Video recording and mixing can be achieved by connecting the MK20RC remote to a video switcher such as the AV800HD, while audio mixing and speaker control can be handled by an Asystems digital matrix processor or digital matrix amplifier, such as the DMP8800 or DMA8825. With a single monitor screen, you have a complete audio-video solution.
