A Rival to High-End Switchers in Performance and Ease of Operation into a Compact, Integrated Body

Live Switcher

(AV-HS410N, AV-HS410E)

High-End Performance and Functions in a Compact Body. A User Interface Designed for Live Operation, and Plug-in Compatibility for Easy Expansion.

  • Six Standard Outputs: Five SDI and One DVI
  • Optional: Additional Four inputs/Four outputs maximum

Nine Standard Inputs/Six Standard Outputs (Max. 13 Inputs/10 Outputs)

The AV-HS410 comes standard with Nine inputs (Eight SDI (HD/SD) and One DVI-D) and Six outputs (Five SDI (HD/SD) and One DVI-D). Two expansion slots accommodate either input or output optional boards, providing a maximum of 13 inputs, and 10 outputs.

HD/SD Multi-Format Support

The AV-HS410 supports standard HD/SD multi-format, including 1080/24PsF. System frequency is 59.94 Hz/50 Hz/24 Hz switchable. This makes the system ideal for digital cinema production and worldwide operation. A wide range of optional boards also allows the input and output of analog component and various other signals. (Please see the table below for more details.)

Various Switching Functions and High Image Quality are Achieved with an Intuitive User Interface.

Built-in Frame Synchronizer for All Input Channels

All input channels feature a built-in frame synchronizer for use in switching unsynchronized video signals. A gen-lock function also supports synchronizing systems based on external sync signals (black burst or tri-level).

Up-Converter, Dot by Dot and Video Processing

The AV-HS410 is equipped with an SD/HD up-converter function for four inputs, and a dot by dot function for eight inputs. Dot by dot input can be used for P-in-P display of HD images from SD footage without degradation. A video processing function with color correction is also provided for eight inputs.

Four Aux Buses and Two P-in-P

Two P-in-P buses and four Aux buses are provided. Borders and software effects can be applied to the P-in-P buses. In addition to a Cut transition, the bus transition function (P-in-P bus and Aux bus switching effect) also enables a Mix transition (Aux 1 only). Flexible operation is achieved by combining Aux buses and M/E sections.

Versatile Transitions and Effects

New Video Memory Function for Two Inputs

Two inputs for still (STILL) or moving (CLIP) images can be saved in Video Memory, and selected as bus footage. Moving pictures can be recorded and played with key signals (for a maximum of approximately 20 seconds/600 frames with 59.94i). Moving picture and still files can also be transferred from an SDHC/SD Memory Card or PC by a LAN network.*

* The software of the camera recorder may need to be upgraded depending on the version of the AV-HS410. Please refer to the service and support on the Panasonic Website (

Shot Memory

Up to 100 image effects, such as background transition patterns, P-in-P sizes and border widths, can be registered in shot memory for instant retrieval. The AV-HS410's Effect Dissolve function enables smooth switching from a current image to one of the images or operations registered in the shot memory.

Expanded Functions with Plug-in Software and Optional Boards

Plug-in Software Created with a Software Development Kit*

*1: When external synchronization is selected as the reference signal setting, the reference signal is input. When internal synchronization is selected, the reference signal is output.
*2: When external synchronization is selected as the reference signal setting, the signals are looped through output. When internal synchronization is selected, the reference signal is output.
*3: Two sets of the same output signals are distributed from SDI OUTPUT 1.
*4: Use a crossover cable when connecting the unit and another device on a 1:1 basis without going through a switching hub.
*5: Use a switching hub.
