Anything in, anything out with FSN PlusPAK


Because contemporary presentations are more complex than single screen, single output, single format shows, Barco introduced PlusPAK, a new configuration package for the FSN series switcher.

Designed for the needs of Live Events

The FSN series is a new high-resolution, 3G ready, switcher that combines advanced multi-format production and presentation switching in one highly integrated unit. By seamlessly integrating multiple video and computer graphics formats on a common platform, the FSN series provides a streamlined package that's modular, easy to operate, and easy on your budget.

Designed for the presentation needs of the events market, PlusPAK comprises four components - a new universal output card, a new multiviewer, a digital video effects card and new software capable of controlling 2.5 M/Es. With one button, users can toggle the M/E bank between M/E 1 and M/E 2, providing full access to the system's 2.5 M/Es and five keyers. When combined with the FSN series' plug-in 8-channel native input card and 2-channel universal input card, PlusPAK solidifies the FSN's position as a versatile "anything in, anything out" switching system.

With up to 16 cross converter/up/down scalers, an integrated 16-channel Multiviewer and four DVE channels, the FSN places serious input and output capabilities at the user's fingertips in a single 6RU chassis.
