Ideal for mobile production, AV facilities, event video and more, the half-rack width HS50's built-in MultiViewer allows users to view four, nine, or 10 images on a single display-significantly reducing the cost, size and weight of a complete HD production system.

The adjustable MultiViewer outputs can also be used to provide a multi-image large-screen presentation display. Other advanced functions include dedicated hardware for picture-in-picture (PinP) with dissolve transitions, switchable upconversion, color correction, a chroma/linear keyer plus a downstream keyer (DSK), auto or manual video transitions, wipe and PinP preset memories, and frame memories.

As a key component in Panasonic's first complete Internet Protocol (IP) production system, the HS50 also offers an IP link to the new AW-RP50 remote camera controller. This link enables remote switching of the remote controlled camera video on the HS50's AUX bus, and other unique functions The AW-HS50 has built-in, switchable 10-bit frame synchronizers on each input, ensuring reliable, glitch-free switching even with non-synchronous sources such as remote camera feeds, small camcorders, and computer graphics.

The HS50 has four HD/SD-SDI inputs and one HD DVI-D input, two HD/SD-SDI outputs and one scalable DVI-D output. Additional standard features include an on-screen display (OSD) for viewing switcher settings, GPI input, camera tally outputs, an Ethernet control interface, 4-pin XLR 12V DC input, and an AUX Bus for a versatile production workflow.

HDMI signal from my BD/DVD player, etc. is converted into a DVI signal and input into the switcher. But the picture will not display.

HS50 does not support HDCP system. So HDMI output from DVD player cannot be input into HS50.
