It comes with 14 mixing channels and allows you to effortlessly mix and output various video sources such as cameras, VTRs, RGB computer sources, Blu-ray/DVD, and high-end SD/HD-SDI video sources without external converters.

With the included HD/SD SDI input for professional video equipment and DVI-D, the switcher directly connects to PC/Mac. You can output digital/analog HD resolution even while down-converting.

The Multi-Format Video Switcher offers various multi-screen solutions such as independent outputs, multi-screen with edge-blending, dual mode, and split mode. One video input can be daisy-chained to multiple inputs using the thru out connectors. The scaler for each input can be zoomed to any position in the video image. With the built-in monitor, you can preview each video source when external monitors are not available or ideal.

With 64 (8 x 8) memory banks, the switcher can store and instantly recall setup parameters. It has the intuitive operating ability to control DSK (Downstream Keyer), key composition, and PiP.

              Excellent for event or broadcast. But needs more SD inputs and outputs.
              HD inputs were great. Built in screen looks great and is Very helpful.
              Some inputs and outputs are too close together.
