Multi- Format Production Switcher Processor

Pricing available upon request


The MVS8000X Multiformat Switcher Processor with 3D capability and 3Gbps 1080/60p The MVS-8000X's new processing engine means more M/Es, more keyers and more format converters, so you can do much more on-board, all in 1080p, without having to tie-in external devices. Multiple formats and outputs are at the heart of our design philosophy and the MVS-8000X makes all of this possible out of one processor frame. The MVS-8000X’s processing unit is completely redesigned, with a new internal architecture, more I/O and extensive configurability.Flexible system size. Completely scaleable and expandable Integrated Resizer. Each keyer has a resizer that is standard which makes the creation and manipulation of tiles and other DVE effects easy. Working natively in 1080p means that interlace artefacts are a thing of the past, and that keying, DVE and subsequent stages are cleaner, maintaining the value in your source material.
