Features

Multi viewing function
The BRS-200 comes equipped with a multi viewing function, allowing a single monitor to display all input signals, PGM and PVW via SDI and/or DV-I outputs. This feature minimizes the number of displays required, and allows users to check all pictures at the same time on the same monitor.

Users have a choice of sixteen, ten, or four split-screens depending on the type of operation and the scale of the system.

Tally indicators are available: red frame for PGM out, amber square for PVW out, and blue square for controlled camera.
Rich Selection of Inputs and Outputs
The BRS-200 system offers four SDI inputs/outputs and one DVI output as standard. When a different input configuration is required, a variety of optional boards are available, allowing users to configure the system exactly as required.

With the addition of optional boards, the BRS-200 provides a maximum of eight SDI and one DVI-I inputs, and four SDI and two DVI-I outputs. With these multiple inputs and outputs, the BRS-200 enables image sources to be recorded on a recorder and to be played out, for example, on two monitors and one projector simultaneously.
Camera Remote Control Capability
The BRS-200 can also control the BRC Series cameras from a remote location. Pan/tilt/zoom, iris, and focus can all be controlled using its joystick and dials. This versatile functionality helps contribute to a highly efficient one-man operation.
Camera & Switcher presets.
The BRS-200 is able to store up to 99 camera pre-sets and 99 switcher snapshots. This makes operation easy in a live environment.
