PLUG-N-PLAY PRODUCTION SWITCHER WITH AUDIO FOR LIVE EVENT AND PRODUCTION

Live event production and streaming continues to grow and the demand for more features requires a sophisticated feature set. The V-60HD simplifies your set-ups and combines the best of both worlds that includes SDI inputs for camera sources and scaled HDMI inputs for data, computer, tablet and other video sources. The combination of powerful audio features that include multi-channel embedded audio, XLR and RCA analog inputs, de-embedded audio from digital SDI or HDMI sources plus a variety of video connections with a Program and Aux Bus makes the V-60HD ideal for a variety of live event production and streaming applications.


Professional user interface

Professional broadcast cross point buttons with PGM/PST LED color indicators. Rugged T-Bar, DSK quick edit knobs for key level and gain. Two dedicated PinP and Split buttons with knobs for center framing of Split and PinP placement. Change transition type using either mix or two preset wipe buttons with dedicated transition dissolve time knob. Front panel 3-inch LCD display with quick access menu navigation to adjust switcher parameters.


Video composition

The V-60HD includes a DSK (downstream keyer), Picture-in-Picture (PinP), Split composition effects ideal for creating news style broadcasts and corporate presentations. PinP window shapes include rectangle, circle, heart and diamond patterns to add a special touch to special events. Cropping of PinP and adjusting of SPLIT center portion (Ver.2.0) are suitable for composition of vertically long screen of smart phone. 
The DSK can be used for overlaying titles, song lyrics, logos or graphics coming from the video sources with up to three layers of composition. The DSK supports both Luminance Keying (Black/White) and Chroma Keying (Blue/Green) for compositing two video sources plus the additional layer of PinP plus your background video ensuring creative live production environments.

AUX bus

Live streams, HD recording, and confidence monitors often have different visual needs from the main program output. Switch any of the connected input sources to any of the four SDI or HDMI outputs without affecting the main PGM destination. AUX Linked PGM enables AUX output to synchronize with the Program (PGM) output.

Multi-view output

V-60HD can preview all six video inputs and two still images, PGM and PVW to a single preview monitor via the Multi-view output. In addition, you can display the menu on the Multi-view display, so you make setting changes without changing your focus from the preview display. From Ver.2.0, exchanging PGM and PVW window and editing label name of IN1 to 6 are possible


Auto mixing

The included Auto-Mixing function ensures the correct mix for multiple panel participants at conferences by automatically adjusting levels across multiple audio sources. A priority weighting assignment that is channel specific can be set giving the moderator or priority audio channel a higher volume level while using the Auto-Mixing function allowing the operator to focus on video switching and production.


Multi PTZ & Remote Camera Control

When LAN based PTZ cameras are called into action, take control using the V-60HD or powerful RCS. Seamlessly integrate JVC, Panasonic, Sony, PTZOPtics, Avonic and VISCA compatible professional pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) robotic cameras to streamline workflow without the need for a dedicated controller. For a gaming-like experience, pick up a USB gamepad and conquer a team of PTZ cameras. Instincts will guide the way as cameras Pan, Tilt and Zoom effortlessly on the action.

The RCS can connect to certain Canon handheld camcorders via LAN connection. Start & stop recording and tally light is supported.
