HD/SD 2M/E Digital Video Switcher
The 2M/E HANABI has made another dramatic advance by adding HD/SD multi-bit rate/multi-format support*, Real 3D digital video effects (DVEs), color correction, a wide range of expansion options for ensuring future compatibility, and a host of other functions. The HVS-3800 series offers functions and performance that are a step ahead of the competition. *HVS-3800HS only. The HVS-3800S is SD only.
HVS-3800HS is switchable between HD or SD formats by simply re-initializing the Operation Unit's mode setup. HVS-3800HS functions in various HD formats such as 1080/60i and 720/60p. Additional support includes 4:3 display generation in HD mode; or the choice of letter-box or squeeze display in SD mode. Thus, providing the preparation needed for up/down conversions.
HD formats: 1080/60i, 59.94i, 50i, 24p, 24PsF, 23.98p, 23.98PsF, 720/60p, 59.94p, 50p
SD formats: 525/60 (NTSC), 625/50 (PAL)
In addition to the HD/SD multi-bit rate/multi-format model, the lineup also includes the HVS-3800S model specifically designed for SD. It provides the full range of features included in the HVS-3800 series at a reasonable price.
By purchasing HVS-3800S, you don't have to worry about HD compatibility in the future. The HVS-3800S and HVS-3800HS share a common platform so when you examine converting to HD, you eliminate the need for additional investments to replace the main unit. Instead, you can upgrade to the HVS-3800HS for support of HD and SD with only a minimum amount of cost

The main unit incorporates a redundant power supply, DVE cards, additional function options, and a wide range of other functions in 4RU size. The additional function options also allow installation of a number of video peripherals for use of fewer system devices and reduced space.
Internal DVE cards can be installed for enabling effects. Up to 2 cards can be installed. HVS-38DVE2D designed for HVS-3800HS. It enables use of 1-channel DVE in HD mode or 2-channel DVEs in SD mode. Also HVS-38SDVE2D designed for HVS-3800S. It enables use of 2-channel DVEs in SD mode. The channels can be assigned to any bus (BKGD, KEY1, KEY2, and KEY3).
In additional to regular DVEs, users can also install a card for the most eye-catching feature of the HANABI series, real 3D DVEs.
Optional color correction functions can be installed in the primary and keyer. Process control, gamma corrections and various clip functions are all available. The parameters for any of these functions can be registered in the event memory to enable different changes to be made in the course of sequences.
Three color correction functions (balance, differential and sepia)
The HVS-3800HS offers a total of 6 keyers, with 3 keyers for each M/E (2 keyers + 1 DSK) as standard. This enables keying of up to 9 layers when re-entry of one M/E line is used. Chroma key functions are also available for KEY1 and KEY2 of each M/E. Up to 4 keyers can be used.
In addition to the standard 4 still stores, a memory card can be used to enable importing of image data from a PC and exporting images stored in the switcher. Logo animation and motion blur using divided areas of the image are also supported. Options can be added for two more still stores.
DVEs can be applied to the PGM, PST, KEY1, KEY2, and KEY3 buses for enabling transitions for the image using wipe or mix. This makes it easy to set picture-in-picture and other effects.
The Forced Background function allows mixing or wiping effects inside the digital effects image for more versatile renditions of effects despite being a 2M/E switcher.
The HVS-3800HS includes an event memory that can store the data for up to 200 events and setting conditions.
In addition to memory cards, HVS-38SS or HVS-38SSAM6/12 options can also be installed in the main unit. This enables storing of up to 200 still images files (in HD format) without using any external media.
*This option does not support recording or playback of the following formats:
1080/24p, 1080/24sF, 1080/23.98p and 1080/23.98sF
An optional frame memory HVS-38SSAM6/12 can be installed as an expansion function to enable storage and playback of movie files as uncompressed HD video.
- HVS-38SSAM6: HD: 3 sec., 2 ea. or SD: 19 sec., 2 ea.

With the HVS-38AUMV option, the HVS-3800 series can accommodate two 4 input systems that can show split-screen displays on a single screen. The inputs can be assigned to any section of the split screen display. This enables use of fewer monitors for checking the display input without any external devices.
Up to 4 channels can be installed for up converter input HVS-38UC or down converter output HVS-38DC*. This enables up-converted signals to be assigned to the M/E, AUX, and KEYER buses in the same way as external input and internal still stores.
*The down converter output allows installation of one channel only.
Support is provided for a wide range of editing protocols. Installation of the optional editor interface HVS-38ED enables connection of editors from various makers to this system. (Supported protocols: BVS-3000 and GVG-100)
