Echolab Inc., a provider of professional video production switchers and broadcast tools, has announced its Overture™MD (multiformat) line of production switchers will support the 3Gbps 1080p/60 video format.
The OvertureMD switcher's ability to accept and deliver signals in multiple formats — SD, 720p, 1080i, and 3Gbps 1080p/60 — enables it to fit seamlessly into almost any production operation. Internal analog-to-digital conversion and frame sync eliminates the need for external conversion devices, making production systems simpler, slashing investment and maintenance expenses, and reducing the risk of broadcast glitches. The addition of 3Gbps 1080p/60 also demonstrates Echolab's commitment to offering an easy upgrade path for Overture, rendering it an almost future-proof device. By the same token, owners of existing Overture MD switchers can easily add 3Gbps 1080p/60 support. Echolab's Overture1™ (1 M/E) and Overture2™ (2 M/E) are sleek, ergonomically designed multidefinition video production systems with a comprehensive range of intuitive tools for producing high-quality programming with stunning effects.
