New production switcher with integrated camera controller and multiviewer capabilities
MINNEAPOLIS, MN (May 18, 2011) – ProductionVIEW™ HD MV offers cutting-edge processor technology to the existing ProductionVIEW HD, with the addition of multiviewer capabilities and digital inputs/outputs. Combined with the new TeleTouch™ Multiviewer Touch Screens, you can easily switch all live feeds and create up to 12 “video thumbnails” of preset shots just by touching the monitor. The “video thumbnails” provide an easy way to identify and recall preset camera positions on a per-input basis in the preview window.
“Our customers love the ProductionVIEW HD’s easy-to-use, all-in-one design that integrates camera control, video mixing and broadcast quality effects,” says President of Vaddio, Rob Sheeley. “The new ProductionVIEW HD MV, with it’s next-generation processor technology, auto-sensing digital inputs and outputs, and integrated multiviewer give our customers a lot more to love. In addition to the new system architecture, we have added a new optional Touch Screen Multiviewer Control Monitor that makes our system even easier to use.”
ProductionVIEW HD MV
ProductionVIEW HD MV is a 6 x 2 multi-format, seamless video mixer that also provides two discrete outputs for dual bus program feeds (two independent 6 x 1 mixers). Input signals include analog HD YPbPr video, RGBHV, SD (Y/C and CVBS), and Input 6 provides a DVI-I input for RGBHV, DVI-D and HDMI. The Program and Preview outputs have both analog (YPbPr, RGBHV, Y/C & CVBS) and digital (DVI-D & HDMI) outputs. HD resolutions up to 1080p/60fps are supported.
Camera control features include a broadcast-style 3-axis/1-button Hall Effect Joystick with twist handle zoom control, as well as separate Pan, Tilt and Speed control knobs. There are six discrete auto-sensing RS-232 camera control ports that are compatible with Vaddio, Sony®, Panasonic® and Canon® PTZ Cameras (see manual for a complete list of compatible PTZ cameras). A wide variety of transitions including cuts, dissolves and wipes can be achieved through user-selectable buttons built into the control surface. The Lower Screen Graphic (LSG) function allows users to overlay computer graphics onto the program video output.
TeleTouch Multiviewer Touch Screen Monitors
The new optional TeleTouch Multiviewer Touch Screen Control Monitors allow you to easily see and switch all live video feeds and create “video thumbnails” with finger-touch control. The multiviewer can be configured to display up to six input windows and two larger “Preview” and “Program” windows with red and green tally window borders. The Preview output is configurable for analog and digital outputs and allows for either standard preview outputs or the multiviewer output.
