The PDS series is designed to meet today’s requirements for a high-quality, easy-to-use and fast seamless switcher with more digital inputs at an affordable price. It is the perfect fit for mid-sized live events, breakout sessions, seminar rooms and boardrooms.
4K for you
The PDS-4K enables single screen and dual screen switching with high-quality 4K processing, and it can also support Dante® audio with the addition of an optional interface card*. It includes six 4K inputs and two 4K fully seamless mixing program outputs. Benefit from the ultra-low latency processing (≤ 2 frames delay @60Hz), smooth video display and seamless transitions between inputs to maximize audience engagement. Additionally, you can increase interactivity by showing up to two live inputs simultaneously with the available PiP layers*. And the Event Master AthenaTM scaling technology guarantees superior signal clarity and minimum scaling artifacts.
PDS: pretty darn simple
The PDS-4K switcher guarantees unsurpassed performances and outstanding visual experience while also being exceptionally easy to operate. With just one simple press on the buttons of the intuitive front panel interface, you can switch easily between the input sources and preconfigured layouts. What’s more, the PDS-4K is compatible with all the familiar Barco visualization solutions and presentation devices (e.g. ClickShare) without compromising on video quality. The PDS-4K can be controlled with Event Master Toolset, and thanks to the API it can also be combined with Barco Overture or other third- party control panels.
The PDS-4K is built for applications requiring the highest availability and uptime. The switcher also proves to be a smart investment well into the future with option cards to ensure expandability and future-proof upgradability.
