LAN RJ-45 x 1
10BASE-T/100BASE-TX (For IP control)
Connecting cable:
LAN cable (category 5 or above), max. 100 m (328 ft), STP (Shielded Twisted Pair) cable recommended
• When connecting to a hub (switching hub), use a straight cable. Use a crossover cable when connecting the unit and computer on a 1:1 basis without going through a hub.
• Use with the same segment is recommended for the equipment which is connected to the unit. If the unit is connected to equipment whose segments are different, events
dependent upon the settings inherent to the network equipment, for instance, may occur so thoroughly check the connections with the equipment to which the unit will be connected prior to the start of operation.

So Many Options, So Many Boards

The AV-HS410 is compact and versatile with nine inputs standard (eight HD-SDI, one scaleable HD DVI-D) and is expandable using option boards to a maximum of 13 HD/SD switchable signal inputs. Five HD-SDI and one DVI-D outputs are also standard with option boards enabling expansion to a maximum of 10 outputs. Two expansion slots allow the simultaneous use of up to two AV-HS04M Series dual-channel input or output boards. 

Get on the AUX Bus

Four AUX busses are provided to enable versatile production workflow, with mix transitions available on AUX1. Dual PinP (with transition memories), one DSK, and an upstream keyer with 3D flying key and Primatte® Chroma key capabilities are also provided. Numerous high-quality 3D and 2D effects are available for transitions for both background and key. All input channels feature a built-in switchable frame synchronizer, while upconverters are available for four channels and 16-axis color correction for the eight standard HD-SD/SDI inputs. The HS410's system frequency is switchable among 60Hz, 50Hz, and 24Hz, enabling international operation and digital cinema style live switching.

Simple Operation makes Live so Easy

The HS410's user-friendly interface is distinguished by the 7" WVGA (800 x 480 pixels) color LCD monitor that in addition to displaying settings and menus can show input and output video, waveform monitor readings and even the Multiviewer display. MultiViewer configurations include assignable screen divisions into 4/5/6/9/10/16 sections and support the display of time, audio level meters and 4:3 markers. The switcher's simple panel layout features dedicated buttons for many common functions such as PinP 1/2, as well as A bus and B bus rows with 12 crosspoint buttons (22 with shift function) allowing easy access to a variety of internal and external sources.

Get Custom with It

Advanced features include dual-channel video/still clip player/recorders, 100 event memories, Effect Preview (for offline viewing of programmed effects), timeline editing and customizable Plug-in programs for external device control and many other applications. An SDK (Software Development Kit) is available from Panasonic to enable the creation of powerful custom Plug-in programs.
