7 In/5 Out, Full HD, 5-Channel Multi-Format Video Switcher and DVE Processor

The AV400HD Multi-Format Video Switcher offers exceptional video switching/mixing capabilities to live webcast and broadcast studios. With 7 multi-format video inputs and a fully configurable, 5 cross-point button array, the AV400HD combines several AV production tools in one portable package, including audio mixer, digital video effects processor (DVE), and frame synchronizer. Thanks to the AV400HD’s built-in digital video effects processor, you can mix and match video formats without the need to adjust video size, resolution, or scale. Plus, you can mix and edit effects to make smooth transitions between channels to polish your productions with the sheen of professional-looking video. Using the ergonomically optimized control panel, you can scale, stretch, crop, and zoom as your creative muse directs. For added visual impact, the switcher offers a wide selection of wipe patterns, and features a high-quality chroma key for green screen applications in broadcast and production.

The AV400HD has 5 video outputs (3 x digital, 1 x SDI, 1 x analog), internal memory for user-defined presets, and SMPTE time code support for synchronizing video and audio. The AV400HD is the only multi-format switcher in its class to offer unique and powerful features, such as video I/O over long CAT 5 cable runs;
 USB audio input; 
joystick control for pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) camera control via RS-422 digital connection; 
HD 1080p recording to USB 3.0 drive;
 matrix SDI outputs that allow routing to ISO recorders, projectors, and overflow rooms; and scalers on every input for picture-in-picture (PIP), downstream keying, fades, and dissolves without limitation.






Multiview Screen

The AV400HD’s 1080p HDMI multiview output can display up to 5 full-motion preview images from different sources to a single high-resolution display, eliminating the need for multiple HD source and preview monitors. To access the multiview screen, connect a 1080p TV or computer monitor via HDMI to the AV400HD Multiview output

Webcam Emulation

The AV400HD has a PGM (program) RJ-45 output that can take the place of webcam emulation software. Webcam emulation gives you the ability to broadcast videos and images on any website, chat service, or program that normally would require a webcam. With the AV400HD, you can create a video of yourself talking and have it appear as though you are talking in real time during a chat session.

Long-Distance Video I/O Via Cat5/6 Cable

AV400HD’s CAT5/6 HD video transmits long-distance, uncompressed video with no loss in quality. Lightweight and easy to install on long cable runs, CAT5/6 cable makes audiovisual system installation clean, uncluttered, and far more cost-effective than standard cable runs. Additionally, CAT5/6 makes audio-visual mapping much more flexible, while multi-zoom can be assigned without the use of jumper cables. The implementation of CAT5/6 HD video also allows transmission of 1080p video up to 220 feet (70 meters).

DSK (Downstream Keying) Operations

The AV400HD’s DSK or downstream key gives you the ability to mix and fade signals behind keyed lyrics or graphics. With this feature, you can overlay logos, texts and subtitles onto the existing picture to produce videos that are high quality and professional.



Live Event Webcast

The video mixer allows you to switch between cameras, picture-in-picture effect to show graphics and presenter simultaneously, or multiple screens, etc. A switcher can also enable split-screen to show presenter and remote guest interview via Skype.

Each unit may output a different video resolution or different scale signals, the AV400HD’s scalers on each channel can size each video to fill the frame.

The streaming program material can be recorded with AV400HD’s built-in recorder via USB 3.0 drive, and sent via the AV400HD’s 3G-SDI output (no need for format conversion) to an H.264 video encoder for live streaming.

Another very important component of live webcast, or any broadcast for that matter, is audio. When connected via USB to a modern USB-enabled audio mixer, you have a complete audio-video solution.

Video for Worship Services

A video setup for worship services requires a certain amount of forethought. If you’re just using a single video source, a video switcher isn’t necessary. However, if you need to handle several cameras and route between different signals across multiple church campuses, an AV400HD will come in very handy, especially if you want to record the services for the congregation or broadcast later in another location.

Cameras and multiple sources are the driving force for integrating a video switcher into your system. When you have cameras for image magnification, recording, or for broadcasting/streaming, you need all the functions of the AV400HD offers, such as cross-dissolves, keying, routing, and digital video effects (DVE), AV400HD is definitely a video switcher can certainly improve your workflow and keep the audience engaged.



Corporate Training and Educational Facilities

The AV400HD’s HDMI input and output with multi-format support allows you to freely mix computer and video sources and output to a wide range of displays and devices, making it a perfect choice for corporate training and seminars, and educational facilities.

In the case of a presentation that requires multiple video sources, such as a camera, laptop PowerPoint, DVR playback, the AV400HD accepts multiple video inputs and DVE processing, such as downstream keying, and picture-in-picture (PIP), allow you to combine live video of the presenter along with PIP graphics display and text. The on board recording facility of the AV400HD lets you record presentations etc., for later broadcast or DVD distribution.
