Offering breakthrough multiformat performance, Kahuna is the world's first production switcher to enable simultaneous standard and high definition operations in the same mainframe on the same control surface.
Powered by Snell's exclusive FormatFusion signal processing technology, Kahuna breaks the video format barrier enabling seamless real-time mixing of SD and HD video, in any format, without compromise or loss of quality. Designed for live mobile, studio and news production, Kahuna offers a familiar user interface while delivering superior multiformat picture quality in busy, fastpaced, live production environments. Never before has such advanced and innovative signal processing technology been combined in a single, versatile production switcher.
Kahuna offers a clear and planned transition path in upgrading to new media technologies. The switcher can be installed initially with SD only capability and later updated for multiformat operation through a simple software upgrade. Kahuna allows a gradual, controlled transition to HDTV, putting the broadcast customer in total control of when to transition to the next generation of television technology.
