Snell & Wilcox intros 3-D DVE option for Kahuna switcher


To minimize setup time, Kahuna IMPAKT comes in ready-made models that allow operators to quickly and easily create compelling, dynamic transitions.
Snell & Wilcox is now offering a 3-D digital video effects (DVE) option for its multiformat SD/HD Kahuna switcher. The new Kahuna IMPAKT DVE gives users of the Kahuna up to four twin-channel 3-D DVEs that they can apply in SD, HD, or both.

The DVE can work in source-based or bus-based modes, allowing both background and fill-and-key manipulation. Kahuna IMPAKT provides a variety of effects including spheres, slabs, zooms, warps, tiling, ripples, rolls and peels, fragmentation, lighting effects and corner pinning. All these options are housed in the Kahuna’s 11RU mainframe and require no additional connections or extra rack space.

Kahuna’s networked architecture offers users the option of controlling the switcher’s DVEs directly from the main Kahuna control surface or from a separate 1-M/E Kahuna control panel for productions requiring a separate DVE operator. These DVEs can also be timelined, allowing for full key-frameable control, easy editing and pausing, and play/store recalls.

To minimize setup time, Kahuna IMPAKT comes with ready-made models that allow operators to quickly and easily create compelling, dynamic transitions.
