Snell & Wilcox gives birth to baby Kahuna

Snell &Wilcox has introduced a compact version of its popular multiformat Kahuna production switcher. Targeted at small and medium-sized applications, the new version is for users who require a one or two M/E production switcher.

The scaled down compact switcher retains the SD/HD capability and other features of the full-sized system, including Impakt 3-D DVD options. The new 6-RU mainframe supports up to two full M/E banks and four tiles of DVE, and can be used with a broad range of full-sized and compact Kahuna control panels.

The system's networking capabilities enable users to assign M/Es and DVE power dynamically to individual panels. The system can also be easily upgraded to accommodate a facility's growth.
