As a public, education, and government (PEG) channel in California, Napa Valley TV is up against top-tier TV networks in the fight for viewers. 1970s-style lousy video just won’t wash! Add the fact that a $20 annual membership fee gives each NAPA Valley TV volunteer the right to uses its production equipment, and the channel needed a video switcher that is as easy to operate and robust as it is professional-grade – in HD/4K, of course.
Find out how Napa Valley TV built the channel’s HD/4K anchor without going under. Learn how it is:
- capable of handling multiple cameras and supporting network-level switching
- easily operable with the push of a few buttons
- loaded with virtual sets and LiveMatte keying functions; including keying graphics on the virtual set’s monitors
- affordable and simple to install – and tough!
