The AW-HS50 is a sub-compact, cost-effective half-rack width HD/SD live switcher offering four HD/SD-SDI and one DVI-D inputs as standard, as well as a built-in MultiViewer. With a 10-bit frame-synchronizer for each input, one-channel of up-conversion, two HD/SD-SDI outputs and one scalable DVI-D output, the AW-HS50 offers powerful, broadcast-quality switching capabilities for mobile production, AV facilities, small studios, and event video. As a “50 Series” component, the AW-HS50 provides IP links to the AW-RP50 remote camera controller, enabling automatic selection of the currently controlled P/T/Z camera video on the switcher’s AUX bus.
Five Inputs/Three Outputs
• Five inputs : Four SDI inputs and one DVI-D input come standard.• Three outputs : Two SDI outputs and one DVI-D output come standard.
The AW-HS50 supports a variety of HD/SD formats, including 1080/24PsF, as standard. System frequency is 59.94 Hz/50 Hz/24 Hz switchable. This makes it ideal for digital cinema production and worldwide operation.
Frame Synchronizers on All Inputs
A Frame Synchronizer is embedded in all inputs. This enables asynchronous video signals to be switched without glitches.
Up-Converter, Dot by Dot and Video Processing
The AW-HS50 is equipped with an SD/HD up-converter function for two inputs (SDI IN 3/SDI IN 4), and a dot by dot function that can be used for P-in-P display of HD images from SD footage without degradation. A video processing function with brightness, pedestal level, saturation, and color phase correction is also provided for four inputs.
Versatile Effect Functions
• Transitions : 13 wipe patterns and mixes.• The built-in key function lets you select from linear, luminance and chroma keying.• One P-in-P bus and one Aux bus are included. A Bus transition function (P-in-P bus and Aux bus switching effect) enables Mix transitions.
Frame Memory (2 Screens)
Two 8 bit still images can be saved in Frame Memory, and used as bus footage. The still images can also be transferred from a PC over a LAN network.
Simple and Flexible Control Buttons
Five crosspoint buttons in each A bus and B bus (for a maximum of 10 with the Shift function), a Cut button, a P-in-P button, a Key button and an FTB button allow direct control with this simple panel layout. A slide lever also provides easy control of transitions, P-in-P, and Key Fade In/Out. Various functions can also be assigned to two user buttons (for a maximum of four with the Shift function) for one-touch operation.
Up to 10 Split-Screen, MultiViewer Display
The built-in MultiViewer Display function can simultaneously display various images, including program (PGM), preview (PVW) and input signals, on a single monitor. The screen may be split into 4, 5a/5b, 6a/6b, 9 and 10a/10b sections.
On-Screen Display (OSD)
The OSD increases operating ease by outputting setting menus to a monitor screen. (SDI OUT 2 or DVI OUT only)
Audio Level Meter
This function displays the level of the embedded audio signals (group 1/1ch, 2ch) superimposed on the SDI input signal.
Linking with a Remote Camera Controller
By linking the AW-HS50 to the optional AW-RP50 Remote Camera Controller with an IP connection* over a network, a number of remote operations become possible, such as operating the optional AW-HE50S or AW-HE120 HD Integrated Camera. The AW-HS50 and AW-RP50 have a unified design and half-rack size, so they can be mounted side by side in a single rack.
* Only one AW-RP50 can be connected to the switcher via an IP connection. And connection is not possible with a public network.
AW-RP50 and AW-HS50 Linking Functions
• The setting data (iris, gain, etc.) for the AW-HE50S or AW-HE120 HD Integrated Camera can be displayed on a split screen using the switcher's Aux output or MultiViewer output.• The switcher's On-Air tally data can be sent to the Camera Controller.• The switcher's bus footage (Aux, PVW, P-in-P, Key-F) can be selected at the Camera Controller. Switching of the bus footage can also be linked to the camera selection.• The switcher's MultiViewer Display can also be changed at the Camera Controller to a full-screen display of the camera image (Aux bus only). This supports the camera's Focus Assist function.• The Pan/Tilt lever and Zoom button on the Camera Controller can be used to change switcher parameters.
