Pristine Video and Audio
  • End-to-end HD 1080i video pipeline, including effects and virtual sets
  • Video processing employs 32-bit floating-point precision, 4:4:4:4 sampling and component (YCbCrA) color (well beyond industry standard 10-bit)
  • Four-channel audio processed at 96kHz, 24-bit floating point
  • Extensive audio input/output flexibility including SDI-Embedded, AES/EBU, and XLR/phone connectors
  • All video inputs can be proc amped and keyed, including titles and DDRs
  • Integrated waveform/vectorscope
  • Individual processing controls for both Main and VGA outputs
  • Capture video or stills with support for full 4:2:2 up to 1920x1080 resolution
  • Next-generation interface design with key live production tools readily available, supported by quick access to configure each source
  • Full 64-bit native architecture

Virtual Switcher Inputs and Live Virtual Sets
  • Virtual Switcher inputs support multiple ‘mix/effects bus’-like preset compositions
  • Populate multiple virtual inputs from a single camera source (and switch between them)
  • Each source has Processing Amplifier, keying and alpha channel support
  • Layer two live video or CG sources (internal or supplied by network)
  • Independent zoom and pan controls for each source that make composition easy
  • Add a third source as a dedicated overlay channel with independent transitions
  • Optionally insert live video inputs into lifelike 3D live virtual sets with ease
  • Zoom the virtual camera smoothly and easily (manual or automatic control)
  • Presets provide quick convenient access to innumerable virtual input setups 
Production Flexibility

  • HD-SDI and HD component plus SD-SDI, component, Y/C and composite input/output
  • Freely intermix source resolutions and aspect ratios (including HD and SD video)
  • Simultaneous HD and SD video output
  • Network input supports computer screen and CG sources from external computers (input live Internet video-conferencing using a networked laptop that is running popular software)
  • Simple live streaming with Flash™ or Windows Media™
  • Capture live production and/or streaming output on 36 hours of internal storage
  • Genlock input for broadcast system integration supports bi-level and tri-level references
  • On-screen ISO monitoring for all switcher inputs (internal and external)
  • Enhanced secondary video output for projector or second monitor (up to WUXGA) offers varied displays including Program, Preview, Effects, all ISO sources, Scopes, and more
  • Dedicated upstream overlay with transitions with per source positioning, scaling, and color processing
  • Two additional downstream overlay channels with individual transitions, scaling, position, keying and alpha channel, and color processing
  • Sophisticated control system for transitions, automated playback, overlays and more
  • Next generation LiveMatteHD™ for incredibly clean real-time keying
  • Convenient user presets available throughout the application, including media player playlists, virtual inputs, and audio mixers
