The Panasonic Compact HD/SD Live Switcher offers 10-bit processing capacity and comes with 4 HD/SD-SDI inputs and 1 HD DVI-D input with 2 HD/SD-SDI outputs and 1 scalable DVI-D output. It also features a Chroma Keyer, GPI input, camera tally outputs, an Ethernet control interface, 4-pin XLR 12VDC input, and an AUX Bus for a versatile production workflow.

Providing a multi-image large-screen presentation display, the built-in multi-viewer allows you to view 4, 9, or 10 images on a single display, thereby minimising the number of displays required. In addition to offering advanced functions like dedicated hardware for picture-in-picture with dissolve transitions, switchable up-conversion, colour correction, the HD/SD Live Switcher also includes a chroma/linear keyer, a downstream keyer (DSK), auto or manual video transitions, wipe and PiP preset memories, and frame memories. The half-rack width switcher provides support for 1080/59.94i, 1080/23.98PsF, 1080/24PsF, and 720/59.94p resolutions. Being compact in size 209.5 x 66.68 x 176.28 mm, the HD/SD Live Switcher is ideal for use in mobile video production and AV facilities.

Offering an IP link with the AW-RP50N remote camera controller, the complete internet protocol production system enables remote switching of the remote controlled camera video on the HS50's AUX bus. Built-in switchable 10-bit frame synchronisers on each input ensure reliable, glitch-free switching even with non-synchronous sources such as remote camera feeds, small camcorders, and computer graphics. An on-screen display allows you to view the switcher settings.
