Echolab Offers Inexpensive Upgrade To HD Production

A leading provider of professional video production switchers and broadcast tools, Echolab, has announced a compelling and cost-effective way for existing customers to migrate to HD production.
For a limited time, the company will replace a facility's existing Echolab Nova, Opera, or Overture standard-definition switcher chassis for an Echolab Atem, the company's recently launched 1-M/E multidefinition switcher.
Ankit Patel, Senior Product Manager at Echolab, said: "We hope that this upgrade offer helps mitigate some of our customers' concerns regarding their transition to HD production. Our clients keep their familiar panel and workflow, and simply replace the chassis. Because every input in the Atem switcher accepts SD signals, it is easy to swap out the old chassis and unlock the features and power of an Atem switcher - all at an unbeatable price."
Atem, Echolab's paradigm-busting I-M/E 3Gbps 1080p/60 production switcher, features the flexibility and functionality necessary to fit almost any production environment. Atem's ten mixed-format inputs with built-in synchronisation and scaling accept SD and HD signals, while two of them also accept computer signals over HDMI.
More features include an internal 32-frame still store, two channels of clip playback and a ten-channel multiviewer. To support sophisticated programme quality, Atem incorporates four upstream and two downstream keyers, as well as Echolab's unique SuperSource crosspoint and Stinger transitions, making it possible to build a composition of as many as 12 layers.
