Video and audio switching
Both video and audio can be mixed with the MCS-8M, so there is no need for an external audio mixer. The MCS-8M features the same audio mixing features as the very popular Anycast Station.
The MCS-8M provides 8 video inputs and 4 outputs and operates in either HD or SD mode. It is easy to mix video equipment and computer sources with HD-SDI and DVI interfaces. Features include single channel frame memory, input synchronisation and freeze function for each source.
This function splits the screen into ten or four windows to show multiple images on a single monitor. There is no need for an external device and saves on monitoring space.
Integrated M/E, key and aux mix functions
The MCS-8M incorporates one mix-effects bus with a single key plus the ability for aux mixing. The high specified keyer operates in a number of key modes, including self, split, auto select, linear, pattern, auto chromakey and border (flat colour). Keyer transition allows for cut, mix, standard wipe patterns and transition rate settings.
3D feature for mixing two 3D cameras
The MCS-8M features a 3D mode that is ideally suited for small 3D productions, supporting two live 3D cameras. 3D functions include l/r link cut, mix and side-by-side output.
6 channel audio mixer
