Datavideo IBC2014 Lineup


Datavideo introduces a lot of new products on the upcoming IBC. From our newest line of switchers to the small but mighty TC-200, there’s new products to be found in almost all categories. In this press release, we will inform you about some of our most exciting new products.

Datavideo expands switcher line with the 2200 series!

The acclaimed Datavideo switcher line-up gets an exciting update! This 6 channel HD switcher sports some nifty built-in options!

Stand alone and hand carry
As with our profound 2800 series, the 2200 will come in two versions. The first is the standalone SE-2200 which consists of a 2U rack mounted mainframe and an external keypad. The second is the HS-2200, the very flexible and versatile hand carry version of the SE-2200. With a 17,3” built-in monitor and talkback/tally system, the HS-2200 is ready for use in the most rough environments. Even when running on an external battery!

Six channel HD/SD
SE-2200 is a solution that comes with great features such as 6x6 SDI genlocked Matrix, Dual PIP and built-in title overlay system that works with entry level Datavideo CG systems, or other graphics programmes. The ability to accept up to 6 HD-SDI and two HDMI signals, 6 HD-SDI assignable outputs and two HDMI multi-view outputs (one on HS-2200 because the internal screen uses the other one) makes it a very effective switcher.

Built in HDMI AV/Titles splitter
Our 2200 series switchers have built-in overlay splitters. This means that one of the HDMI inputs can be used with a laptop or PC with entry level Datavideo CG systems, or other graphics programmes. No more need for a chunky PC, and running a full battery operated workflow is another step closer!

TVS-1000, versatile and easy to use Virtual Studio solution from Datavideo

Datavideo introduces a very versatile, easy to use virtual studio solution. The virtual studio is a simple solution to create a computer generated backdrop, so that the viewer will think that the model is standing in a studio environment instead of a simple green screen. The backdrops are completely computer generated images, with support for numerous background images and support for downstream keyers like character generators and title overlays.


The TVS-1000 is trackless, so it will not adapt to the movement of the camera. Due to this, the end-user will not need expensive tracking equipment (like a digital jib, for instance) to use the TVS-1000. In the software, it is possible to zoom and pan into three phases. This will suggest that the virtual camera is moving.

The TVS-1000 software supports up to 6 layers, including a UV map, so it is possible to place a virtual desk or sofa on the virtual set. There is also support for background images, like a logo on the floor or a TV in the background, so you can customize your own virtual studio. There is no longer need for a separate recorder, as the TVS-1000 has a hard drive recorder built in. It even has a streaming encoder built in, so streaming your show to different content delivery networks like is very easy to set up!

The TVS-1000 will have support for virtual studio sets downloaded from, the marketplace for virtual studio sets. This online marketplace is currently under construction but will launch together with the TVS-1000. The TVS-1000 will be introduced on IBC, on the booth of Datavideo Technologies Europe B.V., hall 7, stand number D39.

Datavideo DAC-80 removes hum and buzz from ground loops

The DAC-80 is designed to remove hum and buzz created by ground loops. Normal voltage differences in the system grounding points between different pieces of equipment cause small AC power currents to flow in the shield of audio cables. Capacitance between a power transformer’s primary and secondary windings introduce signals to the circuit ground which will also create small current flows in the cable shield. Either of these problems will create hum in audio signals. DAC-80 breaks the inter-equipment ground path and greatly increases the rejection in the input circuits while remaining transparent to the audio signal.
