The basic concept is straightforward: the output of a single 4K/UHD camera is connected to KMU-100, which then displays up to four 16×9 user-defined cropped windows that are sent out as four separate HD signals through 3G HD-SDI. These user defined windows can be scaled to zoom in on a particular subject that you would like to highlight on the 4K signal. An additional 4K camera can be connected to allow up to eight defined outputs from the two 4K signals.
Multi-camera production from a single source
In essence, with KMU-100 a single 4K camera can be used to deliver a true 4-camera HD production, without the need to install, manage, operate and balance multiple cameras. KMU-100 is quick to set up and exceptionally easy to use. It saves time, money and resources: with the KMU-100, all you have to do it set up, cable, power and control just one camera.
As an option, the Datavideo RMC-185 camera controller can be added to easily pan, tilt, and zoom to create the user defined windows on the 4K signal.
You can set up shots in advance and save them as presets, or you can do it in real-time.
