This wondrous steampunk contraption may looks like something out of an H.G. Wells time-travel story, but it’s actually modern broadcast video control system, concealed under the shell of a victorian-styled retro-mechanical facade.

Created by Hi Tech Systems, the Comptometer is a fully-functional broadcast controller for video mixing and editing software.

The intricately crafted controller was built using wood, brass, Bakelite, Nixie tubes, and other tschotchkes and even has some working mechanical components.

Not being a broadcast video expert, I’m not really sure how one would use this controller in the industry, maybe this video will give you some clue. Something about Grass Valley, Sony, Odetics and a gas turbine interchange – you figure it out.
