  • Combine multiple Skaarhoj devices into one
  • OLED display
    OLED display with colour support allows you to display content on your Blue Pill. May it be parameters from your cameras and switchers or custom graphical content, Reactor will help you create your ideal visualization. Never lose your IP again!
  • Tally
    The LED light bar on the back of your Blue Pill can be configured to any colour and intensity. You can also configure this feedback based on your device parameters or custom conditions. Perfect for that extra tally light!
  • POE PORT - Ethernet plug
    Blue Pill, like the rest of our products, is powered over PoE. Single cable for data and power saves you from cable clutter.
  • USB
    [Data: in+out] / [Power: out]
    Blue Pill features a USB 2.0 port. This can be used for any third party frame-grabber in conjunction with our Frame Link application to create visual thumbnails for your panel. You can also hook up a hard-drive, keyboard, mouse and more to extend the functionality of your Blue Pill.
  • Micro USB
    [Data: in+out] / [Power: in+out]
    The Micro USB port on your Blue Pill is capable of powering your Blue Pill in situations where PoE is not accessible to you. It can also power external devices in cases where PoE is powering the Blue Pill. Additionally, it provides an option to program or reset the device through serial connection or read data from external devices.
  • Attach screw
    Blue Pill is born with two ¼”-20 UNC standard screw holes for easy mounting anywhere in your setup.
  • Strips hanger
    No screws? No problem! Blue Pill also comes with two slots for strips. 2.5 cm wide cutouts can be used to help you attach it anywhere! Strap it down, zip tie it, tape it, use cable binders
  • Reset and status LED
    Reset (left) + Status (right)
    These two holes are used for the reset button (left) and status LED (right).
    Status LED will show you whether the Blue Pill is powered up, booting and running. It can also be used to identify your Blue Pill using its web interface.
  • PoE
    Ethernet with PoE (IEEE802.3af)

Blue Pill enhances the UniSketch ecosystem by combining multiple controllers into a single seamless controller. For example, you can take a PTZ Pro and combine with a Frame Shot and have the Frame Shot show thumbnails for your preset recalls. The selected camera on the PTZ Pro will drive the preset selection on the Frame Shot because to Blue Pill they are essentially just one single panel.

Blue Pill talks to UniSketch panels via the Raw Panel device core on UniSketch. This device core has been around for a long time as a way for third party developers to interface with UniSketch controllers. With this road tested technology, Blue Pill simply takes control over the UniSketch panels and offers unprecedented possibilities that UniSketch could never do on its own. This includes:

  • Virtually unlimited SKAARHOJ panels combined (seamless modularity)
  • Virtually unlimited devices being integrated (cameras, switcher, routers, etc.)
  • New integrations not available on UniSketch (like new camera releases from Canon, RED, Panasonic etc., just for a start)
  • System provided features such as presets (macros / timelines), virtual triggers etc.
