Panasonic AV-HS410, professional video switcher. Like its predecessor the AV-HS400A, the new AVHS410 is a compact, all-in-one 19 type rack-size 1 ME live video mixer that is only 19 inches wide but provides in its standard configuration nine signal inputs, expandable with option boards to a maximum of 13 signal inputs (HD/SD switchable). The 7 inch color LCD panel displays settings in an easy-to-read format, and ease-of-use is further enhanced by the new memory preview function, an improved multi-view function and a simple key layout optimized for live broadcasts. Excellent expandability is provided by optional board slots enabling support for a variety of input signals, including 3D cameras, and by the provision of a Software Development Kit (SDK) that makes it possible to add software-based functions.
In its standard configuration, the AVHS410 supports HD and SD multi-format signals and the system frequency is switchable among 60 Hz, 50 Hz, and 24 Hz, enabling operation and digital cinema control worldwide. Eight SDI (HD/SD) inputs and one DVI-D input are provided as standard. By installing optional boards in the two available slots, the number of inputs can be increased to a maximum of 13 (if input boards are installed). Alternately, output boards can be installed to enable a maximum of 10 outputs. In addition, all input channels feature a built-in frame synchronizer, and there are up-converters for four channels and video processing circuits for eight channels. Five HD/SD SDI outputs and one DVI-D output are provided in the standard configuration. In addition, there are four Aux busses, and Aux 1 comes with a mix transition function. In combination with mix effects (ME), the AV-HS410 Panasonic supports a wide variety of operation scenarios.
