  • Typical live events today, whether large or small, all require a wide variety of equipment and needs in order to produce.

  • - A video mixer to mix various video and computer sources of various formats using difference connectors (digital and analog)
  • - Preview monitors to view all the sources
  • - Recording or archiving the event
  • - Streaming the event online
  • The VR-50HD results in a reduction in hardware equipment, setup time and connection complexity ensuring a worry-free, easy to use solution for any event.
  • The video side of the VR-50HD includes a 12-input, 4-channel multi-format video switcher that also includes a still store channel for graphics, logo or frame capture. Inputs can be 3G/HD/SD SDI, HDMI, RGB/component and composite. Output includes USB and both a Main and Aux bus, both available via SDI, HDMI and RGB/Component connections. An additional HDMI output is included for an external multi-viewer monitor if desired.
  • The audio section includes a 12-channel digital audio mixer at the heart. Sources can be mixed from any of the 12 analog inputs or from audio embedded in the 4 SDI or 4 HDMI inputs. Audio processing includes audio-follow settings as well as gates, compression, PEQ, delay, reverb and even mastering capabilities on the main output. Audio is mixed and re-embedded into the SDI, HDMI, and analog Main and Aux buses as well as the USB output.
