So I’ve narrowed down the video switchers I like to two. Just so everyone knows, this is just for research purposes right now, but I’m trying to figure out which switcher would suit Journey best in the future, as well as what would work at Southeastern. I like these two.
Panasonic B AV-HS400
This is my favorite choice. If we go HD-SDI, it’s a must. Making it work on all analog component would be more pricey, though, since we’d need more expansion cards. We’d already have to get one for computer input (or get an card for our computer to output in the right format). It does some awesome stuff, though. Our cameras to HD-SDI output at 1080i, so that would work.
This is our other option. It has a SD side on the left, which is then mixed down and up-converted to HD on the right. It takes component, composite, and VGA and can output component. Another workable option. Our cameras can also output component.
