Including the Hi res input board / 2 HD-SDI inputs and DVI output.
he Indigo Audio-Video Mixer from Grass Valley is an advanced audio-video mixer designed for use in live-presentation environments. It offers a complete set of tools for controlling multiple analog or digital audio and video sources. Despite its robust tool set and ability to manage complex tasks, this unit has been designed to fit any skill level. Its menu-driven touch-screen interface can access powerful presets to get a new operator up and running in minutes. Presets can also be custom programmed and recalled later for even faster operation.
Numerous 2D and 3D transition effects can be selected and saved with other layout data in the unit's storage banks. It also supports (2) high-resolution and (2) SD luminance chroma or pattern keys. By combining these features with the basic time-line sequencing in the mixer's E-MEM preset storage banks, you can achieve a virtually limitless array of custom effects.
This unit supports (8) stereo audio input channels from digital and balanced or unbalanced analog sources. Each audio channel has a four-band parametric equalizer and may be controlled by a motor-driven fader. The mixer can also provide phantom power for up to (4) microphones. Moreover, it can operate in audio-follow-video mode and automatically fade audio up or down when its associated video source is taken to program. Delay tracking automatically delays audio to coincide with any delays in video to ensure lip synchronization.
This model comes standard with a high-resolution card installed that can simultaneously process multiple sources.
All-In-One AV Mixer
The Indigo audio/video mixer offers a complete feature set for controlling multiple analog or digital video and audio sources. With a high-resolution card installed, the mixer can simultaneously process multiple sources: 12 standard definition (SD) sources, one scaled from SD to high definition (HD), and two selected from HD video or computer inputs. It also upconverts to HD and downconverts to SD and even simulcasts live SD and HD output.
Fits Any Skill Level
The Indigo audio/video mixer is simple enough for anyone to use. While providing full production-mixer capabilities, its menu-driven, touch-screen interface can access powerful presets to get a new operator up and running in minutes. Operators can also customize these presets and save them for recall.
Video Processing & Effects
The Indigo audio/video mixer features numerous 2D and 3D transition effects that you can modify and save, along with all other layout data, into its E-MEM preset storage banks. The Indigo audio/video mixer features more than 100 2D and 3D modifiable transition effects. It also supports two HD and two SD luminance, chroma, or pattern keys. Combining these features with the basic timeline sequencing in the mixer's E-MEM preset storage banks provides a limitless array of custom effects.
Advanced Audio Mixing
Supporting eight stereo audio input channels from a selection of digital and balanced or unbalanced analog sources, each Indigo audio channel has a four-band parametric equalizer and may be controlled by a motor-driven fader. The mixer also provides phantom power for up to four microphones. And it can operate in audio-follow-video mode, automatically fading audio up or down when its associated video source is taken to program.
High In Value, Affordability
The Indigo audio/video mixer offers a number of economic benefits. Its competitive price, expansive functionality, and feature set ensure that you will no longer require separate often more expensive production switchers and audio panels to get the job done. Coupled with the platform's ease-of-use features, this high-function design minimizes the number of operators necessary to deliver powerful, highly professional presentations for corporate, educational, concert, sporting, convention center, house of worship, and other production events.
Automated Playback, Device Control
The Indigo audio/video mixer's integration of machine control automates functions through memory presets that have traditionally required a dedicated operator. You can control external devices via RS-422 or Ethernet connections using GPI, BVW, or AMP protocols.
