Fantastic for video art

I work with analog video and this is a great compositing tool for all of my video synthesizers and glitch machines. It's built in TBC is a great bonus.

This is a great portable video and audio mixer, perfect for live events. Took it new out of the box and was able to use it at a event the next day. Hooks up great with multiple laptops using the s-cables. Great quality for the price and portability.

I do legal video and from time to time the attorneys need to show documents to a witness on video and also so the jury at trial can see what the witness was looking at the time of his deposition. This Sima unit works great, picture in picture mode 3 sizes of PIP, mixes, wipes, and keys, great in SD. It does not HD. LOW COST and easy to use.

Good and handy gadget

The SFx-11 was bought simple multi-camera production recordings. Very user friendly and easy to setup. The only disadvantage is the 3rd and 4th input which only have s-video input. Otherwise the SFX-11 is as good as those cost more than double its price.

Looking forward to sharing this with my news team

The video effects mixer is being used in our news studio. My 5th grade students are anchors, weather person and camera person. We are looking forward to enhancing our production and including PIP as the old newscasters did and the green screen as the weather people use today.

Usage: recording of investigations with enormous ease of use, have all needed capabilities for the purpose of masking, or not . Have all capabilities in compact package. Value for money is enormous

Two defective units

I use this mixer in a research lab where we want to connect four cameras and use the PIP function. I own two of these mixers and both are defective. Specifically, only one of the two s-video ports works on both mixers. Therefore, you can only connect 3 cameras (not the advertised 4) to this mixer.

Terrible Video and Sound Mixer

By Dominic Mazzetti

This mixer is the worst piece of equipment that I've ever used in my life. In all of my 40 years of experience, I have to say color and the sliders on the mixer constantly fail. It always messes up on morning broadcasts and the quality of video is horrible. Color is never persistent, as everyday color is never on point. Do not buy this product as it is not worth $, your better off getting a video mixer and a sound mixer than this ugly hybrid.

question

what is the difference between the Sima 9 and the Sima 11. Is the output any better??
Asked by: PETE R.
I can only speak to the output of the Sima 11. We have been using it for about 6 months and have been very satisfied with the results. We are using it at a high school to film live sports and concerts, etc., using multiple cameras. Again the output has met our expectations very well.

question

Description mentions 4 video outputs but does not say what kind. Composite? Component? HDMI? S-Video? Also lists only a single audio input. Is there no audio mix capability? No audio-follow-video? What are the audio input & output levels?
Asked by: Anonymous
It has 2 composite and two s-video outputs. Each of the 4 composite video inputs have audio follow video. You can adjust the input and output levels.
