Karrera K-Frame S-series Switchers:

The new Karrera K-Frame S-series Video Production Center systems combine ultimate mid-range switcher performance, along with proven workflows and simplified control of complex productions, with multiformat support including 1080p and 4K. These unrivaled capabilities are offered as two system packages, with 3 M/Es or 2 M/Es, for exceptional affordability.

Karrera K-Frame S-series switchers deliver unmatched creative freedom for highly produced content, using up to 6 M/Es across two suites, with four keyers per M/E, and up to eight floating iDPMs. All this processing power is combined with high volume inputs/outputs (80x48 maximum) for outstanding versatility. The switchers are fully Future-Ready, with multiformat support including 1080p and 4K. Switching of 4K is offered without the need for any hardware or software upgrades. The compact 6 RU video frame delivers a high level of functional integration for space efficiency. It features built-in Image Store still/movie storage, and dual multiviewers for up to 28 windows with tally.
