Vaddio's new ProductionView HD MV adds new processor technology, multiviewer capabilities, and digital inputs and outputs to the company's existing ProductionView HD, company officials said. And Combined with Vaddio's new TeleTouch Multiviewer Touch Screens, users can now switch all live feeds and create up to 12 video thumbnails of preset shots by touching the monitor. The thumbnails provide an easy way to identify and recall preset camera positions on a per-input basis in the preview window, according to Vaddio.
"Our customers love the ProductionView HD's easy-to-use, all-in-one design that integrates camera control, video mixing, and broadcast quality effects," said Rob Sheeley, president of Vaddio, in a statement. "The new ProductionVIEW HD MV, with its next-generation processor technology, auto-sensing digital inputs and outputs, and integrated multiviewer give our customers a lot more to love. In addition to the new system architecture, we have added a new optional Touch Screen Multiviewer Control Monitor that makes our system even easier to use."
ProductionView HD MV is a 6x2 multiformat, seamless video mixer that also provides two discrete outputs for dual bus program feeds (two independent 6x1 mixers). Input signals include analog HD YPbPr video, RGBHV, and SD (Y/C and CVBS). Input 6 provides a DVI-I input for RGBHV, DVI-D and HDMI. The program and preview outputs have both analog (YPbPr, RGBHV, Y/C & CVBS) and digital (DVI-D & HDMI) outputs. HD resolutions up to 1080p/60 are supported.
Camera control features include a broadcast-style 3-axis/1-button Hall Effect Joystick with twist handle zoom control, as well as separate pan, tilt, and speed control knobs. There are six discrete auto-sensing RS-232 camera control ports that are compatible with Vaddio, Sony, Panasonic, and Canon PTZ cameras. Company officials said a wide variety of transitions, including cuts, dissolves, and wipes, can be achieved through user-selectable buttons built into the control surface. The Lower Screen Graphic (LSG) function allows users to overlay computer graphics onto the program video output.
The optional TeleTouch Multiviewer Touch Screen Control Monitor can be configured to display up to six input windows and two larger preview and program windows with red and green tally window borders. The preview output is configurable for analog and digital outputs and allows for either standard preview outputs or the multiviewer output. In addition, each camera input can have up to 12 stored video thumbnail preset camera shots. The TeleTouch Touch Screen Control Monitors are available in two sizes: 18.5-inch rack-mount or a standard 22-inch with base.
