The standard configuration provides three key layers per M/E, 16-to-32 inputs, chroma key capability, (1 each per M/.E), a four-frame still store, and 100 wipe patterns.

The new video 30’ x 50’ production center, complete with a lighting grid and four Ikegami HL-40 cameras (with switchable aspect ratio) is located in the campus library building.

A variety of educational and marketing videos will be produced and distributed among the college’s students, via videotape and a new VOD system that will be available to the student body from any computer.

The Hanabi series HVS-3000S is a two-M/E video switcher that’s suited for live 525/60 (NTSC) and 625/60 (PAL) production.

The flexible SD switcher is fully expandable, including the addition of up to four floating DVE channels and eight or 12 component serial digital inputs.

The virtual set system will be demonstrated at the video production center’s open house event this month.
