The Sony MVS-6520PAC HD / SD Multi-format Switcher with 2 M/E Control Panel from the MVS-6500 Switcher series inherits the features and technologies from the MVS-X Switcher series. The MVS-6520PAC model is available in a 2 M/E configuration. It features high-performance keyers with chroma-key functionality and resizers, color correction, and multi-viewer outputs offering balance between size and specification. The MVS-6520PAC switcher is ideal for production that requires 32 inputs / 16 outputs and 2 M/E. It is equipped with 8 keyers, allowing sophisticated layering from each M/E. Separate from the main fader, each keyer has its own auto-transition controls, which allow users to insert or remove keys on an individual basis with independent wipes, DME wipes, and dissolves. For further flexibility, each keyer in every M/E also offers chroma-keying and color vector keying, eliminating restrictions of selectable key types. These fully featured M/Es allow total interoperability of effects on all M/Es. The resizer function allows simple 2.5D DME effects to be supported through 4 out of 8 keyers.
A variety of effects such as mosaic and defocus can be applied to resized images. All these effects can be created without the use of an external DME, bringing great advantages for both simple operation and minimal system cost. The MVS-6520PAC switcher possess a rich feature set including a 2-channel multi-viewer output, with a choice of 10- or 4-way split display, saving space on additional monitoring plus offering an easier set-up. It also features an AUX transition capability that allows users to mix transitions using AUX output, and ICP-6520 control panels that include color cross-point patterns ideal for grouping and high-visibility OLED source-name displays. These help the operator stay informed at all times of cross-point, button assignments and source type group.
