Offering mixes, dissolves, keys and 2-D and 3-D effects, the Grass Valley Indigo AV Mixer combines video, high-resolution computer images and audio control in a single, compact unit.
The Indigo AV Mixer accepts analog and digital, standard- and high-definition (SD/HD) video and audio inputs, including embedded audio in SDI and DV streams, and high-resolution computer inputs. Indigo features internal seamless technology, allowing a variety of input resolutions to be scaled and mixed. Outputs are also available in multiple formats simultaneously, including DVI and SDI.
The functionality matches that of a broadcast production switcher, with E-MEM effects memory, digital video effects, keyers allowing a number of picture-in-picture elements to be layered, color correction on every input, and mixes, dissolves and wipes between any source.
Complementing the video switcher is an audio mixer with motorized faders, which are capable of mixing multiple audio sources, with audio-follow-video and automatic audio delay to compensate for video processing.
