Compact SD / HD audio and video switcher

 

  • Video and audio switching

    Both video and audio can be mixed with the MCS-8M, so there is no need for an external audio mixer. The MCS-8M features the same audio mixing features as the very popular Anycast Station.

  • Multi-format capability

    The MCS-8M provides 8 video inputs and 4 outputs and operates in either HD or SD mode. It is easy to mix video equipment and computer sources with HD-SDI and DVI interfaces. Features include single channel frame memory, input synchronisation and freeze function for each source.

  • Multi-viewing function

    This function splits the screen into ten or four windows to show multiple images on a single monitor. There is no need for an external device and saves on monitoring space.

  • Integrated M/E, key and aux mix functions

    The MCS-8M incorporates one mix-effects bus with a single key plus the ability for aux mixing. The high specified keyer operates in a number of key modes, including self, split, auto select, linear, pattern, auto chromakey and border (flat colour). Keyer transition allows for cut, mix, standard wipe patterns and transition rate settings.

  • 3D feature for mixing two 3D cameras

    The MCS-8M features a 3D mode that is ideally suited for small 3D productions, supporting two live 3D cameras. 3D functions include l/r link cut, mix and side-by-side output.

  • 6 channel audio mixer

    The MCS-8M features the same 6 Channel audio mixing as the very popular Anycast Station, with audio delay, 48KHz/24bit processing, real channel faders and a master fader.

  • DME Channel

    The system allows for a range of background transitions and DME Wipes, including cut, mix, standard wipe patterns, transition rate settings and DME wipe patterns such as PinP, Slide, Defocus and Mosaic.
