At SKAARHOJ we have worked our way to the international elite of broadcast control solutions, developing and manufacturing universal broadcast control panels for live Broadcast production, including RCPs for camera control, PTZ robotic camera controllers, vision mixing surfaces, router control panels, along with a number of auxiliary products
Our universal broadcast controllers give content producers an incredibly flexible hardware platform for their ever-changing control needs.
They get the exact form factor they need. They can integrate control of hardware or software in their infrastructure. They get crucial tactile control so their eyes can stay on the content creation that matters most to them.
SKAARHOJ ApS is a Danish limited liability company, located in the Copenhagen area. The history dates back to 2012 as a spin-off from e-learning solutions at the Technical University of Denmark.
SKAARHOJ was founded by chief designer, CEO and majority owner Kasper Skårhøj along with a small team.
The company has experienced organic growth “from the garage” to a small company over the years. An organizational gear shift in July 2018 has led to a doubling in turnover and staff over the last 12 months.
Today SKAARHOJ has a growing team of dedicated employees coming from more than 9 nationalities and working from five countries (Denmark, France, Austria, Turkey, USA).
SKAARHOJ products are designed and made in Denmark.
A key element in SKAARHOJs strategy of integrated control with third party systems is the partnerships with other manufacturers.
SKAARHOJ has significant ongoing projects with major companies like ARRI, Panasonic and JVC as well as informal collaboration with many more companies, such as AJA, NewTek, Vaddio, Softron, CuePilot, Ensemble Designs, Canon, RED, Agile, Marshall, Lumens, Bolin, Bird Dog, AIDA, Ross and PTZ Optics.
SKAARHOJ is an IABM silver member.
SKAARHOJ has a wide range of hardware products plus variants in its line-up. Each product is characterized by a unique form factor in terms of size and dimension as well as physical control points like buttons, knobs, fader handles and joysticks.
All products run the same extendable software platform, UniSketch OS, which supports so called device cores akin to apps for smartphones. Device cores represents control software for a specific broadcast device such as a camera, a video router, a vision mixer etc. The common software platform and the device cores is what makes the full range of products universal.
SKAARHOJ controllers appeal both to system integrators and broadcast engineers with a high interest in the core flexibility of the products, while at the same time mass market end-users can enjoy SKAARHOJ controllers as off-the-shelf commodities that work out of the box.
The latter is due to the growing set of default configurations that exist for every controller, so a customer with a specific and typical need for control of a given camera model can just select it on a list and load support into the product.
