The input resolution of the VGA input is fixed to [NTSC: 1024 x 768 (60 Hz), PAL: 1024 x 768 (50 Hz)]. If a source with higher resolution (e.g., laptop output) is connected to this input, the video resolution will be reduced to this value.
When a video channel that has no input (i.e., not connected to video devices such as cameras or DVD players) is selected, it will appear as a blank screen in your broadcast and video noise may appear when switching back to other video channels.
Output 2 x Master (composite / USB)
1 x Preview (composite)

Note: There is no frame synchronizer in the PBS4. Therefore, video noise on the output screen (mainly composite output) may appear for a moment when switching video source due to the synchronization of the video signal. Please be forewarned.
