The XS-1HD is ideal for supporting live event productions that involve a variety of video signals. A high quality scaler is provided on each input, allowing for fast setup. At only the width of a 13" laptop computer, the XS-1HD allows realtime operation in even the most space-limited working environments.
The XS-1HD can switch video from up to four sources such as cameras, computers, or media players, and freely assign them to LCD displays or projectors. A built-in scaler on each input means that the position or zoom can be adjusted even if the video signals being input have different formats. Since an EDID emulator is built-in, the correct resolution will be sent from computers to the switcher. You can instantly change the what is being sent to any display by recalling previously-saved preset memories as the event progresses or when appropriate for the situation.
The built-in scalers and multiple operation modes make it ideal for use in event spaces since it handles ever changing input source types and resolutions and adapts to different output destination requirements easily. HDCP compliance makes it indispensable when clients want to playback HDCP-protected HDMI signals from sources such as Blu-ray or smartphones. Still images can be loaded from USB and are great for convenient displaying logos.
Even with its compact footprint, the XS-1HD lets you operate its powerful functions using only the operation panel. Since HDMI input/output and the controls are integrated into a single unit, it can be used in a variety of situations such as on a small desk or podium, or on a media cart.
The XS-1HD provides three screen modes for a variety of applications.In addition to the matrix switcher mode, there's a Switcher mode that lets you use PinP or key-compositing, dissolve transitions and provides a multi-view output, and a Split mode that can display up to three PinP images.
