It is equipped with analog and digital outputs (main and preview) and offers RGBHV, DVI, SD/HD-TV analog, and SD/HD-SDI outputs.

Operation can be set to Mixer, Native Matrix, or Quadravision modes in the EKS500 switcher.

Live layers can be customized using attributes such as borders, movements, zoom, or transparency. Along with features such as mosaic preview, dynamic fit, and mirror effects, the EKS500 seamless switcher offers high-resolution digital processing with adjustments for chrominance, luminance and DSK (Downstream keying).

The EKS500's large graphic VFD screen with control knobs and buttons offers easy and fast access to menus and adjustments. The multi-layer seamless switcher also comes with features such as animated logo, frame store, smooth move effect, memory presets, internal test patterns, audio breakaway, and audio delay compensation.
