Support for 3Gbps Format Added to Echolab Overture MD Switchers

  • This year, Echolab's Overture MD switcher, available in 1- or 2-M/E configurations, becomes even more versatile with the addition of 3Gbps (1080p60) format support to its existing range of SD, 720p, and 1080i over a single SDI or HDMI input. Many production companies and broadcasters use a mix of formats, requiring a costly and cumbersome mix of outboard equipment to translate signals for the switcher. With internal analog-to-digital conversion and frame sync, the Overture MD enables a compact, streamlined, and cost-effective production solution. The addition of 3Gbps operation means the Overture now supports the highest quality broadcast format now on the market.
