MVS-6530 Series
Format conversion option

Format conversion option

This switcher has format conversion capability by adding an extra format converter board (MKS-6550). This option provides up-conversion and down-conversion between HD (1080i and 720p) and SD (480i and 576i), and cross-conversion between 1080i and 720p for both inputs and outputs. With this capability, there is no need for external format conversion. A variety of signal formats can be handled within the switcher system, which minimizes overall system cost.

The format convertor also works in frame delay mode which provides synchronization and up to 8 frames delay for up to eight input signals. This feature is useful for remote non-locked sources or for applications involving virtual studios where a compensatory delay is required.

 

New control panel for easy operability

The black matte panel is designed for easy operation in a fixed configuration. Experienced operators will feel comfortable with the design since it's based on the proven CCP style. Additionally, OLED source name displays and RGB color source buttons are included for optimal visibility and improved operability. The MVS-6530 switcher system features the ICP-6530 control panel.

Built-in DME processor

Built-in DME processor

The convenient built-in DME processor makes this switcher even easier to use. The processor offers the option of two channels of internal digital multi-effects (DME) with installation of the MKS-6570 DME board. This switcher supports brilliant non-linear effects as well as frequently used DME patterns. With this capability, the following effects can be performed: Digital SPARKLE Effects*, 3D Linear Transformation, Video Modify, Freeze, Light/Trail, Input/Output Effect, Digital SKETCH, Metal, and Glow.

* These non-linear effects are supported on a single channel.

 

Two 2.5D resizers per M/E bank

A powerful resizer function is provided that gives simple 2.5D DME effects for half the keyers. With adjustable parameters such as size, position, and aspect, as well as mosaic and defocus effects, this functionality is very useful for optimizing the on-screen composition. These effects can be created without the use of an optional DME, therefore, simplifying operations and minimizing system cost.

Two channel multi-viewer system

The MVS-6530 provides multi-viewer outputs directly from the main processor chassis. This reduces the need for expensive external multi-viewers. Each multi-viewer output can be set in either 10- or 4-way split operation, and signals are delegated to each separate pane accordingly. The multi-viewer also supports switcher name and border tally indicators.

Intelligent tally and powerful device control

Intelligent tally and powerful device control

Multiple on-air and recording tallies can easily be programmed in the switcher system, so that even complex tally requirements are accommodated.

The MVS-6530 switcher has integrated device control and do not require the use of an additional unit, simplifying system installation. Devices can be controlled on the same timeline as switcher events or as part of macro events. When integrating a Sony disk protocol or VDCP-controlled disk recorder into the production system, clip management is also possible, allowing different server clips to be recalled and played back as part of a switcher timeline or macro.

 

Color Correction on every input

With extensive color correction on-board, it's easy to fix badly set-up sources for a consistent-looking production.
