4-Input Seamless 3GSDI audio-video Switcher with Quadview

The VSW-2200 allows seamless switching between up to 4 HD-SDI video feeds, delivering broadcast-quality transitions for live broadcasts, teleconferences or live-streamed events. All four inputs may be simultaneously monitored in a single “Quad-View” display. In addition to the four live inputs, the VSW-2200 can store up to four still images for use as full-screen graphics pages. Switching is seamless between video sources whether interlace or progressive, varying resolutions and differing frame rates. The embedded processor converts signals from various input source formats to match the native resolution of monitors, flat panel displays, projectors, encoders, etc. Program and Quad-view outputs are separately selectable up to 1920x1080 @ 50/60 fps. Program Output is provided in both SDI and HDMI formats while the Quad-view is output only via HDMI.

Flexible control is provided using the front panel buttons, hand-held remote, or connected to USB and Ethernet computer interfaces. The included software control application provides adjustment of Brightness, Contrast, Saturation, Horizontal and Vertical Positioning, Quad-View Layout, Labels and Borders.

The Main Menu is designed to provide a very simple and clean interface.
Operation of this screen is designed to mimic manual operation of VSW-2200, with a few select differences:
The Still Store button turns the stored image on and off. If there is no stored image, the button will have no effect.
The Take Enable check box selects the operating mode. When it is checked, the switcher will be in Preset/Take mode.
When unchecked, the switcher is in Immediate Take mode.
