Live quad channel HD switching and recording

Live switch four 1080p channels and record each as separate ISOs. Switch between feeds intuitively on-screen with hard cuts. Save space by replacing several boxes in your rack with a single Sumo19.  (Note that fades and pre-rehearsed effects are also possible for actioning with Final Cut XML export – see attached video for details).

Two stereo balanced XLR inputs with 48V

Use full size XLR connections with 48V Phantom power to connect two external microphones with balanced analogue audio recording and monitoring. The Sumo19 has dedicated meters, gain controls and adjustments for frame delay on each channel. Mic or line level audio can be seamlessly synchronized with embedded audio from HDMI and SDI sources.

Seamlessly connect any SDI or HDMI device for monitoring and recording. Cross convert between HDMI 2.0 and 1.5G/3G/6G/12G/Quadlink & Dual link 12G SDI in almost any combination and eliminate the need for specialist converters.
