Marshall Intros New Quad-Viewer For Viewing and Switching HD SDI Signals

Marshall Electronics has released a new quad-viewer and switcher that allows users to view up to four 3G HD-SDI video signals in resolutions up to 1920x1080p, and then easily switch between the inputs to select a single view for output.

The new Marshall VMV-402-SH is ideal for broadcasters that want to add more cameras to a production and seamlessly switch between the different camera feeds. It includes an embedded processor that converts signals from input sources to match the native resolution of monitors, flat panel displays and projectors. The unit provides one SDI output and one HDMI output, with user-selectable output settings up to 4K2K 60Hz (HDMI output). There are additional available options for output adjustment—including brightness, contrast, hue and saturation.

The Marshall VMV-402-SH is pre-programmed with five default quad-view layouts and supports tally function when using the quad-view output. The easy-access, front-facing buttons illuminate to let users know which video source is currently selected. The unit can also be controlled through IR remote control, RS-232 over USB and Ethernet.

Packaged in a lightweight, compact frame, the Marshall VMV-402-SH is a great option for any control room that requires multiple video inputs to be displayed on a single screen.
