Datavideo has come out with a table-top video switcher that uses a single 4K camera to make multiple shots for a band, panel discussion, and more. Best part is you can record or stream an event in a standard 16:9 landscape mode, or 9:16 portrait for social media.
About the KMU-200 Touch Screen Switcher
The unit allows for a single camera of up to 4K resolution to plug into the unit. You can also bring video in from a second source – such as a laptop video, along with 2 microphone inputs, and audio playback.
The unit is called a “Multi Channel Touch Screen Region of Interest” switcher. This means you take the large video, and split it up into scenes using the touchscreen.
If you have a band playing, for example, you can create regions for each musician to cut to, to make it feel like you’ve switched cameras. Each region can be moved and zoomed around so you can get the person in-frame.
Stream Your Event
Thie KMU-200 will send CBR video out in 1080p 10 Mbps to your favorite streaming service. You can also record up to 16Mbs (via SD card) or send to a viewing monitor. Video processes at 4:4:4, 4:2:2, or 4:2:0.
The unit has a 4-channel audio mixer built in.
