Confident switching for live events with enhanced PGM/PST Modes
You can preview the video to be output next and then output it with a cross dissolve transition by pressing the OFF button which behaves as a “TAKE” button when in any of the PGM/PST Modes. Version 3.0 offers a two programs/two previews mode and a three programs/one preview mode option for the XS-84H as well as a two programs/one preview for the XS-84H and XS-83H.
You can display a guide on the preview output picture to confirm the position and size of the video to be output next. The width and color of the border can be changed. The guide can also be set to be “Inside” or “Outside” the viewable area to suit the operator’s preferences.
Switch multiple outputs at the same time (Version 3.0)
This can be done by two ways.
- Output link function: You can match any two output buses together switch them simultaneously.
- Double Tap Transition: You can use the double tap mode for the transition operation to pre-select the next source and switch multiple outputs at the same time.
Bezel compensation function changes the zoom and position of the output picture to make the picture look more continuous across multiple screens when using SPAN, ROTATION or 4K Modes.
Up to four BMP images can be imported into the unit from a USB flash drive and assigned to an input channel*. In Version 3.0, still-images can be captured directly from a live video source**. This is ideal for displaying a school or company logo while in standby with no inputs connected.
*The maximum supported resolution of the still-image is 1900×1200.
**HDCP supported. Other operations cannot be performed when capturing. The captured images cannot be saved in a USB flash drive.
Control of Power ON/OFF an external device via HDbaseT
Sending a RS-232 command via HDbaseT can turn an external device’s power on or off.
Powerful multi-screen processing capabilities
The XS Series Version 3.0 offers twenty three different operation modes for an incredible number of possible applications where the XS Series can be used both in live events and meeting room applications. The XS Series also offers smooth mode switching so multiple modes can be used in the same environment and make maximum use of multiscreen set-ups. Event / System Designers can setup screens to seamlessly switch between a matrix mode showing up to four independent sources and then stretch a single source across those same screens.
- MATRIX MODE - Switch at the matrix mode
- SPAN MODE - Split the screen
- ROTATION MODE - Flip the picture
- MULTI MODE - Display in 2/3/4 windows with PinP
- 4K MODE - Switch a 4k video
- DISSOLVE MODE - Switch the picture seamlessly
- PGM/PST MODES - Switch the picture seamlessly to 1, 2 or 3 destinations
Dissolve transition and PGM/PST mode allows switching the video from OUTPUT1 seamlessly, it also supports for events operation.
*To avoid the interruption of the output signal when changing the mode, OUTPUT 1 SYNC should be set to ON.
Multi-mode allows configuration of multiple PinP (picture in picture) insets that can be resized, repositioned, switched and can also be hidden as needed. An amazing variety of multi-screen video configurations can be created using the XS-Series' powerful video processing capabilities.
*Changing window size individually for each output is not possible.
