The Datavideo SE-500 is a compact and light weight, four channel analogue input, digital processing video switcher with both S-Video (Y/C) and Composite Video inputs.
In addition to S-Video and Composite Video, the SE-500 also provides Component (Y:U:V) output, perfect for connection to DVD recorders, Hard drive recorders, LCD TV, Projectors and many others.
The SE-500 is ideal for applications within Education, Places of Worship, Seminars, Small Studios, Clubs, Pubs and many more.
One of the really uniquely features of the SE-500 is the ability to display all four input sources via a single quad output, the preview display also including a superimposed tally indicator on each input. This feature means you only need two video monitors - one for all four inputs, one for the program output.
Other features include effects (dissolve, fade, several types of wipes), Split screen, Picture in Picture (PiP) and Colour Processor.
The input sources are internally synched via a built in four channel 4:2:2 Time Base Corrector (TBC) & frame synchroniser, so no external synchronising (Genlock) of the cameras or sources is required for a perfect, glitch free and smooth transition.
The SE-500 can be manually operated via the illuminated push buttons (perfect when you work in low light situations) or controlled via standard RS-232 & MIDI interface.

The Datavideo SE-500 is also available as a turnkey Mobile Video Studio such as HS-500 or MS-500 and feature in our Mobile Chromakey Studio MS-DVK1
