Items similar to the FORA-MV-1620HS


The MV-1620HS is a compact (1RU) multi-viewer that accepts up to 16 channels of mixed HD/SD-SDI or analog composite signals for monitoring on one or two (option) screens. Full-featured yet economical, the unit offers a customizable window layout and displays audio levels, titles, and timers, etc.

Versatile Mixed-Source Environment
Supports mixed signals as required, from HD-SDI, SD-SDI, or analog composite sources. Asynchronous input is also supported. The viewer accepts an array of formats and frame rates including NTSC, PAL, 1080/59.94i, 1080/23.98PsF and 1080/50i.

HD Output of Source Signals
Sources can be displayed on one or two (option) screens, with HDMI and SDI interfaces available for both screens to support HD monitoring.

Layout Manager
Includes a Windows application for managing the layout. Customize the layout on a computer by registering or changing layout patterns, adjusting title display, and configuring other settings as needed. Store up to 16 layout patterns on the viewer. Saved layouts can be applied directly from the front panel control.

Video Streaming
In addition to computer-based layout management, you can also stream video from the viewer over Ethernet. The streaming video can be used for additional local computer display or for remote monitoring.LiveViewer_Preview
