The DVS-9000 has been designed to compliment the MVS-8000 to provide a complete family of live production switchers. This “one family” approach offers content producers unseen levels of performance, flexibility and integration. Compared with conventional SD production switchers the DVS-9000 series offers greater system flexibility, a range of enhanced features and a more compact design.
Its seamless integration with the MVS-8000 series allows you to configure a mixed definition set-up and provides a smooth migration path from SD to HD or multiformat operations.
The DVS-9000 is available in 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5 or 4 M/E sizes and can accept up to 80 primary inputs and provides up to 56 assignable outputs. It is supplied complete with a 444 frame 8 O/P stills store. An internal DME can also be integrated with the system, providing four channels of non-linear effects.
Large scale productions
With four full function keyers, as standard, in each M/E you should never run out of keying possibilities. This combined with the maximum of 80 I/P’s makes this system able to cope with the most demanding of applications. What’s more when integrated with the 4 channel internal DME you still have all 80 I/P’s available for cameras, VTR’s etc.
Migration path to multiformat operation
Due to it’s modularity the system can be expanded as needs arise. Additional M/E’s and control panels can be added and with the addition of an MVS-8000 processor you can expand into HD and multiformat operations as required. This migration path thus protects your initial investment for many years to come.
The control network can be expanded with up to four control panels and two processors, for a single studio system. With dynamically assignable M/E’s a central processor can thus be controlled by to four control panels. This solution is ideal for small studio or edit suite complexes. Additionally the two processors can be configured for redundancy or multi-format operation. This can provide a significant cost saving over the traditional approach of having a dedicated, and often underused, resource in each studio or edit suite.
Multi Programme Delivery for the Anycast World
Each M/E is capable of working in multi-program mode where up to four configurable O/P’s are available per M/E. This coupled with automatic key substitution and switchable 4:3 / 16:9 operation per M/E bank gives you the capacity to provide many different programme streams from a single switcher system.
Customisable control panel layout
The DVS-9000 series utilises the same “highly acclaimed” control panel as the MVS-8000. These panels are available in a variety of sizes and operators have the ability to change the layout to best suit their needs. Once installed the layout can be simply modified, or additional facilities added as needs arise.
Compact Control Panel
In addition to the layout-free control panel two compact control panels are available. These two panels (1 or 2 M/E) offer the same operational features as the large panel in a much smaller, and rack mountable, size. These 12 crosspoint button panels are ideal for small production systems or, if combined with the large panel, providing remote M/E operation.
Maximising system useage
With the availability of the system manager software (BZPS-8000) the DVS-9000 system flexibility is increased one stage further. This software package allows for remote control of all switcher functions, an interface for remote maintenance and an off-line setup facility. You do not therefore need to tie up valuable studio time setting up the switcher prior to the next programme.
