JUST ANNOUNCED - COMING SOON!

The MCX-500 is an affordable, uniquely user-friendly and flexible production switcher that makes it simple for a single operator or small team to produce a broadcast quality live event. Multiple video inputs include professional 3G-SDI, HDMI, Composite Video plus dedicated DSK mean you can mix and match kit as needed for each production. Perfect for the recently announced HXR-NX5R!

New opportunities

Live events increasingly rely on video to attract customers, enliven presentations and turn a profit via live streaming or selling recordings. The MCX-500 is ideal for a wide range of live and recorded applications from pop concerts to weddings, educational seminars to corporate presentations, and sermons at houses of worship. Using the MCX-500, you can go beyond simply capturing an event to transforming it into an experience that engages everyone.

Meet any challenge

Today’s event might be simply mixing together multiple video inputs to support a presenter’s on-stage presentation. Tomorrow’s event might be creating a program for distribution across multiple screens in a vast conference hall. Next week’s event might be live streaming, either via PC or Mac or directly from the MCX-500 itself using Ustream® with a router*. Whatever the event, it’s simple to give your customer an immediate recording of the event thanks to a built-in SD Card slot – no external recorder needed or time lost assembling a post-event cut.

* In regions where Ustream® is not available, alternative services may be supported. Please consult with your local Sony Professional Solutions Specialist Dealer.

Events that excite and engage

Keeping an audience’s interest during an event can be challenging. The MCX-500 puts at your fingertips a set of features to easily transform any event: cut between multiple cameras with a wide-range of broadcast quality transitions, mix in a secondary video feed with picture-in-picture, put a presenter in front of live or recorded video using Sony’s broadcast standard chroma key technology. 8 video inputs, plus a dedicated DSK channel (total 9 inputs) for on-screen graphics and a 5-channel audio mixer give you everything needed to wow an audience.
