Nearly all modern cameras and digital video devices use HDMI, the most common AV connector on the planet. The V-8HD seamlessly mixes eight HDMI sources with Full HD support, even when the sources have mismatched frame rates and color spaces. And with the built-in scalers on two of the HDMI inputs, you can easily interface with client-provided sources like computers, tablets, smartphones, gaming consoles, and legacy 4:3 devices.
The Power of More
Creative professionals need more video inputs for layered graphics and visual effects, and business professionals often need multiple backup video sources. Having the ability to meet all these needs brings satisfied clients and greater audience engagement. With the V-8HD’s generous number of HDMI inputs and outputs, you’re able to offer clients a vast amount of creative freedom—without increasing the budget.

And it only weighs around 4 lb./2 kg, making it easy to carry in a backpack or luggage. With its solid T-bar fader and robust hands-on controls, eight HDMI inputs, 18-channel audio mixer, and support for external battery power, the streamlined V-8HD is the most versatile and efficient HDMI switcher available.
