    We bought this unit to begin DVD recording and webcasting almost 3 years ago and haven't had a moment's trouble with it. It provides silky smooth transitions for the 4 video inputs and a built-in audio mixer. It is capable of doing so much more, but is a workhorse that we have taken for on-the-fly two camera mixing too many events. Add a couple of cameras, an audio line from the sound board, and a 3 by 4-inch video monitor and you are up and running! You will double the price to buy ANYTHING else. This is an awesome, durable, entry-level (and then some) piece that I recommend all the time!

    This mixer is the worst piece of equipment that I've ever used in my life. In all of my 40 years of experience, I have to say color and the sliders on the mixer constantly fail. It always messes up on morning broadcasts and the quality of video is horrible. Color is never persistent, as everyday color is never on point. Do not buy this product as it is not worth [$], your better off getting a video mixer and a sound mixer than this ugly hybrid.

          I use this mixer in a research lab where we want to connect four cameras and use the PIP function.

          I own two of these mixers and both are defective. Specifically, only one of the two s-video ports works on both mixers. Therefore, you can only connect 3 cameras (not the advertised 4) to this mixer.

              I do legal video and from time to time the attorneys need to show documents to a witness on video and also so the jury at trial can see what the witness was looking at the time of his deposition.
              This Sima unit works great, picture in picture mode 3 sizes of PIP, mixes, wipes, and keys, great in SD. It does not HD.
              LOW COST and easy to use.

                The SFx-11 was bought simple multi-camera production recordings. Very user friendly and easy to setup. The only disadvantage is the 3rd and 4th input which only have s-video input. Otherwise the SFX-11 is as good as those cost more than double its price.

                  Comments about Sima SFX-11 Digital Video Mixer:

                  We use the board mostly as a glorified video feed switch for our main TV's at the front of our church sanctuary. I'm interested in the possibility of running that video feed to the computer with the supplied cables, but I haven't had a chance to do that yet. It was pretty easy to set up if you've messed around with others a little. I removed the old Videonics board and replaced it with this one within about an hour so it wasn't very difficult. My biggest complaint is that there is no memory to retain settings when you power off the board. The previous board we owned, which recently died, was higher end than we could afford again and more than we really needed. However, it stored all the changes in it's memory so we didn't have to reset all the video feed selections, transition, background, and effects settings every time. So as it is right now, I have to leave it on all the time because I'm not always there to set it up for other people and not everyone who helps is tech savvy enough to do so... even though it isn't that complicated once you have it figured out - it's just frustrating, and you'd think a [$]piece of equipment could have one of the most basic functions of all - memory.

                  If all you want is the ability to mix two video inputs for "picture in picture" or transitions or "wipes", this is the unit for you. Just keep a few of things in mind:

                  No digital capabilities. Only anolog input/outputs like composite and S-video.

                  Cannot mix composite and S-video in the same input/output line. One way or no way.

                  Have fun. Its a great starting point on a tight budget.

                      I'm a VJ (Video Jockey) and I use this when I mix live video to the music of DJs or musiciens.

                      What's great about it is that it's affordable, compared to the Edirol and Vixid VJ mixers AND it has sound input/output which neither of the others have (I often record my live performances). Plus it has monitor outputs, which now the Edirol V8 has, but not the V4. And it's light weight.

                      This is my 2nd one because the buttons (A/B) do start to go because it's not designed for VJing per say, but it did last longer than I anticipated (and now my older one can be modified and I'll have a backup).

                      We bought this unit to begin DVD recording and webcasting almost 3 years ago and haven't had a moment's trouble with it. It provides silky smooth transitions for the 4 video inputs and a built-in audio mixer. It is capable of doing so much more, but is a workhorse that we have taken for on-the-fly two camera mixing too many events. Add a couple of cameras, an audio line from the sound board, and a 3 by 4-inch video monitor and you are up and running! You will double the price to buy ANYTHING else. This is an awesome, durable, entry-level (and then some) piece that I recommend all the time!
