The sub-compact; multi-format live HD/SD AW-HS50 switcher offers 10-bit processing; four HD/SD-SDI inputs and one HD DVI-D input; as well as a built-in MultiViewer; Chroma Keyer; Aux Bus; 1080/29.94PsF support; and more.


Ideal for mobile production; AV facilities; event video and more; the half-rack width HS50's built-in MultiViewer allows users to view four; nine; or 10 images on a single display — significantly reducing the cost; size; and weight of a complete HD production system. The adjustable MultiViewer outputs can also be used to provide a multi-image large-screen presentation display. Other advanced functions include dedicated hardware for picture-in-picture (PinP) with dissolve transitions; switchable upconversion; color correction; a chroma/linear keyer plus a downstream keyer (DSK); auto or manual video transitions; wipe and PinP preset memories; and frame memories.


As a key component in Panasonic's first complete Internet Protocol (IP) production system; the HS50 also offers an IP link to the new AW-RP50 remote camera controller. This link enables remote switching of the remote controlled camera video on the HS50's AUX bus; and other unique functions The AW-HS50 has built-in; switchable 10-bit frame synchronizers on each input; ensuring reliable; glitch-free switching even with non-synchronous sources such as remote camera feeds; small camcorders; and computer graphics.


The HS50 has four HD/SD-SDI inputs and one HD DVI-D input; two HD/SD-SDI outputs and one scalable DVI-D output. Additional standard features include an on-screen display (OSD) for viewing switcher settings; GPI input; camera tally outputs; an Ethernet control interface; 4-pin XLR 12VDC input; and an AUX Bus for a versatile production workflow.
