With intuitive operation and a portable design, the Nipros VSE-500HD Compact Field Switcher is ideal for live event productions where mobility and quick setups are required. It supports up to six HD-SDI inputs and provides four program outputs. Cut between sources directly or transition between two sources using familiar T-bar control and any of the 13 built-in wipe transitions. Transitions can also be automated with transition times set between 0 and 200 frames.

With six HD-SDI inputs, the VSE-500HD is scalable from small to mid-sized productions. The sixth HD-SDI input can also be used as a title input. Also provided is a preview output, reference/genlock input, four synchronized outputs, and loop outputs for all of the video inputs to facilitate connection to monitors and other devices. Additionally, there is a tally input with indicator lights built-in into the switcher. For added versatility, the switcher can operate using either 110VAC or 12VDC power.

6-Channel HD-SDI Inputs
Five HD-SDI inputs and one title input available. The title input can be used as a sixth HD-SDI input when the title input not required. All inputs have loop through outputs to facilitates for passing the signals on to additional devices.
Built-In Frame Synchronizer
A frame synchronizer is embedded on all inputs. This allows for asynchronous signals to be switched without glitches. It can also be turned off for external sync via the reference/genlock input.
