Barco's FSN series is a high-resolution 3G enabled switcher that combines advanced multi-format production and presentation switching in one highly integrated unit. The FSN integrates input conversion, multi-viewing, digital video effects and output conversion into a single 6 RU chassis.
By seamlessly integrating multiple video and computer graphics formats on a common platform, the FSN series provides a streamlined package that's modular, easy to operate, and easy on your budget. The FSN allows control of two full mixer-effect (M/E) busses from its control panel as well as the program mixer. Additional auxiliary output cards can be installed for up to 16 AUX outputs, 8 additional mixers, or multi-format outputs and blending.
The FSN-1400 ships with the System and Mixer/Effects cards pre-installed in the chassis. Additional cards are added to the FSN-1400 to meet the specific application requirements. In addition to the user defined custom configurations, the FSN-1400 is available from the factory in five pre-configurable models:
- FSN3G-1004: FSN-1400 with 5xUIC, MVR, 2xUOC
- FSN3G-1802: FSN-1400 with 1xNIC, 5xUIC, 2xDVE, MVR, 1xUOC, 1xNAC
- FSN3G-1804: FSN-1400 with 1xNIC, 5xUIC, 2xDVE, MVR, 2xUOC
- FSN3G-2002: FSN-1400 with 1x NIC, 6x UIC, 2x DVE, MVR, 1x UOC, 1x NAC
- FSN3G-2004: FSN-1400 with 1x NIC, 6x UIC, 2x DVE, MVR, 2x UOC
Additional custom configurations are available from the factory (BTO) upon customer request.
In addition to the FSN-150 controller, the FSN-1400 can be controlled from the FSN-GC, a graphical interface program that can run from a Windows or Mac PC. The FSN-GC can run standalone or in parallel with the FSN-150 providing backup capability to the system.
