The AV-HS60U2P Main Frame w/ Dual Power Supply for AV-HS6000 Switcher from Panasonic features the input and output connectors and processing engine that drives the AV-HS6000 2 M/E switcher. It features 32 HD-SDI inputs, along with two DVI-D (digital only) inputs for incorporating content from computer sources. It will support video resolutions up to 1080p at 10-bit, 4:2:2 in YUV color space, and up to 1080p 8-bit, 4:4:4 in RGB color space. Additionally, it will accept VESA computer resolutions up to 1600 x 1200 for 4:3 and 1920 x 1200 for 16:10.
It features 16 output channels, with each output channel mirrored on two SDI outputs. Not only can these outputs be used for an isolated, program, or aux feed, it is also possible to combine up to 16 ISO channels and send to one display using the MultiView function. Additional display arrangements are also possible, including a "squeeze mode" which reduces the image size to fit audio levels and other data around the outside. A total of 4 channels may be used in conjunction with the MultiView function.
The system features two mix and effects (M/E) buses with fades, transitions, and other effects possible. Additionally, the switcher features both upstream and downstream keyers (USK and DSK) for filling in black space, logo and graphic insertion, and compositing. Frequently used effects, setting, video clips, and still images can be save to the internal memory for later recall during a production.
The AV-HS60U2P is designed to be operated using the AV-HS60C1P/AV-HS60C1E or RAV-HS60C2P/AV-HS60C2E control panel. In addition, software plug-ins allow operation over an IP network or using certain Panasonic and third-party RS-422 serial devices. In addition, the AV-HS60C3G Menu Panel is required to access and change settings locally at the switcher.
This version of the AV-HS60U features dual redundant power supplies. This way , if the first power fails the second will instantly takeover so that there is no interruption in service.
