Datavideo Showcast 100 Switcher - An Innovative, Compact, Easy to use and All-in-one.

Datavideo SHOWCAST 100 is a brand new 4K 4-Channel All-in-one Productio Studio that features 7 major functions. It can switch video, overlay text and graphics, control cameras, live stream, record, and mix audio all from a single unit. Similar to a tablet, the 14-inch touch panel allows easy and intuitive access to switcher functions.

4K HDMI connections for inputs and outputs for connecting to a 4K projector or an IMAG screen. RJ45 connections for controlling up to 3 PTZ cameras via serial protocol.

4K60p 4-Channel Touchscreen Switcher

The touch panel allows easy and intuitive access to a variety of switcher functions. The SHOWCAST 100 has many functions with easy setup.

The unique all-in-one design streamline your video production workflow by reducing the number of external devices that you need to connect. SHOWCAST100 is light and compact. Its mobility makes it ideal for any live production environment.

Direct Access to Auto Tracking Features

Gain immediate access to the auto tracking feature using a range of external controllers.

Beyond traditional camera controls, activating auto tracking on SHOWCAST 100 is also straightforward and convenient.

PIP and Split

PIP is often required in video production. Most of the time, the PIP window size need to be adjusted for the program view. The SHOWCAST 100 allows you to drag different sliders on the touchscreen UI with your finger to set the aspect ratio of the PIP window. The split window is usually used for live interview, corporate presentations, and panel discussions.

Camera Control

The SHOWCAST 100's built-in camera control functions allow you to simultaneously control three PTZ cameras. You can directly save the lens position presets, pan and tilt positions in real time and zoom in and out of a shot. In addition, you can adjust the white balance, iris and mirror mode of each camera.

Powerful Camera Presets

Even though SHOWCAST 100 can control only three PTZ cameras, you can save up to four presets per camera, giving you a total of 12 different angles for your production. The 12 memory presets allow the director to instantaneously switch between different camera angles on SHOWCAST 100 by pushing corresponding preset buttons.

Dual Streaming

During video production, you can simultaneously stream to two live streaming platforms such as Facebook, Youtube and Twitch. With Datavideo dvCloud, you can stream to 25 live streaming platforms at the same time and automatically back up your video files on the cloud server.

14 Inch Touch Screen and Intuitive Operation using the Touchscreen UI

The traditional physical keyboard of the switcher is replaced by a professional touchscreen UI to allow video switching, activation of subtitle overlay, camera control, video recording, audio mixing, etc. Operating of these functions is intuitive and easy to learn, even to novice users.

The SHOWCAST 100's intuitive touchscreen UI has several buttons with each assigned of one function only. The pane-like design divides the functions into different groups. Like a tablet, the touchscreen UI is intuitive and easy to use.

Audio Mixing

The 4 Channel Audio Mixer accepts embedded audio, two LINE input channels, one AUX channel and one HDMI audio channel, giving you the ability to mix the audios while processing the image.

The SHOWCAST 100 has two XLR/6.3mm composite ports for LINE inputs. The dual channel RCA port is designed for analog audio input. The RCA output serves to connect external audio equipment for audio monitoring.
