The Panasonic AV-HS450N is a 16+ input HD/SD-SDI Switcher with Dual-Screen Multiviewer Display. The two-rack sized switcher comes equipped with 16 HD/SD-SDI inputs and four HD/SD-SDI outputs, along with two DVI-D outputs. The switcher"s sophisticated full 10-bit HD processor produces unmatched image quality. When combined with optional boards, the switcher can be customized for almost any studio environment, with features ranging from up/down conversion to video scaling.
The system can be configured to have up to 20 inputs with an optional expansion board. All inputs can be displayed on two monitors, reducing cost and saving space. Additional features include four AUX busses, up-conversion, full color correction, dual Picture-in-Picture display, two downstream keyers, a chroma keyer, two 3D DVE"s, and much more. The AV-HS450N is a flexible, cost-effective solution for mid-size studios, vehicles, and mobile production systems.
Built-in dual-display multiviewer lets you display up to 20 different images on two monitors; up to 16 on one screen.
Multiviewer windows can be assigned to any output and offer Preview and Program tally Indicators.
