question

is this 110V or 220V? or it works with both?
Asked by: Abdulrahman A.
The unit works on DC 5V from the universal (120-240 volts) power adapter that is supplied. You will need a plug adapter for use outside of the USA. One solution for that would be this kit. Watson APK International Adapter Plug Kit B&H # WAAPK Or you can see all the possible choices we have here. <a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/buy/travel-adapters/ci/27039/pn/2/N/3828168045+3827784954 target= _blank >http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/buy/travel-adapters/ci/27039/pn/2/N/3828168045+3827784954.</a>

Can you set this to fade between video inputs?

Can you set this to fade between video inputs?
Asked by: Silas
That is not possible. This is a basic AV switcher. You would need a production switcher to be able to fade between inputs. The Blackmagic Design ATEM Mini HDMI Live Stream Switcher is a great starting option for that, BH #BLSWATEMMIN. https://bhpho.to/2VuTdCS
