AV-HS410 - Live Switcher
New AV-HS410 live switcher with substantially improved user interface and excellent expandability

The AV-HS410 is an HD/SD selectable 1ME Switcher that rivals many high-end switchers by incorporating a host of inputs and outputs, effects and system expandability into its compact, 19 type, half-rack size. It comes standard with 9 inputs and can increase a maximum capacity of 13 inputs when optional boards are mounted. It provides versatile effects, including transitions with digital video effects and Primatte® chroma keying. Its 177.8 mm (7 inches) color LCD monitor improves operability by an easy-to-see setting screen, new video memory, Memory Preview, enhanced MultiViewer functions, and a button layout that is designed to simplify live relay operation.

Features
  • High-End Performance and Functions
  • Expandable 1ME Switcher with Enhanced User Interface
  • HD/SD Multi-Format
  • 9 Inputs Standard 8 x SDI and 1 x DVI, 13 Inputs Maximum
  • New Memory Functions and Versatile, High-Quality Effects
9 Standard Inputs/6 Standard Outputs (Max. 13 Inputs/10 Outputs)
The AV-HS410 comes standard with 9 x inputs (Eight SDI (HD/SD) and One DVI-D) and Six outputs (Five SDI (HD/SD) and One DVI-D). Two expansion slots accommodate either input or output optional boards, providing a maximum of 13 inputs, and 10 outputs.

HD/SD Multi-Format Support
The AV-HS410 supports standard HD/SD multi-format, including 1080/24PsF. System frequency is 59.94 Hz/50 Hz/24Hz switchable. This makes the system ideal for digital cinema production and worldwide operation. A wide range of optional boards also allows the input and output of analog component and various other signals.

Built-in Frame Synchronizer for All Input Channels

All input channels feature a built-in frame synchronizer for use in switching unsynchronized video signals. A gen-lock function also supports synchronizing systems based on external sync signals (black burst or tri-level).

Up-Converter, Dot by Dot and Video Processing
The AV-HS410 is equipped with an SD/HD up-converter function for four inputs, and a dot by dot function for eight inputs. Dot by dot input can be used for P-in-P display of HD images from SD footage without degradation. A video processing function with color correction is also provided for eight inputs.

Four Aux Buses and Two P-in-P
Two P-in-P buses and four Aux buses are provided. Borders and software effects can be applied to the P-in-P buses. In addition to a Cut transition, the bus transition function (P-in-P bus and Aux bus switching effect) also enables a Mix transition (Aux 1 only). Flexible operation is achieved by combining Aux buses and M/E sections.

Versatile Transitions and Effects
In addition to standard wipe, mix and cut effects, DVE transition patterns using two channels, such as reduce, slide, squeeze and 3D wipe are included.

New Video Memory Function for Two Inputs
Two inputs for still (STILL) or moving (CLIP) images can be saved in Video Memory, and selected as bus footage. Moving pictures can be recorded and played with key signals (for a maximum of approximately 20 seconds/600 frames with 59.94i). Moving picture and still files can also be transferred over a LAN network from an SDHC/SD Memory Card or PC.

SDHC/SD Memory Card Slot
Video memory, shot memory, event memory and set-up data can be saved to SDHC/SD Memory Cards.

Primatte High-Quality Chroma Key
Linear, luminance and chroma keying are provided. Chroma keying employs the Primatte® algorithm, which is widely used as a plug-in for nonlinear editors. The same excellent Primatte® image quality that is used worldwide for movies, TV programs, music videos and commercials is achieved by the AV-HS410's real time processing. Superior blue-spill processing naturally combines translucent objects, such as thin cloth and glass, with background colors. Extremely fine objects, such as individual strands of hair, are faithfully reproduced. One DSK channel is also provided to add borders, shadows, and other edge effects

Shot Memory
Up to 100 image effects, such as background transition patterns, P-in-P sizes and border widths, can be registered in shot memory for instant retrieval. The AV-HS410's Effect Dissolve function enables smooth switching from a current image to one of the images or operations registered in the shot memory.

Event Memory
Up to 64 of the image effects that are registered in the shot memory can be sequentially registered in the event memory for instant retrieval. This allows highly expressive consecutive effects to be easily and smoothly executed. Up to 100 event memories can be registered.
