Housed in a 2 RU frame, the SE-2850 is ideal for use in both large broadcast systems or portable mini-racks for live productions. Routing is controlled via Ethernet using the included Windows software or via RS-422 control.

    For advanced audio control, the SE-2850 can be connected to an external mixer (not included). Additional switcher features include dual PiP, two downstream keyers, cross-point video and audio, two independent logo functions, and a built-in title overlay system.

  • HDR-70 HDD Recorder for SD/HD-SDI with Removable Drive Bay

    The DataVideo HDR-70 HDD Recorder for SD/HD-SDI with Removable Drive Bay is a rack mountable video recorder for studio control rooms or video production trucks. It records NTSC, PAL, and HD video signals and features an SD/HD-SDI input and two mini-XLR recording to 2.5" form factor HDD or SSDs in a removable drive caddy. The HDR-70 features selectable color sampling ratio and data rate settings. This compact unit features a small footprint and is made from painted aluminum for strength. The front panel buttons provide you local tape deck like control of the unit, with built-in led audio level meters. The HDR-70 features two XLR inputs and outputs for balanced audio.

    The included drive caddy supports available drives (both HDD and SSD) up to 500GB, and once removed from the HDR-70 the enclosures can be connected directly to a computer via the built-in USB 2.0 or eSata interface for off loading or editing directly from the drive. The unit writes to the NTFS file format system, which makes the drive readable by both Mac and Windows systems and avoids the 4GB file size limitation of FAT32 systems. For remote control, the HDR-70 features a 9-pin connector that allows control by RS-232 or RS-422. The unit is powered by 12 volts DC, and the cable connector features a locking collar so the power cable can't be accidentally unplugged.
