The AV-HS450NJ** HD/SD video switcher offers a greater value than any other in its class. The two-rack-sized HS450NJ switcher comes standard with 16 HD/SD-SDI inputs (expandable to 20 with optional I/O boards); four HD/SD-SDI outputs and two DVI-D outputs. The switcher incorporates full 10-bit HD processing for maximum picture quality; and accepts optional boards for additional up-conversion; down-conversion and scaling of many video formats. This high-performance switcher is a flexible; economical solution for mid-size studios; mobile vehicles and mobile production systems.
The HS450NJ’s built-in dual-display Multi-Viewer lets you display up to 20 different images on two monitors (up to 16 on one screen); eliminating the need for a rack full of expensive monitors. Additional standard features include four independent AUX busses; up-conversion on 4 inputs and full color correction on 8 others; dual Picture-In-Picture display; two downstream keyers; a very high-quality chroma key; dual 3D DVE’s; shot and PiP memories; and much more.
