Launching at BVE 2015, new low-cost HD production switchers give producers the ability to deliver live graphics and titles straight from a laptop.
With the latest SE-2200 and HS-2200 HD production switchers, users have the option to connect any Windows laptop with an HDMI output and use cost-effective Datavideo CG software to generate and play out stunning real-time motion titles.
Featuring a built-in overlay board, the new low-cost SE-2200 and HS-2200 switchers can deliver broadcast-level graphics with no need for an SDI interface card and high specification workstation.
"These switchers are designed to be portable, ready for use on location. This would normally mean that producers had to rely on titles stored in memory or pre-prepared in presentation software. With the new 2200 range, Datavideo users can use a laptop to make and amend titles on the fly, giving the audience real-time information, whether it's live scores or breaking news." Comments Allan Leonhardsen, Datavideo UK.
Launching on stand K30 at London's BVE 2015, the new lightweight switchers are available either as a vision mixer with traditional console (SE-2200) or with an integrated built-in 17" multi-viewer monitor (HS-2200).
"Whether you need a rack-mounted, hand-carried or OB-installed switcher, the new Datavideo switchers give producers the flexibility to select the device they need. All the systems are easy to operate and deliver full quality HD. Importantly, they are extremely reliable, giving users total peace of mind during a live video shoot." Notes Leonhardsen.
Each model is based on a 6 HD-SDI input design, complete with HDMI connectivity. They include a full range of wipes, effects and transition, multi-viewer monitoring, 4 HD outputs and balanced XLR inputs for connecting to external audio mixers. They are designed to support intercom and tally systems (belt packs are supplied with the HS-2200).
SE-2200 and HS-2200 are available now from resellers across Europe. CG-200 Character Generator software included.
