The VSW-1 video switcher can be used with Pioneer $B!G (Bs revolutionary DVJ-X1 to complete all of the video source switching. This eliminates the need for multiple independent devices or more than one DJ/VJ to operate the system.
The beauty of the VSW-1 is in its simplicity. The face of the unit has a red Auto button and two large illuminated buttons, styled after the Play / Cue buttons of the DVJ-X1. The switcher can be used to switch manually between video sources by pressing the corresponding button. The VSW-1 also gives the DJ/VJ more freedom and flexibility in the mix with the familiar faderstart capability found in many Pioneer Pro DJ mixers and players. The DJ/VJ can automatically switch video sources when using the faderstart on the audio mixer.
This video switcher accepts multiple video connections (component, composite and S-Video) in both PAL and NTSC formats, although the VSW-1 does not convert from one format or connection type to another for output. A Video Sync connection with the DVJ-X1 is used for a professional flicker-free video source transition. (Embedded image moved to file: pic19668.pcx)
