Sony is proud to introduce the latest member of the XVS family of production switchers. The XVS-G1 inherits many of the well-established features and architecture from the current models and adds cutting-edge technology for a range of visual processing enhancements. The all-new 4RU processor is combined with a range of four stylish new control panels plus a newly-developed web-based operational menu for efficient and simple installations.

The XVS-G1 builds on the success of the MVS-3000A and MVS-6530 switchers, bringing full HD and 4K(UHD) capacity at an affordable price. Configurable from 1 to 4 M/E banks, the XVS-G1 offers 16 full-feature keyers with up to 48 inputs, 24 outputs in HD mode, or 24 in, 12 out in 4K(UHD). These features make it the perfect choice for small to mid-size studios, fly packs, faith-based communities, universities, corporations and OB production units.

The XVS-G1 introduces a hybrid architecture which augments the well-proven video processing structure of the XVS series with an optional GPU-based effects and graphics module. Its configuration retains a central processing unit (CPU) and field-programmable gate array (FPGA), while adding an optional graphics processing unit (GPU). This helps ensure high performance and flexibility with visual processing enhancements while maintaining high reliability and stable operation. High-speed processing, enabled by the hardware at 4K(UHD)* resolution, and High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging, means virtually no compromises in performance and speed for real-time processing and ultra-low latency. High-density, high-resolution video processing using the latest software
technology provides versatility and upgradability. The XVS-G1 system offers an affordable and flexible solution to meet the creative needs of today’s live productions.

The XVS-G1 offers new creative features including a built-in clip player, 3D digital multi-effects, extra still logo keys, and new multi-viewer functionality. HDR is also supported with Sony’s SR Live workflow and multiple HDR format conversion options.
The optional GPU pack provides a file-based clip player, integrated for the first time in a Sony live production switcher. There are four channels in HD mode and two channels in 4K(UHD) mode. Multiple clips can be stored and replayed, each with a maximum duration of up to 60 minutes for both HD and 4K(UHD) content.. Widely- available AVC codec files in MOV or MP4 container formats are supported.

Media files are easily and instantly loaded into the internal SSD storage directly from any network-connected device via a web browser. The user-friendly style of the clip player and switcher minimizes preparation and setup time, simplifying live operation.
