**Input cards required, but not included.**
The SE-900 is a two-piece eight input SD switcher designed for flexibility and ease-of-use. The SE-900 accepts any combination of up to eight input boards for DV, SDI, DVI, YUV, S-Video and composite video. It can also store 2 logos for output display, and has a CG (Character Generation) overlay channel. A user can apply CG software (like the Datavideo CG-100) as a DSK and still retain access to the multiple outputs of the SE-900 switcher.
The rack mounted processing unit of the SE-900 is connected to the control panel by an RS-232 cable. Datavideo has prepared several SE-900 kits with various input cards included, but you may choose any configuration that you prefer for the eight slots available.
Card options include external synch and a chromakey card that allows cuts between two cameras and two backgrounds. As with all Datavideo products, the SE-900 works on 12vDC or local power.
Available add-on boards
900-SDI: SDI input card
900-SDI-O: SDI output card
900-YUV: composite, component and S-Video input card
900-DVK: chromakey processor card
900-DV25: DV + miniXLR audio input card
Built-in frame synchronizer and TBC for each channel, no external gen-lock is required for flicker free switching between all 8 inputs in any format.
Voice synch - audio delayed to minus 17 frames
Picture-in-Picture (two fixed sizes, able to move from off-screen to off-screen)
Joystick control can work with either RGB color correction (white balance) or position for the PIP or Mosaic effect
Multi-image preview output allows the producer to monitor all live sources as well as Program & Next source
SDI overlay card pre-installed - use with any SDI-based character generator with a downstream keyer (DSK)
Easy titling with Datavideo's CG-100 Character Generator
Color processor - white balance for each input. Last settings saved at power down
Digital effects- Over 50 digital effects (including 15 transitions with borders) with six speeds, plus 6 special effects
Logo overlay included - use 24-bit RGB 96x24 bitmap image or input source
Eight tally outputs, red/yellow LED tally lights included (can directly control tally lights on the TLM-404H)
Audio may be embedded in the SDI stream
GPI input trigger controls up to 10 pre-programmed effects in sequence
One optional chromakey channel - can accept four foreground inputs, four background inputs and four chromakey settings. Internal chromakey switcher allows for glitch-free switching between the four sources and backgrounds. Background and foreground selection is through the inputs to the switcher
Separate control panel and 19" rack-mountable CPU
Each input card offers a Composite video preview output, irrespective of the input type
Includes an audio delay function as well as a DV/SDI audio embedder for output. Additionally, each DV and SDI video input has an audio de-embedder which provides dual channel balanced audio output
The latest firmware revision (1.4) allows the SDI input on the SE-900 to have a time code display feature
Input: up to 8 inputs with a choice of SDI, DV, DVI, component (Y:U:V), S-Video (Y/C) & composite
Output: SDI, DV, YUV, S-Video and/or Composite. 2 multi-image preview outputs. (1) Normal is the next source preview. Pressing the "Preview" key shows the next effect. (2) Multi-image output - composite and component video.
