Datavideo Makes Products That Help People Do Shows



DataVideo logoWhether you are just getting into video production and live streaming, or if you are a seasoned professional at it, you are going to need the right gear to help you get the job done. DataVideo is a live production manufacturer that creates products that help people to do shows.

Don spoke with Managing Director of Datavideo Craig Moffat. They discussed two of Datavideo’s multitude of products: The DAC-70 and the NVS- 25.

The DAC-70 is an up/down cross converter. It has been described as a “Swiss army knife” and is their most popular product. It is made of durable aluminum. The DAC-70 converts from one format to the other: from SDI to HDMI or from HDMI to SDI. It can slide into a rack, and a studio can use multiple DAC-70 converters if they need to.

The NVS-25 is a video streaming server/recorder. It lets you stream any video source. It functions as a dedicated server that encodes your video and streams it. Point it towards the URL of wherever you stream at. Turn on the NVS-25, and it will always go to that site. There is also a drop down menu you can put your URL into. It takes ten minutes to set up, and you don’t have to set up more than once if you are always streaming at the same URL. You can attach a USB storage device to the front of the NVS-25 and record your video onto it.

The DAC-70 is available now at the Datavideo website at MSRP $500. The NVS-25 is also available now at the Datavideo website at MSRP $800.

Datavideo SE-700 is a Feature-Rich Hardware Video Switcher



SE-700 switcherVideo switching technology has come a long way over the years. No longer is it necessary to have a giant console full of confusing controls. And even tho much can be accomplished these days using only a computer, some webcams and a software-based switcher, some producers still need a dedicated hardware solution. That’s where the Datavideo SE-700 comes in.

The SE-700 comes with a total of four video inputs, two SDI and two HDMI. There’s one upstream keyer, supporting chroma key and linear/luma key as well as one upstream PIP, supporting chroma key and luma key modes as well as unkeyed mode. For transitions, the SE-700 comes with a wipe generator that contains 32 patterns, including circle and heart with borders and softness control, along with cut and mix options. The unit also features one DSK and a full M/E preview function. The SE-700 also comes with a built-in frame store that has a dedicated stills buffer with up to 24 images stored on an SD Card.

Datavideo Delivers for Video Producers



Datavideo

The Datavideo Corporation produces a wide range of gear for the audiovisual professional including all the equipment needed for live production, from cameras to switchers and encoders. The Gadget Professor takes a keen interest and interviews Craig Moffat from Datavideo on its own brand products.

Although Todd at GNC broadcasts out of a real studio, some of the independent producers use virtual sets to make the presenter appear in newsroom or similar. It’s a step beyond the well known “green screen” as the whole environment is reproduced, not just the patch behind the presenter. Datavideo’s TVS-1000 Virtual Studio provides a virtual set for one camera at $5,995 and is aimed at the school and education markets.

For those out-and-about, the portable HS-2200 Studio in a Box might be of more interest. With 2 HDMI and 6 HD-SDI inputs it can handle multiple cameras and additional extras, such DVR storage, can increase the functionality of the unit. Cost is around $7,000. There’s plenty more in the video.

Interview by Don Baine, the Gadget Professor. There’s some comedy gold in the background from 7’40” onwards…I think it might be Todd’s mother…
