AV-HS6000
Key Features

34 inputs (SDI X32, DVI×2) and 16 SDI outputs; all inputs have built-in frame synchronizers

Simultaneous output in both 1080p and 1080i formats

4 independent MultiViewer displays; Single MultiViewer can display a maximum of 16 video sources

Equipped with real-time high-quality chroma keying that employs Primatte® algorithms / Standard 1 channel, expandable up to 4 channels

The switcher can be set by the 10,1-type touch-operated Menu Panel AV‑HS60C3G (optional) or by a PC monitor and USB mouse

The main unit is equipped with an abundance of inputs and outputs for great system integration that includes 32 SDI and 2 DVI inputs plus 16 SDI outputs. 4 DVEs per ME enable diverse transitions when producing creative video in demanding fast-paced situations. Three types of control panels can be used. C1 and C2 panels offer 24 XPT buttons and 4 pages and allow easy switching among 96 total crosspoints. The compact panel C4 is 30% shorter than the C1/C2 version and offers an easier integration into small studios and OB Vans.

 

The AV‑HS6000 is a 2ME model in the HS series that employs a newly designed, easy-to-use GUI Control Panel to support accurate switching. 

Even with its 3U compact size, the main unit is equipped with an abundance of inputs and outputs for great system integration that include 32 SDI and 2 DVI inputs plus 16 SDI outputs.  To top it all off, 4 DVEs per ME enable diverse transitions when producing creative video in demanding fast paced situations. 

Three types of control panels can be used. C1 and C2 panels offer 24 XPT buttons and 4 pages, and allow easy switching among 96 total crosspoints. Single or redundant power supply is selectable. New compact panel C4 is 30% shorter than the C1/C2 version and offers an easier integration into small studios and OB Vans. It offers 26 XPT buttons and 4 pages, for switching among 64 total crosspoints. In all cases, two multi-selection panels easily allow to recall wipes, event, shot, video and still memories.
