DVS9000 SD Production Switcher Processor. The DVS-9000 standard definition switcher is the latest generation of Sony's digital video switcher and DME family, and integrates perfectly with the MVS-8000, sharing the same control panels and control /data systems. The DVS-9000 can be configured from 2 to 4 M/E banks (1 to 2 M/E with the DVS-9000SF) in the processor, and COMES WITH 2M/E, 17 inputs, 24 outputs, frame memory and 2 power supplies. Multiple processors and panels may be connected on the same network, allowing the ultimate in resource sharing and mission-critical redundancy. Each M/E bank is full-featured and comes standard with 4 FineKey(tm) keyers with edge generators, 4 Chromakeyers and 14 dedicated wipe generators including 5 transition generators, 1 common and 4 local. Keyer features include Luminance, Linear, Chroma, Color Vector and Pattern Keys. Each keyer also has two independent mask generators. The DVS-9000 system can control up to 30 external devices, such as DDR, VTR or ESAM-II Audio consoles. The DVS-9000 system can also use up to 4 channels of internal 3D DME. Each DME channel includes video and key channels and can be equipped with option non-linear capability. The DVS system uses two 100 Megabit Ethernet connections on all key DVS and MVS components and Sony peripherals. These Ethernet connections are used for real-time control and data transfer. An optional network manager PC can be added to the data ethernet for access to available LAN/WAN systems facilitating the transfer of files for remote administrative tasks including status monitoring, software upgrades and configuration, as well as maintenance and facility management tasks. Image file transfers are also available for sharing graphics and titling resources. The optional frame memory will store up to 444 still frame images.
