TV One announces the introduction of its latest addition to the TV One product family, the S2-108HD 8-input SD/HD-SDI Switcher. Capable of switching between eight separate inputs of SD-SDI or HD-SDI signals, this new unit addresses the constantly evolving needs of the Pro AV and Broadcast markets.
This 8-input and dual output SD/HD-SDI switcher has been primarily designed to work with the C2-2000 series of switcher/scalers and down converters as an optional Input Expansion Module to provide additional SD/HD-SDI inputs via BNC connectors. Like all current S2 series units that are available, it can connect to the C2-2000 series using an included OPTION interconnect cable and is fully integrated into the control system of the C2-2000 unit to become part of a single Multi-Format Seamless Switcher.
The S2-108HD can also be used as a standalone routing switcher and is fully compliant to SMPTE 292M and 259M. An automatic reclocking and equalization of the incoming signal is employed by the unit for HD-SDI sources from as far as 200m and SD-SDI sources from over 300m away.
It has two SD/HD-SDI outputs (on BNC’s) available that will both output the selected input source simultaneously and each input selector button on the front panel has a small LED light to signify which input has been selected for the output. This light will remain steady and constant when a recognised and accepted signal is connected and will begin to flash if the signal is not acceptable or the signal is lost. As well as using the Front Panel push buttons, the unit can also be controlled using an IR Remote Control and via RS-232.
The S2-108HD is housed in a desktop case and optional single or dual rackmount kits are available. With a recommended retail price of £850 (€1250) this unit is available to order now.
