Pricing available upon request


The MVS-6530 switcher inherits an array of features and technologies from the renowned MVS-X switcher series, leveraging years of industry experience at the highest levels. The MVS-6530 is a 3ME switcher with 48 inputs and 32 outputs. It features 16 high performance keyers, resizers, color correction and multi-viewer outputs. Each keyer has its own auto-transition controls allowing users to insert or remove keys on an individual basis with independent wipes, DME wipes, and dissolves. For further flexibility, each keyer on every M/E also offers chroma-keying and color vector keying, eliminating restrictions of selectable key types. These fully-featured M/Es allow total interoperability of effects on all M/Es. The resizer function allows superb simple 2.5D DME effects to be supported through 8 out of 16 keyers. A variety of effects such as Mosaic and Defocus can also be applied to resized images. All these effects can be created without the use of an external DME, bringing great advantages for both simple operation and minimal system cost. The MVS-6530 switcher possess a rich feature set including a two-channel multi-viewer output, with a choice of 4, 10 or 16 pane display, saving space on additional monitoring plus offering an easier set up and overall cost reduction. Other features include an AUX transition capability enabling users to mix transitions using AUX outputs, and the ICP-6530 control panel which includes programmable color cross-point buttons ideal for grouping and high-visibility OLED source-name displays. These help the operator stay informed at all times of cross-point, button assignments and source type group.
