MTD over Ethernet with IE module & Option M.


    • Network-based studio timer distribution
    • Up to six different timers/timezones
    • Utilizing existing Ethernet infrastructure
    • Configuration at any workspace
    • PoE (Power over Ethernet is supported)
    • Reads NTP as the real-time reference


    • MTD (Multi Time Display) is a studiotimer solution developed and designed by PLURA to deliver several features like
      1. Up countdown timers
      2. Down count timers 
      3. Difference timers
      4. Timezones via the userbits of the LTC.
    • With the newest option M for PLURAs IE ethernet module, MTD data isn’t bound to Timecode anymore and can be sent over local area network, so control units and displays can be used in a flexible and mobile way.  Only a network port is needed to have full studio timer access with a display or control unit.


    • The timer distribution via network can be used in versatile and user friendly ways:
      1. Control units and displays are usable in a mobile way.
      2. They can directly be installed in any place as a plug-and-play style.
      3. There’s no more a need for a circumstantial LTC distribution, 
      4. Accurate studio time can be displayed any WHERE. 
      5. Configuration can be done at any workspace in the studio.          
      6. Several devices I.D.s can be assigned with alias names and groups. 
      7. PoE (Power over Ethernet) supported, only a single CAT-5 cable is needed to hook up the hardware.
