LIVE PRODUCTION : Event Production

Various video sources can be mixed seamlessly without
external video converters.

LIVE PRODUCTION : Studio Production

Text/Graphic from a PC/Mac can be composited on background video content. HD output is available for display, recording, or broadcasting and SD output is available for monitoring, live streaming or recording.

MULTI-SCREEN SOLUTIONS : Independent Outputs

Two independent outputs enable powerful multi-screen video productions.



*In DUAL Mode, PinP, Key, DSK, External Control are not available. Video transitions available are CUT and Fade In/Out.(Black is once inserted.)

MULTI-SCREEN SOLUTIONS : Multi-Screen With Edge Blending

Displays a single image across two screens. Edge Blending function enables seamless image



*At SPAN Mode, PinP, Key, DSK, External Control are not available. Video transitions available are CUT and Fade In/Out.(Black is once inserted.)

MULTI-SCREEN SOLUTIONS : DUAL Mode

Using the DUAL Mode, two video inputs can be switched individually. Switching the both inputs at same time is also possible. Preview monitoring of each output enables confident operation.



*In DUAL Mode, PinP, Key, DSK, External Control are not available. Video transitions available are CUT and Fade In/Out.(Black is once inserted.)

MULTI-SCREEN SOLUTIONS : SPLIT Mode

Using SPLIT Mode, two video inputs can be displayed on one display. This is useful for comparing two videos on a single screen.



*In SPLIT Mode, PinP, Key, DSK, External Control are not available. Video transitions available are CUT and Fade In/Out.(Black is once inserted.)

MULTI-ZOOM

Using the thru out connectors, one video input can be daisy-chained to multiple inputs. The scaler for each input can zoom into any position in the video image enabling a virtual multi-camera environment. This gives the appearance that you have additional cameras connected.


Monitor

High Resolution 8.5 inches LCD Monitor
The built-in high quality monitor provides the ability to preview each video source eliminating the need for external preview monitors. Additionally, menu functions and parameters can be on the built-in screen.


PVW (Preview) BUS enables previewing of the visual effect before PinP composition.
Menu setup is available with output monitoring.

3 Monitor Selections
Monitor sources can be selected from PGM (Program), PVM (Preview), and AUX (Auxiliary) bus.




Effects

PinP (Picture in Picture)
Two images can be combined in one video image using PinP function.



Key Composition
Enable Chroma/Luminance Key composition, including semi-translucent composition using Linear Key.



DSK (Downstream Keyer)
DSK function is suitable for compositing logos or text. Key source can be confirmed by PVW monitor.



Various Transition Effects
Includes Dissolves, NAM, and FAM mixing types. 4 types of wipe patterns are also included. FAM (Full Additive Mix) transition: Images will transition with the luminance level held steady.
NAM (Non-Additive Mix) transition: The two images will be compared, and the pixels that have a higher brightness level will be shown while the images are switched.
