Videonics Video Switcher - Video Mixer - Videonics MX-1

$ 489.99



The Videonics MX-1 Digital Video Mixer is a four-input video production switcher, mixer, frame synchronizer/TBC (Time Base Correc-tor) and special effects generator. Cut, wipe, dissolve between any of four video inputs -- or use any of over 210 digital video effects. Frame synchronizer and time base corrector (TBC) insures clean transitions. Dual-field, infinite-window TBC makes output rock-solid, even if inputs have faulty time base. Unique preview screen shows miniature copies of all four inputs so you can work with just one or two monitors. Effects include freeze, black and white, negative, mosaic, paint, flip, more. Chroma key and compose features, audio mix, more. Model MX-1, NTSC (PAL model available).
