Multi- Format Production Switcher Processor

Pricing available upon request


The MVS-7000X production switcher is Sony’s main production switcher model, and inherits powerful features from the MVS-8000X. It can be upgraded from standard-definition (SD) to an SD/HD multi-format configuration with the simple addition of optional software. Thus, users can start from SD and then, as required, upgrade to SD/HD multi-format. Also, thanks to a powerful Mix/Effect mode selection feature, the MVS-7000X can be configured to meet user requirements with the minimal purchase of a mix/effect board. Users can also install optional DME boards which offer visual effects of superb quality - equivalent to those of the MVE-9000 - with variations including Spot Lighting and Texture Lighting without needing any external devices. These user-oriented capabilities enable system configuration with a lower investment but without sacrificing quality. The MVS-7000X switcher supports excellent stereoscopic 3D production. For fantastic picture quality, it also supports 1080p/59.94/50 production with BZS-7560X Switcher Upgrade Software. This enables users to take full advantage of HD production with features such as transition and keyer. Other optional additions include the MKS-7470X DME Board Set and MKS-7471X DME Board with BZS-7560X/7561X for 3D program production. Dual-link signals can be handled as a single source, without specific settings for each link.
