Kula AV is a powerful, multiformat all-in-one system that mixes SDI video (with or without embedded audio) and AES digital audio, and has built-in multiviewer capability. Designed to support the needs of smaller operations, this compact system allows a single operator to have everything they need at their fingertips for compelling corporate, house of worship, and small venue productions such as sports, events, conferences and education.

In addition to Kula’s recognized 1080p production switcher performance, the Kula AV simplifies configuration and control with Grass Valley’s FormatFusion3 technology, which auto-senses and seamlessly converts any combination of SD, HD and 1080p to the required output for unrestricted mixing of video signal types across all inputs and output. A graphics interface allows quick editing and loading of high-end graphics. The system’s integrated audio mixing capabilities include embed/de-embedding, clean and quiet audio switching, and audio-follow-video mode. With Kula AV, professional-looking productions are easy to achieve.

All of these features are packed into a compact 2 RU mainframe with a convenient 19-inch wide rackable control surface suitable for fly-packs. Also included in the package is the Mav Audio Fader module. Kula AV may be a compact production switcher but it packs a huge punch.
