The XCU (eXchangeable Control Unit) Base Station
Grass Valley XCU is quite unique with its patent-pending cradle which can be fitted into a pre-wired rack. Cradle would have a secure mechanical and electrical connection, allowing XCU base station to easily slide in and out whenever needed.
Every base station comes with one cradle, but nothing is stopping you from purchasing additional cradles which can be fitted in different locations like OB vans or studios and then transfer XCU to the required location.
