One exclusive feature offered by the video switcher is MELite™,which allows a traditional AUX bus to transform into a functional Mix Effectswith cuts, mix, wipes, keys, and DVE including full preview. The MELite featureenables the HVS-2K engine to offer the production capabilities of a fullyfunctional 6 M/E switcher. MELite is the building block for more powerful, yeteasy-to-use features, such as upstream and downstream transition effects.Operators can deploy a MELite as a third M/E, transforming the switcher to a 3M/E switcher with a 3 M/E panel. Users can also add an additional 1 M/E controlpanel and allow a second operator to have the added power of a second fullyfunctional switcher in another location. The versatile, cost efficient HVS-2000gives operators the power of six Mix Effects for multiple, independent,on-stage monitor display control.
Another exclusive feature of FOR-A’s HVS-2000 isONStage™, which allows operators to have more power and creativity in theirvideo switching. ONStage is designed specifically for staging events, such ashouse of worship or corporate events where multiple image magnificationdisplays are used, each with independent transitions. The switcher mode allowsoperators to see mix, wipe, key and DVE changes with full preview controlconnected directly to the lever arm transition area.
With its FLEXaKEY™, unique feature, HVS-2000 operatorscan tailor their production needs by adding, moving, and multiplying key andDVE layers to traditional M/E or MELite resources. The HVS-2000 includes afour-channel media player capable of still image and clip store with memoryback-up, along with its panel memory system P-MEM™, which includes simple panelsnap shot recall of events, sequence and macro memory recalls.
