The unit is a 2RU rackmount design with a built-in control panel, allowing operation of the switcher during setup or for emergency use. Also included is a large LCD screen that enables users to see programme output and change switcher settings via on-screen menus. 

On the control panel, Blackmagic Design says that the buttons are of the same premium type used on full-sized panels, and allow control of transitions, upstream/downstream keyers, media players and fade-to-black.
