Panasonic AG MX70 Digital Video Mixer

The AG-MX70 Digital Audio-Video Mixer from Panasonic is a versatile switcher with (8) inputs that functions as a digital video effects generator and an audio mixer. This unit comes equipped with everything you need to operate a digital post-production environment. Use this unit with 25Mbps DVCPRO VTRs in a digital editing system, as a switcher in the studio, or as your main unit at live events, among many other possibilities.

This unit supports broadcast-grade 4:2:2:4 digital component image quality and wipe patterns for both 16:9 and 4:3 image production needs. It also includes more than 600 effect patterns and other digital video effects, such 30-frame graphics buffer for roll, crawl and, logo animation. Titles and graphics created on a PC can be downloaded with the included MX-Navi application and superimposed for use in studio or live production programming.

The (8) inputs on this unit can all be used for analog composite feeds, or may be used as (4) analog component Y/Pb/Pr or YC inputs and (4) SDI inputs (SDI functionality is optional and requires a separate board). Each of the (8) inputs includes a tally output. This unit also includes (4) stereo inputs and (2) auxiliary mono inputs. One of the mono inputs may be used as a microphone input. Audio can additionally be linked or unlinked to video transitions. It also features a headphone jack and level meters are displayed on a graphical interface.

This unit’s large LCD panel includes a matrix menu that facilitates operation of the mixer. A joystick controller also allows you to more intuitively control the mixer’s tools. Other control features include a numeric keypad and (13) preset patterns that can be stored in memory.
