New Barco switchers for rental and staging

Barco is expanding its image processing portfolio with a series of digital and multi-format switchers. The PDS series includes three models: PDS-701, PDS-901 and PDS-902 and all models include one 3G/HD/SD SDI and four universal analogue inputs.

The 701 model features two DVI inputs and the 901/902 models have 4 DVI inputs. The PDS-902 extends the functionality of the switcher by adding a preview output. The analogue and DVI inputs support the EDID 1.3 specification.

With the PDS, users can capture and store up to three images that can be used as a logo source during a presentation. Built-in test patterns are also provided.

The PDS is designed for live events, boardrooms, houses of worship, education and training facilities, and fixed installations.
