Panasonic Announces the AV-HS400 Compact Eight-Input, Multi-Format Live Switcher (2/10/2007)
Following the success of the AV-HS300, Panasonic announces the AV-HS400, a compact multi-format, eight-input/eight-output video switcher for live events, cable show production, event staging, corporate videos, distance learning, seminars, conferences, and more. This powerful switcher will give productions more flexibility and features than ever before available in such a compact and cost-effective unit.
Panasonic's new HD/SD mixed-format switcher works with inputs from most video sources as well as PCs, and it outputs to projectors, plasma, LCD, LED dot matrix, or CRT displays. It is useful in any environment in which content needs immediate viewing live on multiple platforms or via transmission. The AV-HS400 switcher makes this possible with mixed SD and HD content at the same time.
The AV-HS400 has a built-in, 10-bit, eight-channel frame synchronizer that eliminates the need to genlock when switching between cameras or asynchronous sources, and it produces a single stream of continuous content for any video production application.
The new Panasonic switcher includes four video inputs and outputs as standard, with an option for up to eight inputs and outputs. These interfaces are assignable as PGM, PVW, AUX, multi-screen, and keyout.
Supporting all major HD/SD formats as well as most digital and analog interfaces, the AV-HS400 incorporates its own upconverter, supported by optional input boards, to enable the mix of both SD and HD content.
More features include an intuitive switch layout, quick preset functions visible on LCD or OSD (on-screen display), tally output, and RS-422 control that is GVG-protocol compatible.
Key features of the new Panasonic AV-HS400 video switcher include
multi-screen preview of program/preview/inputs for monitoring by a single monitor; * three types of multi-screen (four, eight, and 10 split-image) with a selectable image for each split window; * DVI inputs up to SXGA and outputs up to WUXGA (1920 x 1200); * 12 types of wipe pattern, 10 types of squeeze, eight types of slide effects, and 12 types of 3-D (DVE); * linear key, luminance key, chroma key, and downstream key; * picture in picture; * SD card image insertion into video content.
The AV-HS400 will be available in December 2007.
