Sony's MCS-8M is a multi-format video switcher with a built-in audio mixer. The compact MCS-8M offers a great range of features at an affordable price. The switcher includes many preset wipe patterns, a built-in multi-viewer, frame memory with the ability to import still images via USB port, an input frame synchroniser and freeze function for each source ,a 3D mode function and a six-channel audio mixer.

The MCS-8M is the ideal content creation tool for live event programming with it's intuitive design and ease of operation. The switcher is perfect for small broadcast operations, product promotions, event and live staging, music clip creation, and all types of business activity including conferences and seminars.

Key Features:

Video and audio switching - Both video and audio can be mixed with the MCS-8M, so there is no need for an external audio mixer. The MCS-8M features the same audio mixing features as the very popular Anycast Station.

Multi-format capability - The MCS-8M provides 8 video inputs and 4 outputs and operates in either HD or SD mode. It is easy to mix video equipment and computer sources with HD-SDI and DVI interfaces. Features include single channel frame memory, input synchronisation and freeze function for each source.

Multi-viewing function - This function splits the screen into ten or four windows to show multiple images on a single monitor. There is no need for an external device and saves on monitoring space.

Integrated M/E, key and aux mix functions - The MCS-8M incorporates one mix-effects bus with a single key plus the ability for aux mixing. The high specified keyer operates in a number of key modes, including self, split, auto select, linear, pattern, auto chromakey and border (flat colour). Keyer transition allows for cut, mix, standard wipe patterns and transition rate settings.

3D feature for mixing two 3D cameras - The MCS-8M features a 3D mode that is ideally suited for small 3D productions, supporting two live 3D cameras. 3D functions include l/r link cut, mix and side-by-side output.

6 channel audio mixer - The MCS-8M features the same 6 Channel audio mixing as the very popular Anycast Station, with audio delay, 48KHz/24bit processing, real channel faders and a master fader.

DME Channel - The system allows for a range of background transitions and DME Wipes, including cut, mix, standard wipe patterns, transition rate settings and DME wipe patterns such as PinP, Slide, Defocus and Mosaic.
