The Datavideo Mobile Broadcast Production Bundle includes the HS-2800 Hand Carried HD/SD Mobile Studio and HRS-30 Portable Hand Carried HD/SD-SDI Recorder with built-in 10.1" monitor. This package is made specifically for broadcasting and/or recording at venues that require many cameras.
The HS-2800 Hand Carried HD/SD Mobile Studio is an eight-channel 10-bit 1920 x 1080i broadcast-quality mobile switcher. The HS-2800 is suitable for TV and video professionals working on location for use in a temporary video studio, such as theaters, conference centers, and live performance venues. The flexibility of the HS-2800 also makes it a solution for the worship, education, and AV market. The unit comes built into a rugged plastic carry case, with a 17.3" LCD monitor mounted into the lid. The system is completely pre-wired and self-contained. Bring it to the location, open the lid, power up, plug in the inputs and outputs, and you are set to go.
Even though it is small, compact, and easily transportable, the HS-2800 is not short on features you would expect to find in a professional switcher. It is equipped with an eight-way intercom system and is supplied with four intercom units, headsets, and tally lights. The switcher features eight input channels, and can input HD/SD-SDI and HDMI signals, four balanced analog audio inputs (two stereo channels), and supports embedded audio. The switcher provides two HD-SDI outputs, and an HDMI monitor output, as well as two balanced analog audio outputs. It features adjustable audio delay on each input, so you don't need additional equipment if you need to delay your audio. Switcher functions include the T-Bar for manual transitions, two downstream keyers, and a choice of cut, mix, and wipe transitions. You can also control the switcher remotely via RS-422 protocols. As the unit powers with 12 VDC using a standard 4-pin XLR, you can power it from an available battery or power supply, making it equally usable on location or out in the field.
The clamshell design of the HRS-30 Portable Hand Carried HD/SD-SDI Recorder with built-in 10.1" monitor makes it suitable for use on locations for off-camera recording. The integrated physical control keyboard provides push-button navigation and playback of your video clips with familiar VTR style control. It features a small LCD screen for clip information, so your footage can play back on the 10.1" monitor screen.
The 10.1" TFT LCD is built into the cover of the HRS-30, so there is no need to cable the monitor; just open the cover and power up. The unit accepts HD-SDI and SD-SDI signals through its input, providing a loop-through SDI output, and an HDMI and SDI output for playback from the unit. Recording the video image using MPEG 2 codec with 4:2:2 color sampling provides a great balance of quality versus file size. You can choose to record your footage as either MXF or MOV files. The unit records to optional 2.5" SATA drives that are mounted in the included removable drive rack. Power for the HRS-30 is either through use of an optional V-Mount battery attached to the built-in mount, or by using the included power supply which features a locking power connector.
