    Datavideo HS-1200 reviews

    HS-1200 HD 6-Channel Portable Production Studio is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from SDI limited to 108i After over a year of releasing theDatavideoSE-700 and the poor sales of that unit you do the same thing and release thing product with only 1080p in the two HDMI inputs and leave the SDI inputs to be 1080i. Apparently you guys didn't learn from the poor sales of the SE-700. I didn't buy this product but would like to buy it and I would if you add 1080p to the SDI inputs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable Mixing Easy I am coming from an ATEM switcher and this setup was appealing to me as it allowed me to get an all in one unit without the heft of my old fly pack and a proper control surface. This also had easy integration with their intercom system to provide tally feedback to my camera operators. I wish the intercom was integrated on the unit like the HS-2800 etc but this mixer has a few features like chromakey and stinger transition that the others are missing. The software to upload images/clips and manager other settings is windows only at the moment. If you want to change input names or bulk upload things you will have to have the computer handy. You can do frame grabs from any of the inputs and they will be put on input 6 which you can then save to the frame store as a method of importing without using the software from a Mac. I had no issues getting a Macbook and a Dell to display via HDMI on one of the HDMI inputs. This switcher has no scalers so that is really dependant on your laptop and its ability to match the video settings you have. Overall very happy with this device and its control surface. The fact that it integrates a 17 display all in one is awesome.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great HD video switcher I love this product. I've used it for 3 live sporting events so far and it has performed great, does exactly what the documentation says it will and Data Video's YouTube channel has lots if informational videos to help the learning process along.
