Title: Switcher/scaler recommendations
Post by: eric lenasbunt on July 03, 2014, 11:59:45 pm
Looking for recommendations for a switcher/scaler that can handle about 4 various inputs and output 2 different sources at once.

Looking to be $1500 ish...

Used to use a Kramer VP729, but don't recall being able to use multiple outputs at once...

Black magic will switch but not scale AFAIK

So you want a matrix router with scaling and possibly format conversion then.  What format are your inputs and what format do you want the outputs in?  It's easy to do if you were fine with one output and don't want SDI.  Do you need seamless switching?
