Enhanced Capability for Snell & Wilcox Kahuna Switchers

Snell & Wilcox has launched a new 3D digital video effects package for use with the company's Kahuna production switchers. The Impakt DVE option provides up to four twin-channel 3D DVEs for use in either SD or HD. Effects include rolls, ripples, peels, fragmentation warps, tiling and zooms. The option fits into existing Kahuna mainframes and requires no additional connections.

"Kahuna Impakt DVEs give TDs complete control over the desired effects, and power to apply them in SD, HD or both modes simultaneously. This ensures that Kahuna operators can easily achieve the high production values that clients demand without having to utilize a dedicated outboard DVE unit," said Joe Zaller, Snell & Wilcox marketing vice president.

The effects can be controlled from either the switcher control surface or a separate single M/E kahuna control panel.
