    Connect to a PC via USB
    The world's first USB Video/Audio Class supported AV mixer. Simply connect like a Web camera to enable easy live streaming.

    Intuitive Operation with Dual Touch Monitors

    Connect a PC to the RGB connector for various applications such as presentation, slide shows and movie playback.

    Full Digital Audio Mixing
    Two mono and five stereo audio inputs (total of 12Ch) are mixed with full digital audio processing.

The "Audio Follow" function enables the audio to fade from one source to another as the video source changes.

      Photolease is an independent finance company who have specialised in leasing equipment to the imaging industry for over twenty five years.


      1. Banking facilities left available for special projects and unforeseen expenses.
      2. Small initial outlay usually amounting to just one months rental.
      3. Payment can be spread over a period of one to four years dependent upon value and type of equipment.
      4. A single payment at the end of the lease guarantees retention of the asset for the remainder of its working life.
      5. If you want to sell the equipment after the lease has ended you will receive the sale proceeds.
      6. Rentals are fully tax deductible.
      7. Cash flow is protected and the asset earns revenue in payment of the lease.
      8. No need to be VAT registered.



      What happens at the end of the lease?

      We will extend the agreement indefinitely on payment of a single further monthly rental. After that you can keep the equipment and will never have to pay any more.

      Isn't leasing just for companies who can't afford the cash?
      No. Companies who lease do so because they know that there are better uses for their spare funds.

      Is leasing only relevant for large acquisitions?
      No. Transactions of all sizes are completed using lease agreements. You can lease equipment worth as little as £1000.

      Do I have to insure the equipment?
      Yes. It is your responsibility to keep the equipment insured for all risks for the term of the agreement.

      What happens if the equipment becomes faulty?
      You have the protection of the manufacturers and/or suppliers warranty. Responsibility for repairs out of warranty are yours.

      What about VAT?
      Rentals attract VAT. This can be reclaimed if you are VAT registered. Please check your VAT status, or consult your accountant

      What can be included in the agreement?
      Leasing enables the whole solution to be financed. This can include hardware, software, installation, training and warranties

      Can the equipment be upgraded?
      Yes. The equipment can be upgraded during the course of the agreement. Speak to us for further details.

      Is it possible to settle the agreement early?
      Yes. However we always recommend you speak to your accountant to make sure it does not create an adverse tax position.

      Is there a penalty for settling early?
      No. If you clear the account before it has run it’s full term then there is a reduction in the full amount payable.

      Can I pay a deposit to lower my monthly outlay?
      Yes. However you would need to contact us to find the correct figures based on your deposit amount.
