Powerful production switcher upgrades from SD to HD

The MVS 7000X is available for SD, HD or 1080/50P (3G) production and a simple software upgrade will allow the user to switch between these modes. Powerful features include up to 6 ME operation with up to eight high-performance keyers per full ME bus (only four in 6ME mode), 8 channels of format conversion, with frame synchronisation support and two channels of multi-viewer output. An internal two or four channel DME processor can also be installed offering visual effects of superb quality, equivalent to those of the external MVE-9000 processor.

Shares common architecture with the MVS family

The MVS-7000X is the latest model in the MVS family of production switchers. Due to their common architecture, the MVS-7000X shares the same control panels and peripherals as the rest of the MVS family, meaning that a customer wishing to upgrade to the latest processor can utilise their existing infrastructure. With innovative operability, brilliant performance, and system flexibility, the MVS-7000X is set to inspire creativity in a wide range of multi-format production applications.

Upgradable to HD operation

Using optional software, users can work in SD initially and, as required, upgrade their system to a SD / HD multi-format switcher. With optional software, the MVS-7000X switcher operates in a huge variety of formats, including 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i, 1080/29.97 PsF, 1080/25PsF, 1080/24PsF, 1080/23.97PsF, 720/59.94P, 720/50P, 1080/59.94P and 1080/50P.

3D signal production capability

The MVS-7000X is designed for 3D production in a 3 Gbps or 1.5 Gbps dual-link system. Left- and right-eye signals for 3D video are combined into a single 3 Gbps signal for both three-dimensional and 1080P production applications. Laborious link settings can be simply adjusted in the unique 3D mode, and, in dual-stream mode, 2D signals and 3D signals can be assigned to crosspoint buttons. When left- and right-eye signal combinations for 3D video are incorrect, they can be easily changed via the touch screen menu. The depth of 2D graphics can also be adjusted via the DME function on the newly designed parallax menu.

Easy and efficient operation

The MVS-7000X switcher has a large colour touch-screen menu for efficient and intuitive system control. Button indications are greatly enhanced over previous-generation switchers. Crosspoint source name displays, FlexiPad, and Shot Box™ buttons all incorporate a backlit three-colour LCD indicator to which preset pattern icons or text can be imported and displayed. In addition, optional remote-control panels, such as AUX Remote,), and M/E Remote panels, allow convenient operating environments for live use.
