The Video Management Center VMC-1 Eagle from Dallmeier electronic GmbH & Co. of Regensburg, Germany, is a modular, flexible structure for controlling video. The individual components (keypad, joystick, and jog-shuttle) can be positioned according to individual preferences and are therefore equally suitable for right- and left-handed users. It is also possible to use the individual components as programmable standalone devices. The configuration of the control keys directly around the joystick or jog-shuttle helps users find their way through the operations. Many control keys can be customized, allowing the operator to tailor the unit to personal preferences.
