The centerpiece of LMG’s HD-1 portable production system is the Snell & Wilcox Kahuna switcher.
LMG is using the Snell & Wilcox Kahuna SD/HD production switcher to enable a video production truck in a box with multi-format capabilities.
LMG custom-engineered HD-1, which provides all of the capabilities of a mobile truck in easily shipped containers. As the system's centerpiece, the Kahuna switcher allows HD-1 technicians to intermix HD and SD sources in the same switching system.
The Kahuna allows HD-1 users to combine HD and SD material, work with both 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios, and play out HD content while recording a Betacam or DigiBeta version for archiving purposes.
