Applications

Live Production Studio

Content creation is a challenge for many companies looking to more efficiently produce product presentations, town hall meetings, and trainings. The XS-62S makes it easy to create content with an all-in-one switching and audio mixing system that streamlines the production process.

The XS-62S is easy to use from either the front panel controls or remote control software from a PC or Mac. Programmable presets allow one-touch recall of preset camera positions and angles, and the audio auto mixer takes care of audio mixing in the background, so the operator can focus on switching video. The XS-62S is the perfect size for installation into small spaces and portable enough to be used in multiple areas of a corporate office or other facility.

Performance Venue / Church

XS-62S is the ideal solution for hotel meeting rooms and banquet halls, houses of worship and live performance venues. The XS-62S Matrix Mode makes it easy to send different content to 2 to 3 screen destinations, from a single switcher all while mixing program audio and controlling PTZ remote cameras.
PGM / PST Mode works as a traditional switcher complete with cross-dissolve switching and Aux bus delegation for sending different video to a secondary destination such as a presenter’s confidence monitor or additional presentation screens.
Performance venues will benefit greatly from the built-in auto mixing function. The auto-mixing function automatically balances incoming audio sources such as microphones from a discussion panel, making it easy for the operator. The XS-62S’s audio processing also includes advanced effects such as EQ, dynamics and delay for mixing of vocal speech along with music and other audio embedded in video sources. These effects will provide improved sound quality for streaming applications, recording and sound reinforcement.

Live Streaming and Video Conference

The XS-62S is also suitable for live streaming and web conferencing systems. In this type of application, you could be using multiple PTZ cameras and PCs. With the XS-62S this can easily be operated by a small team or even a single person. PTZ camera control eliminates the need for individual camera operators, since everything can be controlled from the XS-62S while video is being switched by the same operator. The XS-62S’s audio capabilities make it easy to connect 4 microphones, mixing audio from computers and other video sources.

*In order to do Live streaming with the XS-62S, will need to add an encoder device with an SDI or HDMI input, from a 3rd. party supplier.

Professional user interface

The professional broadcast quality crosspoint buttons are back lit with brightness control for use in bright daylight or dark performance spaces. A dedicated menu screen and volume knobs for adjusting audio are both easy to access from the front panel . The XS-62S is designed for direct control and intuitive operation for any events.

Switching mode

The XS - 62S has multiple switching modes to best suit the app

PGM / PST mode

PGM/PST Mode operates as a traditional video switcher complete with video compositions that enable grouping multiple images on one screen.
You can create compotitions by combining DSK for layering titles and graphics as well PinP inset of video. Compositions can be previewed before sending to Program on the Preview output and can be sent to Program by pressing the TAKE button.
PGM / PST Mode also has an available AUX bus making it possible to output different video from the PGM bus and PST bus to an additional destination screen.

DISSOLVE mode

Video switching and composition with cross dissolve to the PGM bus are possible in Dissolve Mode. Disolve Mode is easily operated from the front panel and is suitable for a system where the user directly operates the main unit in a meeting space or event.

The AUX bus is also available in Dissolve Mode, making it possible to output different video from the PGM bus and PST bus.

* PST bus output is the same as PGM bus output.

MATRIX mode

Individual video input signals can be output to three different destinations on three buses. This mode is effective for routing signals and is ideal for events and using multiple screens. Switching the video is with black flame.

Video composition

In addition to traditional Square or Rectangle shapes, the PinP function can select Circle, Heart or Diamond shapes. Cropping of PinP and adjusting of SPLIT center portion (Ver.2.0) are suitable for composition of vertically long screen of smart phone. With the DSK function, you can overlay titles, lyrics, logos etc on top of composited video.
Both luminance key (black / white) and chroma key (blue / green) fucntions are available.

Multi-view output

XS-62S can preview all six video inputs and two still images, PGM and PVW to a single preview monitor via the Multi-view output. In addition, you can display the menu on the Multi-view display, so you make setting changes without changing your focus from the preview display. From Ver. 2.5, exchanging PGM and PVW window and editing label name of IN1 to 6 are possible.

AUDIO

The XS-62S features a 18-channel audio mixer which includes four TRS jacks, RCA stereo Pair, plus audio de-embed from the six video inputs. From Ver. 2.5, a built-in audio effects library is packed with presets for common production scenarios including interviews, ambient sound recording, and eliminated wind noise when recording at field. Anyone can easily set up without audio knowledge.

Audio Mixer with preamp and dynamics (compressor)

The XS-62S powerful preamp and dynamics effects include a high-pass filter, gate, compressor, 3-band EQ, delay and ability to select audio follows video channel so audio passes through when a specific video source is selected. Solo bus is added from Ver.2.0. Dynamics can be adjusted from the onscreen menu or accessed through the powerful Remote-Control Software for Windows or Mac.

Auto mixing

The included Auto-Mixing function ensures the correct mix for multiple panel participants at conferences by automatically adjusting levels across all audio sources. A priority weighting assignment that is channel specific can be set giving the moderator or priority audio channel a higher volume level while using the Auto-Mixing function allowing the operator to focus on video switching and production.

Discrete Multi-channel Audio Embedding

Assign up to eight analog audio inputs a separate audio embed channel on SDI 1 and 2 outputs to ensure a separate mix pre-effect (dry) or post effect (wet) for correcting audio problems post live event. This feature is additionally useful for multi-language events to record the voice-over or language translation on its own audio channel its own audio channel to a separate master.
