The Snell Kahuna will immediately enable 3sixtymedia to move to multiformat SD/HD operation.
UK-based 3sixtymedia has purchased a Snell & Wilcox Kahuna SD/HD production switcher for its Manchester Studios.
3sixtymedia purchased the Kahuna due to its capability for simultaneous SD and HD operations on the same control surface and in the same mainframe. Initially, the company will work in SD-only mode. After the refurbishment of its studio, monitoring, and infrastructure is complete, it will upgrade to multiformat SD/HD operation.
3sixtymedia purchased a 3M/E Kahuna system featuring a 4M/E option installed in the mainframe, a separate master auxiliary panel, six remote auxiliary panels, four channels of DVE, and an 80-input option. To give the system even greater power in mixed- or dual-format productions, the studio added new switcher options including ancillary data on the auxiliary output, a modulation option, and extended background FormatFusion.
