Model Details

4-input multi-format switcher with digital effects.Includes over 300 preset effects, wipes and mixes.Includes chroma keyer and color corrector as standard.Options include the BKDF-301 3D effects board and the BKDF-504 8-bit downstream keyer board.Inputs 1-3 can be either component, Y/C or composite.Input 4 can be RGB or component (Y/R-Y/B-Y).


  • 8-bit digital component video switcher
  • Up to 500 2D and 3D digital effects including page turns, page rolls, spheres and waves
  • Built in transcoding with Component, Composite and Y/C inputs/output
  • RGB, RGB/S inputs
  • Built-in chroma keyer and luminance keyer
  • Built-in black burst outputs and 31 color backgrounds
  • 8-bit Linear Downstream Keyer option
  • All input signals are processed in the digital component domain
  • Inputs 1-3 accept signals in three different formats, composite, Y/C (S-Video) and component (Y/R-Y/B-Y). The fourth channel accepts either component (Y/R-Y/B-Y), R/G/B/Sync or an R/G/B signal from PCs and other image processing equipment. Simultaneous outputs in component, Y/C and composite.
  • 31 backgrounds including embossed patterns, variable colors, grid patterns, color bar and black are provided. Three mattes for color background, border and effect can be generated as standard.
  • A FRGD source such as a title, caption or figure can be self-keyed over a BKGD source and rotated, compressed and positioned optionally in 3D space.
  • The built-in chroma keyer superimposes video from a FRGD source onto a BKGD source. Clip and Hue can be controlled to provide clear and sharp key edges.
  • If the input signal color level is incorrect, fine adjustment is available in the unit.
  • When used with a Sony Editing Controller such as the PVE-500 or RM-450, the DFS-300 allows two-machine editing with effects.
  • Eliminates need for TBCs on VTR. Even live camera sourcescan be input to the switcher and be locked instantly.
