V-1200HD Multi-Format Video Switcher
Hybrid Engine 2 M/E Switcher and Processor for Broadcast and Live Events
A comprehensive and flexible multi-format video switcher giving you complete control of video sources, key layers and mixing engine configurations. The V-1200HD introduces a unique flexible hybrid engine with 4:2:2 broadcast switcher and 4:4:4 live event switcher. In addition to powerful video capabilities, the V-1200HD also has a built-in 16-channel audio mixer.
- 10 SDI and 4 HDMI inputs, and 6 SDI and 2 HDMI outputs
- 4:2:2/4:4:4 hybrid engine
- The 4:2:2/10-bit processor is 2 M/E switcher that is able to switch 2 M/E, 1.5 M/E, and 1 M/E.
- The 4:4:4/10-bit multi-format processor supports live presentation, split-screen, and matrix output.
- 4K switching mode
- Up to 92 Inputs/Outputs 16-channel audio mixer
- Control of up to 4 remote cameras
- Optional control surface with T-bar and dual displays.
- All switcher functions can be operated from a computer using remote control software, V-1200HD RCS
- Input/output expandable via expansion slots
The 4:2:2 engine's variety of M/E modes allows for more creative freedom.
2 M/E Mode
This provides a standard 2 M/E operation style. Two keyers can be used with each M/E. Keyer priority can also be assigned and changed. Not only is re-entry of the video source from M/E 1 to M/E 2 possible, but so is reverse re-entry from M/E 2 to M/E 1. Each of the two M/Es can be output independently allowing for applications such as simultaneous transmission of captions in two different languages.
1.5 M/E Mode
This is the highest-performance operation style, capable of using PGM/PST rows as the final stage in addition to 1 M/E. All four keyers can be used in 1 M/E. You can freely change the priority of each keyer, and even copy keyers. This mode enables complex mixing operations such as a video source plus 4-layers of composition and transition functions to another single video source.
1 M/E Mode
This is a simple operation style using 1 M/E + 4 keys. In addition to using PGM/PST rows on the main line, you can use two AUX buses. This mode allows discrete video feeds to be switched and routed to additional outputs making the V-1200HD the ideal primary switcher for a number of broadcast and live performance applications.
4K Switching Mode (future upgrade)
This functions as a 4K/60p routing switcher by combining four SDI inputs or outputs to achieve a single 4K source. Installing an XI-SDI SDI expansion card enables 4K routing of up to three inputs and two outputs.
* 4K HDMI input/output is not supported.
* M/Es and keyers cannot be used.
4:4:4 Multi-Format Processor
There are two scalers between the 4:2:2 engine and the 4:4:4 engine, and two scalers between HDMI IN 3 and 4 and the 4:4:4 engine.
These enable switching, self key composition, and matrix output. When using HDMI direct in and out, all processing is done using 4:4:4 10-bit that supports RGB and computer signals.
An innovative and flexible system designed to easily realize your full creative potential.
A dedicated V-1200HDR controller provides fast and accurate operation. Dual touch monitors provide quick and easy operation.
All the functionality required for operation of a high-end switcher, in an efficient compact size.
