Sony XVS-8000 (XVS8000, XVS/8000, xvs-8000) Multi-Format Video Switcher
The latest generation XVS-8000 multi-format video switcher delivers massive benefits in terms of flexibility and operability for top end production, giving you the ability to realise a powerful mixed environment with SDI and IP. Utilising the flexible ICP-X7000 X-Panel assignable modular design, you can configure the control panel to suit your specific operations.
The XVS-8000 provides you with a similar 4K production capability as you get with HD. Support of Networked Media Interface (NMI) also places the switcher at the heart of the new generation IP Live production system. The advanced features and operational flexibility of the XVS-8000 make it Sonyâ€™s most advanced flagship production switcher offering ultimate quality combined with significant return on investment.
IP Live switcher
The core of the new generation IP Live production system supports Networked Media Interface (NMI) to realise a mixed SDI and IP environment.
Powerful 4K switcher
4K production capability similar to HD production, with 5 M/E, 40 inputs, 12 assignable outputs for 4K and format converter outputs, plus up to 10 full keyers and 10 sub keyers, enabling simultaneous 4K and HD operation, and powerful 4K features.
Evolutionary switcher controller
The XVS-8000 utilises the ICP-X7000 X-Panel for very flexible panel configuration with a modular style design, OLED display, RGB XPT buttons and LCD button pad. The button layout is also re-designed. The X-Panel has a flexible mounting style for flat or curved mounting, or even for splitting into two positions.
Flexible and scalable configurations
The processors of the XVS-8000 can be configured to suit the exact needs of each particular user in terms of operation, resolution, frame rate, number of I/Os, number of M/E banks, and more.
5 M/E for large 4K production systems
5 M/E functionality enables you to operate with different video formats per M/E, allowing 4K and HD simultaneous operation.
Variety of M/E mode selections
Using the advanced mix effect modes in the XVS-8000, one bank can be configured to control not only the main M/E output, but also a sub mix from that M/E. This Double M/E Mode is perfect for producing multiple outputs of the same event, for example "clean" and "dirty" feeds of a soccer match from within the same M/E.
Simplified live operations with programmable macros
Macros are extremely useful in live environments when time is critical and there is no tolerance for making operational mistakes. Using the FlexiPad module, or the 10-key Pad module, users can simply record operational sequences, then store and assign them to any desired button. Not only can macros record complex panel operational sequences, but menu operation can also be recorded as a macro. Macros can be edited either directly from the control panel or by using the touch-screen menu display.
Flexible X-Panel assignable modular design
The ICP-X7000 X-Panel offers very flexible panel configuration with a modular style design, OLED display, RGB XPT buttons and LCD button pad. The button layout is also re-designed. The X-Panel has a flexible mounting style for flat or curved mounting, or even for splitting into two positions. XPT FlexiPad allows function mapping customisation according to your operatorsâ€™ preferences.
