“Most HD chroma key systems are either complex computer-based solutions or are
embedded in sophisticated vision mixers. For users that simply need accurate and
affordable live keying in a portable device, the DVK-300HD is a great new option”
said Allan Leonhardsen of Datavideo’s distributor, Holdan.
Fitting into HDMI and SDI-based live environments, the keyer supports SD and HD
resolutions up-to 1080P. High resolution backgrounds are ingested via SDI, HDMI
or DVI. Such a variety of input connectors makes the device ideal for a variety of
workflows: backgrounds can be a live video feed, live computer graphic or a still
image, while the primary video can be ingested from virtually any digital camera.
