HD Expansion Continues with the Panasonic AW-HS50N 11/01/2010
This affordable new sub-compact HD/SD Live Switcher with built-in MultiViewer is perfect for smaller productions or as a backup switcher on larger projects.

Zasco Productions is pleased to announce that we have added this unit to our video inventory! Ideal for small productions which ordinarily would not have the budget for a seamless or production switcher, or for backup or axuiliary applications on larger projects. This affordable, portable switcher offers four HD/SD-SDI and one DVI-D inputs, as well as a built-in MultiViewer display.

With a built-in frame-synchronizer for each input, two HD/SD-SDI outputs and one scalable DVI-D output, the HS50 offers powerful, sub-compact switching capabilities for mobile production, AV facilities, and event video. As a component in Panasonic’s first complete Internet Protocol (IP) production system, the HS50 provides IP links to the new AW-RP50 remote camera controller, enabling automatic selection of the currently controlled P/T/Z camera video on the switcher’s AUX bus.

The HS50’s built-in MultiViewer allows users to see four, nine, or 10 images on a single display via a high-resolution output—significantly reducing the cost, size, and weight of a new HD production system. The adjustable MultiViewer outputs can also be used to provide a multi-image large-screen presentation display. Other advanced functions include dedicated hardware for picture-in-picture (PinP), a chroma keyer, and auto or manual video transitions.

The switcher’s 10-bit frame synchronizers ensure reliable, glitch-free switching even with non-synchronous sources such as remote camera feeds, small camcorders, and computer graphics.

Additional standard features include camera tally outputs, an on-screen display (OSD) for viewing switcher settings, GPI input, an Ethernet interface for connection to a PC, and one AUX Bus for a versatile production workflow.

The HS50 switcher is designed to provide economical 10-bit, 4:2:2 HD or SD live switching, and supports 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i, 720/59.94p and 720/50p in HD formats, and 480/59.94i and 576/50i in SD.
