Overture1™ and Overture2™ — Echolab's new Overture1™ (1 ME) and Overture2™ (2 ME) switchers combine internal conversion and synchronization with powerful key layering and special effects. In addition to four ME keys and two downstream keyers, which enable title keying for graphics, logos, and bugs, the Overture family features unique Stinger™ and SuperSource™ keys that make it easy to achieve expert transitions with minimal effort.
The unique Stinger transition is a special "take block" keyer with combined mix/wipe and graphic control that reduces complex animated transitions to a single button press. The Overture switchers' new SuperSource™ allows the operator to build a custom layout using DVEs and graphics and then assigns the composition to a crosspoint button. A DVE key in each "take block" enables instant transition effects.
Overture switchers accept up to 32 multiformat analog and digital signals and provide as many as 16 multiformat outputs. The Overture switchers' internal frame synchronization helps to ensure the quality of effects and, along with internal conversion and up to 34 internal graphics/still stores, eliminates the need for external systems, further streamlining the workflow and reducing the cost of creating a sophisticated on-air look.
