the arrival of these 3 new products from JL Cooper: The ion – Compact Switcher Panel, MCS6 – Media Control Station and Atlas GPI Smart Matrix.
ion – Compact Broadcast Switcher Panel
Compact Switcher Control Surface for ATEM and Developers
The “ion” is an even smaller hardware control panel for fast video switching in live production environments with Blackmagic Design ATEM. It’s a ideal tactile companion to the ATEM software and your laptop or desktop computer or use it stand-alone with ATEM, as a primary or secondary controller. Add ion rack ears and it’s ready to mount in just two rack spaces for mobile fly packs. It’s perfect for for mobile, sports, educational, corporate, computer, house of worship and other applications.
ion includes a host mode so that software developers can completely utilize it as a control surface for custom applications. In host mode, you can completely control the LCD display, button illumination and color and can determine how the controller will interact with your software.

Media Control Station
MCS6 is a modernized and updated version of our popular MCS3 Media Control Station with a compact new enclosure style. The familiar button layout and Jog/Shuttle is identical to the MCS3. It features professional transport buttons for Record, Play, Stop, Fast Forward and Rewind. It has 18 physical buttons for a variety of editing functions and the V/Stick Navigation Control. A precision, optically encoded jog wheel with a concentric shuttle ring lets you control audio or video effortlessly and with frame accuracy.
For developers the MCS6 USB is functionally identical to the MCS3 USB, but uses an updated FTDI USB Interface. Up-to-date FTDI drivers are available for Windows and Mac, meaning it’s easy to make your applications talk directly to the MCS6.
JLCooper mapping software support is for Mac only. Use and customize supplied keysets for advanced control of applications including Media Composer, Final Cut Pro X, Premiere Pro, Pro Tools, Logic, Nuendo and others, or make your own keyset for any application. This product is available in two models:
- MCS6 USB w/ Software for Mac Only
- MCS6 RS-422/9-Pin for Deck Control

Atlas GPI – Smart Matrix
GPI/Tally Programmable Crosspoint Switch Matrix and Logic Processor
Atlas GPI is Highly Programmable Crosspoint Smart Switch Matrix and Logic Processor. It provides a number of connections and processing options, making it the ideal solution for correcting GPI/Tally incompatibilities.
Atlas offers 24 TTL/CMOS compatible inputs with internal pull-ups to +5 volts and referenced to ground on 25 pin D-sub connectors. It also has 24 parallel, Opto-isolated inputs, on high density, removable, terminal block screw connectors.
The D-sub GPI Out connector has 24 TTL/ CMOS compatible outputs and there are 24 electrically isolated dry relay outputs on high density, removable, terminal block screw connectors. CMOS GPI outputs can deliver 0 to 5 volts at up to 6 mA and referenced to ground. Relay Outputs can handle up to 500 mA @ 200 VDC max. Opto-isolated inputs and Relay outputs use high quality removable terminal block connectors (pairs).
Interface options include CMOS In to CMOS Out, CMOS in to Relay Out, Opto-Isolator In to CMOS Out and Opto-Isolator In to Relay Out functionality.
Outputs can be programmed to use a boolean expression of input or inputs including functions AND, OR, and XOR, with inversion of inputs and/or outputs. Modification of output characteristics include inversion, delay (up to 999 minutes with millisecond resolution) and pulse (up to 999 minutes with millisecond resolution).
It’s ideal for broadcast television, streaming media networks, video editing facilities, news production, alert systems, monitor switching, audio/video/multimedia studios and more.
