The Barco ScreenPRO II High Resolution Seamless Switcher is a multi-layer video display system that combines seamless switching with a variety of flexible video effects for live event staging and fixed installation applications. It provides seamless switching between multiple video sources.
ScreenPRO II uses four image layers (Unscaled Background, up to two scaled PIP’s or Keys, and an unscaled Downstream Key) to produce sophisticated effects, including transitioning backgrounds, transitioning PIP’s, wipes, dissolves, and keys.
The switcher has native high-resolution background channels independent of the PIP/KEY processing channels. Other features include 10-bit processing, 1:1 Pixel Sampling, 3:2 and 2:2 Pull Down Detect, low video delay, aspect ration correction, image cropping, and Motion Adaptive De-Interlacing (SD and HD).
ScreenPRO II features simple operation: the user selects a video via ScreenPRO II’s front panel interface and the selected video is automatically scaled to match the projector’s native resolution and displayed on the Preview monitor. Size, position, contrast, brightness, and color balance parameters corresponding to the selected input source are automatically restored from a setup file. If required, the user can adjust any of these parameters before transitioning the video to the Main output. Once any image adjustments are complete, the operator selects the type of transition and the video is seamlessly transitioned onto the Main screen.
