Datavideo SE-500 overview

  • 1Description

The SE-500P PAL SD Switcher with Monitors and HDD Recorder is a bundle by Datavideo that combines the Pal version of the Datavideo SE-500 switcher, the Datavideo TLM-702 monitor panel, and the Datavideo DN-700 hard drive recorder with the Datavideo RKM-572 mounting frame. The kit components assemble to create a one-piece solution for SD analog location video switching (composite and S-Video) and digital recording to removable media. Once assembled, the kit is suitable for productions needing a compact control center to cover events at houses of worship, live event locations, educational facilities, and DJ video shows.

The SE-500P switcher is a studio-capable, four-input video mixer offering composite and Y/C functionality. Each input includes both an S-Video as well as a composite BNC connector; however, only one of the two may be used at a time. It features multiple effects, microphone inputs, and a quad-split preview monitor output. It has a built-in TBC for each video input for stabilizing the video signal. An RGB color processor and color corrector for each video input allow you to fine-tune the image. The built-in T-bar controls transitions, and the four built-in audio sliders provide control of three audio channels and a Master output level. The quad preview output of the SE-500P allows you to watch up to four video inputs on the same screen, while at the same time watch the selected input on the program monitor built into the TLM-702. When using the optional Datavideo TB-5 tally box with included cables, the switcher controls tally lights at four camera positions. The MIDI interface and RS-232 port expands the capabilities of the SE-500P beyond manual switcher, and allows remote and automated control.

The DN-700 is a removable media hard drive recorder that records composite video at an HDV/DV data rate of 25 Mbps onto an HDD or SSD in removable enclosures. Hard drive formatting is user-selectable, and is either NTFS or FAT 32, for both Windows and MAC OS compatibility. Rounding out the kit is the RKM-572 holder, which is a metal frame the user assembles. The user then mounts the SE-500P, DN-700 and TLM-702 into the frame, turning the four kit components into one sturdy unit.


SE-500P PAL Switcher
  • Video Control
    Each input channel has a dedicated TBC with YUV 4:2:2 frame synchronizer for composite and S-Video (Y/C) ensuring a stable video signal. Brightness, color, contrast, and tint can be adjusted for each input via the built-in color processors.
  • Preview Out
    The switcher has a Quad Preview output, with tally indicator, enabling the viewing of four inputs on the same screen, eliminating the need for a bank of monitors.
  • Video Out
    The two composite video and one Y/C (S-Video) connector are for feeding the second monitor on the TLM-702, or additional monitors with the program feed. The S-Video and one composite video output can be combined using the YUV breakout cable to deliver a component video output, leaving one composite video output to feed the program monitor.
  • Audio
    The switcher has one Master and three independent audio sliders to mix the analog audio signals from the two 1/4" mono phono jacks, and one stereo pair of RCA jacks. Audio output is available from the output stereo pair of RCA jacks.
  • MIDI, RS-232
    The switcher is controllable by both MIDI and RS-232 control protocols. This allows it to operate by remote, or to be automated and run by a computer, making it a great tool for VJs and live shows.
TLM-702 Dual Monitor Rack
  • Video
    Both 7" monitors can auto-detect and display a PAL or NTSC signal, and are independently switchable between 16:9 and 4:3. Each monitor has two selectable loop-through inputs/outputs for feeding displays or recording units, and either can be used as preview or program monitor.
  • Controls
    The monitors work independently of each other, each monitor having its own power on/off switch, calibration adjustments, aspect ratio selector, and tally light indicator. Each monitor can select between two composite video inputs.
  • Resolution
    Each monitor has a resolution of 480 x 234.
DN-700 Hard Disk Recorder
  • Format
    The recording media can be formatted as either NTFS or FAT32, for both Windows and MAC OS compatibility. Video is captured in either the .avi, .mov, or .mxf file format. Settings on the recorder allow recording in time-lapse mode, or on an eight-second buffer, essentially allowing the user to start recording eight seconds before triggering the record function.
  • Video
    Designed as an HDV/DV capture device, the data rate of the DN-700 is fixed at 25 Mbps, and HDV/DV can be fed into the recorder via a six-pin Firewire cable. The recorder takes in analog video via a composite connector, and analog audio via the unbalanced audio RCA Jacks. The analog video and audio signals are then digitized into one signal and recorded at 25 Mbps.
  • File Transfer
    The removable drive enclosure system allows the user to swap out recording media, and download the files from that drive, while still being able to record footage on another drive. The drive enclosure is designed to be connected directly to a computer, and doesn't need an additional power supply to function when connected to a computer using the included USB cable.The DN-700 unit itself can be set to HDD mode, and when connected to a computer via an optional six-pin Firewire cable, will behave as a hard drive.
  • Control Interfaces
    The GPI In socket can be used for simple external control. the DN-700 accepts either pulse or level trigger inputs which can trigger record, playback, and pause commands. The DN-700 can also be controlled via the RS-232 remote connector on the rear panel. Timecode can be fed to the unit via the TC IN socket on the rear panel.
