Presentation Switches

Sometimes you need to fill a space with multiple images like the keynote session of a conference. In addition to monitors, projection screens and video cameras from Aviva rentals, you are going to need a presentation switcher. Presentation switchers are advanced video processing and presentation control systems. These systems provide source selection, advanced windowing features, seamless switching, video effects and integrated control for professional video presentations. Presentation switchers can support a wide variety of show configurations.

Extron IN1508

The Extron IN1508 is an eight input, A/V presentation switcher that accepts and scales a wide range of video signals to a common, high resolution output rate. It can accommodate two composite video, two S-video, one standard or high definition component video, one DVI-D, and two RGB computer-video sources. Eight input stereo audio switching is also provided with independent gain and attenuation control. The ability to accept multiple inputs of varying formats along with many other convenient and useful features make the IN1508 a true presentation switcher that is an ideal centerpiece for mid-sized A/V systems.

The IN1508 features a high performance scaling engine with the ability to scale standard definition video, high definition video, and computer-video signals up or down in resolution. With the IN1508, only a single RGBHV connection to the display is required, resulting in cost savings due to reduced installation time, cabling, and system programming. The IN1508 outputs RGB or component video output with selectable output rates from VGA (640x480) to WUXGA (1920x1200) resolution, as well as HDTV at 720p, 1080i, and 1080p/60.

Panasonic AG-AC90 AVCCAM

The Panasonic AG-AC90 AVCCAM Handheld Camcorder features 1/4.7" 3MOS sensors, with 2.19MP each, to capture Full HD 1920x1080 resolution video. Variable frame rates record HD video at 60p, 60i, 30p, and 24p. The camera's fixed lens has a 12x zoom ratio, up to f/1.5 brightness, a 35mm equivalent of 29.8-357.6mm and manual control rings for focus, zoom and iris. In addition, Nano Surface Coating works to reduce ghosting and flare.

The AC90 includes; a five-axis image stabilizer that dramatically improves stabilization for hand-held shooting; a 4K2K pixel shifting technology for a sharper image; and an Intelligent Zoom Auto that provides seamless digital zooming up to 25X magnification while minimizing decreases in resolution. The standard zoom length is 12X.

The AG-AC90 has two SD card slots for expanded memory or simultaneous recording to both cards for an instant back-up. A five-axis image stabilizer improves stabilization for handheld shooting, and 4x pixel shifting technology helps to create a sharper image. An Intelligent 25x digital zoom function makes automatic adjustments of edge, gradation and detail.

Professional AVCCAM HD recording modes include PS mode, which records 1080/60p at 28 Mbps. Additionally, PH mode averages 21-24 Mbps, and HA mode clocks in at approximately 17 Mbps. Finally, for extended recording times, HE mode uses approximately 6 Mbps. The AG-AC90 is compatible with Panasonic's ultra high-speed UHS-1 series of memory cards, as well as SDXC and SDHC cards.

In addition to the built-in microphone, two XLR audio inputs provide an interface for professional grade, external microphones. Audio Channel 1 and Channel 2 feature individual level controls and input selection.

The AG-AC90 can record 1080 resolution at 60p, 60i, 30p and 24p; in addition to standard definition 480/60i in 60 Hz.
