  • Affordable compact SD / HD video switcher

MVS Series SD / HD switcher with 32 inputs and 16 outputs

Compact and well-designed, the MVS-3000 production switcher is ideally suited for production studios, stadiums, houses of worship, and OB vehicles requiring multiple inputs in a limited space. The switcher comes with sophisticated capabilities such as 2x mix effects (M/E), 4x keyers per M/E, each with the MVS high-performance chroma key, 2.5D resizers, colour correction, and more. With the standard multi-viewer output, you save space on additional monitoring, enabling a reduction in your total system cost.

Advanced control panel

The control panel incorporates an attractive black design with OLED mnemonic displays for optimal visibility. Its operation is as user-friendly and intuitive as you expect of the MVS family. The self-contained 4RU processor offers simple configuration, and is a logical choice for small production facilities that have limited installation space but refuse to compromise on quality.


New control panel for convenient operability

The MVS-3000 switcher features an ICP-3000 control panel. The matt-black panel is designed for easy operation in a fixed configuration. The design is based on the proven CCP style, and experienced operators will feel instantly at home. Additionally, OLED source name displays and RGB colour source buttons are included for optimal visibility and great operability.

Creative M/E functionality

The MVS-3000 is a two-mix effect (M/E) switcher with four keyers on each bus. A variety of background transitions are available to suit any program requirements and these include; Mix, Wipe, Non-additive mix, super mix, and FM clip.

Separate from the main fader, each keyer includes its own auto-transition controls, which allow users to insert or remove keys individually with independent wipes and dissolves. For further flexibility, each keyer also offers chromakeying and colour vector keying, eliminating restrictions of selectable key types.

By providing a key priority selection it is possible to give any keyer a higher or lower priority giving operators complete freedom in the key selection and which key sits in front of the other in the image plane.

Multi-program mode

Each M/E bus in the MVS system can be configured to operate in multi-program mode. This facility provides four independent program outputs on each M/E. Each separate program O/P can then be configured with any combination of M/E keyers. In addition to the expanded program O/Ps, clean and key as well as M/E PVW signals are still produced.

2 resizers per M/E bank and 2.5D DME

A powerful resizer function is provided that gives simple 2.5D DME effects for four keyers in the MVS-3000. With adjustable parameters such as size, position, and aspect, as well as mosaic and defocus effects, this functionality is very useful for optimizing the on-screen composition. All these effects can be created without the use of an optional DME, bringing great advantages for both simple operations and minimized system cost.

Colour correction for each input and AUX output

In order to correct for any colour errors in the incoming signals, each input has a primary RGB colour corrector. In addition, each aux bus output also has an identical colour corrector circuit. This is useful for correcting the colour balance on in-vision monitors.

An enhanced frame memory system

The MVS-3000 provides an internal high-capacity frame store with the ability to handle both individual images (stills) and animation sequences (clips) with embedded audio support. The frame memory system supports eight-channel playback from onboard RAM storage, and images can be imported via USB connection or a real-time backup using an external video store. Individual frame memory images or animation sequences can be instantly viewed and recalled via the touch-screen menu operation.

Two-channel multi-viewer system

The MVS-3000 provides multi-viewer outputs directly from the main processor chassis. This cuts down on the need for expensive external multi-viewers. Each multi-viewer output can be set in either 10- or 4-way split operation, and signals are delegated to each separate pane accordingly. The multi-viewer also supports switcher name and border tally indicators.
