Connect up to 4
Independent Cameras

With 4 independent HDMI inputs, you can connect up to 4 high quality consumer video cameras. Video cameras with HDMI outputs are dramatically better quality than simple webcam cameras as they use higher quality lenses plus have much better low light sensitivity. All connected sources will re‑sync to the switcher if they operate at different video standards, which means all inputs just work and you can handle unknown equipment if you are visiting new venues or locations. Because cameras with HDMI often support interchangeable lenses, you can change to wide angles lenses for wide shots and zoom lenses for closeups.

Imagine using the low light capability of professional cameras for theater production and music videos!
