HD switcher with 16 SDI inputs, 4 SDI outputs, 2 DVI outputs, and Dual-screen MultiViewer as standard equipment.
This 1M/E live switcher has a separate mainframe and control panel, and comes standard with 16 SDI inputs, four SDI outputs, and two DVI outputs. It also features a variety of standard effect functions, including luminance and chroma keying, two DSK channels, two P-in-P buses, and two DVE channels. Ideal for medium-scale, multi-camera, on-air transmission and recording for broadcast studios, OB vans and image production applications. Addition of the optional AV-HS04M7D 3D SDI Output Board also enables 3D compatibility for switching effects such as wipes and mixes. And it features a number of display functions for 3D camera assist use.
16 Standard Inputs/Six Standard Outputs(Max. 20 Inputs/10 Outputs)
The AV-HS450 comes standard with 16 SDI (HD/SD) inputs and six outputs (four SDI (HD/SD) and two DVI-D). Two expansion slots accommodate either input or output optional boards, providing a maximum of 20 inputs,*1 and 10 outputs.*2
*1: When using two AV-HS04M1, M2, M6, or M8 Input Boards.
*2: When using two AV-HS04M4 or M7 Output Boards.
Built-in Frame Synchronizer for All Input Channels
All standard input channels feature a built-in frame synchronizer for use in switching unsynchronized video signals. A gen-lock function also supports synchronizing systems based on external sync signals (black burst or tri-level).
Up-Converter, Dot by Dot and Video Processing
The AV-HS450 is equipped with an SD/HD up-converter function for four standard inputs, and a dot by dot function for 16 inputs. Dot by dot input can be used for P-in-P display of HD images from SD footage without degradation. A video processing function with color correction is also provided for eight inputs.
Primatte High-Quality Chroma Key
Primatte High-Quality Chroma KeyLinear, luminance and chroma keying are provided. Chroma keying employs the Primatte algorithm, which is widely used as a plug-in for nonlinear editors. The same excellent Primatte image quality that is used worldwide for movies, TV programs, music videos and commercials is achieved by the AV-HS450's real-time processing. Superior blue-spill processing naturally combines translucent objects, such as thin cloth and glass, with background colors. Extremely fine objects, such as individual strands of hair, are faithfully reproduced. Two DSK channels are also provided to add borders, shadows, and other edge effects.
