The unit is equipped with a wide variety of professional features designed for the most demanding studio environments. Features include 3D transitions, color correction, and chroma keying. This model also offers an event memory that can store up to (100) event and setting conditions, which can be assigned to (24) user buttons.

The HVS-240OUA control panel keeps the same familiar operating system, while enhancing usage and functionality.
