MCX-500 Multi-Camera Live Producer
Smart controls with configurable LCD Touchscreen
If you’re running the show on your own, you need controls that suit the way you work – intuitive and yet somehow also fully featured. The MCX-500 achieves this by carefully thought out physical controls that you will find easy to operate without looking away from the action for a second.
More advanced features can be tuned to your exact workflow requirements and mapped to an LCD touch-screen control with easily recognisable ICON buttons. Trigger the sophisticated effects you’ve pre-defined with a single touch on a user-defined ICON. It’s a robust, user-friendly system that’s easily extended to bring in additional team members as productions grow.
Mix between 8 video sources + 1 Title (total 9 inputs)
The switcher is designed to expand your operations for full control of a multi-camera shoot. There is no need to worry about swapping out inputs during a production – the MCX-500 features no less than 8 video inputs (plus dedicated Title input) to easily accommodate any small-to-medium sized production. Inputs include professional 3G-SDI (x4), standard HDMI (x2) and even composite video (x2), allowing you to connect a wide variety of cameras and other equipment. A dedicated RGB Title input allows you to connect a PC or Mac to use as a dedicated source of titles for your production
See all your sources simultaneously on one display. The switcher’s multi-view output makes it easy for you to see all your sources and outputs on a single screen. Monitoring on the multi-view is always four inputs.
Stream content live over the internet
The MCX-500 is ideal for live streaming events and productions. The switcher allows you to live mix the output of multiple sources with direct streaming in real time using services such as Ustream®. Share scenes as they happen with high quality picture and sound, direct from the MCX-500 to a router via Ethernet – no PC required.
PC, Mac & Tablet integration
The MCX-500 is designed to allow you to control multi-camera shoots in the most flexible way possible. Plug-in an Ethernet cable or WiFi router to open up a fully functional control interface that can be viewed on a standard web browser with PC, Mac or Tablet. Use browser tabs to click between the Switcher’s main control panel and advanced settings, including the simple set-up of easily recognizable ICON buttons.
Audio mixing of up to 5 channels including XLR
You can perform a sophisticated multi-channel stereo audio mix in the MCX-500 with no need for an external audio mixer. With a stereo XLR (left/right) interface for external sources, the audio mixer function allows you to mix XLR inputs and 4 channels of embedded audio. You can control all five stereo channels individually, including intuitive audio level control on the LCD touch-screen control panel, mixing channels and also linking the audio to the video. Pre-Fader Listen (PFL) allows you to monitor each audio source before executing the mix.
Worldwide Full HD support
MCX-500 is a global model allowing you to record a variety of HD standards depending on your needs. You can record AVCHD Full HD 1920x1080 60i/50i or 1440x1080 60i/50i.
