  • Excerpt: We purchased this mixer to augment our media production unit at church and all I can say is that it's great quality for this price. It's really easy to setup and would definately recommend to anyone looking for an affordable mixer.My only critique is that I wish it had some more output ports.

Great switcher!!!

  • Excerpt: A great switcher for a good price. At first I was hesitating between the Sony and the BlackMagic ATEM. I'm glad I bought this one. You get 4 HD/SD SDI inputs, 3 HDMI inputs and one DVI-I. Also you get 4 aux out. The description isn't 100% clear on this...but any outputs can be anything you want, like a source, a pgm, pvw, aux pgm, etc. Great piece of equipment!

Great Switcher, Small Package

  • Excerpt: Wonderful switcher in a small package. First time I used it, setup was fairly easy. Having two other outputs than can be controlled separately is a great feature, just haven't figured out if there is an easy way to tie them to the main bus and switch back to independent control. Also wish it could do a little scaling, for example, bringing in RGB input like the Roland V-40HD Multi-Format Video Switcher, but with computers going to HDMI, this should be less of a problem.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Professional Quality
  • Cons: Lacks Functionality

Not So Much Multiformat

  • Excerpt: I want to use this switcher for a 3 camera setup and a scan converted computer input for BOE meetings. My intention has been to purchase this switcher so that I could slowly transition to HD. I have 3 panasonic awe-300a cameras which have component outputs and composite outputs. I am transitioning from a MX70 to the MCS-8M. I've had many frustrations with the MX70 like the lack of a key and the limited audio channel inputs.
  • Pros: Almost multiformat
  • Cons: Limited Compatibility, Limited Competition, Poor Design
