Multi Purpose Rack Controller

The C90R is a multi purpose rack controller with a design that doesn’t declare a marriage with a particular device or use case! This is essentially enabled by the use of OLED legended buttons with crisp information rich displays telling you exactly what function is assigned to the button or what value the parameter under adjustment has. Use it for ATEM, HyperDecks, SmartScopes, vMix and more!


This all purpose rack controller provides an unparallelled flexibility thanks to UniSketch OS and hi-resolution OLED legends. The displays provides information about button functionality and can serve as source labels as well.

(Due to the milling process, minor surface inconsistencies may occur on the enclosure)

C90R Features

  • 10 large RGB buttons with OLED display
  • 10 RGB utility buttons
  • Two encoders with OLED display
  • PoE included
  • Option: GPIO
  • UniSketch web interface for extensive configuration

Physical Specifications

  • Enclosure Size 1U High, Full rack width, 9 cm deep
  • Weight 0.795 kg

The combination of OLED legends and UniSketch OS creates a strong platform for configuring the C90R to be a multi purpose rack controller, yet simplifies operation as the displays provides information about functionality. With the utility buttons you can switch between different "states" on the controller each with its own set of functionality for the main OLED legended buttons. 

Preview/Program Selection
AUX Control

Use the display as source labels for easy identification of switcher sources. The labels are updated dynamically, so if you rearrange or rename sources in ATEM, vMix etc. the displays are updated automatically.

If you configure functions to be something like AUX control or routing control, naming and routing will be reflected in the displays as well.

Run Macros
Select Stills

The naming of Macros is reflected in the displays and you can dedicate button functionality to Play, Stop, Toggle or Hold Down for Macro control.

If a button is configured for selection of Media Player Stills the naming of the filename uploaded to the media pool will be reflected. This is a great feature for selecting lower thirds or graphics for your show.

The flexibility and versatility of UniSketch OS extends to the two encoder knobs with displays which are great for creating small menus. Functions put here are for controlling the overall layout of the controller or for using functions where the ability to cycle between a number of options are desirable.

The web interface provide a graphical representation of the C90R. By pressing on any of the buttons, encoders or the GPIO module (not shown in picture), the menu jump to the configuration for that particular control element.

To learn more about the GPIO possibilities visit the ETH-GPI Link product page.

Encoder Menu

The integrated encoder menu is a particular strong interface component on the C90R and it's very easy to configure. Among many options you can configure it to control AUX channels, you can select content from the media pool, and it will even display the filename of the available files! Or maybe you wanna set Transition Style and Transition Rate. Just add those parameters in the encoder menu configuration in the web interface, save, reboot and the menu have been configured. No need to install additional software.

Device Settings

The C90R Rack Controller runs UniSketch which allows you to configure the device for multiple hardware devices such as the ATEM Switcher, HyperDeck, SmartScopes, VideoHubs, AJA KUMO Routers, vMix and more. You can even configure the unit to control multiple hardware devices at the same time. The microprocessor (SKAARDUINO Due) inside the C90R controller allows connections to a maximum number of 8 devices. Check out the Device Cores overview to learn more about the devices we support.

GPIO option. The controller will not have this module, if this option is not selected.

GPIO

With the GPIO option you get 2x8 channel I/O with the DB-25 connector. The DB-25 connector configuration is similar to the BlackMagic Design GPI & Tally Interface. Use the GPO to provide tally and the GPI to trigger a action with a foot pedal, a switch or something similar. The behaviour of the GPIO can be fully controlled from the UniSketch web interface. The GPIO module will not be fitted, if this option is not selected.

Visit the ETH-GPI Link product page to learn more about the possibilities the GPIO module provides.
