2 M/E Mode
This provides a standard 2 M/E operation style. Two keyers can be used with each M/E. Keyer priority can also be assigned and changed. Not only is re-entry of the video source from M/E 1 to M/E 2 possible, but so is reverse re-entry from M/E 2 to M/E 1. This means you can switch the two M/Es and output them from a single PGM output. The two M/Es can also be output independently allowing for applications such as simultaneous transmission of captions in two different languages.
1.5 M/E Mode
This is the highest-performance operation style, capable of using PGM/PST rows as the final stage in addition to M/E 1. All four keyers can be used in M/E 1. You can freely change the priority of each keyer, and even copy keyers. This mode enables complex mixing operations such as switching a video source with four compositions to another single video source.
1 M/E Mode
This is a simple operation style using 1 M/E + 4 keys. In addition to using PGM/PST rows on the main line, you can use two AUX buses. This mode allows discrete video feeds to be switched and routed to additional outputs making the V-1200HD the ideal primary switcher for a number of broadcast and live performance applications.
4:4:4 Multi-Format Processor
There are two scalers between the 4:2:2 engine and the 4:4:4 engine, and two scalers between HDMI IN 3 and 4 and the 4:4:4 engine. These enable switching, self key composition, and matrix output. Signals input from HDMI IN 3 and 4 can be sent to both 4:2:2 process and 4:4:4 process, which means if you choose the latter, you will get clearer computer images. With the scalers you can also display a single picture across two screens.
A dedicated V-1200HDR controller provides fast and accurate operation. Dual touch monitors provide quick and easy operation. All the functionality required for operation of a high-end switcher, in an efficient compact size.
Multi-format support for a diverse range of inputs and outputs. Two expansion slots are provided for even more compatibility.
A wide variety of video effects enhances broadcast studio productions. Composition with freely selectable priority can be accomplished using the four scaler-equipped keyers. The system also features high-end Chroma Key, as well as the External Key essential for title compositing. In addition to PGM and PVW output, two AUX buses are usable for output (when in the 1M/E mode).
Multiple M/E choices allow for a diverse range of video production applications in one switcher. The V-1200HD is ideal as a main switcher for concert recording and for a live feed. Through a variety of multi-view functions, even a large number of sources can be checked at a glance. The M/E configuration can be varied as desired to meet the needs of the production. Control up to seven remote cameras ensures creative productions even with limited camera operators.
Events and Conferences
Equipped with HDMI input and output with multi-format support. Freely mix computer and video sources and output to a wide range of displays and devices. Along with ten 3G/SD/HD-SDI inputs, the V-1200HD features four HDMI inputs. Six 3G/SD/HD-SDI and two HDMI outputs are also provided. Among these, the two HDMI inputs and outputs offer multi-format support. Computer sources with varying resolutions and frame rates are supported without a need for video converters. The signal is passed directly to the 4:4:4 process, so it can be output, unchanged, at the same high resolution. What's more, using an XI expansion card with a built-in scaler makes it possible to mix digital and analog inputs and outputs.
Classrooms and Event Halls
Supporting a rich range of control as a video/audio hub. The full-featured routing functionality enables conversion and distribution of a high number of video sources in a variety of formats. The V-1200HD can also achieve remote operation as a video/audio source hub from a variety of control terminals and programs. In addition to just simple video switching, the system also offers functions available only on production switchers, such as distributing PinP video to various locations.
