The Ultimate Video Assist
The heart of the PSU-3X is a state-of-the-art integrated dual HD processor for high definition video input and output. HD takes are displayed in HD quality on the unit’s touch-screen, as well as on up to four outboard HD monitors.
Simultaneous recording and playback saves time. 2x and 1.3x anamorphic desqueezing expand your options.Users of the PSU-3X rave about the unit’s power attributes, which are far superior, especially in tough production environments.
Battery operation lasts six hours, with hot-swap capability eliminating headaches. AC power supply is also an option. Simplicity Ease of use is crucial to the on-set user of the PSU-3X. This operational simplicity might seem to conflict with the unit’s vast array of functions – many of them unavailable in any other system.
