Snell & Wilcox unveils 3-D DVEs, new control surfaces for Kahuna switcher

Snell & Wilcox has introduced IMPAKT, a suite of 3-D digital video effects for its Kahuna production switcher, and a variety of new control surfaces for the production switcher.

With IMPAKT, Kahuna now offers up to four twin-channel 3-D DVEs that users can apply in SD, HD or both. IMPAKT works in source-based or bus-based modes, allowing both background and fill-and-key manipulation. It also provides a variety of powerful effects, including spheres, slabs, zooms, warps, tiling, ripples, rolls and peels, fragmentation, lighting effects and corner pinning. The IMPAKT option is housed in Kahuna's 11RU mainframe and requires no additional connections or extra rack space.

Snell & Wilcox also has introduced compact versions of the 1-, 2-, and 3M/E control panels as well as a micro control panel. The new compact 2M/E and 3M/E panels let users integrate Kahuna in space-constrained environments, such as small trucks and studios. The new Kahuna 1M/E and micro panels provide the ability to have a specialist operator control the output from larger systems during a live event.
