One Box System
The HVS-500HS uses an integrated main unit and operation unit to provide HANABI's trademark compact body and enhanced mobility design for enabling superior portability and usage in any possible operating environment.

DSK with Chroma Key Function
The HVS-500HS includes one DSK channel with a chroma key function as standard features.

Freely-Assignable DSK
DSK can be assigned to either PGM, AUX 1, 2, or 3.

Two Still Stores
The basic input provides two still stores. USB memory is supported for importing images created on a workstation or exporting still stores.

HD/SD Switchable
HVS-500HS is switchable between HD or SD formats by simply reinitializing the mode setup. It supports various HD formats such as 1080/60i and 720/60p and SD formats.
Supported formats;
HD formats: 1080/60i, 59.94i, 50i, 720/60p, 59.94p, 720/50p
SD formats: 525/60, 625/50, NTSC, PAL

Picture-in-Picture Function
A dedicated picture-in-picture function is provided with the basic configuration. This enables the building of composites with up to two reduced-size screens without using DVEs.
Wide Array of Effects
In addition to the regular MIX transitions, NAM, FAM, and WIPE transitions are available. The HVS-500HS has 100 different preset wipe patterns.

Process Control
Both input and offset levels can be independently adjusted, enabling easy color correction and color matching on-site when using multiple cameras.

Gradation Matte
A vertical, horizontal, or diagonal gradation matte can be installed for assigning to backgrounds, wipe borders, and keyer mattes.


Fully-customizable Configuration
With the HVS-500HS, you can go beyond the standard configuration with customized inputs and outputs and a diverse array of other available options. Since you only add the required functions to match your operating environment or system, you can use different function combinations to transform the HVS-500HS into a switcher with performance optimized for your application.

System Configuration Examples
The HVS-500HS can be custom-tailored to fit your specific application. Here are some examples of ways that the HVS-500HS can be used.

Compact Editing System
The HD/SD-SDI I/O's provides a compact digital video switcher with up to 8 inputs and 5 outputs. If the editor interface is installed, the HVS-500HS can be fully utilized as an HD compatible compact editing system. When the up-converter feature is installed, SD contents can be used directly in HD editing. An analog output board can also be installed for output to consumer monitors for building a monitoring environment without high-priced monitors.

- HVS-50FS x1: FS/Still Store Card
- HVS-50UC x1: Up Converter Card
- HVS-50ED x1: Editor Interface Card



OB Van
The One-Box design with integrated main unit and operation unit enables installation even in the smallest of spaces. Because I/O's can be selected by the user, switcher upgrades are possible without wasting the equipment that you already have. By installing the frame synchronizer option direct input of video from not only asynchronous signal input devices, but also camcorders, STB, tuners, and other devices without external synchronization is possible. Even when not installed in an OB Van, the HVS-500HS is an ideal switcher for field productions that require mobility.

- HVS-50FS x1: FS/Still Store Card



Large Screen Output at Events
Digital and analog I/O's can be installed to enable user-controlled switching inputs from an HD camera, SD camera, PC video, VCR, and other devices for up to 12 inputs. The picture-in-picture function also includes two inputs for supporting output to large screens at events or for showing presentations with greater impact. When PC output is selected for the analog output, resolutions from VGA to SXGA are supported for using PDP and other large displays or projectors for showing high-resolution video on a wide variety of display devices.
